When Syd­ney man Ryan be­came fed up with high en­ergy bills that gave lit­tle in­sight into con­sump­tion and cost, he went look­ing for a bet­ter op­tion. “I had be­gun look­ing at some of our fi­nan­cial prod­ucts and larger house­hold ex­penses to make sure that the providers we were us­ing were giv­ing us the best value for money,” he says. Ryan lives in Syd­ney’s in­ner west with his wife and two-year-old twins, and the fam­ily was spend­ing about $3000 a year ($250 per month) on power. “I didn’t like that our orig­i­nal provider was es­sen­tially a ‘ black box’ send­ing us a quar­terly bill with no real in­sight into what the cost driv­ers were and show­ing no ini­tia­tive to help us get the bet­ter value I was seek­ing.”
