Aussie cotton farmers hail Au $10mn support package

Dec '16
Aussie cotton farmers have hailed the Queensland Government's decision to offer an Au $10 million regional business support package. The funding is designed to allow energy users to better understand their energy usage and billing, which would allow users to adjust in order to minimise costs and also includes funding for meters and impact trials.

The initiative will help better understand the impact of bills under different tariff options and promotion of energy audit services to cotton farmers.

Cotton Australia, the apex body for the Aussie cotton industry, however argued that the Queensland Government could do more to guarantee lower energy costs for farmers.

"The issue of electricity pricing is critical to cotton growers in Queensland, who have faced continuous price increases over a considerable length of time,” Cotton Australia general manager, Michael Murray said. (AR)
