4 simple steps to take control of your energy bill

We want to help raise awareness of the support that is available to help Victorians manage their energy costs. There are many easy and effective things you can do to save energy and money at home.

We’ve partnered with Consumer Policy Research Centre (CPRC) to bring you information on 4 simple steps you can take to control your energy bill as part of the Energy Simplified program. This program was developed in partnership with the Victorian Government, Ellis Jones and CISVic in 2019.

Take a look at the Energy Info Hub to find out more, or join one of the free webinars being delivered by CPRC to ensure this essential resource reaches those who need it most.






If you are eligible, check concessions are being applied on your energy bills. 
   Make sure you are on your energy retailer's best offer or find the best deal for you on the Victorian Energy Compare website.
Follow the energy saving tips to keep warm and stay cool, whilst staying comfortable.
If you’re having trouble paying your bill, understand your rights and the support that is on offer to you.
