What You Need To Know Before Switching Electricity Retailer
Beware though, as you will need to do your homework, making sure you understand:
Firstly your current tariff charges & details.
Changes in any tariff costs per kWh used.
Changes in the type of tariff. Is it fixed, quantity or time of use based?
If the tariff offered is quantity based, what are the rates and when do they change?
If the tariff is time of use, what are the different times of change and cost per kWh?
Are there any changes to the cost for the 'pole and wires' charge? This is your daily service charge.
Are you going to be locked into a contract and if so what are the [ETC] early termination charges.
Can you go back to the original offer with your current provider? This may be not available if you try to switch back!
Another important fact to be taken into account, is the action of switching to a TIME OF USE tariff where a new meter is installed. Note you may be stuck on this tariff type, after this time with most providers. Most households in Australia though, are going to be switched to a TOU type meter and tariff. State Governments are already rolling out Time Of Use meter to households, on mass.
