Best energy providers QLD

Is your energy plan burning a hole in your pocket every year? 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.

From shortlisting 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 energy packages depending on your energy needs and usage patterns.

How does Mozo's QLD energy comparison tool work?

With Mozo’s online price comparison tool it is now easier than ever to find out if you could save hundreds on your energy fees. We compare plans from leading energy providers across QLD to help you switch to a competitive deal.

As energy providers often change their pricing and plans, so if you’ve never compared your provider before chances are you may be missing out on a cheaper deal. Our comparison tool allows you to see the electricity and gas rates with an array of providers, giving you a range of options .

Within Queensland, energy rates often vary by region, so by telling us where you are we can look up which specific providers in our database service your area. If you have a recent bill handy, you can even enter your actual usage to improve the accuracy of the cost estimate. Your energy bill is based on factors such as where you live in QLD, your usage charges and your current plan options. If you want to get one of the best prices on electricity and gas, the best option is to compare your current bill with the offers available by other retailers. 

What should I look for in a good energy plan?

If many energy retailers operate in your suburb, 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:

  • Direct debit discount. No one likes to pay late payment fees and energy companies in Queensland will incentivise you to never skip a payment through a direct debit discount. You’ll still get your energy bill statement but on the payment date you don’t need to do a thing, the provider will directly debit your account. All you have to do is make sure your account has enough money on the payment date or you could end up with a missed payment fee plus an annoying bank fee. 
  • Pay on time discount. In addition to direct debit discounts you can slash a part of your energy bill by making your bill payments on time. But you need to be careful as to what this discount really amounts to. Mozo will sort through this for you by showing you plans ranked on price. 
  • Renewable energy options. If working towards a sustainable energy future for Australia is a priority for you, there is a wide range of energy plans that offer environment-friendly options. From installing solar panels to ensuring you sponsor energy produced from renewable sources, there’s a lot you can do. 
  • Convenient bill cycles. Sometimes stacking up your energy costs till the end of a quarter can result in a nasty bill
    shock. Some Queensland energy providers allow you to spread out the payments in regular instalments over the year. But do remember that this may involve ‘estimated’ bills that are predicted based on your usage history. While your provider will keep a check in case there is a gap between your estimated payment and actual spending, it’s a good idea to keep a track yourself.

Is it possible for me to reduce my energy bill?

One of the easiest ways to reduce your energy bills is to switch to a cheaper plan or provider. If you’ve been sourcing your energy requirements from one Queensland energy provider for a long time, chances are, you could find another plan that could save you. Check for yourself by feeding in your QLD postcode into Mozo’s energy comparison tool and see a list of energy plans available in your area.

If you don’t have many options in terms of choosing your 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 saving tips hub.

FAQs on energy comparison in Queensland

I’m moving to Queensland, where can I start searching for the best energy plans in my area?

You can start your search for energy plans available in Queensland right here with Mozo. Not all of Queensland is open to energy market competition so it will depend on where you are moving to - generally areas of North Queensland are not part of our service.

We understand that if you are new to the Sunshine State you won’t have an existing 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 the size of your household. You can then compare the energy providers available in your area via our service and decide which one is the best for you.

How many energy providers in Queensland can I choose between?

The number of energy retailers in QLD that you can choose between primarily depends on where exactly you are located. While South East Queensland offers a wide range of energy providers, options start reducing as you move towards the rural and regional areas. When you enter your postcode into Mozo’s comparison tool, we’ll be able to give you a snapshot of some of the providers in your area. We don’t compare every plan from every provider but here are some of the retailers that Mozo compares in its service:

  • AGL
  • Click Energy
  • Dodo Power and Gas
  • Energy Australia
  • Powerdirect
  • Poweshop
  • Simply Energy

Who is the best energy provider in QLD?

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.

How long does it take to switch energy providers in QLD?

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.

Will I need to pay to switch my provider?

You will not have to pay any extra charges to switch your energy provider in Queensland provided you are on an open contract. In case you are on a fixed term deal, you may have to pay a termination fee if you exit the contract before completion. If you are moving, many QLD energy providers charge a connection fee for setting up the service to your home. Do check if your provider also retails energy in your new suburb.

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.
