    KCCI Principal Partner Sponsors ACCC Carbon Tax ACCC Carbon Tax 16 07 12 The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission ACCC has today advised that it has received over 630 complaints and enquiries about the carbon price since the commencement of the carbon pricing mechanism on 1 July 2012 The highest category of complaints received has been about claims made by energy retailers especially in relation to price increases on electricity bills Over 250 consumers and businesses have reported concerns or asked questions about how the carbon price will affect their electricity and gas bills and whether the price increases communicated by energy retailers are appropriate The number of carbon related complaints and enquiries received so far is not a large proportion of complaints to the ACCC given that we received over 8350 general complaints in that period ACCC Chairman Rod Sims said Although complaint numbers are low we know these are important issues for people and we are working with businesses to ensure consumers are not duped into accepting a price increase they may otherwise question While the ACCC does not have a formal price monitoring role and is not responsible for calculating what the carbon price will be for
