Electricity Market Competition in Qld

Australia's electricity market has been undergoing a gradual deregulation process since the late 1990s. The first step of deregulation involved establishing a national grid {{citymarketintro4}} in one state to be delivered in another state.

Another stage, which happened sooner in some states than others, was the breaking up of state owned electricity monopolies into multiple competing entities, then privatising them. In an attempt to stimulate greater competition the market was divided into two levels

  • Energy Distributors
    The distributors have the responsibility for the physical delivery of electricity to the customers' premises , and they own and maintain the poles and powerlines, but do not deal directly with customers.
  • Energy Retailers Retailers sell the electricity to the customers and are responsible for billing. States have between 1 and 3 distributors but up to thirty retailers.

On 1 July 2016 , the electricity market in South East Queensland was completely deregulated. This enabled customers to switch to whichever provider had cheaper electricity prices.

Two electricity distributors supply all of Queensland

  • Energex
    The Energex network supplies electricity to an area covering around 25,000 square kilometres in South East Queensland, which stretches from the NSW border in the south to Gympie in the north. This includes Brisbane, Logan, the Gold and Sunshine Coasts, Ipswich, Redlands and Moreton Bay.
  • Ergon Energy
    Ergon Energy distributes electricity to Queensland including coastal and rural areas and also remote communities in outback Queensland and the Torres Strait.

Reduce your power bills with these electricity -saving tips

Here is a list of easy to implement tips to reduce how much you spend on electricity

  • Minimise draughts. Stop hot or cold air blowing in or leaving through the gaps under doors or around windows by using gap seal tape and door snakes.
  • Instead of turning on the heater, wear clothing that is appropriate for the weather (booties, jumper, beanie, warm socks).
  • Turn off all your appliances at the power socket when they're not in use.
  • Minimise use of the clothes dryer. Hang the clothes to dry outside or alternatively, use an indoor clothing rack.
  • A cheap alternative to an electric blanket is a hot water bottle.
  • Close the doors of rooms that you don't use, so that you just cool or heat a smaller area.
  • Stop the hot sun from over-heating rooms by closing the blinds and curtains in rooms where the sun shines in.
  • Reduce air conditioning use by opening the windows at night to let the house cool down, then closing them in the morning to keep the hot air out.
  • Reduce your use of lights. Rely on natural light if possible, and replace old lights with LED lights.

FAQ about switching electricity and gas providers

This section contains frequently asked questions and answers about what happens after you have finished the comparison process and you have made the choice to switch electricity and gas providers.

It's okay if you change your mind because your new electricity and gas provider must give you a ten-day 'cooling-off' period, that means you have ten days to cancel the process and stay with your old energy provider.
No. You won't need to do anything like that. The actual delivery of energy to your premises, via the pipes and wires, is all done by an energy distributer (not by your retailer). The distributor will continue to supply electricity and gas to your premises even after you switch to another energy retailer. It's the retailer that issues your electricity and gas bills, however, they purchase energy from the distributor and resell it to you. You can't purchase electricity and gas directly from your distributor, you must to buy it from one of the retailers that resells the distributor's energy. You can be sure that when you switch retailers, your electricity and gas supply won't be interrupted because the underlying connection to the distributor will continue to be the same as before.
All the 'paperwork' is processed quite quickly, often in under 24 hours. But the actual switchover cannot go ahead until your old provider has issued your final bill, and that can't be done until a final meter reading has been taken. Therefore, it depends on when your next meter reading takes place. It could take up to three months.
We'll sign you up with your new energy provider, and we will tell your current provider that you are leaving them. The changeover to your new provider won't happen straight away, because the old provider will have to read your meter one final time. then send you their final bill. Your new provider starts charging you from the date of the meter reading. the energy distributor who feeds the energy to your premises will continue to be the same as before the switch.
No. Our comparison and switching service is free to you. Instead, we will be paid a commission by your new electricity and gas provider.While our service is provided to you without charge, you may be subject to charges in relation to your current service, including exit fees. You should check this with your current supplier(s).
