Comparing QLD Electricity Retailers – Which One’s Best?
So which QLD Electricity Retailer has the best rates? Well as you can see they all offer very different rates for different things, so there is no retailer which ticks every box and the best choice for you will depend on your power consumption habits and the amount of surplus solar power you feed into the grid.
PowerDirect seems to overall offer the best electricity rates in QLD.
Lumo Energy have electricity rates that stacked up pretty well especially if you are a very small consumer of electricity as the daily supply charge is by far the lowest of the electricity retailers compared here.
I hope this table has helped make some of your choices a little clearer. If there is another retailer you would like to see compared here please leave a comment below and we will endeavour to add them to the list.
