|Prices and Bills
Electricity customers face a range of prices depending on their consumption pattern and location. Meaningful comparisons of interstate prices require consideration of the many factors that characterise each market. The tariffs in each State and Territory reflect local cost structures, the state of the energy market (particularly the availability of natural gas) and differing weights placed on the fixed (daily charges) and variable (consumption-related) charges.
For more detail on the range of prices experienced by Australian energy customers at various consumption levels, please refer to the Regulator's Standard Tariff Price Comparison Reports.
