How does the energy market work in the Northern Territory?
Despite the NT energy market being open to full retail competition since 2010, the choice of energy providers is still very limited.
The Power and Water Corporation distributes electricity to all of the NT and retails electricity to customers in remote communities.
For most NT residents, there are only two choices for electricity providers: Jacana Energy and Rimfire Energy. Jacana Energy is government-owned and the largest electricity provider in the NT. Rimfire Energy is a relative newcomer to the NT energy market and is the only non-government energy retailer available to most customers in the state.
Gas retailer Kleenheat offers LPG and portable gas bottle services across the NT.
