How does our energy comparison work?

How do we make money?

We don’t charge consumers anything to use our comparison service. Instead, we receive a commission each time one of our customers takes out a new energy offer after being referred to our trusted partner, Residential Connections Pty Ltd.

We pride ourselves on the integrity of our comparison service so it is critically important to us that the way we make money doesn’t affect the comparison or presentation of energy plans from our partner energy retailers.

How does our comparison service work?

Choosing the right energy product can be difficult and time consuming. Our comparison services aims to make that process easier and faster for our customers, and allows them to shop around for a better deal, giving them peace of mind that they have made the right decision.

On our website, our customers can enter details about themselves and their property, what product they want (electricity, gas or both), then browse through the energy products that are available to them. If they know their usual usage, they can enter this information to obtain an estimate of the yearly energy costs with the retailers they are comparing. Once they have chosen a product that they wish to purchase, they can complete an application through a call centre operated by our trusted partner, Residential Connections Pty Ltd.

When showing results for combined products (both electricity and gas), our comparison service only shows combined products. Our customers are able to search for and compare stand-alone products from separate energy providers by conducting separate searches through our comparison service.

What brands and products do we compare?

We currently compare products from the following energy retailers:

      • Origin Energy
      • EnergyAustralia
      • Powershop
      • Click
      • Alinta Energy
      • Red Energy
      • Globird
      • AGL
      • Powerdirect
      • Mojo Power

We are working hard to welcome on board energy retailers that are not currently part of our comparison service and we hope to have good news on that front for our customers in the future.

There will be times when certain products are not available, or do not return any quotes to a customer. Primarily, the range of products compared for a particular customer will depend on where their property is located.
