How long does it take to switch electricity suppliers?
Making an informed decision regarding standing offers and ongoing savings takes only a few minutes. However, the switching process can take between one to three months to complete, depending on your electricity retailer and your billing cycle. Switching is usually faster for homes with a smart meter installed. We make the transition smooth at GoSwitch, allowing you to switch without any disruption to your electricity or gas supply.
Finding the right electricity deal for you
Before switching, examine the plan you are on now, including daily supply charges and usage rates. This can get confusing for people unfamiliar with energy terminology. Your present plan may include:
You may also have a controlled load rate linked to a specific appliance (such as a hot water system) that only works at off-peak times.
Electricity costs are also determined by the type of meter you use.
Electricity Retailers also apply daily supply charges and various discounts to your bill. If you have solar power, there is the option for savings via feed-in tariffs applied to energy exported to Ausgrid.
Deregulation of electricity in Australia
A deregulated business environment means there is no longer a government regulator monopoly on electricity supply and distribution. Competitive pricing and price fluctuations are part of the deregulated electricity industry, and competition is fierce. Consumers are the big winners, with lots of energy plan savings on offer from electricity and gas retailers. Search for the cheapest electricity and gas supplier with GoSwitch.
The energy market is deregulated in New South Wales, Victoria, Queensland, South Australia and Tasmania. The changes have resulted in energy providers and energy retailers offering lots of incentives to entice new customers, and you can now switch electricity retailers for a better plan whenever you want. GoSwitch will help you make an informed decision and the right choice for saving money on electricity bills.
