If you live in the suburbs of Brisbane, the Gold Coast or other areas of South East Queensland, you can change your energy provider to save money.
If you live in regional Queensland, you can also choose your electricity retailer. However you have the right to be supplied at the regulated prices which are set annually by the Queensland Competition Authority. This option is available if your property is connected to the Ergon Energy Network.
From shortlisting the best energy providers in your area to scouting a better deal with your existing energy retailer, Mozo’s free comparison tool can help you conveniently navigate the energy market. All you need to do is type in your QLD postcode or suburb into Mozo’s energy comparison tool and we’ll help you find the best energy package depending on your energy needs and usage patterns.
If many energy retailers operate in your suburb of Queensland, there will be a range of incentives for you to choose from. While some may try to attract you with ‘sign up’ offers, for example, 50% of your first bill, it’s important for you to look at what’s good for you beyond the introductory period. Here are some features that you should consider before you sign up for an energy plan:
The Queensland government provides a number of energy rebates for gas and electricity. If you are a pensioner or senior, in Queensland you may be entitled to:
$340.85 per year (GST inclusive) for the Electricity rebate
$73.60 per year (GST inclusive) for a reticulated Gas rebate.
To be eligible for the rebate you must be the electricity account holder and also live alone or share your principal place of residence with your spouse or dependents.
You apply for this rebate direct from the energy retailer. When you are comparing QLD energy plans here on Mozo, we can take any government rebates that you would be entitled to into account. Just answer yes to the question, “Do you have a concession card?”.
When you are shortlisting energy providers, it is important to first understand that there is no one best provider for everyone. The cost of your bill will be completely different to your neighbour because your bill is determined by how much energy you use, your payment features and plan choices. So depending on how you want to prioritise different features such as cost, customer service or renewable energy, you can find a provider and plan that is the best for your home.
Every year, Mozo’s energy experts compare energy plans and prices to determine the winners of the Mozo Experts Choice Energy Awards. The winners in Queensland are different to those in Victoria but the analysis done by our team is the same for each state, a highlight of the plans and energy retailers that provide Australians with exceptional value for money.
Here on Mozo you can also read up on what real customers think of their Energy provider before you sign up for a new plan. You can read energy reviews on our site from over 30 energy providers.
We understand that if you are new to the Sunshine State you won’t have an existing gas or electricity bill to compare prices against, but you don’t need to worry about that. We’ve collected data on the average energy costs across all QLD postcodes and can work out how much you could pay based on an estimated usage.
Generally speaking it is a good idea to compare the available energy plans and arrange connection at your new property at least 2-5 days before you are due to move. Some electricity and gas providers only need 1 business day prior to your move get you connected, as long as there is safe access to the meter.
There is the option to select your move in date, when you use our energy plan search. This will enable us to provide you with a list of energy providers and plans that can connect your property or postcode on the date you select.
One of the easiest ways to reduce your energy bills is to switch to a cheaper energy plan or provider. If you’ve been with your current QLD energy provider for a long time, chances are, you could find a plan that will save you money, sometimes hundred of dollars a year. Why not check for yourself now by feeding in your postcode into Mozo’s energy comparison tool and see a list of energy plan and estimated costs available in your area.
If you don’t have many options in terms of choosing your QLD energy retailer, you can still lower your energy bills by reducing the amount of energy you use at home. This will of course require some effort on your behalf but if you’re ready to get started, we’ve got some great tips in our energy savings hub.
Information on energy plans that you will see listed on the results page comes directly from each energy provider and is updated regularly to reflect the most recent tariffs and fees that will be applicable.
If you want to get price estimates based on your actual energy usage at your QLD property, you will need to have a recent energy bill from your current energy provider. If you don’t have this information available, we can still give you price estimates but these will be based on average energy usage for your postcode. You may use more or less energy than the average.
Yes, our service includes energy plans that are solar compatible. You can also review the feed-in tariff rates for each plan to estimate the discount you’ll get for feeding back power into the grid.
If you live in an area of Queensland where you can choose your electricity and gas provider, you will be able to switch as a renter as long as the energy bill is in your name. If you have your energy bill included in your rent, the responsibility for choosing an energy provider and plan will be up to the landlord.
Often, energy providers will offer customer incentives to bundle their gas and electricity plans like a percentage discount off your bill. This is often called a duel fuel bundle. While it is certainly convenient to have your energy bills and payments going to the same provider, it doesn’t always mean that this will be your cheapest option.
With our service, you can sort between dual fuel plans and individual plans to find the best bundle for you.
Generally, the amount of time it takes to switch providers depends on when your meter was last read. It can take anything from a few days to three months until you start receiving your bills from the new Queensland energy supplier.
Customers who are moving premises, typically need to give 2 to 5 business days of notice to their provider to move their energy account to the new address. If you need to move your energy account more urgently, you can call and request for them to transfer the account sooner.
One of the biggest misconceptions about switching energy plans is that there will be a disruption to your electricity and gas supply. This is not true. You will not notice any change at all to the supply of electricity and gas to your home, other than (hopefully) a lower power bill.
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.
*To calculate the potential savings figure Mozo identified the lowest plan provided by Mozo and highest cost plan in each energy distributor state region based on the average residential usage in that state. The costs data used across the state is current at 17 August 2020. Not all plans will be available via the Mozo energy comparison service. Your individual usage and location, along with which plan you are on and which plans are available on the Mozo site at any given time, will vary the savings you may be able to achieve using the Mozo energy comparison service.
I've only been with Origin Energy for around 9 months so far and haven't had serious issues. They're very understanding of you can't afford to pay your bill all upfront and will offer you a payment plan that you can afford.
