Residential Demand Charges Comparison

Demand Charges

Listed below are electricity retailer’s demand rates for households in the Australian Capital Territory, South Australia and Victoria.
Residential electricity demand charges are a capacity charge based on a maximum amount of electricity consumed in a defined period – usually 30 to 60 minutes – during certain time periods or months e.g. 3:00PM to 9:00PM on work days only in November to March. The demand component is usually charged based on a cents per kWh or kVA per day basis.

Demand Charges 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 demand charge is important, but you also need to consider daily charges, usage rates (and feed-in tariffs if you have solar). WATTever’s comprehensive electricity comparison includes all this information for every retailer.
