Tenants Queensland, in partnership with QCOSS and QShelter, is currently undertaking research into the energy issues for tenants in Queensland.
Your feedback as a tenant is really important to us and to the research.
Please have your say and complete the survey here.
The survey will ask you about your rental situation, energy supply arrangements and any energy-related problems or issues you may have experienced as a renter. You also have the opportunity to say what changes you think could be made or measures that could be taken to address your concerns.
The survey will be open until 14 October.
QCOSS is also conducting face-to-face consultation sessions with service providers and phone or skype interviews with regional and remote service providers (contact Fiona Hawthorne at QCOSS on 07 3004 6901 or mobile 0423 344 316 to book a time).
The next face to face consultation for service providers:
Venue: Peoples Market, 2/2 Guara Grove, Pimpama 4209
Date: Thursday 6 October 2016
Time: 10:00am to 12 noon

Here are some points to consider for these discussions:
o What are some of the issues households in rental properties in your community face when it comes to energy?
o What is the one thing that would make the biggest difference to help renters with their energy costs?
o Do you know any renters who are being charged for electricity by their landlord / body corporate or caravan park owner?
o If you have provided assistance to renters with their energy, what was the nature of the issue and how did you address it?
