Look at your existing plan

Your existing plan will be a good starting point to gauge the prices and rates you’re looking at. If you are happy with your supplier but want to see if you could potentially save we recommend you call up your provider and ask about any potential discounts you can receive.

Calculate daily energy usage

If you have saved your bills you can look at the exact price per month you are spending, including the dollars per watts. This is a good idea if you’re looking to see if you can reduce any electricity spend in your household. If you’re comfortable with your usage you can then use the information to go back to other providers to compare and see if they can offer a better rate.

Ask about extras included

You might find your current supplier has added discounts or extras that you are eligible for, or you might find other suppliers have extras you aren’t getting currently. Reach out to your provider to see what you qualify for, and see what bundle discounts or extras are available with other providers.

Look at suppliers in your area

Make sure the providers you are looking at are available in your suburb. You can look at a comparison site that explores you suburb’s options, and then take a look at whether your area has impacted your rates.

Request a price breakdown

Suppliers will be able to provide you a price breakdown to help you determine what exactly is calculated in your rates. Some people prefer to look at the details, and it can help you compare the differences and similarities of different providers.

Look at your contracts

Your contract should be tailored to your needs, so ask about what contracts are available. You may be offered month-to-month or 6 or 12 month contracts. You should also ask about exit clauses and payment details.

Flexibility and customer service

Customer service will make a huge difference in your experience with your supplier, so take a look at flexibility of contracts, payment options and plans. Flexibility is always great. Do your research on available contracts and take a look at the suppliers’ reviews.

Rebates and concession

Low income earners are eligible for certain rebates and concessions. Take a look at what’s available in your area and talk to your provider about how they can support you in the process.
