Aurora Energy Rates to other retailers
Electricity prices have been continuously rising in Australia, and it’s all over the news. Many families & businesses are struggling with these expensive power prices. Electricity Monster is a broker that compares rates from our partners.
Until recently, Aurora Energy, who are owned by the Tasmanian Government, were pretty much the only option available to get your home connected in Tasmania. However, 1st Energy has just entered the Tasmanian market in 2019, so the dominance of Aurora Energy is now being challenged. Competition in the Tasmanian markets has been open since July 2014, however, most competitors have stayed away from the market because of the regulated prices in the state, which is set by the state government.
Aurora Energy’s dominance in Tasmania through the years as the only retailer operating in the market has seen them amass a large chunk of the market. In fact, they power the homes of over 240,000 Tasmanians, as well as over 35,000 small businesses in the state.
Tasmanians generally do not have easy access to enough gas which has led to homes in the state using more power than homes in other states in Australia. Given those circumstances, it is vital to get yourself on an excellent plan in Tasmania. With flat rates and no confusing discounts, the appeal to homes and businesses in Tasmania is clear to see.
Aurora provides electricity and gas for homes and businesses in Tasmania.

Unlike Aurora Energy, however, it must be said that most power providers showcase discounts - particularly ones that are applicable if you pay your bills on time and you have a direct debit payment option enabled. We’ve compiled the top things to keep in mind while searching for a new power provider.
Pay As You Go
Aurora Energy has a unique payment plan for homeowners in Tasmania that allows your home to pay for the power used by buying some credits in advance. The company claims that by adopting such a payment plan, budgeting for homes can be made more simple. The credits that can be purchased according to the plan can be bought from PAY AS YOU GO agents around Tasmania. A complication; the PAYG plan does cause one difficulty, however, as you need to set up a meter at your property that is compatible with the PAYG plan.
Aurora Energy allows you to make a payment via Credit Card or even via BPAY. You can also choose to activate a direct debit option on your account so that you are never susceptible to the late payment charge if you forget to pay your bill before it becomes due. You could also pay for your power bill by going to your nearest Australia Post branch. The easiest option perhaps is the chance to make a payment over the phone by sharing your account or card details with an Aurora Energy customer rep.
In 1998, the Hydro-Electric Corporation (HEC) was split up into three different entities by the Tasmanian state government. The generation of electricity would be done through Hydro Tasmania, the transmission of electricity or gas would be done by a distribution business named Transend while the retail arm became Aurora Energy. In 2014, a distribution arm of Aurora Energy was merged with the transmission business of Transend to create the distributor TasNetworks. At the same time, the retail market was made open to competition to improve efficiencies. It is only recently, however, that competitors have entered the market.
