Australian government - energy made easy: the power to compare

How do I filter my results to show what's important to me?

When you search for an energy plan on Energy Made Easy, you might find a lot of plans in your suburb, depending on where you live! How can you reduce your search results so you can find the right plan for you? We show you how to filter your results by what is important to you.

Things that might be important to you include:

  • the discounts or fees attached to plans
  • how you can pay your bills, including Centrepay for Centrelink customers
  • plans with special offers or discounts
  • the frequency of your bills
  • only plans that include solar feed-ins, GreenPower or demand charges
  • who the retailer is.

You can filter all these options and more on the results page. Here is how to find the right plan for you:

Step 1: Start at our homepage and complete an energy plan search.

Step 2: When you arrive at the results page showing all of the available plans in your area, use the tabs at the top of the results to select to view 'Single rate plans', 'Time of use plans', or 'All plans'.

Step 3: By clicking on the drop-down menu above the first result, you can sort the plans by 'lowest price' or 'highest solar feed-in tariff'.

Step 4: You also have the option to view plan costs 'per quarter' (the default setting), 'per month' or 'per year' and select to filter by 'excluding discounts' or 'including discounts'.

Step 5: You will now see on the left-hand side of your screen additional filter options categorised by 'Energy companies', 'Only show plans with', 'Plans with conditions', 'Special offers', 'Discounts for', 'Payment options', 'Fess', 'Contracts' and ' Bundled plans'.

To refine the results, click on each filter heading to see your options, then tick the checkbox options that are important to you. The plan results will automatically update.

Once you have applied the filters to refine your results, you can compare a smaller, more relevant set of energy plans that best match your preferences.

If you want to change your filters to see other available energy plans, you can simply change your existing selections, and the results will automatically update.

For example, if you're interested in seeing plans with no exit fees, BPAY, no contract and solar feed-in, choose those filters.
