Too lazy to dump Origin Energy

I have until recently been too lazy to dump Origin Energy as my electricity retailer in spite of knowing I was paying inflated prices. I'm not alone, the laziness tax many households pay to the big 3 retailers is far bigger than the carbon tax or any other green scheme, yet is largely ignored.

While debate rages as to whether households might save a cent per kilowatt-hour, or 3.5% of their bill, from slashing support for renewable energy, electricity retailers, at least in fully deregulated Victoria, are offering discounts of 20% and even 30% off their standard rates for new customers (no luck if you’re an existing customer).

It kind of makes you wonder if these guys can offer a discount of 20-30%, how much must they be gouging the customers who are on the standard rates?
