Cheap electricity rates in Sydney
Electricity usage rates in Sydney are measured in kW/h (kilowatts per hour). There are two main factors that determine associated costs:
Electricity Usage: The amount of energy used by a property is dependent on the type of appliances you use, the energy efficiency of the appliances, and when you use the appliances.
Electricity Prices: The kW/h price you pay for power is the other major factor influencing energy costs. Energy retailers each offer their own kW/h rates. A good deal on kW/h electricity will result in a better overall energy deal.
In addition, electricity providers offer a wide range of contract features and incentives. GoSwitch will locate incentives available for your postcode and give you lots of opportunities to fine-tune your contract for maximum savings. The power is in your hands with GoSwitch.
Renewable Energy – Benefits and Comparing providers
Renewable energy is an important consideration. Options include wind power, hydro, and solar power energy solutions. Sunshine is free, and Australia is the ideal country to take advantage of hot summers and mild winters.
Energy retailers in Sydney buy solar energy feed-in tariffs back to the grid. After the initial setup costs, a quality solar power system will reduce monthly bills and pay for itself over time. GoSwitch can locate solar power renewable energy initiatives for a green power carbon-neutral electricity plan.
The powerful GoSwitch energy price comparison tool can even target the best value solar systems for your home. Plus, you get to speak with an energy expert who can guide you every step of the way for optimised electricity bill savings.

A smart meter can be connected to your home for additional control over your power bills. Smart meters are becoming common for lots of good reasons, including.
- Eliminate manual monthly meter readings
- Monitor your electricity system and usage in real-time
- Encourage efficient use of power resources, such as off-peak electricity
- Provide responsive data for balancing loads and reducing blackouts
- Enable dynamic pricing arrangements

GoSwitch electricity deals are the real deal from leading Australian retailers. Here are a few tips for saving even more money on electricity bills.
- Keep your home dry. Open the curtains to let the sun in during winter. Avoid drying clothes indoors as this creates moisture.
- Turn off appliances when they are not in use. Standby appliance mode requires electricity.
- Wash clothes in cold water whenever possible. The efficiency of machines and detergents has improved. A hot water wash can use up to 10 times as much energy as cold water.
- Don’t be over-reliant on your clothes dryer. Air-dry whenever possible. Regularly clean the lint filter to ensure the dryer works efficiently.
- Use heaters sparingly, on a lower setting if possible to reduce energy consumption around the house.
- Use heat pumps efficiently, and only when needed. Keep the filters clean for better energy efficiency.
- Run appliances at night during off-peak energy usage times, when demand for electricity is far lower and electricity prices are cheaper.
- Take advantage of government initiatives for healthy homes, such as solar panel installation rebates.
