Why do Mojo’s 0% mark up energy rates vary in different states and network areas?

Last Updated -

0% mark up energy rates vary by state and network area for two main reasons:

  • Distributors in different network areas charge different amounts to transport electricity from generators to households (it is often more expensive in areas that are large and more sparsely populated).
  • Generation costs in each state vary. This is often dependent on the types of electricity generation used in that state. At present, coal-fired generators tend to have a cheaper energy price, whilst renewables such as hydro, wind and solar are more expensive. This is expected to change as the price of renewable energy drops and coal becomes more expensive.
