How were the winners found?

In finding the winners, the Mozo Experts Choice judges worked tirelessly comparing 133 products from 27 small business energy retailers in NSW, QLD, the ACT, VIC and SA. The winning providers were rewarded for either their general electricity, solar-friendly, green power or gas plans, and in some cases, for more than one category.

“Whilst the features required to win varied between categories, all of the awards were granted to those providing the cheapest option given the conditions,” said Marshall.

“We run the Energy Awards because we want to make it easier for Australians to find the best value plans possible, and with small businesses often racking up quite the energy bill, we want to help them save where they can.”
