July is a common time for retailers to change their prices. If you find an offer you're interested in, you can ask the retailer whether they have any price changes planned.
Message for Tasmanian customers
The Australian Energy Regulator does not regulate gas in Tasmania. This means there are no gas offers for Tasmanian customers on Energy Made Easy.
Whether or not you have gas connected affects how much electricity you use. Energy Made Easy asks about your gas connection to provide an estimate of your electricity usage.
To find out more about offers available to residential customers, contact the retailer of your choice.
You can also find out more about electricity or gas in Tasmania from the Department of State Growth.
Select this to compare ‘dual fuel’ offers. These are offers where you get electricity and gas from the same retailer, usually under separate contracts.
You can compare dual fuel offers to electricity-only and gas-only offers on the results page.
A ‘single rate tariff’ is when you pay the same rate for electricity, regardless of when you use it.
You can get a single rate tariff on any kind of meter.
‘Time of use (TOU)’ tariffs have different prices depending on when you use electricity. They have a ‘peak’ (higher cost) period and ‘off-peak’ (lower cost) period. Some also have ‘shoulder’ periods where the cost is in-between. Your bill will show what you used in each period.
You need a smart or interval meter that can measure your usage at different times of day.
A ‘flexible pricing’ tariff is a type of time of use tariff where you pay different prices for electricity depending on when you use it.
You will only be able to search for flexible pricing tariffs if they are available in your area. You need a smart meter to get a flexible pricing tariff.
Select ‘I’m not sure’ if you don’t know your tariff type.
The calculator will assume you are on a single rate tariff.
Unfortunately we are unable to provide estimated bills for flexible pricing offers. Please continue your search if you would still like to see flexible pricing offers available in your area.
Your kWh usage is usually found on the second page of your bill under ‘Your usage and supply details’.
