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.

“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.
From March 2021, there has been fierce discounting of grid electricity offers by several energy retailers in Victoria. So we ran the numbers to find out if the plans available now are cheaper than any deal since WATTever began comparing every electricity plan listed on retailers websites in July 2017.
The arrival of low-cost electricity retailer ReAmped Energy into Victoria in March and into the ACT today is excellent news for energy shoppers wanting a better deal. Over the last two years, the independent electricity retailer has been a leading force lowering energy costs by intensifying price competition.
Australia’s consumer watchdog has released new figures showing electricity prices have fallen almost 9 per cent since the middle of last year. As a result, there is a staggering $900 million in potential savings up for grabs for households in eastern and southern states.
