New Service Saves Aussies Hundreds Off Energy Plans

Today in Australia there are as many as 2 million households overpaying for energy, simply because they’re stuck on plans that are either too expensive or inappropriate for their situation*.

But less and less people can afford to be overpaying for energy in 2018, because in the last 10 years power prices have skyrocketed by 60%, with a 12% increase coming in the last year alone. Disturbingly, the cut retailers take from a typical power bill has also risen significantly.

Now, the price Australians pay to cover their retailer’s costs is almost double what it costs to generate the energy they actually use**. And because energy companies determine this cost themselves, it’s never been more important to pit the suppliers against each other and choose the best deal for you.

With profit margins for energy suppliers on the rise and everyday Australians never even knowing that they’re overpaying, we make it our business to help you save. Every day we hear from Aussies who are fed up with forking out thousands of their hard-earned dollars for their energy bills. And we know how to help them find a better deal.. In just minutes, our customers find plans that save them an average of $160 each year***.

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.

Energy pricing in Australia has become so unfair that all of Australia’s energy market regulators now recommend that Aussies review their bills every year. This is because energy providers have been able to change rates without informing their customers, and because cheap introductory offers are used to lure people in before they find themselves hit with a big rate hike.

The result? It’s everyday Aussies, trusting that their provider won’t rip them off, who get stuck with the worst rates.

“Market deregulation was supposed to reduce costs and make energy more affordable for everyday Aussies,” says ElectricityandGas.com.au founder Jon Leane. “But the reality that we see is incredible deals for some contrasted with complete rip-offs for others. It’s just not fair for the people stuck with the raw end of the deal.”

“That’s why we started ElectricityandGas.com.au, because, with prices on the rise, we think Aussies deserve the chance to find a better deal. Why should you be paying more for the exact same thing simply because you’re not a market expert?”

With our service, you get access to no-mark up 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.

Just last month almost 40,000 people chose ElectricityandGas.com.au to help them compare, switch and save. Cheaper bills are only a few clicks away. Why not join them?
