Home Blog Energy bill Don’t get caught out! Power bills set to spike in January


The Victorian Default Offer (VDO) has been increased by the Energy Regulator in Victoria. Power bills will increase by 8% or on average $110 per year for homes, with this taking effect in January 2020 as reported by The Age on November 26th.

Many in the industry are recommending that customers shop around to get the best electricity prices on offer by over 30 retailers in Victoria.

If you haven’t looked at your electricity bill lately or switched your retailer recently, you could be in line for around $200 to $300 savings per year. It could be a lot more if you are already on the Victorian Default Offer as many customers are.

For Business who do not have the protection of the Victorian Default Offer the savings can be even greater, with savings of $1000 to $1600 a year.
