The Queensland Competition Authority (QCA) released their final determination on 2020-2021 regulated retail electricity prices for regional Queensland in June which included a general reduction on electricity tariffs for regional Queensland, except transitional and obsolete tariffs – which remains unchanged.
However, there was good news for regional households who will see typical bills fall by 5.9 per cent, and small businesses by 3.2 per cent.
While the Solar Feed in tariff in regional Queensland has been increased by 0.019 cents per kilowatt hour (c/kWh) to 7.861.
However, finding the time during busy periods and the complexity of tariff information can make managing your energy costs difficult.
Energy Made Easy has developed a tool to help your business make decisions based on your site’s historic energy use. The tool assists your business by comparing your current energy plan and tariffs against others to show potential dollar savings.
You begin by entering your postcode and the type of supply connected to your site. After selecting the relevant occupants, or small business tab you will be prompted to select one of three different options.
Begin by selecting your current energy provider and using the various options to enter your billing data. Whereupon you are prompted to select some important energy options relevant to your site. The results shown will help inform you of potential savings by moving providers or tariffs.
You can access the tool HERE.
