Queensland Competition Authority releases the ‘Regulated Electricity Prices 2014/15’ final report.
Each year the Queensland Competition Authority (QCA) releases its decision on the regulated retail electricity prices that will apply for the following financial year for Queensland businesses and residents. For the 2014/15 financial year, the prices that will apply to tariff 11 prices are as follows.
Based on a typical customer consuming 4,100 kwh per year
|Tariff component||With carbon tax Without carbon tax||With carbon tax Without carbon tax|
|Service charge (cents/day)1||50.22||83.41||66.1%||83.41||66.1%|
|Annual bill(GST inclusive)2||$1,407||$1,599||$192||$1,480||$73|
What if you’re not a “typical” customer? The QCA has also outlined expected increases for four example households, as follows:
|Household size||Consumption(kWh)||2013–14 bill||2014–15 with carbon tax||Difference (%)||2014–15 without carbon tax||Difference (%)|
