    I'll bump this up again in case anyone missed it last time. The link is in my post above although I think there's a problem with the site after a virus attack.

    Cheaper power a mouse-click away

    Some households are losing hundreds of dollars a year by not shopping around for the best deal on electricity.

    Since 2002, consumers have been able to compare deals relatively simply using online calculator PowerSwitch - but new UMR research released by the Electricity Commission this week found just 13 per cent of respondents had heard of the website.

    An in-depth, national analysis indicated many customers could save $150 a year or more by switching to the cheapest supplier in their area.

    Yet, the commission said, a "sizeable proportion" did not do it.

    For residential customers with average power use and on the most common tariff , the study found potential savings of shopping around varied from nothing to about $265 a year - or more if they could change to a more suitable plan.

    More here.
