NSW households could save up to $1000 per year

In what is a major shakeup for the electricity market, NSW households can now quickly change electricity deals with Service NSW’s free Energy Switch service, potentially saving them up to $1000 a year on their bills.

The Member for Oxley, Melinda Pavey welcomed the new cost-of-living initiative and encouraged residents to test out the new price comparison and switching tool.

“Energy Switch is a game changer for NSW households trying to reduce cost of living pressure. There are a lot of Government price comparison websites – but this takes things to the next level,” Mrs Pavey said.

“It enables people to compare charges and lock in a better deal with the click of a mouse or a quick chat with Service NSW.” 

She said that Energy Switch used a customer’s latest e-bill to scan the entire retail electricity market and provide a list of the cheapest three electricity plans available based on their individual usage profile.

“If a switch is requested, Service NSW will inform the energy provider, taking the leg work out of the process for the customer.

“We know power prices are a pinch-point for many households which is why this service has been established to help reduce the cost of living.”
