  • Well done Coasty and others who have left Integral Energy. I am saving 15% as well. Also, this year I am saving about $300 on the comprehensive insurance of my car by switching to IBuyEco which also pays for my car's estimated annual carbon emission.

    Good to see people ignoring the Lieberal party fear mongering and lies peddled here relentlessly by stooges like Jonathon L Benson.

  • I just this second left Integral Energy for someone else (as a protest) & got a 15% discount. Show your disgust & leave Integral. It's really easy. The public is actually stronger than these companies. They can't make money if you don't use their electricity. So lets show Integral exactly what we can do & leave them en masse.

  • @Lance posting here - how true indeed. The labor party has more than proven to us right thinking Aussies that it should never, ever again be given the mantle of government anywhere. Just wanton,severely incompetent damned fools. It has enraged me so much I feel I should form a new political party with, yes, nuclear power for our electricity generation right across the board for Australia.And stuff the equally failed rorting Greens party too!

  • This story is disgraceful but then again not surprising disadvantaged people in our community are always targeted.Compassion should be shown to this man after all he is working paying taxes cut him some slack.
