How to compare and find the best electricity plan in Queensland

When looking to find the best electricity plan in Queensland it's important to consider a few factors such as:

  • Cost. Consider if you're getting the best value for your money. The cheapest plan may not be the best electricity plan for you.
  • Variable vs fixed rates plans. The cost of your electricity on a variable rate plan isn't locked in so the cheapest priced energy plan one day may not be the cheapest priced plan in a month's time. While less widely available a fixed-rate energy plan will include a guarantee that your usage charge is locked for 12 months. Fixed rate plans are typically a little more expensive but you're protected from price volatility.
  • Discounts and other bonuses. Look out for bonus credits, reward points and other offers which might sweeten the deal.
  • Customer service. If being able to check your bills easily online or via a mobile phone app is important to you take a look at the customer service each retailer provides. Some retailers offer options for a monthly payment if you prefer that instead of quarterly payments.
  • Hidden fees. Some retailers charge a high disconnection fee if you move house. If you're a renter it could be good to check this before you sign up.
