Benefits of a competitive market

  • Increased competition in power generation and retailing, placing downward pressure on costs and prices.
  • Private sector investment in energy infrastructure, freeing up government funds for much needed social infrastructure.
  • Innovative market-based solutions to energy supply issues.
  • Long term jobs created, many in regional areas.
  • De-centralised sources of power generation in regional areas.
  • Diversified ownership of assets.
  • Reduced risk of disruption to supply.
