From the moment you wake up in the morning, to the time you go to bed at night, electricity is something you rely on. And whilst energy bills have always been a point of contention, the COVID-19 pandemic has sent them skyrocketing.The majority of Australian households will face higher energy bills this year. The pandemic has created higher energy usage across the country with many Aussies working from home, parents and children schooling from home and the increase in staying in on the weekends to stop transmission.So, if there’s ever been a year to take your energy plan seriously - this should be the one! “Energy bills, after mortgage repayments, can be one of our biggest household expenses as Australians. This year’s awards analysis showed that there can be big cost differences between energy plans, so it really pays to shop around,” said Mozo Expert and Awards Judge, Peter Marshall.The Mozo Experts Choice Awards are all about helping Aussies find the best value deals. For the 2020 Energy Awards Mozo’s Expert assessed over 650 residential and over 400 small business energy plans and ranked them by cost to find the best energy plans in each state. “Switching to a cheaper energy deal means more money in your pocket. Whether you’re a family or a small business, the less money you shell out for bills, the more money you have to spend on other essentials,” said Marshall.Residential electricity winnersReAmped has been named our Electricity Retailer of the Year, winning multiple awards for best value in New South Wales, Queensland and South Australia. ReAmped consistently ranked amongst the cheapest options available for residential customers, focussing on giving their customers the lowest energy prices possible without the offers and gimmicks other competitors tend to use.
With Australians now spending more time than ever at home, it’s no surprise their energy bills may be higher than usual. But did you know you could save potentially hundreds of dollars just by switching to one of the best electricity companies around? While searching for the sharpest electricity prices in your state or territory can involve a lot of effort, it doesn’t have to. If you’re confused by all the jargon or feel overwhelmed by choice, Mozo has done the hard work of shopping around for you with our 2020 Mozo Experts Choice Energy Awards.“Energy tariffs can be complicated and there are several factors you have to consider when figuring out which deals are going to give you the best value,” Mozo’s expert judge, Peter Marshall said. “So for the Mozo Experts Choice Awards, we do all those calculations for you and identify the plans that would be the cheapest for the majority of people.” This year, our expert judges took a deep dive into energy markets across the country: NSW, Victoria, South Australia, the ACT and south-east Queensland. They poured hours into comparing 662 products from 43 different residential retailers in order to determine the best of the bunch.And they found that in 2020, the little guys have won out over the big three retailers. Marshall explained that because the smaller providers aren’t able to rely on brand recognition, they compete on pricing instead. “We’ve been talking to a number of [these] retailers and they impress upon us just how few staff they run with, and yet they can offer the same services as the big guys at a much lower cost because of those lower overheads,” he said. Read on to see which electricity companies snatched the spotlight with their award-winning plans:
Energy report quick facts:
Almost half (40%) of renters experience energy hardship, according to new research from the Australian Housing and Urban Research Institute (AHURI).The research found that renters with low income, existing health issues and most concerningly, living in poor conditions, were the most vulnerable and more likely to experience financial hardship with their energy expenses. However, Dr Lyrian Daniel from the University of Adelaide believes that as energy hardship can have many faces, it’s difficult to determine the most effective way to help renters. “One of the big problems is that there is no agreed definition of how the community measures energy hardship,” he said. “It is critical that we’re able to capture and then monitor the different factors that lead people into energy hardship overtime so that effective policy responses that catch people before they experience deep and long-term disadvantage can be developed.” The quality of dwellings is said to be a major concern for renters trying to reduce energy costs, as 18% of public renters and 14% of private renters were unable to stay warm during winter. Tenants also felt limited by the options they have to improve the heating efficiency of their apartment, as many landlords didn’t value making energy efficient upgrades to their investment properties. “One strategy we propose is that landlords could be ‘incentivised’ to improve their houses’ energy efficiency and performance over time” Daniel said. “This could be done through landlords being able to claim tax rebates or other financial assistance so that appliances, such as old, inefficient hot-water services, could be upgraded to more energy efficient models instead of replaced with ‘like-for-like.”

As we know, the COVID-19 lockdown began in early March, which saw many Aussies having to adjust to work life from the comfort of their couch or unfortunately, experience financial hardship for the very first time.
As Aussies across the country ease themselves back into work following the Christmas break, the Victorian government has been well ahead of the game, announcing its decision for the Victorian Default Offer (VDO).
While the winter chill is certain to send shivers up the spines of many Aussies, the dreaded July 1 energy price update may have a similar effect.
