Another stage, which happened earlier in some states, was the breaking up of the state owned electricity monopolies into several competing entities, then privatising them. In order to stimulate a greater degree of competition the energy market was split into two types of entities
Distributors look after the physical delivery of electricity to the customers' premises . They own and manage the poles and powerlines, but do not deal directly with customers.
Retailers do all the interacting with the customer. They sell the electricity and are responsible for billing. The states have between one and three distributors but up to thirty retailers.
The market in Melbourne was completely deregulated in July 2008 . This meant that consumers could now switch to another provider who had cheaper electricity prices.

Tips to lower your electricity consumption to save on your bills
Here are a few easy to implement ways to reduce your expenditure on electricity
- Avoid use of your clothes dryer. Dry your clothes outside or alternatively, use an indoor clothing rack.
- Turn appliances off at the power socket when they're not in use.
- Rather than turn on the heater, dress for the weather (jumper, beanie, booties, warm socks).
- Minimise draughts. Prevent hot or cold air blowing in or leaving through gaps under doors or around your windows through the use of door snakes and gap seal tape.
- A cheap alternative to an electric blanket is a hot water bottle.
- Close doors to areas of your home that you don't use, so that you only have to cool or heat a smaller area.
- Minimise the use of air conditioning by opening windows in the evening let the cool air in, and shutting them each morning to keep the hot air out.
- Prevent the hot sun over-heating rooms by closing the curtains and blinds in the rooms where the sun shines in.
- Reduce the use of lights. Use natural light more often.
