THE LNP is pledging to put the brakes on the spiralling cost of living by announcing a plan to freeze increases to the household electrical Tariff 11 should it win government.

The announcement came from Shadow Minister for Energy and Water Utilities Steve Dickson, who was in Bundaberg today to deliver the new policy.

"People are doing it so tough these days, particularly families in Burnett and Bundaberg," he said.

Tariff 11 is the electricity tariff for general domestic use for all light and power used in homes.

The price increase freeze on the tariff is expected to save families about $120 a year.
