Residential Demand Charges Comparison

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