She gave the insight during a Hot Topics segment with Perth Lord Mayor Basil Zempilas and Herald Sun columnist Susie O’Brien while discussing rising power prices.
“We are set to face even more power price pain into next year after the cost of generating electricity jumped a staggering 31 per cent in the three months to June,” Nat said.
“That is despite this government putting price caps on coal and gas and strengthening global supply chains as energy prices soar and more households struggle to pay the bills.”

Nat then revealed how she took matters into her own hands while making dinner the night before.
“You know what I did yesterday? I went on to iSelect, I think it was called, I rang them,” she said.
“I spent half an hour on the phone, I saved $400 myself over the year and changed electricity providers.
“Everyone can do that. I was actually surprised at how much I saved.
“I spoke to this really lovely lady, she went right through my bill.
“I had to supply my bills, stuff, gas and electricity — this was just on the electricity.
“I reckon half an hour on the phone, but I had her on speaker.

“I was chopping up my onions as I did it and, you know, answering all the questions, but $400 over a year, that’s a lot of money.
“That’s a huge saving.”
Basil noted that people often think it’s too much hard work to change providers.
“Most people are too busy to be able to change banks, change providers, change anything,” he said.
“But you’ve demonstrated it can be done and you’re catching up for dinner with that lady next week!”
Nat said: “Exactly! She was very friendly.”
