New Comparison Service Helps Aussies Save Big on Energy Plans

Aussie families are under the pump like never before. The cost of housing, fuel and groceries all seem to be increasing by the day. To make matters worse, July 2019 saw a general trend of retailers decreasing their supply charges, but increasing the prices customers pay for electricity usage. A recent study found that retailers have increased rates by as much as 57% between June and July 2019.*

New comparison service ElectricityandGas.com.au is shaking up the energy industry by offering consumers the power to compare gas and electricity providers, saving them time and money as they make informed choices about their family’s energy spend.

The service comes as a relief to many Australians who are feeling the squeeze with their household budget. Don’t assume that prices are under control now that the government is focusing on reducing the amount households pay for power.** You could still be paying more than you need to be by sticking with one supplier and missing out on the competition that allows consumers to find a fair deal, no matter who’s in power.

Here’s How You Do It:

Step 1: Select your State below.
Step 2: After answering a few questions, you will have the opportunity to compare quotes in your area and could be eligible for significant savings.

“The constant energy rate rises we’ve seen over the past year are putting household budgets under more stress than ever before,” says Founder Jonathan Leane. “We’ve designed ElectricityandGas.com.au to simplify the comparison process and put the power back in the hands of the customer.”

Using the service, Australians can compare multiple energy and gas providers and their pricing all in the one place. The service saves time, but the biggest benefit for most are the dollar savings. The comparison service helps you find the best energy package deals on the market and see how it compares to other available offers.

It’s all personalised too. When you first arrive at ElectricityandGas.com.au you’ll be asked for some basic details like your home state and suburb. Then we search our database of local energy companies to bring you the very best of what’s on offer, with options targeted to your needs so you can make an informed choice.

Since launching, thousands of Australians have already jumped on board. Over 30,000 Australians used ElectricityandGas.com.au to compare energy packages last month, citing saving money as their number one reason for using the site.

ElectricityandGas.com.au is a trusted online service that makes comparison shopping for electricity and gas packages easy. With the click of a button, you too can quickly search for home energy packages that are at the right price for you and your family.
