This report sets out likely future trends in residential electricity price movements in Australia, and the drivers behind those trends. To identify the trends, we have projected prices for one, flat rate, electricity tariff type. Accordingly, the projected residential electricity prices are not the same as the regulated retail tariffs set by jurisdictional regulators or Governments. They are not a definite forecast of future residential electricity prices.
For each jurisdiction and at a national level, this report adopts indicative prices for a base year 2010-11 and projects prices for the three financial years from 2011-12 to 2013-14.
