Best energy providers NSW

Did you know that if you live in NSW you live in a state with a competitive energy market? This means you can choose your energy retailer. So, if you’ve been putting up with energy bill price increases each quarter and thinking there isn’t much you can do about it, you’re wrong. You can fight back by getting a better energy deal.

Mozo could help you to find a cheaper energy plan. Simply enter in your NSW postcode into our price comparison tool, and we’ll list out options from a range of providers based on your consumption and payment preferences.

How can I compare energy prices in NSW?

If you want to pay hundreds less on your rising electricity and gas bills, then Mozo is here to help! It is now easier than ever to find out how much you could be saving with our online energy comparison tool. We compare a wide range of plans and providers across New South Wales.

Our energy comparison service is completely free to use, and allows you to quickly find energy plans available in your area, and compare plan costs. You could save up to hundreds of dollars each year simply by switching your energy provider, or switching to a more competitive plan with your current provider.As energy providers often change their pricing and plans, if you’ve never compared your provider before, chances are there is a much better deal you may be missing out on.

Your energy costs are based on different factors, such as where you live in NSW, your specific usage charges and plan. Mozo helps you compare energy prices in minutes. If you have a recent bill handy, then you will be able to improve the accuracy of your results even further by entering your actual usage.

If you have recently moved to NSW and don’t have an existing bill to compare against, we can still show you a list of energy plans in your area for average households of a similar size and with a similar energy usage. We will then show you a list of the best electricity and gas providers and plans that are on offer in your suburb so you can compare which deal suits you best. 

What should I look for in a good energy plan?

Every energy provider that operates in NSW will have a range of energy plans for you to choose from. While many energy providers will have ‘sign up’ incentives for new customers such as “get $50 off your first bill” or 50% off your first electricity bill, there are other features you should consider:

  • Pay on time discount. Many NSW energy providers will offer customers discounts for paying their bill on time.
    Direct debit discount. You can get money knocked off your bill simply by setting up a direct debit from your account. You’ll still receive bill notification of your usage but you don’t need to worry about making the payment as the provider will directly debit your account on the due date. Just make sure you have enough funds in the account on the payment date or you could be hit with a missed payment fee and a bank fee.
    Clean energy generation. Opting for a green energy plan could be a better option for your conscious.
    Bill smoothing. If budgeting is top of mind, some energy retailers in NSW have plans that enable you spread out the cost of your electricity in regular instalments over the year, rather than in quarterly chunks. Read our bill smoothing guide.

How much does energy cost in NSW?

The cost of your energy service will be determined by a number of factors including where you live in NSW and how much energy you consume. Energy providers in New South Wales will calculate your bill based on:

  • fixed supply charge: a fixed price per day for your service
    usage: charged per kilowatt hour of usage

How can I reduce my energy bill?

There are really only two ways that you can reduce your energy bill. The first one takes some effort on your behalf. You can find ways to reduce the amount of energy you use. If you want to find out how you can save energy, head on over to our energy savings tips hub.

The second way for you to reduce your bill is to switch plans. If you’ve been with the one NSW energy supplier for a while, it is likely that there is a much more competitive plan in the marketplace which will reduce the cost of your bill.

It is worth looking at some of the discounts that some NSW energy providers offer customers like discounts for paying on time or paying by direct debit.

What about my meter? Will this make a difference to the cost of my energy bill?

Yes, the meter that is installed at your premise will determine the tariff you’re charged. In New South Wales there isn’t a government led initiative around the rollout of smart meters for all residential customers so the type of energy meter at your property will depend on how old your property is and the energy distributor in your area. The distributor is responsible for installing meters.

There are a number of meters available in NSW including:

  • Accumulation meters. These meters keep track of the accumulated electricity usage. You are charged a single flat rate for the electricity you use, so if you have this kind of meter at your premises you will generally be on a single tariff plan.
    Interval Meters: Record how much energy you use at different times of the day and are called time of use meters. The
    benefit of these meters is that you will be charged different rates for your electricity usage depending on the time of day.
    Smart meters: These are digital meters that measure energy use every 30 minutes. With a smart meter you are also able to choose more flexible pricing plans that allow for discounts depending on the time of day. Want more info, read our smart meter guide.

Energy comparison NSW FAQs

Moving to NSW?

If you are moving to NSW or moving to a new suburb our service can also help you. While you won’t have your existing bill to compare against we can still show you cheap energy plans in that area for average households of a similar size and with similar energy usage.

How many energy providers operate in NSW?

The exact number of licensed NSW energy retailers that you can choose from depends on where you live. While we do not compare every single plan on the market, we certainly try to compare a wide selection of the plans that are available if you sign up as a new customer.

Mozo compares energy providers in NSW, including brands such as:

  • ActweAGL
  • AGL
  • Alinta Energy
  • Click Energy
  • Dodo Power & Gas

  • Origin Energy
  • Powershop


Who is the best NSW energy provider?

There isn’t one provider that is the cheapest for every home, but Mozo can help you to find a cheap provider and energy plan for your home.

Here at Mozo, we understand that while we all want cheaper energy bills, sometimes there are other factors that are also important when choosing a new supplier, like whether they have good customer service or a commitment to renewable energy generation. We collect energy customer reviews of NSW energy providers so you can read these before you make your choice.


How long does it take to switch energy providers in New South Wales?

If you are switching providers but not moving premises the amount of time it will take for you to switch providers will depend on your last meter read. It can take up to 3 months for you to start receiving bills from your new energy provider.

If you are moving house, many NSW energy providers will have “move in” guarantees that ensure that your energy will be available on the date of your move. You will generally need to give them 2-5 days notice of the moving date.

Will it cost me anything to switch?

Energy providers in NSW do not charge you to switch providers if you are on an open contract. If you have signed a fixed term deal, you might be required to pay an exit fee if you terminate before the contract is finished.

If you are moving, most energy providers that operate in New South Wales charge connection fees for setting up the account and service to your home. The cost for this is usually added to your first bill.

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.

Friendly customer service. It's a good deal - if you pay on time. The daily rate for energy provision is less than other providers.
