Energy Switch is a free online comparison tool that works by comparing a customer’s latest electricity e-bill with all NSW electricity providers to see what they could be saving. It then provides the three cheapest electricity plans available.
The online tool provides all the information needed to switch plans and will remind you when it’s time to review your plan again.
During the pilot of the program across five Service NSW centres, the average saving was more than $550 per household. One customer saved more than $1600 on their energy bills.
Premier Gladys Berejiklian said Energy Switch is a game changer and is more than just another government comparison website.
“For the first time for an Australian government, customers can switch providers in minutes with the click of a mouse or a chat with Service NSW,” Ms Berejiklian said.
“With summer just around the corner, Energy Switch has come at the right time to help households save when their energy is highest.”
