What is an electrical tariff?

Tariff is the team uses to describe how customers are charged for their electricity usage. They determine the way you are charged for power, so it's important to find the right electrical tariff to suit the needs of your home or business. You may pay the same rate for all electricity usage, or you might be charged different rates depending on the time of day it is used. Different off-peak tariffs can also be used to run specific appliances in your home.

Wondering who determines what tariff you pay? The electricity distribution companies do, as they build and maintain the power poles and power lines that deliver electricity to your home or business. In Queensland, there are two electricity distributors, Energex and Ergon Energy.

Your energy bill will be made up of two main costs, comprising supply charges, and usage charges.

Tariff categories

  • Peak (Weekdays 4 pm - 8 pm) this is when electricity is in peak demand and therefore most expensive. Peak tariff rates in Queensland generally cost 18 to 25 cents per kWh.
  • Off Peak (10 pm - 7 am) This is when demand for power is lower and electricity usage rates are cheapest. Off-peak rates usually cost between 12 to 16 cents per kWh.
  • Shoulder (All other times) In between Peak and Off-peak times, a shoulder rate is charged. This rate is cheaper than peak but more expensive than off-peak, usually costing around 19 to 23 cents per kWh.

What is an economy tariff?

An economy tariff is a lower-priced electricity tariff which is often limited to electricity use at certain times of the day.

Economy tariffs are great for appliances like hot water systems and pool pumps that don't need a constant supply of power. Economy tariffs must be used in conjunction with a primary (standard or tariff 11) tariff at the same address and can not be used to run an entire household or business.
