Energy retail offer prices
Each year the Commission provides to the Minister for Energy and Mining a comparison report on energy retail price offerings available to South Australian small customers (residential and small business) for the previous financial year.
In monitoring energy retail offer prices, the Commission applies an “annual bill” approach, using set levels of consumption by customers. This provides a snapshot of retail energy offers available in the market at a particular time. However, it must be recognised that market conditions are dynamic and actual pricing outcomes will depend on the amount of electricity consumed, retail prices and the terms and conditions of a customer’s electricity retail contract.
The reports below provide information on "Standing Offer" and "Market Offer" prices that have applied for gas and electricity since 1 July 2013.
