Residential Controlled Load 1 Rates Comparison

Controlled Load Hot Water System
Looking to compare Controlled Load 1 rates? Listed below are electricity retailer’s controlled load 1 rates for households in ACT, NSW, QLD, SA, TAS and VIC.

Controlled Load 1 Rates are the amount you pay per kWh for appliances that are on dedicated circuits connected to your electricity meter. Rates are typically cheaper because connected appliances operate during off-peak hours (usually overnight). Controlled load is primarily used for “off-peak” electric hot water systems. Some bills may refer to this as a ‘dedicated circuit’ and in Queensland it can be called ‘Tariff 31’.

Controlled Load 1 Rates vary depending on;
1. The electricity network region you are connected to. There are 15 major electricity networks in Australia.
2. The electricity retailer who you buy power through.
Here’s how to find the best deal. A low controlled load 1 rate is important, but you also need to consider the other usage rates, daily supply charges (and feed-in tariffs if you have solar). WATTever’s comprehensive electricity comparison makes it easy to get it right because it includes all this information.
