Electricity

Electricity - Air Conditioner

Victoria has one of the most competitive retail electricity markets in the world, reinforced by strong consumer protections.

Victoria’s electricity system is independently regulated and operates within the National Electricity Market (NEM).

While renewable energy sources such as wind and solar power are playing an increasing role in Victoria's electricity generation, fossil fuels remain the major source of Victoria's electricity and currently account for more than 85 per cent of Victoria's electricity generation.
