Households continue to benefit from policies supporting reduced power costs. The Default Market Offer determined by the Australian Energy Regulator will see power bills for the 68 000 households on legacy, or standard offers, fall by 6.3% from July 1 2021. This should also result in further reductions for customers on cheaper market offers from July 1.

These customers have already seen total reductions of around $269 from mid 2018 to October 2020.
