Wondering how you can stretch your dollar further? Your electricity bill could hold the answer.

If your latest energy bill took your breath away, you're not alone. According to a 2012 report released by the Energy Users Association of Australia, Australians pay some of the highest electricity prices in the developed world. While many of us accept the inevitable sting of sky-high bills, the truth is most Australians have the freedom to source a more competitive price and switch providers. Here are three compelling reasons why you need to compare electricity prices and make an informed decision about your provider:

Cheaper rates

Deregulated energy prices in New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia and Queensland means a highly competitive energy market that wants your business. Electricity retailers in these states offer consistently great deals to attract new customers, so if your existing retailer hasn't offered you a rate cut lately, it's time to shop around.

Bundle deals

Combining your electricity and gas plans is a very simple way to shave some dollars off your energy bills. Look for energy providers that can streamline your two accounts at a discounted rate.

Switching is easy

When you switch electricity supplier, all that changes is the amount you pay and the supplier's name at the top of the bill. Your actual electricity supply won't be affected, meaning you can make a seamless and risk-free switch.
