Mozo Experts Choice Awards

What is the Mozo Experts Choice Awards?

Now in their sixth year, the Mozo Experts Choice Awards provide a platform to highlight products in the marketplace we believe offer great value to Australians.

For the 2019 awards, we compared 585 residential energy plans from 36 energy providers. The award winners named below offer the best value plans in each state in the areas of electricity, solar-friendly electricity, 100% greenpower and gas according to Mozo’s analysis.

Mozo compared every plan sold direct by every retailer in the market, for a range of different usage levels and in every distributor area, to find the best value options available. 

“This year, several new retailer brands feature in our lists of the lowest cost energy plans which really highlights why it is so important to shop around,” said Peter Marshall, Mozo Experts Choice Awards judge. 

“As the awards results show, energy doesn’t come in a one size fits all plan. You need to find a plan that is best going to meet your home’s needs as well as your budget.”

For details on how we crunched the numbers and determined our winners see our 2019 Mozo Experts Choice Awards Energy methodology report.

 

New South Wales Energy Winners

Powerclub are an innovator well worth looking into for anyone looking to actively manage their power costs. They charge an annual membership fee, and a usage charge per kWh. A cash buffer is also kept in a ‘Powerbank’ from which they will add or subtract the difference between the usage charge and the actual wholesale energy price.

Frequently Asked Questions

What’s the Judging Criteria for the awards?

Running since 2014, the Mozo Experts Choice Awards recognise products that deliver exceptional value or benefits to consumers.

See our methodology report for more detailed information on how we performed the price comparisons and determined the final winners list for the energy awards.

 

Did you compare all energy plans in the market for these awards?

Mozo considered all electricity and gas plans available to residential customers, where energy price fact sheets were published on the retailer website. Electricity plans that require the consumer to also sign up to a gas plan were excluded, as were products not aimed at the general public, such as those only available to households in a limited area.

We considered products in NSW, Victoria, South Australia, the ACT and in the contestable market in SE Queensland covered by the Energex electricity distribution network.

We grouped products into four categories for the awards:

● Electricity

● Solar-friendly electricity

● Green electricity

● Gas

In carrying out the Mozo Experts Choice Awards energy research we analysed 585 products from 36 residential energy retailers and 456 products from 32 small business energy retailers; covering a total of 37 retailers.

 

How do I find the cheapest energy plans for me?

You’ll want to check out the winners in your state. Our experts crunched the data on a range of energy use scenarios and these were the retailers and plans that came out the best value when compared to similar products.

It’s important to understand that energy prices are dictated by both your energy retailer and the specific energy distributor in your area. So, you’ll still need to do some comparing of plans and options to find a policy that is right for you and then get quotes, so that you can compare the price.
