Electricity Plans – What you need to know

If you are struggling to keep up with rising energy costs, GoSwitch is ready to help. Our service is 100% free to use and the savings are all yours to keep. Here are a few more considerations for cutting costs on electricity rates.

Contract term : Retailers often offer discounts if you lock into an energy plan. However, you may benefit from a no lock-in contract.

Cooling-off period : Electricity and gas providers offer a 10-day cooling-off period in case you change your mind.

Terms and conditions : Terms and conditions can vary, and there are savings to be found. GoSwitch can assist.

Eligibility : This is important for gas deals, as natural gas may not be available at your new residence or small business.

Contract length : Savings can be found with flexible contract terms, payment schedules and other features.

Contract incentives : These may include pay-on-time discounts, direct debit payment discounts, off-peak saver discounts, and more.

Contract updates : Your energy retailer should keep you updated regarding services, usage rates, and incentives, and should be contactable online and over the phone.

Comparison services – How GoSwitch Can Help

Victorians are spoilt for choice when it comes to the energy market and energy provider options. From the regional centres of Bendigo, Ballarat and Geelong, the border cities of Echuca, Mildura and Wodonga all the way to Melbourne, the culture and sports capital of Australia, there is an energy provider that will suit you and your household.

As in any competitive market, the ability for consumers to benefit comes from two complementary factors:

  1. Consumers must regularly review and compare their current deal with what is currently available in the market.
  2. If you find a more suitable offering: Switch.

A willingness to review and switch keeps providers striving to offer the best possible electricity arrangements to their customers. If electricity providers know customers are happy to compare and switch, they are less likely to become complacent.
