Revealed: The cheapest Electricity offers in Victoria in January
The difference between a good plan and a bad plan is now over $700 for an average household.
Victorian households who don’t shop around for Electricity after the January price hike could now be paying over $700 more than they have to, according to analysis of government electricity data.
The gap between the cheapest offers in the state and those with no discount now ranges from about $1230 to $1950 for an average 4-person household.
3 Ways to Save:
A typical 4-person household in Victoria using 5000kWh of Electricity a year would pay $1230 on the Pacific Hydro Home Choice offer.
But if the same household was getting no discount with big providers AGL or Origin, they could pay $1950 a year on standing offers for the same amount of electricity.
That’s over $700 difference – and doesn’t yet take into account the potential saving on Gas bills.
