A Minor Role

I've just received my latest electricity bill, and it included this little flyer showing the effect of Australia's carbon price relative to the other costs involved in electricity.

The tiny green box is the carbon price impact. The next two are power generation and retail/billing. The biggest one is network infrastructure (poles and wires).

The percentages might vary slightly from state to state, but the point is that the carbon price is not the major factor in electricity prices.
