Heater ban reversed
Mulgoa MP Tanya Davies has welcomed the state government's decision to overturn the previous government's ban on electric hot water heaters.
Late last year, energy minister Chris Hartcher announced the reversal of a decision to phase-out electric hot water systems, meaning households will no longer be forced to buy expensive new systems.
"More than 7700 customers in our area do not have the option of gas hot water from a reticulated system, making this announcement a very significant one for many households struggling with rising costs," Ms Davies said.
"Approximately two thirds of households in NSW do not have the option of gas hot water from a reticulated system, meaning consumers without gas options would be forced to invest thousands of dollars on alternatives including heat pumps or solar heating."

Shave for blood cancers
The Leukaemia Foundation is calling on Australians to "be brave and shave" for this year's World's Greatest Shave, to raise $18 million for blood cancer research and support.
Thousands will shave or colour their hair to raise funds on March 14-17 for people with leukaemia, lymphoma, myeloma and related blood disorders.
Money raised will support these people and their families.
Blood cancer is Australia's biggest cancer killer after lung cancer, claiming a life every two hours.
