From Morning Report, 7:56 am on 5 November 2018

Soaring power prices are also hitting customers across the country because of low hydro lake levels and a prolonged outage at the country's largest gas field. The wholesale price of electricity was consistently higher than three-hundred dollars a megawatt throughout October - three times the average price at the same time last year. For independant retailers and their customers it's getting pricey. One of those is wholesale electrcity provider Flick Electric. Its chief executive is Steve O'Connor. He talks to Susie Ferguson.
