Introduction

With Energy Switch you can compare the plans of all NSW household electricity providers, and switch to a different plan if you want to.

If you receive your bill directly from your electricity provider and you meet the eligibility requirements, use the Energy Switch tool to compare your plan with other available plans. If you decide to switch providers, we’ll initiate the switch process for you. 

Eligibility

  • If you'd like to switch providers, you'll need to be the account holder of a current electricity plan in NSW.  

If you're a business customer or on an embedded network (meaning your building is under a separate supply contract) you're not eligible.

What you need

  • a digital PDF of your electricity bill (e-bill)
  • a MyServiceNSW Account if you'd like to switch your plan.

More information

  • Energy Switch is free for all NSW residents.
