Member for Epping Dominic Perrottet announced today that households across the local community could benefit from the expanded offering.
“Winter has arrived and what better time is it to compare gas and electricity plans. It takes only minutes and could slash your energy bills by hundreds,” Mr Perrottet 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.”
Mr Perrottet said about 7,000 households across NSW have 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 Perrottet.
“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.
