Electricity Market Competition in NSW

Australia's electricity market has been gradually deregulating since the late 1990s. The first step of deregulation was the establishing of a national electricity network {{citymarketintro4}} in one state to be delivered to a different state.

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

  • Energy Distributors
    Distributors manage the physical delivery of electricity to the customers' premises. 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 one and three distributors, and up to 30 retailers.

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

Electricity in NSW is provided by the following distributors

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

Tips for reducing your energy usage to save on your bills

Here are a few easily implemented ways for reducing how much you spend on energy

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

FAQ about switching energy providers

This section contains frequently asked questions and answers about what happens once you've finished the comparison process and you have made the decision that you'd like to change energy providers.

It's okay if you change your mind because your new energy provider will allow 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 energy to your premises when you change over to another energy retailer. It's the retailer that issues your energy bills, however, they purchase energy from the distributor and resell it to you. You can't purchase energy directly from your distributor, you need to buy it from one of the retailers that resells their energy. You can be sure that your energy supply will not be interrupted when you switch retailers, because the underlying connection to the distributor will continue to be the same as before.
All the 'paperwork' is processed quite quickly, often in less than 24 hours. But the actual switchover won't happen until after your old provider has sent your final bill, and that can't happen until a final meter reading has been taken. Therefore, it depends on how long until your meter is next due to be read. It could take as long as three months.
We'll sign you up with your new energy provider, and we'll also tell the current provider that you're changing providers. The transfer to your new provider won't happen straight away, though, because the current provider will have to do one final meter reading. then issue you their final bill. The new provider only starts charging you from the date that the meter is read. the distributor who feeds the energy to your house will continue to be the same as before the switch.
No. Our comparison and switching service is free to you. Instead, we will receive a commission from the new energy 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).
