Ergon Energy is a state-owned electricity producer and distributor that covers about 97% of Queensland, all except for the south-east region. While Ergon customers don't get a choice of retailer unlike those elsewhere, power prices are regulated so that they can't abuse their lack of competition.
With Ergon Energy, you can't pick a plan, but you can choose what type of tariffs you're charged under.
While the south-east corner of Queensland is a deregulated energy market where customers can compare and switch retailers easily, the rest of Queensland can only access electricity through Ergon.
While there's not really any competition in areas that Ergon is available, the company's pricing is regulated, so it can't artificially increase the price of electricity thanks to its position as the sole retailer.
Ergon does have a range of plans for its customers to choose from, with both fixed and variable usage tariffs to suit an individual household's usage needs, so comparing your options with Ergon can still end up saving you money.
