Cheapest Electricity In Melbourne - Saving energy

Electricity travels vast distances before reaching its destination in Melbourne homes and businesses. Electricity is generated in power stations, then overseen by major state networks such as Powercor.

The electricity is then on-sold to localised retailers. There are many competing service providers in the deregulated Melbourne energy market, and a convenient GoSwitch search from the comfort of your own home will locate the best available deals. Our retail partners include:

Energy Australia: A well-known energy provider throughout South-East Australia.

AGL: Delivering gas, electricity, and telecommunications services for more than 130 years.

Dodo: A progressive electricity, gas, and internet services company.

OVO: Renewable energy comes standard, making carbon-neutral electricity a reality.

Prices in Victoria are overseen by the Essential Services Commission to maintain fair opportunity for all Melbourne energy retailers and customers.

Connecting Electricity when Moving Home

Moving to a new home or rental property is never easy. With GoSwitch, you can stick with your present electricity or gas retailer, or take advantage of the latest deals from competing retailers. At GoSwitch, we recommend fine-tuning your energy deal annually for maximum savings. Making the switch is easy, in a few simple steps:

  1. Choose an energy plan for your current premises or new address
  2. Choose renewable energy options if using solar panels
  3. Factor in any state concessions you receive
  4. Look for other savings features, such as a smart meter

Then let the GoSwitch energy price comparison tool work its magic. Within minutes, you have access to the latest energy deals and savings for your postcode. If you decide to make the switch to a better plan for your home or small business, all you need to do is:

  • Sign up for your new electricity/gas account
  • Inform your energy company where and when you are moving

GoSwitch retail partners can provide same-day urgent power connections also, although additional connection fees apply. It is generally best to give your retailer at least three business days notice of your move to ensure it all goes smoothly.

Finding the best plan and deal for you with GoSwitch

Instead of wading through plan information details, GoSwitch can do the search for you. Retailers in Vic, NSW, Qld, and other Australian states all offer promotional rates, discount rates, peak and off-peak savings, pay-on-time discounts, and other incentives.

The Victorian Government default market offer is still available, although there are dozens of ways to save in a deregulated market, and GoSwitch will show you how. Here are some reasons to switch to a better plan and lower electricity bills.

Moving to a new house: You will need electricity or gas connection at your new address. Start saving from your first bill.

The discount rate expiry: Switching providers is straightforward with GoSwitch on your side. If the incentives attached to your deal have expired, it may be time to make a switch.

Bills that keep creeping up: Don’t pay too much for electricity. Take contract features and incentives into consideration for keeping energy provider bills down.

A change in preference: Choose an Australian owned and operated electricity or gas retailer. For an environmentally conscious power choice, switch to a company that offers carbon-neutral power options.

A bad service experience: Connect with a company you can trust. We work with well known and highly regarded retailers.

More than 12 months with the same provider: Markets and prices are always changing. Review the service if you have been with your provider for 12 months or more.

Combine and save: Bundle your gas and electricity together. We even offer electricity + gas + broadband + home phone bundles.

Lower your energy bill using our free service. GoSwitch earns a commission from energy retailers for establishing new contracts, and the savings are all yours to keep.
