How to connect your electricity

So, you’re moving home. Whether you’re buying or renting in most Australian states and territories (except for WA or regional QLD), you’ll need to choose from a range of electricity providers before you move in.

Need Power?

Bruce Springsteen’s MTV Unplugged might have been cool, but if you’re unplugged and powerless in your new home, it’ll probably just be cold and miserable.

Let us help you get connected before you move in and tell you about

  • things you need to consider;
  • how to connect a brand-new build;
  • moving interstate;
  • connecting electricity for renters; and
  • changing providers when you move.

We’ll then help you compare electricity plans from a range of providers, so you can connect and enjoy the move with all the necessities of modern life*.
