For many Australians, paying the power bill eats up more and more of the household budget. But why are we paying so much? We know that networks have overspent on poles and wires, and retailers have made millions with confusing and complex contracts. But, in the first of a three-part series, 7.30 can reveal price gouging by the biggest players in the energy generation market is another reason. (ABC 7:30 Power shock, 2019)

As Australia gets hotter and power prices increase, parts of the country's national grid are seeing longer and more frequent blackouts. Australia is still very dependent on coal to keep the grid running. The Morrison government has been looking at various new energy projects, including coal, even as our biggest energy companies complain that a lack of consistent policy on energy and climate change are hindering investment.
