About Queensland

Electricity Suppliers

Brisbane is a uniquely sub-tropical Australian city where indoor/outdoor activities continue day and night. This glitzy metropolis is powered by deregulated electricity providers who strive for advantages over the competition, and energy consumers are the big winners.

Prices fluctuate often, and GoSwitch recommends you check back annually to make sure you are getting the best possible energy deal. The powerful GoSwitch energy comparison tool delivers the latest deals in real-time, so you can switch to a better electricity contract without delay, in three simple steps.

  1. Make an energy usage profile for your household. This should include peak and off-peak electricity usage plus your overall billing cycle energy usage.
  2. GoSwitch compares deals in your area. We investigate all savings opportunities to get the results you are looking for.
  3. If you decide to accept a better electricity offer, your GoSwitch energy consultant can help you set up the account for a smooth transition.

About the energy market in Brisbane

Deregulation of electricity supply has opened up new opportunities in Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia, Tasmania, and the ACT. Independent electricity retailers in Brisbane purchase energy from regional electricity providers, then on-sell the electricity to consumers.

Brisbane electricity retailers are responsible for your connection to the grid, management of your electricity bills, and the kW/h electricity price you pay for your home or business. GoSwitch is in the business of getting better energy deals for customers in Brisbane, South-East Queensland and other Australian states and territories.

Energy costs – What to look out for

Energy usage costs (tariffs) are a combination of fixed daily supply charges and variable usage charges. Some of these charges can be adapted to suit your home and lifestyle. Options include:

  • Single rate tariffs where the kW/h rate remains the same 24/7.
  • Time of use tariffs (peak, shoulder, off-peak).
  • Controlled load tariffs for stand-alone appliances such as hot water cylinders.

In addition, electricity retailers offer new customers special introductory deals with usage rates well below the reference price.

  • Sell energy back to the grid (feed-in tariffs)
  • Use or sell solar energy, with zero waste
  • Become less reliant on major electricity network infrastructure

Electricity Usage

Electricity usage is measured in kW/h (kilowatts per hour). There are two main factors that determine associated costs:

Electricity Usage: The amount of energy used by a property is dependent on factors such as the type of appliances you use, the energy efficiency of the appliances, how often the appliances are used.

Electricity Prices: The kW/h price you pay for power is the other major factor influencing energy costs. A good deal on electricity kW/h will naturally result in your household getting a better energy deal.

The power is in your hands to find a better deal with GoSwitch.

Plan information

If you are looking for a better Qld electricity deal, it’s worth comparing new energy plans with your current plan. Your recent electricity bill will provide information such as:

Pricing: This can include promotional discount rates, direct debit savings, peak period and off-peak rates, and much more.

Fees & Charges: These include early exit fees, credit card payment fees, and other one-off or ongoing fees.

Contract type: Incentives may include a fixed-price promotion rate, zero exit fees and other money-saver features.

Payment method: Choose a bill payment method that suits your style, including bill frequency, bill smoothing, and the choice of electronic or paper bills.
