Press Release: Victorians switch on to savings

We've all received an electricity or gas bill and shaken our head in amazement at the staggering price but very few ever bother to switch providers and save. Now that all it takes is a few clicks at Electricity and Gas section that is soon to change.

On Monday September 29th an Electricity and Gas section servicing Victorian residents was added to the site. Check it out and assess your own potential savings of up to $200 per year. A description of the Rate Detective electricity and gas savings process can be found on How to switch Electricity or Gas guide.

Other Australian states such as NSW, ACT, Queensland and South Australia, will be serviced by the Rate Detective site within the next month. Government controls in the other states and territories on energy prices means there are no discounts available to consumers.

Rate Detective Co-Founder, David Kaplan, points out, "Most Australians are completely unaware that other electricity and gas suppliers service their area and that there are savings to be made. We estimate Victorians will be able to simply and easily save up to 10% on their household energy bills using our new Electricity and Gas section."

The addition of this section to the Rate Detective site rounds out an already comprehensive collection of savings tools covering personal insurances, home loans, credit cards, personal loans, savings accounts and financial planning.

And they're not stopping there. Rate Detective continues to aggregate as many household and financial savings as possible, with new sections including broadband, telephone and health insurance to be added over the coming six months.

There really is no excuse to save now!
