Changes in the Price of Electricity in Australia
When it comes to how much you pay for electricity, much of it will depend upon where you live in Australia. The sad fact is that prices across the country have been increasing over the past decade.
In 2012, average electricity prices were slated to increase as much as 37% throughout all states. Much of this had to do with the increased overhead needed to regulate the poles and wires throughout the nation, especially due to repairs being required to ensure reliable distribution and transmission of electricity in each state.
On top of that, the introduction of the Federal Carbon Tax saw an increase in household electricity prices by up to 8%. When that cost was added to other expenses like higher wholesale electricity prices, the cost for renewable energy programs implemented by the government, and the charge for greenhouse gas restraining measures, households were warned they would see an average energy bill increase from $300 to almost $1900 per year for the 2013/14 period.
Jump forward to where we are today, and you’ll surely have noticed that while costs are still increasing, the rate at which electricity prices are increasing has slowed. In some states, the average price of a household’s yearly electricity bill has even decreased.
In December, the Australian Energy Market Commission published its 2018 Electricity Price Trends Report with the following representative average prices per state for the median yearly household electricity bill including GST.
In general, the AEMC derives typical average prices from 2 person households. Access to mains gas and off-peak water varies by state. In some cases, yearly totals reflect partial use of off-peak or controlled load tariffs. Personal factors should be taken into account when looking at these numbers, such as the number of people living in your household, individual household usage habits, the actual electricity rate you’re on, any government concessions, and the use of solar or other energy-saving initiatives.
While some states are restricted to standing offers, the majority of households in deregulated areas are hopefully taking advantage of the competitive electricity market, and have already shopped around to find the cheapest electricity available in their region of Australia.
