Victorian customers only
The Victorian Essential Services Commission set standardised ‘default prices’ for some electricity standing offers. This is known as the Victorian Default Offer, or VDO.
The Victorian State Government introduced the VDO in 2019 to make energy prices more affordable for Victorians. For customers on standing offers and market contracts, retailers are required to say how electricity prices that they advertise (e.g. energy plan prices) compare to the VDO.
The price of your electricity depends on your usage, the distribution zone you live in and the type of tariff you have.
All electricity retailers, including Powerdirect, must make the default prices available as a ‘standing offer’ to home and small business customers. You wouldn’t be on a standing offer if you’ve instead signed up to a specific energy plan, called a ‘market contract’.
We’re committed to making energy fairer for our customers. We’re here to help you understand the default price and how it compares with your current plan and other market rates.
