Do you consume more than 100,000 kWh's annually?
Are you paying a 'Peak Demand Surcharge'?
Peak Electricity Demand occurs when there is a high volume point of usage at one time. This could be a single power spike of 1 second in any 30 minute period. Because of this peak, you are charged at the Demand Rate appropriate to the Tariff you are on (eg. Tariff 8300 in Qld).
The result is, your power costs could be as much as
3 or 4 times the non-peak charges.
