Average Fees shown. Fees are sourced from Basic Plan Information Documents and Energy Fact Sheets. Blank values reflect that a retailer does not publish fee on their fact sheets (for that network). For connection and disconnection charges where the retailer specifically states that they will not be charged, a value of $0 is entered reducing the average fee across a retailers plans.
Disclaimer: We review retailer sites at least weekly to ensure we have a complete set of plans for all retailers serving each electricity network to provide you with the widest choice. However, it is possible that we may not have all of the latest fact sheets for each retailer’s plans. You should always review the Terms and Conditions of any contract taken up with the retailer to ensure you have the latest information.
