Compare electricity plans in Victoria

Electricity affordability is a hot topic. Fortunately, there have been changes in recent years aimed at improving the cost of electricity in Victoria. GoSwitch can help you find one of the best value electricity plans for you and your household or small business. Firstly, it’s worth understanding the difference between energy distributors such as AusNet services, Powercor, and Citipower, and Electricity/gas retailers that include Energy Australia, AGL, and Dodo.

Your total bill will include fixed distribution charges along with charges from your chosen electricity retailer.

Distributors are responsible for maintaining infrastructure and fixing faults, while retailers can fine-tune your electricity deal with a wide range of savings incentives such as:

  • Single rate tariffs without peak or off-peak periods
  • Time-of-use tariffs with price changes at different times of the day
  • Controlled load tariffs aimed at specific appliances such as a hot water cylinder

The GoSwitch comparison service will help you explore electricity plans and gas plans in Melbourne and regional Victoria.

Energy Providers VIC

Comparing Victorian energy rates can become complex and time-consuming. Depending on your postcode, it may be worth considering the Victorian default offer for various types of tariffs in Melbourne and beyond. The Victorian Government default is reset each year after accessing the costs of electricity retailers. Customers are offered a fair electricity deal, although it will not necessarily be the lowest available price.

An initial consideration is to understand how electricity is charged in Victoria. The Victorian Default Offer consists of a daily supply charge as well as a usage charge measured in kilowatts per hour (kWh). Differences in tariffs are reflected in costs associated with providing electricity services in your area.

Default Offer (standing offer): Regulated by the Victorian Government

Market Offer: Negotiated with your present retailer or by switching retailers

It’s worth finding out about the default offer in your region and using the GoSwitch price comparison service to shop around and see if you can get a better deal in the deregulated marketplace.

Understanding the Melbourne energy market can help you save money on electricity and gas bills. The deregulated industry provides electricity retailers with the opportunity to offer highly competitive incentives for switching from your present retailer. Using the GoSwitch service, you can explore Electricity prices in Melbourne from the comfort of your own home, and find the right deal for your postcode.

Here are a few tips to get you started, and you can contact GoSwitch anytime for more information and inspiration.

  1. Examine current plan exit fees: Make sure to review your current plan to find out if there are any early exit fees. Compare the savings of a new plan with any termination charges associated with your current plan.
  2. Review your current charges and discounts: By understanding your current situation, you will have a better idea of the good value associated with competing plans. Your GoSwitch call-centre consultant can guide you through the entire process.
  3. Ensure outstanding bills are paid: You won’t be able to switch energy retailers if you have an outstanding debt or overdue payments with your current provider. This doesn’t include the completion of your current billing cycle. It’s worth noting that the final bill from your current retailer can take several weeks to be issued after switching to a new retailer.
  4. Determine your energy needs: The energy plan you choose should be tailored to meet your specific requirements. Things to consider include:
    •               Location
    •                Type of residence
    •                Number of people in your household
    •                The hours or days when people are likely to be home
  1. Compare previous bills: A reasonably reliable estimate of your electricity and gas usage can be understood by comparing energy bills from the previous year. This will provide an indication of how your electricity and gas use varies across the changing seasons.

  1. Compare energy plans: This is where GoSwitch comes into the picture. Head to our energy comparison service page and choose electricity, gas, or both. You should also tell us if you want to establish a better deal for your present address or a new address and if you have solar panels installed. GoSwitch will then locate attractive electricity or gas deals that are tailored just for you.
  2. Weigh up the pros and cons:Our offers are among the best available. These offers usually come with a time limit, but we want you to be completely satisfied with your decision, so take the time to weigh up the pros and cons. We can help you examine the details.
  3. Lock in a better deal: You can get a better deal online or over the phone with GoSwitch. The changeover typically takes place on your next meter read.
  4. Note your new billing cycle: Your new billing cycle may be different from your current one. Some energy providers offer free smartphone apps that alert you when your bill is due. If you are looking for the best electricity deals in Melbourne, here’s how GoSwitch can help.
