FAQ about switching electricity providers

Here are some answers to questions about what happens once you have completed the comparison process and have decided to switch electricity providers.

If you change your mind it's okay, your new electricity provider has to give you a ten-day 'cooling-off' period, which means you have ten days to cancel the process and remain with your old energy provider.
No, definitely not! The actual delivery of energy to your house, via the pipes and wires, is all done by an energy distributer (not by your retailer). That distributor will continue to supply the electricity to your house when you switch to another energy retailer. It is the retailer that issues your electricity bills, but they purchase energy from the distributor and resell it to you. You can't buy electricity directly from the distributor, you have to buy it from an energy retailer. You can be certain that when you switch retailers, your electricity supply won't be interrupted because the connection to the distributor will continue to be the same as before.
The 'paperwork' is all processed very quickly, usually in under 24 hours. But the final switchover can't happen until your current provider has issued you your final bill, and they'll only be able to do that after the next time they read your meter. So, it depends on how soon your next meter reading is. It could take up to three months.
Compare and Connect will sign you up with the new energy provider, and we will notify your current provider that you're moving to another provider. The actual change to your new provider won't happen immediately, though, because the old provider will need to do a meter reading one final time. and then issue you their final bill. Your new provider only starts charging you from the date of the meter reading. the distributor that feeds the energy to your premises will continue to be the same one as before the switch.
No. Our service is free to you. However, we will receive a commission from the new electricity provider.While our service is provided to you without charge, you may be subject to charges in relation to your current service, including exit fees. You should check this with your current supplier(s).

Electricity Market Deregulation and Competition in Adelaide

Since the late 1990s the electricity market in Australia's Eastern and Southern states has been undergoing a deregulation process. The first step was to establish an intra-state electricity network that enabled electricity that was produced in one state to be delivered to customers in a different state.

The next stage, which happened sooner in some states than others, was the splitting up of state owned monopolies into several competing entities, then privatising them. In order to promote a greater degree of competition the market was separated into two levels

The distributors have the responsibility for the actual delivery of electricity to customers' premises . They own and maintain the powerlines and poles, but do not deal directly with customers.

The electricity retailers sell the electricity to the customers and are responsible for billing. Each state has between one and three distributors but up to thirty retailers.

The electricity market in Adelaide was fully deregulated in July 2013. This meant that customers could switch to the provider who offered the cheapest electricity prices.

Tips to lower electricity consumption and lower your bills

Here are a few easily implemented tips to reduce how much electricity you use

  • Minimise draughts. Prevent hot or cold air getting in or getting out through gaps under doors and around windows by using door snakes and gap seal tape.
  • Turn off all your appliances at the power point when you're not using them.
  • Avoid use of the clothes dryer. Instead, dry your clothes outside or use an indoor clothes rack.
  • Instead of turning on the heater, wear warmer clothing (warm socks, jumper, beanie, booties).
  • A cheap alternative to an electric blanket is a hot water bottle.
  • Use less lighting. Use natural light more often. Turn the lights off when you leave the room.
  • Stop the hot sun from over-heating your home by closing blinds and curtains in the rooms where the sun shines in.
  • Use less air conditioning by opening your windows in the evening let the house cool down, and then closing them in the morning to keep the hot air out.
  • Close the doors to areas of the house that you don't use, so that you just heat or cool a smaller space.
