If you’re an electricity customer living in the Goondiwindi region, your electricity is supplied from the Essential Energy network, which is part of the New South Wales (NSW) electricity distribution network. You are currently billed based on Origin’s NSW standing offer time-of-use prices but receive a Queensland Government subsidy so that you don’t pay more for electricity than any other Queensland customer. The subsidy is shown on your bill as a Queensland Government Rebate.
From 1 July 2019, you’ll be billed based on Queensland’s notified prices, and Queensland pricing will be displayed on your bill. The Queensland Government subsidy is included in these prices, so you’ll no longer see this Queensland Government Rebate on your bill.
