Image for The Mercury ... and energy

The Mercury - which bills itself as the Voice of Tasmania - seems to have left its tongue somewhere in NSW or Queensland …

An article on page 19 of Monday’s Mercury, comparing energy plans of different providers, seemed to be strangely ignorant of the fact that Tasmania’s market is a state-owned monopoly with one energy electricity retailer ... Aurora.

The Hobart Mercury seemed ignorant of this fact - which is well-known to everyone with electricity in Tasmania.

It’s good to know the Mercury is there for its community … even though it’s in Townsville ... or Timbuktoo.
