How Much Is The Average Electricity Bill In Victoria?

The average annual bill in Victoria has risen to $1,457, but the rewards for shopping around have never been greater.


In 2018 energy bills are putting an increasing strain on Aussie budgets. Price rises of 9-22% have added up to $316 to residential bills in the last year alone^. It’s prompted a lot of people to try to cut back on costs as the average annual electricity bill hit a new peak of $1,457 in Victoria*.

Despite these ever-rising costs, only around 1 in 4 people decide to switch suppliers, that’s despite savings of $652 for customers who switch from the median standing offer to the cheapest market offer^.

If you’d like to know what you could be saving, our service makes it easy to get a better deal. In just minutes you can review the options that are available in your area, from a panel that includes suppliers big and small. Our goal is to make home energy affordable for all Australians, through tools that make bargain shopping for energy quick, simple and effective.

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.

There are more than 3,800 offers in the National Energy Market, and the number of offers changes nearly every day, according to market analysis.

The sheer scale of available offers creates a huge barrier for consumers who want to understand what they’re paying for and know whether it’s a fair deal. This is especially the case when the quality of these offers range from great value to complete rip-offs, and most people don’t have the time to figure out the difference.

With our service you get access to our large-scale bargaining power, alongside no-markup policies from energy providers across Australia, making it easy to find the best deals in your area. This service makes comparison shopping for energy easy, and best of all it’s totally cost and obligation free.

If you decide to switch, same day connection is available in most cases, giving you the freedom to choose between suppliers without risking being without power.

Just last month around 35,000 Aussies chose to help them compare, switch and save. Cheaper energy bills are only a few clicks away. Why not join them?
