Not possibly, almost certainly.

Yeah it was crazy what happened in Vic. It has given smart meters combined with ToU a bad name. But stopping the rollout was dumb - all...

11/04/2021 - 22:47
But the point is that you couldn't afford to do that if you're unemployed. Because you'd be paying two sets of rent and accomodation and...
