Price changes from 1 July 2024

What’s changing?

Each year our electricity prices are regulated and set by the Queensland Competition Authority (QCA). A number of factors impact the prices which are set and we are required by the Electricity Act to charge these notified prices.

The Queensland Government subsidises the price of electricity for regional Queenslanders to ensure we are on par with other parts of the state, given the vast geographic distances to deliver electricity across regional and remote Queensland.

This year, we have seen an increase in the prices handed down by the QCA due mainly to increased network and metering costs, but a decrease in the usage rates for Tariffs 20, 24A, 24B, 31, 33 and the peak usage rates for Tariffs 22B and 22C, due to a reduction in wholesale electricity costs.

From 1 July 2024:

  • The bill for a typical small business on Tariff 20 has been decreased by 1.1% or around $27 a year
  • Typical large customers on Tariff 44, Tariff 45 or Tariff 46 are expected to pay around 1.7% - 3.8% more for electricity in 2024-25.

We’re committed to being 100% transparent with you for one very strong reason, we’re Queensland owned. It’s your energy.
