How will the carbon price affect electricity costs in your state or territory?
The impact of the carbon price on your electricity bill will vary depending on which state or territory you live in.
This is because different states generate their electricity from a combination of brown coal, black coal, gas, hydro, wind and solar power.
The impact is also influenced by whether your state or territory is connected to large wholesale electricity markets, such as the National Electricity Market on the east coast.
The rules regarding the regulation of electricity prices also vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction.
There is no regulation of retail electricity prices in Victoria, or for customers in other states or territories who have chosen their electricity retailer.
In all states except Victoria, the price that non-market customers pay for their electricity is regulated by independent regulators (New South Wales, Queensland, Australian Capital Territory, South Australia, Tasmania) or their state/territory government (Western Australia, Northern Territory).
On average, only $9 out of every $100 of your electricity bill is due to the carbon price.
But to help households accurately gauge the impact the carbon price will have on their electricity costs, a state-by-state breakdown has been prepared.
The breakdown shows how the carbon price will influence household electricity bills in each state and territory in 2012-13.
