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.

If you’ve been thinking about taking the plunge and investing in a solar panel system, you might have been holding out for the perfect time to get started. With spring well and truly here, it won’t take long for things to start heating up and for our air conditioners to get a serious workout. It might surprise you to know that spring is one of the best times of the year to install solar panels, as it can help us prepare for the hottest time of the year. Still need some convincing? Check out our top four reasons below!
Covid-19 has seen many Aussie households experience financial stress like never before, but with the help of a new innovative platform many are getting the support they need. It’s called Deferit, a bill payment platform that helps people pay their bills on time and avoid any late payment fees or stress. Aussies who are struggling to pay their energy bills on time can sign up to the platform, upload their bill and Deferit will pay the bill immediately on the customer’s behalf. The customer will then have to pay the cost back in four equal installments. Deferit works just like Netflix, where users are only charged a monthly fee of $5.99 when they use the service. There’s no interest or any other fees charged during the process and, according to Defetit, there is no comparable product on the Australian market.
Whether it’s to save on expenses or to have some company, having a roommate is one of the most common ways to live across the country. But sometimes different routines and habits can clash, even when it comes to energy consumption or conservation. According to new research by Origin Energy, 63% of Aussies who live in shared accommodation believe they could be doing more to reduce their energy consumption. Aussies living with their partner were reportedly more mindful of their energy use, with 84% noting cost as their main motivator for wanting to cut down on their energy use. However, despite the good intentions, 29% felt that their housemates aren’t good at conserving their energy use and are using it excessively. “Having a roommate can teach us how to have difficult conversations, from splitting bills to sharing space. So if you’re looking to save on your energy bill and feel as though your roommate could be doing better with their usage, it might be time to sit down and have an honest chat,” said Mozo Director, Kirsty Lamont. “Getting on the same page could involve brainstorming areas where you can cut back, like the laundry or heating.”
Yesterday, the Queensland government announced it would be introducing a $50 electricity bill credit for households, due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The $50 credit will be added onto a customer’s next electricity bill and is expected to reach two million Queensland homeowners, tenants and customers who receive an electricity bill from their landlord. Queensland Energy Minister, Dr Anthony Lynham has also confirmed that another $50 credit will be distributed in 2021.According to Lyhnam, the government’s ability to provide these credits is a result of the dividends from publicly-owned power assets. “Queensland has the energy trifecta: lowest average prices on the eastern seaboard, reliable supply and a planned transition to a renewable future,” he said.“Unlike other states, the dividends from our publicly-owned companies flow not to multinational shareholders overseas, but to Queensland families across the state.”This power bill relief package is the second to come out due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Earlier this year, the QLD government announced it would be releasing a $300 million relief package, providing utility bill credits of up to $200 to households.
Driving around in an electric vehicle (EV) might seem like a long shot for many Aussies because of the pricetag. But thanks to a brand new service from AGL, taking an EV out for a spin has just become a bit more feasible. The energy giant will today be piloting its AGL Next Electric Vehicle Subscription Service. AGL Next is the retailer's new initiative for test driving new programs, technology and partnerships for energy and more. In order to provide the EV Subscription Service, AGL has partnered with car subscription service, Carbar and EV charging supplier, JET Charge. According to AGL, this service is the first of its kind to be offered in Australia. “The market for EVs in Australia is continuing to grow but we know many customers may still be reluctant to buy an EV outright due to price, concerns about technological change or access to charging facilities,” said AGL executive general manager Future Business & Technology, John Chambers.“AGL’s EV Subscription Service eliminates these concerns allowing customers to access the latest technology as it hits the market.”Those who are eligible for the EV Subscription Service will have access to a range of leading EV brands, such as Tesla, Jaguar, Hyundai and Nissan. “It’s a convenient option, with the latest EV model delivered to the customer’s home and at-home charging facilities installed but with the flexibility to swap, upgrade or cancel the service at any time.“We know customers are becoming more attuned with subscription services which provide all the benefits but none of the hassle - this is the Netflix of electric vehicles.”
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.
