Who has the cheapest electricity plans in your state?

By Ceyda Erem ·

According to the results of Mozo’s 2017 Experts Choice Residential Electricity Awards, using the wrong energy provider is costing Aussie households thousands of dollars annually.

Mozo’s money experts compared 274 energy products across 27 providers across the country and found that the best value plans for each state with deregulated electricity markets varied dramatically, a timely reminder why it’s so important to shop around when comparing plans and energy retailers.  

“No matter where you live in the country right now, high energy prices are causing strain on family budgets,” said Mozo Director, Kirsty Lamont. “We found the difference between the cheapest and most expensive plan in Victoria is over $2000 a year, which is massive.”

“It goes to show why things like our Experts Choice Awards, which cut through the marketing jargon are so important to help consumers make smarter choices,” she said.
