Operated by the Australian Energy Regulator

An Australian Government service, operated by the Australian Energy Regulator (AER). They do not get kick-backs by by referring you on to Energy Companies, so it's accurate and independent. You can compare Electricity and Gas or both combined.
Uppload your previous energy consumption (1) manually or (2) by uploading your bills in PDF format, or (3) by selecting Using Your meter data which uses your last 12 months useage for electricity bills
I check my energy bills at least every six monnths to make sure I am still on the best rates.

waste of time and completely not easy to use

took very long time to find best deal on this website but after going actually to the energy provider website, the plan does not exist and there is a different one : much more expensive and not single rated ( this is my only requirement ! )

Does NOT work - EVER!

More like Energy made difficult! I've tried to use this website at least 15 times over several weeks. It never works, absolutely ever! Each time it comes up with a different error message or doesn't find any search results.

There are plans here that are not available when you contact the provider

There are plans here that are not available when you contact the provider. A bit silly to use a lot of time select a plan, try to sign up, and the real plan rates are much worse. Why is this a gov backed site? Lip service I, guess?

Useless

Submitted my meter data using NMI. It brings back a bunch of plans, but when I go to sign up with the retailer those plans are not actually available and the terms offered are much worse than on the Energy Made Easy website.

If zero stars were available... Comparison site fails every time: Un Serviceable

Enter NMI accept all prompts, observe "Something went wrong" error message. Click try again.
Repeat above process half a dozen times (four times after defining insanity), then decide system does not work.
Summary: System ONLY compares bills, so if you have recently installed solar or made changes to your useage and been commuted to Time of use (ToU) tarrifs forget it until a couple of more billing cycles.
Like the joke from the coal miners in Chenobyll: “What’s as big as a house, burns 20 liters of fuel every hour, puts out a crap-load of smoke and noise, and cuts an apple into three pieces? A Soviet machine made to cut apples into four pieces!”

Website doesn’t work

Can’t find plans for inner city (Sydney) suburb. Can’t list current suppliers, only 2 nonsensical ones.
Beta site couldn’t find NMI data, even though the NMI was correctly entered, repeatedly!

Another failed joke of Australian govt supposedly helping consumers

in order to use the service, you have to upload your latest energy bill. But the geniuses who work in Federal Govt haven't figured out how the interwebs work, so you CANNOT upload your billl- the site will just give you repeated error messages that you've done something wrong (spoiler: you haven't). This useless malfunctioning website no doubt cost millions of Australian taxpayer dollars in fees paid to incompetent programmers and developers. Another rort courtesy of Scott Morrison and the Libs.

Great idea but

Had a problem with their website so tried to call them but after 40 minutes waiting I never got through to them. It seems a pity that if the government is going to provide such a service they don't support it appropriately.

energy made easy website is terrible. the plan recommended to me - Alinta Energy - was not the plan I was signed up to. my bill arrived and the rates were so much more expensive.
do not proceed based on the sites recommendation - always check direct with the retailer. the site - while easy to use - is NOT reliable.

Does the Australian government make money from energy companies?
