If you’re looking to get a better deal on your energy, you’ve come to the right place. Mozo makes it easier than ever to compare energy plans in your local area and find out how much you can save by switching.

Whether you are looking to compare electricity plans or gas plans, our service can help you to find the cheapest energy package or best choice of plans in your area based on your consumption patterns and preferences.

How to compare energy prices

Mozo compares energy plans from 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. There's no need to speak with someone as our service is 100% online. We'll even notify your old provider that you're switching so you don't have to. 

Saving on energy

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. 

Average Australian Home Energy Use

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.  

Does Mozo compare energy in every Australian state?

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.

Energy Comparison FAQs 

What is Mozo?

Mozo is a free comparison website that helps Australians save money on their everyday finances.

We launched in 2008 and first made our name by demystifying retail banking and helping Australians get better deals on home loans, credit cards, savings and other financial products. Now, we've expanded to the energy market to help Australian consumers make better, more informed choices regarding their gas and electricity services.

How is Mozo different to other energy comparison sites?

Mozo is here to help you save time and money. Why use us for your energy comparison?

  • Get instant price estimates: You want cheaper energy bills right? On Mozo you can instantly see the average price estimates for your postcode and dial up the accuracy of your comparison by entering more info about your energy usage.
  • 100% online: With Mozo, you can switch energy plans anytime of the day or night. You don't have to speak with anyone as our service is 100% online from start to finish. You'll be able to apply for your new energy plan directly from our site and we'll even take care of notifying your old provider.
  • Read customer reviews before switching: Often the cheapest price isn’t always what you’re looking for in your energy provider. Mozo publishes energy provider reviews on our site so that you can see what other customers are saying before signing up.
  • Expert articles and guides: Mozo has a team of energy subject matter experts who spend their days digging through energy plan terms and conditions, crunching tariffs and reporting on energy news and savings hacks to help you.

I want a cheap energy plan. How can I compare energy prices?

There is just one question between you and finding out if there is a cheaper energy deal available for you. All we need is your postcode and we can tell you the average price estimates for your home.

Compare energy plans in:

How accurate are the results?

The more info about your energy usage you give us, the more accurate your results will be. The initial results will be based on your suburb’s average usage but you can dial up the accuracy of your results by entering additional information about your household and current energy usage.

To get the most accurate price comparison you will need a copy of your most recent energy bill so that you can enter in details of your current plan cost and household energy usage.

Do the price estimates include discounts?

Yes, we can include discounts in price estimates. You can filter your search to show you results with or without discounts such as pay on time discounts, direct debit discounts and other discounts such as pensioner concessions.

What if I am moving and don’t have a recent energy bill?

We can still give you an estimate of the energy costs based on the average in your area for your household size and ability to make use of offers like pay on time discounts.

Simply enter the postcode or suburb where you will be moving to and start comparing plans.

Do you compare renewable energy plans?

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.

Do you compare solar plans?

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.

Where can I learn about saving energy and lowering my usage?

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.

How does Mozo make money?

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.
