Meet Australia’s Most Recommended electricity provider
Thursday 28 May 2020
Trustworthy, highly recommended, genuine desire to help - are these words you’d use to describe your electricity provider?
We asked that very question to more than 3,000 Aussies back in March for our 2020 Mozo People’s Choice Electricity Awards.
If you’re new around here, the Mozo People’s Choice Awards allow everyday Aussies to choose their favourite providers from banking to supermarkets.
This year, we asked our respondents to tell us what they really thought about their electricity provider by rating them on a scale from 1 to 10 across a range of factors, like trustworthiness, customer service and customer satisfaction.
“When it comes to household providers, nothing is more valuable to consumers than word of mouth. Our Mozo People’s Choice Awards provide a platform for Australians to acknowledge the providers who tick all the boxes in terms of service,” said Mozo Data Director, AJ Duncanson.
While five electricity retailers were selected as winners, there was one that surpassed all others and was crowned Australia's Most Recommended electricity Provider: Powershop.
“Powershop have consistently been a crowd favourite in our Mozo People’s Choice Awards. Last year alone, they received three awards across a variety of categories,” said Duncanson.
“With sustainability and renewable energy being a major value for many Australian households, it’s not surprising to see one of the country’s greenest retailers take out this top spot.”
