      Hi Warren,

      Thanks for leaving a question on finder.

      We’ve provided a comparison of electricity, gas, and solar deals in THIS page so you know what price and structure will suit your needs. Firstly, it’s always useful to have a recent bill from your current provider when comparing energy providers. We do a great job of comparing deals with energy providers, but if you’re already getting a better deal than anything on offer, it’s always good to know you’ve got the option to stick with what you’ve got.
