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.

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!
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.

Although the Covid-19 pandemic may have put a damper on potential international travel, it hasn’t slowed down Aussies from reaching their green energy goals. Research from solar analytics group, SunWiz finds that Aussie households had more than 31,000 solar energy batteries installed in 2020, an increase of 20% from 2019. What’s more impressive is that sub-100W solar panel installations have grown by 39% year-on-year. “In 2020 Australians continued to demonstrate a desire to reduce their power bills by making the most of the nation’s abundant and cheap solar power and empower themselves with a battery,” said SunWiz managing director, Warwick Johnston. “It was a surprisingly good year.”Unsurprisingly, South Australia led the way for solar battery installations, with just over a quarter of installations occurring in that state. According to Johnston, this influx may be linked to the state’s solar battery subsidy program. “There is such high demand from [South Australian] homeowners that the state government had to reduce its subsidy to avoid overheating the market and exhausting available government funds too quickly,” he said. SunWiz estimates that the uptake for solar batteries will continue to soar, with the analytics group forecasting an additional 33,000 installations this year alone.
Following new legislation introduced last week, Victoria is about to become the first state in Australia to impose a tax on electric vehicles (EVs) and other zero-emission vehicles. The new tax is set to come into effect on July 1 and will cost EV owners 2.5 cents per kilometre and two cents per kilometre for hybrid vehicles. It’s estimated that the total cost for EV owners will be up to $300 every year at registration time. Victorian Treasurer, Tim Pallas explained that the decision to introduce the tax on EVs was to ensure that all Victorian drivers were treated equally while creating a sustainable road network. "We are providing confidence to new electric vehicle owners with a massive boost to our charging network, funded by the distance-based charge, which will reduce range anxiety as a key barrier to take-up," he said.However, not everyone is on board with the new initiative, Greens MP, Sam Hibbins said the argument for the EV tax was not justifiable and was nothing more than a “tax grab by the government”.
According to new analysis from the Climate Council, it’s clear that gas power is slowly starting to be phased out from the National Energy Market (NEM). The non-profit organisation found that output from gas generators fell to rock bottom levels over the past summer, reaching only a total of 5% of the market share. They believe that this was due to wind and solar power breaking records of their own, surging to new heights of generation. “Our existing gas power stations are struggling to compete with clean, reliable and affordable renewable energy and storage. Australia does not need any new gas,” said Climate Council senior researcher, Tim Baxter. “Gas is a polluting and expensive fossil fuel that’s on the way out and has no role to play in our economic recovery. It’s driving up household power prices, and prices for our manufacturing industries, putting the sector at risk.” The last time gas peaked was in Autumn 2014, occupying 13% of the market share, meanwhile, renewable energy has doubled in market share during the same period. During the most recent summer in New South Wales, the market share of renewables hit 26.1%, compared to just 0.9% for gas. These figures were even more impressive in Victoria, with the renewables’ market share claiming 29.5%, compared to a mere 0.5% for gas. “As the sunniest and one of the windiest places on the planet, Australia should be cashing-in on its renewable advantage, and in doing so, rapidly reducing greenhouse gas emissions. It’s a win-win,” said Baxter.
Since its inception in Byron Bay following protests against coal seam gas fracking, Enova has rolled out services all over New South Wales and to date has almost 10,000 customers. Now the community-owned energy provider has extended its services to residents in South East Queensland.
Almost a year on from the nationwide Covid-19 lockdown and Aussie households seem to have gotten back to their regular routine. But one thing that might not have bounced back to normal is our energy bills. According to bill payment platform Deferit, New South Wales, Tasmania and the Northern Territory all had a 10% - 20% increase in the dollar amount of energy bills paid in the last year. Founded in 2018, Deferit is an innovative bill payment platform that allows Aussies to guarantee their bills are paid on time. Users upload a bill they are struggling to pay, and Deferit will pay it off immediately on their behalf. Customers can then pay back the cost in four equal interest-free instalments, similar to Buy Now Pay Later services. There are no late fees; however, customers will need to pay a fixed monthly fee of $5.99. Deferit co-founder and chief executive officer Jonty Hirsowitz says the rise in energy costs has seen many Aussies flock to the payment platform to keep their living expenses on track. Interestingly, the payment service found that 77% of energy bills uploaded are paid on or ahead of time.“We have seen over 150% year on year growth since February last year - so throughout the Covid-19 period,” he said. “That said, we actually found that users had access to more funds than usual as a result of the various government subsidies and access to superannuation.”Hirsowitz says that energy bills are the most common bill type paid off, with over 30,000 energy bills being paid over the past 12 months. The average energy bill amount being paid on time is $250 and $467 for an overdue bill. “It's essentially like bill smoothing meeting bill extensions at the click of a button. An average Deferit consumer will upload three bills per month and spread their payments back to us across the remainder of the month according to their income and other household expenses,” says Hirsowitz.
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.
