    Electricity Usage – peak and off-peak pricing structure

    Electricity charges (tariffs) are usually a combination of fixed daily supply charges and variable usage charges. Daily supply charges are the cost of delivering electricity to your region by distributors such as Energex. Usage charges are the retailer tariffs for the electricity you use. Here are some peak and off-peak tariffs and savings opportunities.

    Single rate electricity tariffs – With a single rate tariff, the kW/h rate remains the same regardless of the time of day.

    Time of use electricity tariffs – Variable kW/h rates adjust at different times of the day. These include peak hour rates, shoulder rates, and off-peak rates.

    Controlled load tariffs – These rates apply to separately metered stand-alone appliances.

    In addition, electricity retailers in Noosa, Maroochydore, and other South-East Queensland regions offer contract discount incentives.

    Conditional discounts – These discounts apply when conditions are met, such as on-time bill payment.

    Guaranteed discounts – These discounts apply for part or all of the entire contract term, without additional conditions.

    Choosing the right energy provider and electricity plan can result in significantly cheaper electricity bills. Take advantage of the GoSwitch comparison service and start saving with a better plan today.
