The Indigenous Consumer Assistance Network’s (ICAN) research team was recently contracted by the Queensland Council of Social Service (QCOSS) to investigate the use of Power Box Meters and Power Cards in some of Queensland’s remote Indigenous communities. ICAN Research Officer Eddie Buli and CEO Aaron Davis interviewed 12 people on Palm Island this week and will be heading to Mapoon and Wujal Wujal in the coming weeks.
The information collected in these communities will be developed into a report by QCOSS and submitted to the Queensland Government and Ergon Energy. ICAN is hoping for some really positive outcomes for Queensland’s remote Indigenous communities. ICAN CEO, Aaron Davis said, “We’d like to publicly thank QCOSS for the opportunity to provide a voice for Indigenous consumers in the energy sector.”
Lead Researcher, Eddie Buli said, “The people interviewed on Palm Island provided some great information about the use of power cards in their community.” ICAN prides itself in the delivery of culturally competent research and looks to expand these services in the coming year.
