How much money can you save by Comparing and Switching your Electricity Company?
The quickest and easiest way to reduce your energy bills and save money is by comparing the deals and prices offered by the different electricity companies that operate in your area. Unfortunately, many consumers don’t compare and switch because they don’t have the time to research deals or they find the whole electricity industry to be too confusing.
The ACCC’s 2017 Retail Electricity Pricing Inquiry found that most consumers found it difficult to compare offers because of inconsistent terminology and confusing discounting structures. The report found that many consumers rated their experience with their current electricity company as ‘satisfactory’ simply because they were unaware of their options or better offers available from competitors.
If you’re frustrated by the rising cost of electricity in your area, it’s time to do something about it. Residential and business customers can help keep the retail cost of electricity as low as possible by increasing the pressure on retailers to offer more competitive rates and plans.
By taking just a few moments to call Electricity Wizard or filling in the form below, you will be able to compare what’s on offer from electricity companies in your state. It really is easy to compare energy retailers and save money on your power bills!

The benefits of comparing electricity companies in Australia
When it comes to electricity usage, there are a few basic factors that are beyond the control of retail consumers. In each state and territory in Australia, the energy industry is made up of companies who generate electricity, the transmission network, wholesale distributors, and retail electricity companies who sell energy to homes and businesses.
Residential and business electricity usage is measured in kilowatt hours by the retail electricity supplier. This usage is then charged according to either fixed tariff rates or time of usage rates. The units of electricity that you use are multiplied by the unit price for the specific time that the electricity was consumed.
Each electricity company has their own unique pricing structure. This means consumers have the power to choose an electricity company who offers a pricing and plan structure that suits their needs.
When you compare and switch electricity providers, you have the opportunity to find a cheaper rate that could save you hundreds of dollars per year. But an Electricity Wizard comparison can do more than just compare prices.
