Electricity regulations for NSW, QLD, SA and VIC households
Changes to discounts
- In NSW, parts of QLD and SA, all plans must show you an estimated yearly bill amount. This estimate is calculated for an average-usage customer in your area
- In Victoria, all plans must show you an annual yearly saving against the VDO, either as a dollar amount or a discount. This yearly saving is for a typical-usage customer in your area
- If discounts appear smaller than they once were in some areas, it might be because the base price has also dropped
- From 1 July 2019, some discounts may apply to supply charges as well as to usage charges
You can use the estimated yearly bills or annual cost savings to quickly scan and compare available offers. Of course, your actual bill will depend on your usage.
