A zero-fuss approach to comparing energy plans
Electricity and gas prices are on the rise. Over the decade from 2000 to 2013, these prices had risen from 72% and 34% respectively . These figures are only expected to increase.
How to correctly compare plans
If your current objective is to reduce the cost of your gas and electricity bills, we encourage you to conduct an energy health check now. This assessment determines the options available to your property and needs, specifically within your postcode.
In return, you’ll be given a comprehensive list of offers, the best at the top of the list, helping you picking the right path for your home or business. Because your electricity bill is generated with a number of factors in mind, we take account for several details when assessing your opportunities.
Note: In order to make sure you get the most accurate health check, we recommend having a recent electricity or gas bill on hand whilst using the tool
All you have to do is enter your actual energy usage and review alternative plans to see how much you can save by switching providers. Once you’ve pinpointed the right option for you, we take care of the rest – we’ll deal with everything from A to B, including the transfer, paperwork, set up and communication with your former provider.
How electricity plans work
Receiving a bill in the mail can be a confusing process to wade through. There are lots of details to consider and a plethora of data to wrap your head around – so how do you know you’re even getting a good deal?
Half the challenge is understanding how these plans work, allowing you to assess each option open to you and the fine print that comes with them. All electricity bills are typically split up into two specific charges:
Daily supply charge: You can’t control this cost. It’s the fee your retailer charges your property on a daily basis, no matter how much energy you use. This price is typically fixed.
Usage charge: This part you can control and is the cost that you pay for the electricity you use. This is measured per unit and is listed on your bill as cents per kilowatt-hour (c/kWh).
From there, you’ll need to consider the kind of plan you’ve signed up for and the meter you have installed on your property. Your system may range from single rate, time of use and feed-in tariffs – all of which come with their own pros and cons. During your energy health check with our team, we’ll explain which option you can best utilise for your needs and circumstances.
