How Can I Compare Electricity Plans?

When you are comparing electricity plans in ViC, consider the following:
  • Tariffs Type: When searching for an electricity plan, You should find out what your type of tariff is. It could be single rate, time of use, controlled load, or demand.
  • Energy Rates and Pricing: Most power plan price structures consist of two parts: a daily charge and a rate per kWh. Typically, a higher daily charge comes with a lower rate, and a lower daily charge comes with a higher rate. For solar panel users, there may also be a Solar Credit Feed-In Tariff.
  • Victorian Default Offer: In Victoria, the Essential Services Commission defines the “Victorian Default Offer” each year. When checking market offers, ensure they are cheaper than the “Victorian Default Offer.” Additionally, a higher discount compared to the Victorian Default Offer typically means lower costs for most users.
  • Feed-in Tariff: If you’ve got solar panels on your roof, make sure to also check the feed-in tariff rate, which indicates how much you’ll earn when selling the electricity from your solar panels back to the grid. In Victoria, the Essential Services Commission sets a minimum feed-in tariff annually.
  • Fixed Rate: If it’s a fixed plan, that means locking in a set price to be paid for electricity usage and daily supply charge for the duration of the term.
  • Renewable Energy: Some plans allow you to customize the percentage of power from renewable sources like sun, wind, biomass, and water, but this may also result in slightly higher electricity rates.
  • Usage Estimates: Use a tool to estimate costs based on your future or past usage data. This will provide you with the best estimate of how much you’ll need to pay after switching to a new plan. Additionally, the retailer may also provide you with an estimated electricity cost based on the number of people with typical usage.
  • Incentives and Promotions: Always ask whether the electricity retailer offers extra bonuses, such as bill credits, rewards program points (like Flybuys, Woolworths Rewards, Qantas Points), vouchers (RACV resort vouchers, gift cards), bundle discounts (additional discount when bundled with internet), or other incentives.
By following the above points, you can find the most valuable electricity plan.
