^ Rates shown include GST and all available discounts. Plans are updated weekly from the Basic Plan Information Documents (BPIDs) listed on retailer websites.
* Reference Price discount refers to the discount off the Default Market Offer (DMO) price for a household on a flat/anytime rate without controlled load tariff. Discount is calculated based on annual usage of 3,900kWh in the NSW-Ausgrid network. The reference price discount is a guide (provided by the AER and ESC) and does not take into account solar export nor a property’s actual annual usage or when that usage occurs (for time of use plans).
“Market-linked plans” that have their rates tied directly to the wholesale market spot price are not included in the tables above because these rates vary every day and cannot be compared like-for-like with most plans where the published rate is the rate you pay. To view indicative rates and feed-in tariffs published for market-linked plans, please see WATTever’s rates pages for Amber Electric and Powerclub.
