Electricity Market Deregulation and Competition in NSW

Australia's electricity market has been gradually deregulating which began in the late 1990s. The first step of deregulation was to establish a national electricity network {{citymarketintro4}} in one state to be delivered in other states.

Another stage, which occurred sooner in some states, was the breaking up of state owned electricity monopolies into several competing entities and then privatising them. In an attempt to stimulate more competition the market was split into two types of entities

  • Energy Distributors
    Distributors manage the physical delivery of electricity to the customers' premises, and they own and maintain the poles and powerlines, and don't engage directly with customers.
  • Energy Retailers Retailers have all the interactions with the customer. They sell the electricity and manage the billing.States have between 1 and 3 distributors and up to 30 retailers.

On 1 July 2014 , NSW 's energy market was completely deregulated. This meant that customers could now change to another provider who had cheaper prices.

Electricity in NSW is supplied by three distributors

  • Ausgrid
    Ausgrid supplies energy throughout inner, northern and eastern metropolitan Sydney and in the Hunter region and Newcastle.
  • Essential Energy
    Essential Energy supplies electricity regional and country NSW, and also throughout southern regional QLD.
  • Endeavour Energy
    Endeavour Energy provides 2.4 million people with electricity in homes and businesses located in Sydney's Greater West, the Blue Mountains, and Southern Highlands.

Tips for using less electricity and lower your bills

Here are some easy to implement ways for reducing how much electricity you use

  • Eliminate draughts. Minimise cold air or hot air blowing in or leaving via gaps under doors or around your windows by using gap seal tape and door snakes.
  • A cheap alternative to an electric blanket is a hot water bottle.
  • Use the clothes dryer less often. Dry clothes outside or instead, use an indoor clothing rack.
  • Wear warmer clothing, instead of turning on the heater (beanie, booties, jumper, warm socks).
  • Turn your appliances off at the power socket when they're not in use.
  • Close doors to rooms that aren't in use, so you only have to heat or cool a smaller area.
  • Reduce your use of lights by making use of the available natural light. Turn the lights off when you leave the room.
  • Stop the sun over-heating rooms by closing the blinds and curtains in rooms that the hot sun shines directly into.
  • Minimise air conditioning use by opening the windows in the evening allow the cooler air in, and closing them each morning thus keeping the hot air out.

FAQ about switching electricity providers

Here are some answers to questions about what happens after you have completed the comparison process and you have made the decision that you'd like to change electricity providers.

If you change your mind it's okay, your new electricity provider allows you ten days of 'cooling-off' period, that means you have ten days during which you can cancel the process and remain with your current energy provider.
No. You won't have to do that. The actual delivery of energy to your premises, via the pipes and wires, is done by your energy distributer (not by your energy retailer). That distributor continues to supply electricity to your premises even if you change over to another energy retailer. The retailer issues your electricity bills, but they purchase the energy from the distributor and resell it to you. You can't buy electricity directly from the distributor, you must go through an energy retailer. You can be sure that your electricity supply will not be interrupted when you switch retailers, because the connection to the distributor continues to be the same.
The 'paperwork' is all processed very quickly, usually within 24 hours. However, the actual switchover will not take place until after your old provider has sent your final bill, and that can't happen until a final meter reading has been taken. So, it depends on when your next meter reading takes place. It could take as long as three months.
Compare and Connect will sign you up with the new energy provider, and we'll also tell the current provider that you're switching away from them. The transfer to your new provider won't happen straight away, because the current provider will have to do one final meter reading. and then issue you a final bill. The new provider will start charging you from the date that the meter is read. the energy distributor who feeds the energy to your house continues to be the same as before the switch.
No. Our service is free to you. Instead, we will receive a commission from the new electricity 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).
