              How do I choose the best energy provider in QLD?

              There are a few things to keep in mind when finding the right energy plan for your household:

              1. Find a cheaper price. Start your search by looking for a plan that is cheaper than your current one (it's good to have a recent bill close by). Use Finder's comparison tool to help you out.
              2. Look for plans that are less than the reference price. The exact wording might vary between providers but look out for phrases like "10% less than the reference price". You shouldn't sign up for a plan equal to or higher than the reference price unless you have no other choice.
              3. Beware hidden fees. They'll differ between providers but watch out for disconnection/reconnection costs, late fees and credit card fees that might add to your bills.
