Claim your $50 power saving bonus
Everyone wants to save money on their energy bills, but 7 out of 10 Victorians are currently paying more than they need to.
To make sure you're not paying too much visit Victorian Energy Compare – the Victoria Government's independent website that compares all the energy retailers' prices. By using the site, you can compare all the energy retailers deals, and make sure you've got the best energy one available. Most people save an average of $330 in the first year alone.
And if that's not incentive enough, from 1 July to 31 December, you can get $50 just for comparing offers on the site.
How to claim your $50 bonus
To claim your $50, all you need to do is:
- Grab a PDF or hardcopy of one of your recent power bills.
- Visit Victorian Energy Compare between 1 July and 31 December 2018.
- Compare the energy deals available. You don't need to switch retailers, just check you're not paying more than you need to for your power.
- Upload your bill, enter your details and submit the claim. You'll be emailed a receipt and a $50 cheque will be sent in the mail.
Just remember, you can only claim one Power Saving Bonus per household, and only the person on the bill can make the claim.
