    Depends on how much you use, when you use it if you have a smart meter, peak load etc.

    input your bill details and call up your provider to match the best one you can find

    Its like insurance
    Shop around and do the actual "leg work" !
    We only have electricity, not gas, and have solar panels, but after some research found an older outdated provider plan with supply charges HALF of current rates, also WITH reasonable KWH charges/tarrif (though ever so slightly higher than some providers)

    Because we actually use very little electricity (over summer our quarterly bill was $110 :D ) the per day service charges are what add up to make the majority of our bill, so the lower supply charge made sense :)

    On the other hand, a higher supply charge for a lower tarrif would make sense if you were a high consumer :rolleyes:

    Did try the various consumer brokers as advertised on TV also.
    They worked out more expensive (because we arent a "good customer" as we use very little power" )
    When deciding and GOING DIRECT to the provider i had all the figures already, even then THEY tried to talk me into a more recent plan, even though it would cost me moreo_O
    They could not refuse my application to the old plan and it is locked in at that rate for 3 years total :D

    All for an hour or two doing due dilligence on the net :cool:












    (PS, it was Origin elec, supplied in NSW)

    +1 for powershop. They charge monthly but online usage and monitoring is decent.

    Happy when I see people shopping around for the best deals possible because better to have the hard earned in our pocket or using the additional funds for assets that's going to grow. I know you can get a referral incentive from current Powershop customers of $75 from memory.
