Empowering remote communities: Experiences of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander customers using electricity pre-payment meters in Queensland Report

Abstract: This report presents the findings from QCOSS’ research into the experiences of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander energy consumers, living in remote communities in Queensland, where electricity is supplied using card-operated pre-payment meters. The research was triggered by substantial anecdotal evidence from the community sector about widespread instances of customers frequently going without electricity in these communities and being excluded from accessing energy concessions and rebates. QCOSS is concerned about the significant health, social welfare and economic impacts on households not having an affordable and regular supply of electricity.
