              Why compare energy plans with Finder?

              • We don't charge extra. Prices shown on Finder are the same as those you get directly from energy providers.

              • We regularly update plans and offers from providers so you can make an informed decision.

              • We've helped over 1.16 million people compare energy plans in the last 3 years.

              How do I compare and switch energy providers in SA?

              When looking for a new energy provider, it's important to keep these things in mind:

              • Compare a wide range of plans. Have a recent bill handy and start your search by using our comparison tool to find a plan with cheaper rates than your current plan. Consider plans that are at least 10% less than the reference price. This is a benchmark set by the government to help you compare.
              • Watch out for hidden fees. Providers can charge for things like disconnection/reconnection fees, late payment fees, meter read fees and the like. These costs can vary between retailers so keep these in mind when comparing energy plans.

              Greenest energy providers in SA

              According to the Green Electricity Guide by Greenpeace, the 3 greenest electricity providers in South Australia are:

              These providers add a significant amount of renewable energy to the SA power grid.

              Of these 3 only Diamond Energy generates 100% renewable energy and is not associated with any fossil fuel companies.

              What's the difference between a carbon-neutral provider and GreenPower?

              You can still make a difference even if you aren't able to find a carbon-neutral provider.

              Some retailers offer carbon-neutral plans or GreenPower add-ons where they put energy back into the grid on your behalf. Choosing GreenPower comes at a cost, but you can decide how much of it you want to add on.

              Do I qualify for any energy rebates or concessions in SA?
