Is it really worth switching energy offers? How much can I save?
Most people can save money by switching to another energy deal. How much you save depends on which offer you’re on now, but many people save hundreds of dollars. Our analysis shows that program participants have saved an average of $205 off electricity and $185 off gas.
How will you help me find a better deal?
We use a government-run tool called Victorian Energy Compare. It compares most energy offer available to the public to find you the cheapest deal.
We can help you find a better deal over the phone or in-person – whichever works for you. We are holding a number of events around Melbourne to explain the process and help people switch.
How long will Your Energy Broker run?
This pilot project will run until September 2019.
Can you assist my community or social group?
Yes. We can come to your group and help people save money.
