Calculating energy plan costs side by side

With so many energy plans in the market, it can be hard to work out how much you'd really save if you switched plans. That's where Mozo's cost cruncher calculator comes in. To get started you'll need to enter your postcode and then answer some questions about your home's energy needs. If you've got an existing bill handy, we'll be able to compare this with some of the other deals on the market right now. 

You'll be able to see price estimates for plans available and even compare plan features side by side so that you know that you're comparing apples with apples. Your energy bill is calculated based on two main aspects: a supply charge and usage. The supply charge is usually a fixed cost. To calculate your usage costs you'll need to know exactly how many KwH of energy your home is consuming. You can usually find this information easily enough on your bill. You'll be able to compare plans from a wide range of energy providers with our service, but we don't compare every energy plan available. We've got information on our site about most energy providers that operate in Australian states where there is a deregulated energy market such as NSW, QLD, SA and VIC

Choosing the best energy plan

The thing about energy plans is that there isn't any one single plan that's best for everyone. Your energy costs will depend on a wide variety of factors including where you live, how many people live at the address, your meter type, your budget, even your stance the environment. Our goal is to help you to find a suitable energy plan based on as many factors as possible. 

Tips to save on energy

If you are looking to cut down the cost of your energy bill there are two main ways that you can do this. The first one is to switch to a cheaper energy plan. Every retailer has different tariffs and plans so shopping around regularly is one of the best ways that you can minimise your energy bill.  The second way that you can cut down on your bill is to reduce your usage and / or the energy efficiency of your home. 

Tips to save on your energy bill


Mozo's team of energy experts spend their days researching and writing about all the latest news and developments in the Australian energy sector and make this information freely available for you to read. Check out our  energy savings hub or head to our energy guides section for more detailed buyers guides on everything from smart meters to battery storage. 

Do I have to pay money to switch energy plans on Mozo? 

Our comparison calculator is free to use and there is no obligation for you to switch plans by using our cost cruncher tool. In most instances, if you are switching from an open market plan you will not have to pay to switch. There are some energy plans that do have exit fees so you should check your existing plan to make sure that you will not be charged a fee.

If you are moving house and you need to connect the electricity and gas service there is usually a fee to do this. This is generally added to your first bill. 

How accurate are the cost estimates? 

The more information you can provide us about your current energy usage the more accurate your quote calculations will be. It is a good idea to have a recent bill handy so that you can enter in your usage and details of your current plan. 

How does Mozo make money?

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.
