Best electricity and gas providers in Tasmania

We've narrowed down the top 3 electricity providers in Tasmania based on price, how many customers the companies have, and what percentage of those customers have made complaints.

However, there are 2 gas providers - Aurora Gas and Tas Gas - in the state offering similar services and price, the option between comes down to personal preference.

  • Good to remember. The term 'best' is subjective and will likely differ from person to person.

Best electricity provider in Tasmania

Energy Locals, CovaU and 1st Energy came out on top as our best picks for electricity providers in TAS.

Energy Locals and CovaU were almost neck to neck in terms of price but the former took first place for being more popular with customers in the state. Energy Locals has significantly higher customers but lost either of the top 2 spots as it proposed a higher plan price.

Who is the cheapest electricity and gas provider in Tas?

Sometimes all you care about is finding the cheapest provider to save on your bills. We analysed the monthly price estimates for electricity providers in Tas to help you narrow down your choice.

It's also good to remember that Aurora Gas and Tas Gas are the only 2 providers that offer gas to customers in the state. Both have similar price points so deciding between the 2 will come down to personal preference.

  • Good to know: While Tasmania doesn't have a set reference price like other states do, there are few enough providers that you can compare them easily to find a good deal.

How much can I save by switching energy plans?

There are 2 main situations where you can likely save by switching:

  • You're on a standing offer. If you have been on a plan for over a year or moved properties recently, you could be on a standing offer. The most recent research indicates that you could save between $180 and $300 by switching from standing to market offer.
  • You haven't compared recently. For those already on market offers, there's a great chance that there's a cheaper offer available. Switching in this case can still save you on your bill.

Regardless, if you start comparing available plans you'll quickly see what you can save.
