Quick Answer

Because Tasmania is part of the National Electricity Market (NEM) we don’t only use and buy power generated in Tasmania, this means that interstate and overseas events and pressures can have an impact on our prices.

Last year, wholesale prices decreased, Aurora Energy’s prices also decreased by 7.11% for residential and 11% for small businesses.

While most of the power we use in Tassie is generated by local hydro and wind, we do also use and buy power from the mainland.
