Agricultural tariff initiative

The agricultural tariff initiative, launched in 2017, captured the experiences of around 200 agricultural businesses utilising various electricity tariffs.

The trial has now concluded.

Designed in partnership with Energy Queensland, Queensland Farmers' Federation, Cotton Australia and Canegrowers, the initiative identified various agricultural load profiles and the operational and/or cost impacts to some agricultural businesses when operating under different tariff structures.

Findings have shown many primary producers could reduce their electricity bills by moving to standard or load controlled electricity tariffs.
