How to compare electricity providers in NSW?

contract icon

Reference price

Each electricity plan that you compare will come with an annual estimate. The figure is also benchmarked against the reference price the energy watchdog sets annually. You should always aim for a plan lower than the reference price. The difference will be displayed as a percentage to make it easy to compare electricity plans.

bills payment icon

Usage rate and supply charge

Besides the annual estimate and reference price, you can also compare plans by looking at the usage rate and supply charge. Usage rates determine how much you'll pay for each unit of energy that's consumed. Supply charges are what you pay daily for being connected to the energy grid.

perks icon

Features and additional costs

When comparing plans, it pays to look at other things besides the annual estimate. Look out for signup deals such as discounts and rewards points plus additional features such as a mobile app to track your energy usage. Make sure you read the T&Cs for additional charges such as credit card fees or late payment charges.

electricity rebates icon

Rebates and concessions

Rebates and concessions are a great way to save on electricity bills. They're mostly directed towards low-income households, pensioners and those with medical needs but of course, exceptions do apply. You can have a look at rebates available in NSW in our guide or, simply contact your energy provider to find out if you're eligible for any.

Adelaide Moore

When I was looking for a energy provider before moving into my new home I was curious to see if there were features and benefits I could compare between providers alongside the general price and rates. Turns out there are quite a lot of added benefits to consider. I ended up going with Red Energy as they offered bonus Qantas Frequent Flyer points upon sign-up and 2 points for every dollar spent on my bill. I love collecting Qantas points so this was a great option for me
