If you are looking to save money on your electricity bill or moving house and want to compare electricity providers, Mozo can help. We’ve created an energy comparison service to make it easier than ever to find a cheap electricity plan and save.
All you have to do is tell us a few details about your household and our comparison technology does the rest. You’ll get an instant list of results showing a range of electricity providers, electricity plans and cost estimates in your area and find out how much you could save by switching. If you’re after a cheap gas or dual fuel deal, we can give you price quotes for this service as well, just select this option on the form.
Mozo’s electricity comparison service ranks plans from a range of leading energy providers so that you can compare the cost of each plan and determine the best option for you.
If you want to pay less on your gas and electricity bill, then one of the best ways to do this is by switching. Your electricity bill is calculated by a combination of factors, such as where your property is located, usage charges and your electricity plan options. The specific number of energy providers that you can choose from will depend on where you live, as different electricity providers service different locations in Australia.
To get the most accurate electricity price estimates using our electricity comparison tool we recommend that you have a recent electricity bill handy. By entering your actual usage you will be able to compare electricity plans and get accurate estimates of the possible savings you’ll get if you switched providers.
When you’ve found the right electricity deal for your home, you can apply for the plan direct from our site. If you are switching plans there is no need to call your old electricity company, we'll handle everything from setting up your new connection to notifying your old supplier.
Do you scratch your head every time your electricity bill comes along? You’re not the only one. Although understanding how your electricity plan works can be a task in itself, knowing what makes up your bill can help put you on the right path to finding a better deal.
Your electricity bill is split between two charges, one within your control and the other outside of your control, they are:
Next, depending on the type of plan you've signed up to and the type of electricity meter you have, how you are billed for your usage will depend on the tariff attached to the plan. Some of the most common types of electricity tariffs include:
Knowing what kind of tariff you’re on can help you determine whether it is the right option for your household. For instance, if you’re currently on a single rate tariff and aren’t home during peak hours, it might be worth considering opting for a time of use tariff instead.
One of the more trickier parts of finding the best electricity deal for your home is to first understand what kind of plan your household needs. Having your most recent bill nearby when comparing electricity plans can help you do this, as it will give you an insight to what level of usage your household falls under. From there, you’ll be able to compare quotes from different electricity retailers to determine which plan is the best electricity deal for your home.
When comparing electricity plans to find the best deal for your household, there are a number of things to consider, such as:
If you live in a state or territory which has a deregulated electricity market like Canberra, New South Wales, South Australia, South East Queensland and Victoria then you’ll be able to use our service today to compare residential electricity plans. While Tasmania has a deregulated market we do not compare plans there at this time. The number of energy providers that are compared will depend on where your property is located as different energy providers offer their services in different areas.
For now, we do not compare electricity providers in the Northern Territory, Western Australia or regional Queensland but you can rest assured, as soon as the market is deregulated in these regions, Mozo will be there to help you compare electricity plans and save.
While our comparison service covers electricity plans from some of Australia's leading electricity providers, we do not compare every available electricity plan in the market. Our service looks at electricity plans that are currently available for new customers. It’s possible that the electricity plan you are on currently could be cheaper than newer plans that are available now.
For many Australian households, it might make sense to have both your electricity and gas supplied by the same energy provider, also known as a ‘dual fuel’ energy plan. While there is the obvious convenience factor and the possibility of a discount for combining services, opting for a plan like this may not be the cheapest option.
Before signing up to a dual fuel plan, be sure to compare electricity and gas plans separately as you may find the best plan for both comes from separate providers. It’s important to look beyond flashy introductory offers and consider which plan will offer value long term.
Our tool will help you to compare your electricity and gas options for duel fuel households. Our results will detail pricing options if you select the same provider for both or we can also show you options if you want to cherry pick your gas and electricity provider separately.
We’ve kept things simple. On Mozo you can:
In the time it takes you to read this sentence we could be giving you cheap electricity quotes for your home. It really is that simple.
Compare electricity plans in:
The more info about your energy usage you give us, the more accurate your results will be. You can dial up the accuracy of your results by entering additional information about your household and current electricity usage.
