Your distributor (the company that owns the poles and wires in your area) may charge a reconnection fee when moving into your property and connecting electricity (or reading your meter where applicable).
To find your reconnection fee:
From 1 July 2019, an electricity reference price has been introduced to help customers compare electricity rates.
Energy companies are required to make a Default Market Offer (or DMO) available to residential and small business customers in New South Wales, South Australia and south east Queensland and a Victorian Default Offer (or VDO) in Victoria.
The Default Market Offer is the annual maximum total bill amount energy companies can charge for the ‘standing offer’ electricity prices based on a set average usage amount. This is called a “reference price” and is designed to make it easier for customers to compare energy plans across different providers.
To learn more, see our New South Wales changes
The Victorian Default Offer is a regulated price for electricity that will replace standing offer tariffs advertised by energy companies in Victoria. The Victorian Default Offer price is set annually for each electricity distribution zone based on an average customer.
It will also serve as a comparison for discounted electricity offers. For example, if an energy company is offers a plan with a 10% discount, that must be compared to the Victorian Default Offer. To learn more, see our Victorian changes.
If you’re already an EnergyAustralia Victorian customer, your bill will tell you if you could pay less on another EnergyAustralia plan.
If you haven’t reviewed your energy plan for a while, you may not be taking advantage of our latest offers. Take a look at our best energy plans.
We offer Regular Pay, a flexible payment plan to residential customers. We estimate your annual usage and ensure that estimated payment installments will cover your energy usage.

- Outstanding account balance for the account is $1500 or more

We’re committed to helping our customers reduce their environmental impact as well as supporting the transition to cleaner sources of power.
Through our Go Neutral program, residential customers can elect to offset the carbon emissions from their electricity use at no additional cost to them. On behalf of customers participating in the program we invest in a range of Australian and international projects accredited under the National Carbon Offset Standard. Find out more information about Go Neutral.
The energy we supply to customers comes from a range of sources. We operate our own portfolio of power stations in accordance with strict environmental conditions. We are however one of the country’s biggest generators of power from fossil fuels. Each year we produce around 22 million tonnes of greenhouse gases, mostly carbon dioxide, from burning coal and gas to supply electricity. That gives us a significant responsibility when it comes to reducing carbon emissions.
One way we have reduced emissions is by investing in our existing generation to improve efficiency. In 2015, for example, we completed a major maintenance program at the Yallourn power station in Victoria which has allowed the plant to produce power for another 100,000 homes without having to burn extra coal.
But improving our existing generation is not enough. We are also supporting a transition to cleaner sources of power.
To date we’ve invested more than $3 billion in over 1000MW of renewable generation. This investment is in the form of long-term agreements to purchase power from new wind and solar projects, giving these projects the financial security they need to get off the ground.
We also invest in projects to make better use of renewable energy. Traditionally, wind and solar energy has had to be used as it is produced and hasn’t been there when the sun isn’t shining or the wind isn’t blowing.
As the operator of major battery facilities at Gannawarra and Ballarat in Victoria, we are opening up new opportunities to capture and store renewable energy for later use. To expand the role we are playing in energy storage, we are now investigating pumped hydro projects that would effectively operate as batteries, pumping water uphill when demand for energy is low and releasing it to drive a turbine and produce electricity when it is needed.
