Retailer ownership structures

The Australian retail energy market includes both regulated and deregulated jurisdictions. In the regulated areas, there is generally only a single regulated retailer with pricing set by the relevant state government. If you're in WA, NT, or north or central QLD, you're in a regulated area, and there is only a single choice of provider.

In other parts of Australia, there is retail competition among many retailers. Here's a summary of the ownership structures for these retailers:
