The electricity market across is Australia is very diverse. As you will see in the electricity section of this site, the supply of electricity and the companies that administer the electricity distribution vary drastically, state-to-state.

With the large number of electricity suppliers in some states positioned against some states that have a monopoly supplier there is a huge spectrum of choice for some, and very little for others. Further to this, while it may seem that the competition is vast, in reality there are 3 main suppliers that supply to the retail electricity market. These are:

These 3 companies supply electricity to 80% of the retail market.

selecting a supplier

The majority of Australian households can choose their supplier and in doing so it is important to understand the different pricing and service levels that exist across the plethora of suppliers out there.

This is where Switchwise comes into play, we take the 'big picture' view of all our suppliers and while price is a big factor we also consider things like environmental performance, customer service, range of plans and payment options. Some of the questions we consider in adding new suppliers to our offering include:

  • Are there incentives or loyalty rewards?
  • Are there discounts for bundling gas and electricity?
  • Am I locked in a fixed-term contract?
  • What payment options are available?
  • Does the supplier have an online portal to manage my account from?
  • What payment options are available?
  • Does the supplier offer renewable energy options?
  • Who owns this supplier? Will profits be taken overseas?

Compiling this information takes a significant amount of time and effort. Switchwise makes it quick and easy to compare and choose from a variety of electricity suppliers.
