            How do I find the best energy provider for my household?

            There are 4 key things to consider when comparing energy providers in New South Wales.

            1. Find a better price. Look out for the cheapest energy plans available in your area. You can use Finder's comparison engine to help you out. Keep your most recent bill handy as well. Just make sure you're getting the right offer for your usage.
            2. Keep an eagle eye out for reference price/discounts when comparing. The government introduced the reference price back in 2019 to help customers compare energy plans. For example, providers will sometimes showcase a plan by stating it's "8% less than the reference price" or that you will receive an "8% discount". Don't settle for plans that are above the reference price.
            3. Default market offer (DMO) vs market offer. Historically, the market offers displayed on most providers' websites have been lower than the DMO, also known as standing offer. However, we're in unprecedented times and this may not always be the case. Remember that while providers may not always display DMOs on their website, you can call them and request to get on one.
            4. Watch out for extra costs. These can include late fees, credit card fees, disconnection and reconnection costs and can sometimes vary between providers.
            • Good to know: It's easy to switch to a new provider either online or over the phone. The new provider will handle everything for you, including letting your current provider know. After you sign up, you have a cooling-off period of 10 business days. Contact your energy company within this timeframe if you want to end your contract for any reason.
