Electricity deregulation in Victoria
Both residential and small-medium business energy users can take advantage of competition and price deregulation in the Victorian energy market.
This means retailers are free to set their own tariff pricing and since 2002 private energy companies have been free to enter the market. From 2009 the Victorian state government introduced full deregulation of retail prices, allowing retailers to set their own rates for both standing and market offer contracts.
34% of Victorian small businesses report being 'very' or 'somewhat dissatisfied' with their current electricity provider.
According to a report of small business energy users commissioned by the AEMC, 41% of Victorian businesses said they were 'very satisfied' with their current electricity provider, 18% reported being 'somewhat satisfied', 25% said they were neither satisfied nor dissatisfied, 9% 'somewhat dissatisfied' and 7% were 'very dissatisfied'.
Finding the cheapest electricity company in Victoria
While all retailers publish rates for different plans on their energy price fact sheets, identifying the cheapest provider can be a complex and time consuming process. This is due to different discount types applied to usage rates (guaranteed and conditional), differences in supply charges and different rates for time of use plans.
Make It Cheaper's free comparison service takes the hard work out of searching for a better deal - we compare your existing plan against our panel of retailers and can switch you over without you needing to deal with your existing or new retailer.
Our innovative DiFY (Do it For You) product will also automatically send you our recommended offers to save you money just before you are due to renew, and switch you without another phone call. Learn more about DiFY.
