Mozo’s free online 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.
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.

With summer only days away, many Aussies may have already started gearing up for another scorching three months. And between swapping out your bed sheets and picking up some new shorts, switching energy plans might be another thing to add to your to-do list. But if you’re keen to make the process a little more worthwhile, why not opt for a plan that’s got more than just competitive rates. Whether you’re a rewards lover or are keen to hook up a mate, we’ve rounded up four hot energy offers we think are worth taking a look at.
With summer right around the corner energy retailer Alinta Energy has reduced electricity prices on its HomeDeal plan this week for customers in New South Wales and Victoria. New South Wales residents within the Ausgrid distribution zone could see reductions of up to 25% off the reference price*, while Victorians in the CitiPower distribution area can expect to see rates reduced by up to 19% off the reference price.** A quick recap: the energy reference price refers to the Default Market Offer (DMO) and is a price cap on what energy retailers can charge on standing offers. Victoria offers the same, however it is recognised as the Victorian Default Offer (VDO). According to Alinta Energy’s general manager of sales and marketing Jane Mills, the decision to reduce prices is a response to record low wholesale electricity prices. “We’re in an environment where wholesale electricity prices are falling and we are going to compete hard for customers off the back of that,” she said. “Our new HomeDeal rates are available to new customers signing up via web or phone or to existing customers who would like to review their plan via phone.” Aside from newly discounted rates, the HomeDeal energy plan features no lock in contracts or exit fees, flexible payment options and access to Reward Shop discounts. Alinta has also slashed rates on their BusinessDeal plan for small business customers, cutting electricity rates of up to 26% off the reference price in NSW (Ausgrid distribution zone) and up to 15% off the VDO price in VIC (CitiPower distribution zone). The retailer has also launched small business gas products across NSW, SA and SE-QLD, with Victoria soon to follow on 14 December, 2020.

In an effort to keep households on top of their energy bills and improve the energy efficiency for the state, the Victorian government yesterday unveiled a $797 million energy package. Almost one million Victorians will receive a one-off $250 payment to help pay for their energy bills. Those that are eligible for the payment include concession card holders, anyone receiving JobSeeker, youth allowance or the pension. According to Energy Minister, Lily D'Ambrosio, this package is the “biggest household energy efficiency package in any state's history.”"It will make a significant difference to people's power bills, it will put money back into the pockets of Victorians, it will create thousands of jobs and, of course, reduce our emissions," she said.The $250 payment will be available online from 1 February to 31 January 2022.
In August, the Australian Energy Regulator (AER) announced that wholesale electricity prices were at their lowest point in years. Flash forward to November and the latest AER Wholesale Markets Quarterly Report shows that this is still the case across the nation. The report found that not only have wholesale energy prices continued to fall but the average prices were below $55 per MWh in all regions. To put that into perspective, the report found that the average price in Queensland was $34 per MWh and $54 per MWh in Victoria. In August, those prices were $56 and $84, respectively. “COVID-19 continues to impact households and businesses, so any reduction in energy prices across eastern Australia is welcome relief for many Australians,” said Energy Minister, Angus Taylor. “Cheaper energy brings benefits across the Australian economy, which is why the Government will continue to take strong action to bring down the cost of energy for all Australians.”
Increasingly Aussie households are playing a role in reducing our nation’s carbon footprint and the numbers support this.According to Origin Energy 44% of Aussies made the switch over to solar power to reduce their own greenhouse gas emissions, while 65% said their motivation was to reduce their reliance on buying electricity from the grid. And the good news is, installing solar panels has many other benefits besides supporting a cleaner future.The retailer found that reducing a household’s energy bill was the biggest motivation (90%) for installing solar panels, with a whopping 92% of Aussies feeling extremely or very satisfied with the energy bill savings their panels have produced. Half of Aussies who had solar panels installed also feel less guilty about running their heating and cooling appliances.
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.
