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.
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.

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.

Whether it’s laziness or a little knowledge on the subject, the average Aussie isn’t that keen to switch and save on their energy bill - and it’s costing us big time. New research from the St Vincent de Paul Society found that collectively, households are missing out on an eye-watering $500 million in energy savings by not switching to a cheaper deal. In fact, households across Victoria, New South Wales, Queensland and South Australia are paying up to $200 extra for electricity, despite previous news of prices falling. "Wholesale prices have come down significantly and there's also been changes to poles and wires prices," manager of policy and research at St Vincent de Paul Society, Gavin Dufty told the ABC in a recent interview. "That's washed through the electricity market, but we're really concerned that people haven't gone out there and refreshed their electricity accounts so those savings end up in people's pockets and not the pockets of the big multinationals."Dufty explained that there are up to six million Australian households in those four states that are still on expensive contracts with their retailers. Most of these customers were previously on contracts, which have now expired. As a result, the retailer has rolled them onto a default offer, which generally tend to be on the pricier side. "When you start to get price falls, [retailers] don't quickly come back to you and say 'here's all these savings you can have', they like to let you sweat a little bit because that's more money for them,” said Dufty.
We’re sure you already know that having solar power as your electricity source is a great way to save on your energy bills. But given that solar panels can cost thousands, taking that first step can be daunting. If you’re thinking of making the switch to solar, we’re jotted down three ways you can cover the cost, plus their pros and cons.
Any Aussie household can understand the value of switching to solar for their electricity source, and thanks to a new South Australian program selected households will get to experience it for free. Under the new Switch to Solar pilot program, around 1,000 South Australian concession holders will receive a free solar system, replacing the Annual Energy or Cost of Living concession. Households who are recipients of these concessions are given up to a total of $226.67 and $215.10, respectively each year. Meanwhile, this program is set to deliver participants an annual saving of $890 on their energy bill, according to the Marshall Liberal Government.“Our new Switch to Solar pilot is a win-win for everyone,” said Minister for Human Services Michelle Lensink. “Not only is the Government injecting money into the economy and supporting vital jobs through the purchase of 1000 new solar panels, our concession holders will get big bill savings off their energy bills.”The suburbs chosen for this pilot are:
South Australian households doing it tough might be finally getting some energy bill relief, thanks to a new deal negotiated by the Marshall Liberal Government. From 1 January 2021, SA Origin Energy customers who use the SA Concession Energy Discount Offer (SACEDO) will now receive a 21% discount off the electricity reference price, up slightly from 20% previously. According to the Government of South Australia website, customers who take advantage of this offer are set to save an average of $384 a year, depending on their electricity plan. At the moment, more than 64,000 low and fixed income SA households are currently taking up the offer, however the Government is encouraging more than 145,000 eligible households to sign up. “We know that this year has been tough on South Australians, which is why it’s welcome news we can continue to build on electricity savings which are flowing onto our households,” said Minister for Human Services, Michelle Lensik. “In addition to the huge discounts on bills, this special offer boasts a range of other benefits, such as no late payment fees, no exit fees, and flexible payment options - small features that make a big difference.”Aside from the SACEDO offer, SA customers can also apply for the State Government’s annual energy concession of up to $231.41 during the 2020-21 financial year. This means that the total energy bill savings for households could hit $615.41. In order to be eligible for the SACEDO 21% discount offer, customers must:
Almost every Aussie in lockdown last year braced themselves for a higher than normal energy bill. However new research from The Conversation has found that some households in particular fared worse than others. Older Australians who rely on the Age Pension as a source of income have been thrown into what’s called ‘energy poverty’, with many facing energy bills that were up to 50% higher than they were in 2019. In order to keep up with the high costs, many seniors resorted to cutting back on essential and non-essential spending, reduced the number of showers they took and even switched off the heater or air conditioner. This also meant that savings goals and other financial priorities were pushed aside to ensure their electricity bills were paid. “Even though I’m saving some money by not socialising, I can’t save money for potential emergencies as before. With the higher electricity bills and the new medical expenses, my capacity to save [has] reduced a lot,” an interviewee told The Conversation. But unfortunately, energy debt spread well beyond seniors during 2020. Figures from the Australian Energy Regulator (AER) revealed that long-term electricity debt for residential customers jumped to $124.5 million between 31 March 2020 and 2 November 2020. During this period more than 60,000 Australians also chose to defer their energy bills, allowing themselves some time to get back on their feet.
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.
