Victorian Energy Compare is the Victorian Government's free to use, independent energy price comparison tool designed to help you find the best energy offer available to you.

It works by comparing what you're currently paying for energy with every generally available gas, electricity and solar offer on the market.

The comparison is easy to do and takes about 10 minutes. Victorian Energy Compare users can typically save $330 a year simply by switching energy retailers.

All you need is access to a device connected to the internet, a recent bill and some information about how your household or small business uses energy. You can also use your smart meter data file (which you can obtain from either your retailer or distributor) to make the comparison even simpler.

You can find more information on switching retailers and energy plans at Victorian Energy Compare.

If you are thinking about changing energy companies, there is more information on switching energy providers.
