  • At 2009: an average increase of 8.7% per year for the last 4 years
  • At 2010: an average increase of 9.6% per year for the last 5 years

The above are actual rates from bills received covering those periods, with the July figures being taken from the issued Queensland regulated rates from July 1st 2009.

Another way of looking at changing Electricity costs over time, is this example:

An actual Electricity Bill costing in Nov 2003
2,047 kWh used at a total bill cost of $241.72 = a unit cost of $0.1181

An actual Electricity Bill costing in Nov 2009
2,564 kWh used at a total bill cost of $431.01 = a unit cost of $0.1681

That is an average cost increase of 6.06% per year over the last 6 years
QLD average Wages however have only risen by 5.15% per year over that same period
The NET rise is therefore 0.91% per year extra, assuming your power consumption stays the same.
