"We believe we can drive electricity prices even lower for Australian households and businesses, if we can agree on a long term energy policy to encourage timely investment in new supply to replace the nation's aging power stations.

"We encourage the industry and governments at all levels to stay the course and continue to progress the National Energy Guarantee," Mr Briskin said.

"I'm confident we can get the support of the states, and of course the support of my colleagues to legislate this important reform," Minister Frydenberg said.

When asked on Sky News if he hoped other companies followed suit on price cuts, Minister Frydenberg said, "absolutely."
