Electricity prices 2014-15
The QCA sets regulated electricity prices in Queensland.
We have released our final decision on regulated electricity prices to apply from 1 July 2014.
Most residential customers in south east Queensland have switched to market contracts which are often cheaper than regulated tariffs. Many large businesses are also paying market rates.
However regulated prices are still important as they effectively set maximum prices for most customers.

Changing your tariff
Customers in south east Queensland are encouraged to shop around for a better deal. Our independent price comparator can help compare electricity prices offered by retailers.
Unfortunately, retailers do not generally make offers to residential customers in regional Queensland because regulated prices are subsidised.
The Queensland Government is looking at ways to introduce competition in regional areas, so this may change in future.

If you are struggling to pay your electricity bill, you should discuss your situation with your retailer. Retailers offer support to their customers in hardship.
