Mozo’s energy comparison tool is free to use and let’s you compare your existing energy bill with some of the plans that are currently available to new customers from a range of energy providers. You’ll get to see cost estimates of each energy plan so that you can compare them side by side and make the best choice for your home.
While switching energy plans is one of the best ways to save money, Mozo has a team of energy experts who spend their time researching and reporting on energy market innovations and energy price updates as well as writing energy guides and energy savings tips to help you reduce your power and gas bills.
The good news is that even if you don’t have a recent energy bill handy you can still use our comparison tool and get energy bill price estimates for your postcode. We ask you a range of questions to get a quick indication of how much energy you use such as: number of people in your house, where you live, if you have solar panels.
If you find an energy plan on our site that you are interested in, you’ll be able to switch plans directly from our site. In order to switch, additional information you’ll need includes: your personal details, exact property address, your meter number or NMI (this can be found on your bill).
We compare residential electricity and gas plans in most Australian states where there is a deregulated energy market. This includes Canberra, New South Wales, South Australia, South East Queensland and Victoria. 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.
We do not compare energy providers in the Northern Territory, Tasmania or Western Australia at this time but rest assured, as soon as the market is deregulated in these regions, Mozo will be there to help you compare energy plans and save.
While our site and database includes information on more than 30 energy providers, we do not compare every available energy plan in the market. Our comparison tool allows you to compare plan prices that are currently available for new customers from a range of leading energy brands. You could be on a plan that is cheaper than the ones that are now available.

Mozo compares energy plans from a range of leading energy providers around the country to help you find gas and electricity plans available in your area. Comparing energy providers and plans is one of the best ways to save money on rising gas and electricity bills. With our Energy Cost Cruncher Calculator tool, it is now easier than ever to find out how much you could save by switching energy providers.
Energy providers often change their pricing and plans, so if you’ve never compared your provider before, chances are there is a much better deal out there! Your energy costs are due to a combination of factors, such as where you live, your usage charges and your plan options. We help you compare energy prices in minutes so you can find and switch deals in your area. The exact number of energy providers that you can choose from will depend on where you live, as different providers service different areas within Australia.
To find a cheap energy plan in your area, enter your postcode and a few other details about your household size and usage so that we can compare deals available near you from the energy providers we compare as part of our service.
Gas and electricity prices vary by region so by telling us where you are, we can look up which providers in our database service your area. If you have a recent bill handy, you will be able to improve the accuracy of your results by entering your actual usage. If you find an energy deal that suits you best, you can apply directly via our service. We'll even notify your old provider that you're switching so you don't have to.
Your energy costs will depend on a number of factors ranging from the energy plan that you choose, the appliances that you have in your home and your energy use habits.
Heating and cooling your home is the biggest portion of household energy use so if you are looking to reduce your bill you can investigate ways to help improve the energy efficiency of your home. Things like adding blinds or curtains, making sure that windows and doors are well insulated and keeping heaters and air conditioners at moderate temperatures will all help to lower the usage.
One other tactic that might be available to you, depending on where you live, is to take advantage of off-peak times when the electricity rates are lower. Things like putting on the dishwasher or washing machine on at night rather than during the day can all help to reduce your costs.

I rent, can I switch energy plans?
If you are renting and the energy bills are in your name, you'll be able to choose your energy provider. If your electricity and gas is included with your rent, your landlord will be responsible for the electricity plan at the property.
Yes, our database contains providers that source their energy from renewable sources such as solar, wind and hydro electricity. Our results will detail what percentage of energy is sourced from renewable sources for each plan.
We compare plans that are available in your area if you have solar panels already installed, but 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 energy cost comparison tool, we’ve got a range of information on our site from helpful energy 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!

