Energy Prices and Plans NSW

The energy market in NSW is deregulated, allowing you to choose from a range of energy providers in your area. Australia is a big country, so you will need to check the available energy providers and energy retailers according to your postcode.

Electricity generated in power stations is distributed around the country and overseen by regional networks. For example, the Ausgrid network maintains electricity infrastructure and supply for large parts of Sydney and surrounds. Independent energy retailers then take over, focusing on Sydney and regional NSW services. Competition is strong to give you a better electricity deal, so it’s good to know there is an easy way to compare the offers of electricity retailers.

Deregulation in NSW

The deregulated NSW energy industry means there is a lot of competition vying for your business. Prices are naturally impacted by decisions of the Australian Energy Regulator (AER) in its role as part of the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission.

In other words, the open energy market offers lots of savings’ opportunities, while your contract is protected by government agencies responsible for fair trading. Deregulation leads to a highly competitive industry and better deals for customers.

Renewable energy- what are your options

Energy in Australia is mostly sourced from mining activities, although there is a continued push for renewable energy initiatives. These include solar power and wind power systems. GoSwitch will find retailers who provide renewable energy usage options. By dedicating a part of your bill to renewable energy, you are lessening your carbon footprint.

In addition, you can sell electricity generated from solar panels back to the grid as solar feed-in tariffs. If you have solar connected to your home and are generating excess battery/electricity power, you can cash in and save on electricity bills.
