Australia is using less electricity but prices soar
 
How network companies lined their pockets and drove electricity prices through the roof

Since 2009, the electricity networks that own and manage our “poles and wires” have quietly spent $45 billion on the most expensive project this country has ever seen.

The spending was approved by a federal regulator, and yet the federal government didn’t even note it until it was well underway.