Before you start your comparison it is a good idea to have your most recent electricity bill handy.
You can tell us whether you want us to include discounts in your electricity cost estimates by filtering your preferences. We can include discounts for pay on time, direct debits or online billing as well as pensioner concessions.
No problem, we can still give you an estimate of the cheapest electricity plans for your household size and eligibility for conditional offers like pay on time discounts.
Simply enter the postcode or suburb of where you will be moving to and start comparing cheap electricity plans.
Yes, if the electricity bill is in your name you have the right to choose which energy plan and provider you use. If your rent includes electricity or the landlord pays the energy bill, then you won’t be able to switch plans. Read our helpful renter’s guide to switching energy plans if you want more detailed info.
Yes, if choosing your electricity plan based on renewable energy generation is important to you we can show you which plans will best suit you. Many providers give you the option to source your electricity from renewable sources such as solar, wind or hydro. Our results will detail what percentage of energy is sourced from renewable sources for each plan.
If you already have solar panels installed at your property we can detail the plans that allow for solar but our cost calculations will not include any feed in tariff rebates. You will need to calculate this independently.
If you are looking to install new solar panels and are wondering how much you will save, we can’t help at this time. We suggest you check out the Clean Energy Council website which has a free guide to buying and installing solar panels.
The reference price is a benchmark electricity price for NSW, SA and south-east QLD, set by the government, used to make comparison prices between providers and plans easier for customers. The reference price indicates how much a representative customer would pay on a single-rate tariff on a default price set by the regulator.
The Default Market Offer (DMO) is a price cap imposed by the AER that energy retailers must abide by. It is adjusted yearly, to ensure it stays in line with changes in the energy market. The DMO also replaced standing offers. The term is often used interchangeably with reference price as the DMO is what this refers to.
In addition to our electricity cost comparison tool, we’ve got a range of information on our site from helpful electricity guides to energy saving tips. If there is something you’d particularly like us to cover, get in touch with us here.
Mozo makes money by helping energy providers connect with customers, like you, who are looking for a great energy deal. Most importantly our service is totally free to use and it is the energy providers competing for your business that pay Mozo, not you!
Mozo shares a fee with our partner, CIMET, who helps provide this service. This fee is paid when you complete an application and switch energy providers using our service. Mozo may also earn revenue when energy providers purchase display advertising on our site or when we help them use the all the great data we’ve collected.

It took them over 6 weeks to transfer me (inc 10 day cooling off). In which time it was difficult to communicate as they don’t have a phone number. I feel like they don’t value me as a customer, as my requests were not responded to in a timely way. Also, I was misled when signing up that the process would complete in 2 weeks. I will see how it goes over the next few months.Read full review

A new report from the Climate Council has seen Australia ranked worst in the developed world for climate action and fossil fuel use. Despite a shift towards cleaner energy, Australia has left things until too late to make a difference, the report finds.
While Australia still includes fossil fuels in its energy mix, renewable energy sources are on the rise. And it seems Australian consumers are following the industry’s lead, with our nation remaining a global leader in uptake of solar power system installation, according to the CSIRO.
With Aussies spending more time at home than ever before thanks to pandemic restrictions, you might’ve seen a recent spike in your energy bills. This means finding a competitive energy deal is all the more crucial.
The New South Wales government has announced a new green hydrogen plan that will offer $3 billion in incentives and look to attract over $80 billion in investments, as the state continues the push towards more renewable energy and reduced emissions.
The Northern Territory has announced a new plan that will help it achieve 50% renewable energy share and a 50% reduction in emissions by 2030. The new plan follows similar emissions reduction targets implemented in NSW and the ACT in recent weeks.
As we know, the COVID-19 lockdown began in early March, which saw many Aussies having to adjust to work life from the comfort of their couch or unfortunately, experience financial hardship for the very first time.
As Aussies across the country ease themselves back into work following the Christmas break, the Victorian government has been well ahead of the game, announcing its decision for the Victorian Default Offer (VDO).
While the winter chill is certain to send shivers up the spines of many Aussies, the dreaded July 1 energy price update may have a similar effect.
