What is the average electricity bill

The average New South Wales electricity bill is close to $1,300 annually. Average power bills for elderly Australians are generally much lower (around $800 annually), while busy young and middle-aged homeowners often spend closer to $1,500 per year on power.

The good news is that GoSwitch investigates every means of saving you money on energy bills to offset the increase in electricity prices. We partner with leading energy retailers to deliver competitive energy deals for Australian homes and small businesses. Don’t settle for an ‘average’ energy deal; let GoSwitch find you a better energy plan absolutely free of charge.
