Gas & Electricity
We depend on electricity in our homes to power lights, electronic devices, and appliances, and in many cases to run heaters, air conditioners and hot water systems. And if they don’t use electricity, then they are probably reliant upon gas.
Electricity usage in business can be different dependent upon the type of business and the season, however, electricity costs can be a major expense.
Transportation will also be fuelled by electricity as more electric vehicles are released in Australia, meaning our reliance on electricity will continue to grow.
As our use of electricity rises, it seems so do the prices. You can take steps to reduce your electricity usage at home and in your business, such as choosing energy efficient appliances, installing LED light globes, and turn off and unplug appliances when not in use, but it is also important to regularly check your energy plan to ensure that you are getting a competitive electricity rate.

When comparing an energy plan, it depends on your motivations as most customers want to lower their bills and save money. Some of the factors to consider while evaluating energy plans and suppliers are
Generally your energy rates and payments for using energy are the only things that change. Your energy bill may also look different as it will be provided by your new retailer. Your energy will still be provided by the same distributor that looks after the power poles and wires in your area.
Once you confirm the new plan and submit your request to switch, the switch to your new energy offer will generally happen in only 2-3 days. However, it can depend on the retailer you choose and your location, and if you have any outstanding amount owed to your existing retailer.
