Free Comparison Service Helps Aussies Save Big on Energy Plans

If you’re a senior citizen in South Australia and haven’t compared energy providers within the last 12 to 24 months, you could be overpaying for your electricity.

You could also be missing out on an energy rebate that will take a further $231 off your electricity bill. The first step to significant savings is to compare energy providers.

Here’s How You Do It:

Step 1: Select your State below.
Step 2: After answering a few questions, you will have the opportunity to compare quotes in your area and could be eligible for significant savings.

Why Australian seniors shouldn’t be overpaying for gas or electricity

Australian Seniors are facing financial pressure as the cost of living continues to rise* for both self-funded retirees and aged pensioners. And with Aussies paying some of the highest energy rates in the world** there’s little relief in sight.

That’s why it’s so important to do your homework when it comes to choosing an energy provider. In fact, comparing energy providers at least every 12 to 24 months could save you hundreds of dollars every year.

But comparing energy providers is only the first step to securing a better deal. You may also be able to access an energy concession for seniors.

What energy rebates can you claim back as a South Australian senior?

In South Australia, eligible seniors can claim a further $231 off your energy bills under the state government Energy Bill Concession.
