How to choose an energy supplier: new comparison website info sessions

The Victorian Energy Compare is looking for community organisations interested in hosting bill literacy and energy affordability sessions to help people better understand energy deals.

Victorian Energy Compare is the Victorian Government’s independent energy price comparison website which allows users to compare electricity, gas and solar offers and find the best deal for them. It is independent, and has every generally available electricity, gas and solar offer.

The website works by taking information about where the consumer lives and their current energy usage to identify and compare the prices of different energy offers available to the consumer.

Until 31 December 2018, you can claim a $50 Power Saving Bonus just for simply comparing energy offers on Victorian Energy Compare.

The Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning has recently worked in partnership with community organisations to host successful information sessions and would like to continue these partnerships. 

The sessions provide practical advice on finding the best energy offer, as well as addressing the structure of bills and different pricing options and concessions.

Find out more about hosting an information session by emailing Amy Willett on or calling 0412 230 915.
