What are the Mozo Experts Choice Awards?

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

For the 2020 Energy awards, we compared 415 small business energy plans from 37 energy providers. The award winners named in the table 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.

“Small businesses often rack up hefty energy bills, but small business owners are usually time poor. Our Energy Awards are run because we want to make it easier for Australian small business owners to find the best value energy plans possible,” said Mozo Experts Choice Awards Judge Peter Marshall.

“Whether you’re just starting up your small business, or have been operating for years, every cent that you can save on your energy plan is more profit for you.”

For details on how we crunched the numbers and determined our winners see our 2020 Mozo Experts Choice Awards Energy methodology report.

 

Small Business Electricity Retailer of the Year

Powerclub Logo

For the second year in a row, Powerclub has been named our Small Business Electricity Retailer of the Year for NSW, QLD, VIC and SA. Mozo’s expert analysis showed that they were one of the best value options available for small business customers. Congratulations.

Powerclub does things differently to other energy providers, so it’s important to understand their model. They charge an annual membership fee, and a usage charge per kWh, but they also require you to hold a cash buffer 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 small business customers, 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 662 products from 43 residential energy retailers and 415 products from 37 small business energy retailers; covering a total of 44 retailers.

How do I find the best value 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 found the retailers and plans that came out the cheapest 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.
