Energy Switch 2.0 to Slash Gas Bills
Households on the Northern Beaches can now switch and save potentially hundreds of dollars a year on their gas bills thanks to an expansion of the NSW Government’s popular Energy Switch service.
Member for Manly James Griffin announced today that households across the Northern Beaches could benefit from the expanded offering from Service NSW.
“Winter has arrived and it is a great time to revisit our gas and electricity plans. Energy Switch takes only minutes and could slash your energy bills,” Mr Griffin said.
“Energy Switch helps ease the cost of living for families by putting the power back in their hands so they can find the best deal possible.”
Mr Griffin said about 7,000 households across NSW have already made a switch on their electricity bills, identifying close to $3 million in annual savings, since the free service launched in November 2018. The average saving is $435.
“Energy Switch works by using a customer’s latest energy e-bill and comparing it with every retailer in NSW before presenting the top three plans available,” Mr Griffin said.
“If a switch is requested, Service NSW will inform the energy provider and do the heavy lifting for the customer by making the switch for them.”
Energy Switch is accessible online or by visiting any Service NSW Centre.
Energy Switch is one of more than 70 NSW Government rebates and incentives easing the cost of living for households. Others include cheaper Green Slips and refunds, $100 Active Kids and Creative Kids vouchers and free rego for regular toll users.
