Will I save on my bill by switching energy plans?

Let's assume you signed up to an energy plan over a year ago. Most discounts or benefit periods last 12 months. After that you're put on a standing offer as opposed to a market offer. The same can happen when you move house.

Fortunately, this is easy enough to action.

According to the latest research, you could save between $180 and $300 annually if you switched from a standing to market offer.

All you need to do is start comparing energy plans available to you in your area.

Do I qualify for any energy rebates available in NSW?

Rebates can either be a flat sum or a percentage of your total energy bill. In order to be eligible for a rebate, you'll need to meet a certain requirement such as holding a valid concession card.
Here's a breakdown of what energy rebates are available to you in NSW.

Tag discount

Family Energy Rebate

The Family Energy Rebate helps households who have dependent children and receive the Family Tax Benefit payment.

Low income house

Low Income Household Rebate

The Low Income Household Rebate provides discounts to pensioners, seniors, veterans or households that struggle to pay their energy bill. The rebate amount varies depending on whether you are an electricity retailer customer or receive supplied energy.

life support

Life Support Rebate

If someone in your home requires the use of energy-intensive life support, you may qualify for an energy rebate.

Medical energy rebate

Medical Energy Rebate

If you or someone in your household experiences a medical condition that prevents the body from effectively regulating its temperature, the Medical Energy Rebate can offset the cost of heating or cooling your home.

gas rebate

NSW Gas Rebate

Similar to the low-income household electricity rebate, the gas rebate provides annual discounts to eligible pensioners, veterans and low-income natural gas and LPG customers. If you use natural gas or liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) for necessities including cooking, heating or hot water, you may be eligible to claim a rebate towards your gas bill.

senior couple

Seniors Energy Rebate

If you're an independent retiree with a Commonwealth Seniors Health Card, you could get a $200 rebate, per year, to help with the cost of living. Keep in mind gas accounts are eligible for the rebate.

      Hi Stephan,

      Thanks for your question.

      You may want to try Origin Energy as they offer LPG gas delivery.

      Alternatively, you may also directly contact and inquire from any of the energy providers we have listed above if they deliver LPG in your area.

      Cheers,
      Anndy

      With the solar rebate ending what type of options available are there for those coming off the current rebate?

      Is Finder organising a special deal for those large numbers with solar power currently receiving the rebate?

      Hi Fresh Mullet,

      Thanks for your question.

      Unfortunately the government has not announced any further rebates. Finder is always working hard to get exclusive deals for our users.

      If you would like to discuss your options, you may want to speak to an energy consultant.

      Cheers,
      Shirley
