Energy Compare

Mr PEARSON (Essendon) —  I direct my adjournment matter to the Minister for Energy, Environment and Climate Change, and the action I seek is that her department conduct a workshop in my electorate to help senior Victorians and recently arrived migrants to register for the $50 power saving bonus. This has been a very successful initiative by the government, which was announced in the budget, but there is an issue for some people who might not be familiar with the internet or might have issues in terms of accessing the website to try and familiarise themselves with the bonus. I think that if there was a capacity to operate a workshop, that would provide a really good opportunity for senior Victorians but also newly arrived migrants in my community.
