Listed below are electricity retailer’s controlled load 2 rates for households in the ACT, NSW, QLD and TAS. There are no controlled load 2 tariffs in the other states and territories.
Controlled Load 2 Rates are the amount you pay per kWh for appliances that are on dedicated circuits connected as a Controlled 2 Load. For residential properties this can include pool pumps, in-floor heating and occasionally hot water heating (if longer heating hours are required than controlled load 1 provides).
Controlled Load 2 Rates vary depending on;
1. The electricity network region you are connected to.
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.

For a long time, South Australians have paid the highest electricity rates in Australia, with ‘one-size-fits-all’ flat/anytime tariffs costing 30-40 cents per kWh. Now, South Australians can dramatically reduce their electricity bills just by switching to a new tariff type.
NSW energy bill relief is on the way. The New South Wales state government has just upped relief grants to their emergency support Energy Accounts Payment Assistance (EAPA) Scheme.
