Combining Gas and Electricity – Benefits of combining your plan

Close to 20% of Australian homes have both electricity and gas services, so a bundle electricity/gas plan can be a smart move. Energy retailers offer incentives for combining electricity, gas, internet, and home phone, and GoSwitch can make it happen.
