A market contract is a contract negotiated between you and a retailer. Unlike a deemed or standing offer contracts, the Essential Services Commission does not oversee the terms and conditions, and the prices do not have to be published by the retailer. Market contracts may have a fixed term (generally between one and three years).
Standing Offer contract.
This is a contract where the contract terms are approved by the Essential Services Commission and at prices that are periodically published by each retailer and are available on their websites. Standing Offer contracts must be offered to you by the retailer who is Financially Responsible for the energy supplied to the meter, where you do not want to have a Market contract with a retailer of your choice.
If you do not know who is responsible is for your meter, you can call your distributor, who is able to determine which retailer is responsible.
This is the type of contract you will be on if move into a premises, start consuming energy, and do not enter into a specific contract with a retailer. A deemed contract will be between you and the retailer who is Financially Responsible for the meter at the premise.
Deemed and Standing Contracts have Terms and Conditions that are approved by the Essential Services Commission and prices that are periodically published by each retailer and are available on their websites.
