Huge Discounts on Electricity Available in Queensland
In Queensland, homeowners can now choose from several leading electricity retailers to save money on their quarterly electricity bills. While South East Queensland was among the last regions to offer highly competitive rates through deregulation, customers across the state now have a wide choice of electricity retailers. Thanks to this freedom, you can compare electricity prices from suppliers in regional Queensland, Brisbane, and the South East to get the best deal on your electricity. Electricity Wizard can help you compare rates and will save you money on your energy bills.
South East Queensland was the only region in Australia to show a reduction in the average yearly electricity bill from July 2017 to January 2018 with a modest saving of $70. Still, only 54% of residences have taken up a discounted electricity rate. 46% of homes in South East Queensland remain on their expensive standing offer.
The AEMC reports that average residential users would save over $500 a year on their bill by swapping from their standing offer to the cheapest market offer in their region. There’s no reason to pay more than you have to for your electricity. Contact Electricity Wizard and find out how much you can save! The best way to keep energy bills down long-term are to ensure a competitive electricity and gas market. It’s time homes right across regional Queensland and the South East coast all made the switch to the cheapest electricity rates on offer.

Helpful Tips to Choose the Right Electricity Retailer
Comparing electricity prices in Queensland to get cheaper rates is simple, but how do you know that you are choosing the right electricity retailer to get the best deal?
According to the Queensland Government, it’s helpful to consider the following tips when choosing an electricity retailer with lower rates:
- Always compare apples with apples. Make sure that you fully understand the cents per kilowatt hour price you are being charged by your current electricity retailer so that it can be compared to any potential electricity retailer to find cheaper rates.
- Inquire about hidden service fees. Unfortunately, many electricity retailers may not tell you up front about service fees that you will have to pay for starting, switching, transferring, or cancelling a service. If you are evaluating the rates of an electricity retailer in Queensland, make sure that you compare charges for a specific billing cycle that matches the current billing cycle on your energy bill.
- Ask about extra savings. In most cases, all you have to do is ask! Take a moment to ask a prospective electricity retailer about special bonuses or savings that they may have available, which could save you hundreds of dollars per year on your energy bills.
- Find out if a security deposit is required. Many homeowners overlook the fact that some electricity retailers in Queensland may require a security deposit right off the bat. You will have to factor in this security deposit to add to your total energy costs for the year to determine if switching retailers is really the best deal.
Finally, make sure to communicate with any new electricity retailer to find out how they will end your contract period. For the majority of large business electricity customers in Queensland, an electricity retailer must offer a subsequent electricity market contract at a reasonable price. Homeowners in Queensland with small electricity bills can choose to accept a market offer from any electricity retailer or return to government-set electricity rates using a standard retail contract through an electricity retailer.
