Electricity Market Competition in NSW

Australia's electricity market has been gradually deregulating since the late 1990s. The first stage of deregulation involved establishing a national grid {{citymarketintro4}} in one state to be sold in another state.

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

  • Energy Distributors
    Distributors manage the physical delivery of electricity to the customers' premises, and they own and manage the poles and powerlines, but do not deal directly with customers.
  • Energy Retailers Retailers have all the interactions with the customer. They sell the electricity and manage the billing.The states have between 1 and 3 distributors but up to thirty retailers.

On 1 July 2014 , NSW 's energy market was completely deregulated. This enabled consumers to switch to another provider who had cheaper prices.

Electricity in NSW is supplied by the following distributors

  • Ausgrid
    Ausgrid supplies energy throughout northern, eastern and inner metropolitan Sydney and north to Newcastle and the Hunter region.
  • 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 across the Blue Mountains, Sydney's Greater West and the Southern Highlands.

Lower your power bills with these energy -saving tips

Here are some easily implemented tips to reduce household expenditure on energy

  • A cheap alternative to an electric blanket is a hot water bottle.
  • Minimise usage of the clothes dryer. Dry clothes outside or instead, use an indoor clothing rack.
  • Instead of turning on the heater, wear clothing that's appropriate for cold weather (beanie, booties, jumper, warm socks).
  • Turn your appliances off at the power socket when they're not in use.
  • Eliminate draughts. Minimise cold air or hot air blowing in or leaving via gaps under doors and around windows through the use of door snakes and gap seal tape.
  • Close doors of rooms that you don't use, so you only have to heat or cool a smaller area.
  • Reduce the use of lights. Rely on natural light if possible.
  • Stop the sun over-heating rooms by closing the curtains and blinds in rooms where the sun shines in.
  • Reduce air conditioning use by opening the windows in the evening allow the cooler air in, then shutting them in the morning to keep hot air out.

FAQ about switching energy providers

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

It's okay to change your mind because your new energy provider must give you a ten-day '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 delivery of actual energy to your premises, via the pipes and wires, is all done by an energy distributer (not by your retailer). That distributor continues to supply energy to your premises if you switch to a different 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 a distributor, you must to buy it from one of the retailers that resells the distributor's 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.
The 'paperwork' is processed quite quickly, often in under 24 hours. But the actual switchover can't take place until 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 soon your meter is next due to be read. It could take up to three months.
We will sign you up with your new energy provider, and we'll also tell your current provider that you're leaving them. The transfer to your new provider will not happen straight away, because the old provider will have to do one final meter reading. then send you their final bill. Your new provider begins charging you from the date of the meter reading. the energy distributor who supplies the energy to your premises 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).
