A tariff is simply a pricing model or structure that has been set by the electricity provider or retailer, and you get charged by the cents per kilowatt hour (c/kWh). A tariff comprises of a "fixed" charge that pays for the daily supply of energy, and a "variable" charge which is weighed upon your energy usage for the billing period.
Every state has at least two different types of energy tariffs: the standard offers and the market offers.
The standard offers meet the minimum requirements of the government, while the market offer can be set at any price, for any amount of contract duration, and retailers can offer discounts and other incentives to make the offer more attracting.
Queensland, ACT and Tasmania have a third option, which are government regulated offers that allow for customers to sign up to a simple and reliable form of energy.
There are many different types of tariff structures that differ from state to state. While the names used here will be their most common name, the structures may be referred to by different names depending on the electricity retailer and the state that you are in.Single rate: this is the standard rate, and it does not differ over the course of the year, regardless of the time of day or season in the year. Block rate: there will be a charge for the first "block" of energy usage, followed by a different charge rate for the following "blocks", which can be divided daily, monthly or quarterly; this is the only structure that gas users can select. Time-of-use: the rates will be more expensive during "peak" hours when the electricity is in high demand, while "off-peak" hours will be significantly cheaper; the time in between the two periods are called "shoulder" hours, and they are priced somewhere in between the two. Controlled load: a unique rate for households that require certain appliances to run overnight; they may be subjected to a cheaper rate due to being supplied energy in "off-peak" hours. Feed-in tariff: for households who are 'feeding' energy collected from solar panels back into the grid; this incurs a credit which goes towards the next bill, lowering the required cost of the bill.
