Are energy bills starting to take a toll on your budget? RACV’s new Energy Compare tool could be what you need to take back control, and save up to $650 a year on electricity.

RACV’s general manager home products, Juan Carlos Lopez, says many customers don’t understand their electricity and gas bills, but don’t do anything about it.

“But it’s always in the back of your mind that you are paying too much and could be getting a better deal.

“The reality is that the majority of us are probably not with the best tariff, so we did the numbers and if you compare the worst possible electricity tariff out there with the best one it can vary up to $650 a year.

“If you haven’t changed in years this could be even higher, up to $1300 a year. Gas is a little better but you could still save hundreds of dollars by switching.”

RACV Energy Compare ranks the tariffs of all retailers in an area, based on postcode and information including the number of household occupants. If you have a recent bill, your consumption numbers can be entered for the most accurate result.

“If we quantify this service in terms of the savings it can generate it’s quite substantial, so any switch adds up to a lot of savings for our members,” says Juan Carlos.

“We want to be a trusted source of information, especially in an area that is confusing and lacks trust from the consumer.

“We will always show you the best tariff for you at that point in time and there is no need to sign up with your phone number or email to use the site. We don’t think consumers should have to put up with pushy sales calls just to find the best deal.”
