Are you with the most expensive power company? If not, how much can you save each month?
With over 15 different power companies throughout New Zealand, it is becoming increasingly difficult for households to keep track of which is the cheapest.
Many households are unaware how easy it is, and how much of a better deal there is to be had had by simply switching energy providers.
Power prices vary from region to region, and a retailer that is cheap in one town may be the most expensive in another. The prices are also changing regularly so it’s important to keep one step ahead of any price rise.
Some examples of the extreme price differences in the electricity market for a typical 4 person household (single uncontrolled meter using 900kWh of electricity) per month. (30 days)
CITY Most Expensive (approx per month) Cheapest (approx per month) Monthly Saving
Auckland $252 $215 $37
Hamilton $255 $212 $43
Wellington $272 $217 $55
Dunedin $247 $190 $57
Christchurch $234 $195 $39
The above results were sourced from a New Zealand energy comparison website. Astonishing to see just how much a small family could be over paying for their power, and could putting towards food for the Christmas table instead.
Everyday expenses such as food and electricity constantly on the increase, everyone should be looking for a better deal for power and paying the least amounts as possible on household outgoings.
With Christmas just around the corner, now is the time to cut costs and save for a great family occasion. With a family of 4 potentially savings over $50 per month, electricity it’s a good place to start.
