Climate Saver Rates Comparison

For households in the Powercor network in Victoria, a special tariff generally used for heating and cooling appliances was made available called Climate Saver. Climate Saver features a Summer (November to March) rate and Winter (April to October) rate. The lower winter rate provides a lower cost option (compared to standard anytime usage rates) for heating, however the summer rates are generally higher than standard anytime rates so the tariff is better suited for those with higher winter heating versus summer cooling needs. Powercor have now closed the Climate Saver tariff to new entrants and it is only available if you are currently receiving it. The table below compares the rates charged by retailers for those households who are still on this tariff. You can check a recent electricity bill if you are not sure whether you are on this tariff.
