- Choosing a retailer: In NSW you can buy your electricity from the Standard Electricity Retailer for your area, or take up negotiated contract with a licensed retailer. Note that a retailer doesn't have to offer you a contract or they may not retail in your area.
- Standard Electricity Retailers: If you don't enter into a negotiated contract your electricity will be supplied by one of the Standard Electricity Retailers under a regulated tariff. To find the standard retailer for your area visit www.ipart.nsw.gov.au
- Electricity distributors: Distributors are responsible for reading your meter and maintaining network assets. There are three distributors in NSW with designated network areas: Ausgrid, Endeavour Energy and Essential Energy.
The Independent Pricing and Regulatory Tribunal (IPART) oversees the licensing, pricing and compliance of electricity suppliers in NSW.
