Campaign encourages switch to cheaper energy21st Jun 2012
Most of us are keeping a close eye on our finances at the moment and with more electricity price rises on the horizon, who could blame us?
It was recently announced that residents of New South Wales could be facing increases as high as 18 per cent next month - so what can we do to protect ourselves?
Well aside from installing solar panels, switching to a more affordable energy supplier should also be on the cards for any home or business owner.
A campaign is underway to encourage people to change supplier - and it's known as the Big Electricity Switch.
The premise is simple…if you would benefit from switching to another utilities provider, then do it!
One Big Switch, the campaign group behind the initiative, explains that "fortunately changing gas or electricity providers is a lot easier than changing banks - just a couple of mouse clicks" so we really have no excuse not to give it a try.
So head online, take a look at what you're currently paying and see if there's something better out there - the chances are you could save more than you think!
