What is the average electricity bill

The average yearly electricity bill for customers in South-East Queensland is close to $1,350, making saving money on energy bills a priority for customers in Brisbane, the Gold Coast and the Sunshine Coast. Fortunately, there are a lot of ways GoSwitch can help you trim your annual power bills by getting a deal that suits your household and lifestyle.

Energy market prices are kept in check by the Australian Energy Regulator (AER), and retailers compete strongly to offer deals well below the market offer. GoSwitch locates highly-regarded retailers that deliver consistently good energy deals for Queenslanders, with electricity rates well below the average, potentially saving you hundreds of dollars annually.

Avoiding the increase in electricity prices

There are many ways to avoid the increase in electricity prices. For starters, there are lots of well-known home-living tips for saving electricity, such as using electricity at off-peak times, and washing clothes in cold water when possible. Additional considerations include:

Going Solar: Solar power systems have been improving for decades, and today’s long-lasting solar systems put the power in your hands for energy efficiency. You can use solar power for your home and receive solar electricity feed-in tariffs for selling energy back to the grid – the best of both worlds.

Smart Meters: Many South-East Queensland homes have smart meters installed. These devices monitor your electricity usage in real-time, without the need for a meter reader to visit. You can self-monitor your home electricity use and adjust usage times to save on electricity costs.

Understanding your bill: Electricity bills contain important information about your plan, such as usage charges, supply charges, rebates, kW/h (kilowatts per hour) pricing, special features, contact details, and more. Compare your current contract with new deals using the powerful GoSwitch energy price comparison search engine.
