New Comparison Service Helps Aussies Save Big on Energy Plans

For many Australians, energy bills are becoming a big drain on their budget. To add to the pressure, energy suppliers raised their rates this month, with some providers increasing prices by 20%. This has prompted Aussie households to look for ways to cut costs and make more of their budget, though this is a lot easier than it might seem.

New comparison website, ElectricityAndGas.com.au, is shaking up the energy market by giving Australians the chance to compare energy plans and check if they can save by switching to another energy supplier.

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.

The move will be welcomed by Aussie families struggling to meet the rising costs of electricity and gas. Electricity bills are set to rise by 5% to 17% depending on your state, and these costs are driven by the recently approved Australian Energy Regulator network price hikes.

Australians are paying out more than ever before on their energy costs but many people don’t realise they can move away from their current supplier, especially if they’re not locked into a fixed contract, and get more from their budget as a result,” says founder Jonathan Leane. “We’ve created ElectricityAndGas.com.au to make it really simple for consumers to compare energy quotes and help them to get the best energy plan for their needs and budget.”

Using the service, Australians can compare multiple energy suppliers, quotes and plans all in one place. This saves lots of time and there’s also the financial benefit – users can save serious money on their bills each month by comparing energy quotes.

The service is personalised, and gathers together energy quotes that are tailored to your needs. ElectricityAndGas.com.au is set to make it effortlessly simple to shop around for electricity and gas quotes. At just the click of a button, we can help you compare a range of energy suppliers and find energy plans that offer value for money.
