Electricity Market Competition in Qld

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

The next step, which occurred sooner in some states than others, was the dividing up of state owned monopolies into competing entities and then privatising them. In an attempt to create more competition the market was divided into two types of entities

  • Energy Distributors
    The distributors manage the delivery of electricity to customers' premises . They own and maintain the powerlines and poles, and don't engage directly with customers.
  • Energy Retailers The retailers sell the electricity to the customers and manage the billing. Each state has between one and three distributors, and up to 30 retailers.

South East Queensland 's energy market was completely deregulated on 1 July 2016 . This meant that, for the first time, customers could change to whichever provider had the cheapest electricity prices.

There are two distributors who supply electricity to Queensland

  • Energex
    The Energex network distributes electricity to premises in a region covering about 25,000 square kilometres in South East Queensland, which stretches from the NSW border to Gympie in the north. Including the major population areas of Brisbane, Logan, Ipswich, the Gold and Sunshine Coasts, Redlands and Moreton Bay.
  • Ergon Energy
    Ergon Energy distributes electricity to coastal and rural areas of Queensland and the remote communities in outback Queensland and the Torres Strait.

Tips to reduce your energy consumption to save on your bills

Here is a list of easy to implement ways for reducing your usage of energy

  • Turn off your appliances at the power point when they're not in use.
  • Reduce draughts. Minimise cold air or hot air getting in or out through the gaps under doors or around your windows by using door snakes and gap seal tape.
  • A cheap alternative to an electric blanket is a hot water bottle.
  • Put on warmer clothing, instead of turning on the heater (beanie, warm socks, booties, jumper).
  • Don't use your clothes dryer as often. Instead, hang your clothes to dry outside or alternatively, use an indoor clothing rack.
  • Use less air conditioning by opening your windows in the evening allow the cool air in, then closing them each morning thus keeping the hot air out.
  • Use less lighting through the use of as much natural light as possible and replace older lighting with LED lights.
  • Stop the sun from over-heating your house by closing blinds and curtains in the rooms that are exposed to the heat of direct sunlight.
  • Close doors of rooms that aren't in use, so you only have to heat or cool a smaller space.

FAQ about switching energy providers

Here are some answers to frequently asked questions about what happens once you've finished the comparison process and you have made the decision you want to switch energy providers.

If you change your mind, that's okay, your new energy provider provides 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.
Absolutely not! The actual delivery of energy to your house, via the pipes and wires, is done by your energy distributer (not by your energy retailer). That distributor continues to supply energy to your house even after you change over to another energy retailer. It's the retailer that issues your energy bills, but they purchase energy from the distributor and resell it to you. You can't buy energy directly from a distributor, you need to buy it from one of the retailers that resells their energy. You can be confident that when you switch retailers, your energy supply will not be interrupted because the connection to the distributor will continue to be the same as before.
The 'paperwork' is processed very quickly, often in less than 24 hours. But the final switchover will not go ahead until after your present provider has issued you your final bill, and that can't be done until a final meter reading has been taken. Therefore, it depends on how soon your next meter reading is. It could take as long as three months.
We will sign you up with the new energy provider, and we'll inform the current provider that you're leaving them. The actual move over to the new provider won't happen immediately, though, because the current provider needs to do one final meter reading. then issue you their final bill. The new provider starts charging you from the date that the meter is read. the distributor that feeds the energy to your house will continue to be the same one as before the switch.
No. Our comparison and switching service is free to you. Instead, we will receive a commission from your 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).
