If you are looking to save money on your electricity bill or moving house and want to compare electricity providers, Mozo can help. We’ve created a comprehensive energy comparison service to make it easier than ever to find a cheap electricity plan and save.

You’ll get an instant list of results showing a range of electricity providers, electricity plans and cost estimates in your area and find out how much you could save by switching. If you’re after a cheap gas or dual fuel deal, we can give you price quotes for this service as well, just select this option on the form.

How can I compare electricity prices?

Mozo’s free electricity comparison service allows you to see a range of plans from leading energy providers online. We compare electricity plans from a range of leading electricity providers around Australia to help find you cheap energy plans in your area.

If you want to pay less on your gas and electricity bills, then one of the best ways to do this is by switching. We can help you compare electricity prices in minutes. Mozo’s free comparison tool could help you save hundreds of dollars on your electricity bill each year simply by switching energy providers, or switching to a new plan with your current provider.

Your electricity bill is calculated by a combination of factors, such as where you are located, usage charges and your plan options. The specific number of energy providers that you can choose from will depend on where you live, as different providers service different locations in Australia.

Simply enter some household details in our electricity comparison tool and we'll show you a list of plans from a range of providers that service your area. You will be able to improve the accuracy of your results by entering your actual usage if you have a recent bill handy.

You can also refine the results by selecting a range of options including your preferred payment option and household size. When you’ve found the right electricity deal for your home, you can apply for the plan direct from our site. If you are switching plans there is no need to call your electricity supplier, we'll handle everything from setting up your new connection to notifying your old supplier. 

Does Mozo cover electricity plans in every Australian state?

Electricity Price Regulation Australia


If you live in a state or territory which has a deregulated electricity market like Canberra, New South Wales, South Australia, South East Queensland and Victoria then you’ll be able to use our service today to compare residential electricity plans. While Tasmania has a deregulated market we do not compare plans there at this time. 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.

For now, we do not compare electricity providers in the Northern Territory, Western Australia or regional Queensland but you can rest assured, as soon as the market is deregulated in these regions, Mozo will be there to help you compare electricity plans and save.

While our comparison service covers electricity plans from some of Australia's leading electricity providers, we do not compare every available electricity plan in the market. Our service looks at electricity plans that are currently available for new customers. It’s possible that the electricity plan you are on currently could be cheaper than newer plans that are available now.

How accurate are the results?

The more info about your energy usage you give us, the more accurate your results will be. You can dial up the accuracy of your results by entering additional information about your household and current electricity usage.

Before you start your comparison it is a good idea to have your most recent electricity bill handy.

I want a cheap electricity plan. Do the price estimates include discounts?

You can tell us whether you want us to include discounts in your electricity cost estimates by filtering your preferences. We can include discounts for pay on time, direct debits or online billing as well as pensioner concessions.

I am moving and don’t have a recent electricity bill.

No problem, we can still give you an estimate of the cheapest electricity plans for your household size and eligibility for conditional offers like pay on time discounts.

Simply enter the postcode or suburb of where you will be moving to and start comparing cheap electricity plans.

Do you compare renewable energy plans?

Yes, if choosing your electricity plan based on renewable energy generation is important to you we can show you which plans will best suit you. Many providers give you the option to source your electricity from renewable sources such as solar, wind or hydro. Our results will detail what percentage of energy is sourced from renewable sources for each plan.

I have solar panels, can I compare solar plan prices?

If you already have solar panels installed at your property we can detail the plans that allow for solar but our cost calculations will not include any feed in tariff rebates. You will need to calculate this independently.

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.

Where can I learn about saving electricity and lowering my electricity usage?

In addition to our electricity cost comparison tool, we’ve got a range of information on our site from helpful electricity guides to energy saving tips. If there is something you’d particularly like us to cover, get in touch with us here.

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.

I like Red Energy because they are Australian owned, easy to understand, customer service is personalised, they have a flexible billing service (direct debit with credit card) and they have a rewards program with retailer discounts. The only con is that sometimes there is a long wait on the phone.
