A high electricity bill can sometimes be a head scratcher - especially when your power use hasn't really changed. So what's the culprit? It's likely that old electricity plan that you're on, which means it's time to compare. Our electricity comparison service is designed to help you find the latest market offers and more.

The most popular brands below are based on data from an Australian Energy Regulator Annual report (2019-20). Keep in mind that the most popular brand may not always be the best for you, and you're encouraged to compare for yourself to find one that works for you.

Compare electricity prices

Note: To get rates for 'time of use' plans you will need to enter your bill details in the form above.

Confused? Finder's Managing Editor Kate Browne has explained the process of comparing plans in a handy video below.

Based on the AER annual model usage in the Ausgrid network, the AER reference price is $1,393 / year.

From 1 July 2021, residential demand charges will be introduced for some customers to encourage households to use less electricity during peak demand times. If applicable, demand charges are billed monthly based on your highest demand for electricity in kilowatts (kWh) typically during a 30 or 60 minute period of the preceding month. Whether you receive a demand charge will depend on the electricity network region, your retailer and your electricity usage during peak demand times. The pricing in our tables do not currently account for demand charges. For more information about demand charges, please speak to your electricity retailer.
