Ok, I'm not one for being a spammer or supporting spam - so this is NOT intended to be spam. This is a genuine word of mouth sharing of my experience with a service called Energy watch. www.energywatch.com.au You call them or leave some info and they call you back. Based on your bill data, a few questions and your post code, they will review all the gas and electricity supplier options in your area and suggest someone. In my case, their suggestion worked out to be a 20% on electricity and a 14% saving on gas compared to my current suppliers. No shit! Anyway, I told the energywatch dude to hold his horses as I didn't want to sign up then and there. I wanted to check my own supplier's best deal myself. I figured that if an existing customer was going to jump ship, they'd want to wine and dine me. The energywatch guy was a bit disappointed as they work on a commission basis but I told him that he could call me back the next day and if his recommendation held up after I had a chance to make my calls, he would have the sale. I'd given him a grilling, he had earned his commission. I made my calls and checked a few other mobs and the energywatch recommendation came up trumps. Interestingly, my suppliers had no intention of wining and dining me which was surprising. Anyway, the guy called me back at the appointed time and he got the sale. I could have signed up directly with the recommended supplier - they offered me the same rate, but seriously the guy had earned his commission so it was only fair he get it. You don't have to use a service like this. Nothing is stopping you from making the calls to the mobs that service your area yourself. I'm just letting you know that the work is already done. For folks in Nicola Roxon's electorate, the odds are that Energy Australia will be the least expensive gas and electricity supplier for you. The 2yr contract is the down side.