Over the past year plenty of Australians have spent more time at home than ever before. But more time in the house has meant more heating, more air conditioning, more cooking and certainly more Netflix.
Although we may be days away from the official start of winter, the recent chill hasn’t stopped many Aussies from dusting off their heaters and pulling out their favourite knitted jumpers. Unfortunately, one thing households aren’t always prepared for is a higher than normal energy bill, as winter is one season where our electricity and gas usage typically jumps. The good news is there’s still time for households to get ahead this winter and switch to a better value energy plan before the dreaded July 1 price hike. But where do you start? Comparing energy plans can be a tricky task, especially if it’s been a while since you last shopped around. But if Mozo analysis is anything to go by, it’s well worth the hustle in the long run.According to our 2020 Energy Report, depending on the distribution zone, Aussie households have the potential to save between $200 - $300 a year on their annual energy bill just by making the switch from the average to the cheapest energy plan. There are a number of things you’ll want to consider when comparing energy plans, like whether you prefer to sign up for a contract or a no-contract deal. Opting for the latter can provide more flexibility in terms of switching, while a contract energy plan can give you the chance to lock in prices for a fixed time period. Other features you might want to compare are any fees or whether the retailer offers GreenPower options. With a GreenPower plan, the retailer vows to purchase the equivalent amount of electricity you have nominated, which can range between 10% - 100%, from clean energy sources, like solar, wind or hydro.
Between changes to home ownership and increases to superannuation, it’s been a big week for finance news. But things have also perked up within the energy sector, with the Federal Government unveiling a $1.6 billion plan as a part of the 2021 Budget. Over the next four years, the government will primarily focus on low-emissions technologies, allocating $635 million to this cause. Some of those investments will include building renewable energy microgrids in remote areas in the Northern Territory and Northern Queensland.“Our 2021-22 Budget measures will provide reliable, secure and affordable energy to all Australians, and increase investment in technology solutions to reduce emissions in a way that supports jobs and economic growth,” said Minister for Energy and Emissions Reduction, Angus Taylor. “This Budget builds on the Government’s existing initiatives to guarantee reliable and affordable energy, stimulate jobs and reduce emissions without imposing new costs on households, businesses or the economy.”An additional $25 million will be allocated to assist new gas generators with making the transition to hydrogen. However, many critics have argued that the Budget overlooks necessary funding for network upgrades, which is argued to be essential for the future of electricity stability and reliability. “If this truly is the infrastructure budget, Infrastructure Australia has identified that there is a need for major transmission upgrades to supply network access to renewable energy zones as a high priority, particularly in light of retiring thermal generation,” said Clean Energy Council’s chief executive, Kane Thornton. “It’s disappointing that in a ‘nation-building’ infrastructure budget, upgrades that will enable the access and security of clean, low-cost power have not been prioritised.”
In an effort to transform Victorian roads, the Victorian government has announced it will be offering 20,000 subsidies of up to $3,000 for the purchase of new electric vehicles (EVs) under $69,000. The new initiative is a part of the government’s plan to have half of all new cars sold in Victoria emission-free by 2030. The first 4,000 subsidies were made available on 2 May 2021. “When people get an EV (electric vehicle) they are starting to save significant dollars off their bills," climate change minister, Lily D 'Ambrosio told the ABC."It's almost up to $1,600 that is saved off fuel and maintenance costs, each and every year, so we want to make it easier for Victorians.''In addition to the subsidies, the VIC government also plans to spend $19 million on new charging stations and an extra $10 million on government EVs, which it hopes will amount to more than 400 EVs over the next two years."This is very, very ambitious but [a plan] we are absolutely committed to achieving,” said D'Ambrosio.
Back in March, the Australian Energy Regulator (AER) suggested that Aussies with rooftop solar who export excess electricity to the grid be charged a cost for doing so. They said this new rule could help the electricity grid cope with large influxes of renewable energy generation brought on by rooftop solar. "The poles and wires businesses were set up to get electricity from a big generator, like a coal plant or a gas plant, down those wires and into your house," said AEMC chief executive, Benn Barr. "That change we've seen over the last 10,15 years is a two-way flow … now power is not just going to your house, but power is coming from your house. The system hasn't been set up to deal with that.Barr argued that the prices would be flexible and be left up to power companies to determine, however, Aussies will still be able to earn cash by exporting electricity when required. "We've modelled different charges from $10 to $100, depending upon the size of your solar system," Barr added. "You get a good return from solar. And it's not going to make it uneconomical for customers to put it on their roof.” However, not everyone is on board with the idea. Professor at Victoria University, Bruce Mountain told ABC’s 7:30 program that this measure would decrease a household’s income received for exporting solar by 80%. This could also see fewer Aussies interested in making the switch to solar power. It’s no secret that Aussies are big fans of solar power, with recent research from the Clean Energy Regulator found that as of 31 December 2020, more than 2.66 million households have had a solar system installed. But could a proposed tax forecast a dive in solar uptake amongst Aussie households? "Essentially, they will get the equivalent of a hamburger a year as their income from rooftop solar sales,” Mountain told 7.30. “I think that's very likely to bring pressure in the rooftop solar market, and customers will be less interested in it.” It’s unclear whether this proposed change will go ahead. But if you’d like to learn more about how solar power can benefit the environment and your wallet, have a read of our solar power guide.
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.
