If you want to start comparing energy plans and providers, here’s a few tips.
Your current plan
Whether you’re looking for a new provider, weighing up your options or moving house, it’s good to use your current plan to gauge what you are looking for.
Look at your electricity usage
Are you aware of how much electricity you use? It’s good to understand your monthly watts compared with how many people are in your household. You can also use these bills to see exactly what you’re spending per watts which will help you compare with other providers. You might find that you can even reduce your energy and gas by minimising use of air conditioning, taking advantage of natural light and swapping to energy efficient lighting.
Ask about discounts
Your provider wants you to stay for the long haul, which is why they will incentivise it. Other providers also offer discounts and extras if you choose to bundle gas and electricity, or simply use their service. You may want to ask your current provider if there are any discounts you might now know of, or ask prospective providers what you are eligible for.
Look at your region’s suppliers
Not every provider services every area, so it’s good to check on what’s available in your suburb. It’s good to acknowledge that some suburbs may also have added costs based on the suburb, which could factor into your overall rate. Understanding your region will help you find the best possible deal available.
Ask for a price breakdown
Price breakdowns show you everything factored into your rate, including GST, regional costs, service fees, etc. If you are someone who likes detail, a price breakdown can help you better understand how your fee is determined, This gives you something to compare with other rates and breakdowns.
You should only commit to a contract if you are completely happy with it, so make sure you read the fine print and get an understanding of what you are committing to. What are the exit clauses? How can you pay bills? What term or length must you commit to with your provider? Find a contract that meets you needs.
Flexibility and service
We all want good customer service, and providers will want to be flexible with your needs to keep your happy. A good way to check on service is to see what reviews customers make on various social media profiles and their website. You should also speak to your provider about flexibility in contracts, payment and other options.
