Sav­ing money on en­ergy

Tweed Daily News - - NEWS -

NEW South Wales house­holds can now quickly change elec­tric­ity deals with Ser­vice NSW’S free En­ergy Switch ser­vice, po­ten­tially sav­ing them up to $1000 a year on their bills.

Na­tion­als can­di­date for Lis­more Austin Curtin wel­comed the ini­tia­tive and is en­cour­ag­ing res­i­dents to test out the new quick and easy price com­par­i­son and switching tool.

“There are a lot of Gov­ern­ment price com­par­i­son web­sites – but this takes things to the next level,” Mr Cur­tain said.

“It em­pow­ers citizens by en­abling them a change elec­tric­ity providers and lock in a bet­ter deal with the click of a mouse or a quick chat with Ser­vice NSW.”

“En­ergy Switch uses a cus­tomer’s lat­est e-bill to scan the en­tire re­tail elec­tric­ity mar­ket, giv­ing them a list of the cheap­est three elec­tric­ity plans avail­able based on their in­di­vid­ual us­age pro­file. If a switch is re­quested, Ser­vice NSW will in­form the en­ergy provider, tak­ing the leg work out of the process for the cus­tomer.

“Cost of liv­ing is a big issue fac­ing lo­cal fam­i­lies and this ini­tia­tive could pro­vide them with much needed bill re­lief.”
