If you’ve been keeping tabs on the Aussie energy scene, you’ll have heard of Alinta Energy.
Alinta Energy is one of a new breed of electricity providers that are challenging the dominance of the “big three” retailers.
Also making waves is the Snowy Hydro-run Red Energy.
To begin with, Red Energy rose in Victoria but has now expanded across the east coast.
This week we’re going to be taking an in-depth look at what both providers have on offer.
Every plan has different benefits and different contract terms to examine before deciding for your home or business.

Alinta Energy’s competitive offers have seen them add close to a million Australian customers across the country.

In Melbourne, the Fair Saver 30 could nearly save $50 from your electricity bill.
Meanwhile, in Brisbane, you could save even more, $215 on the Home SaverPlus 28.

When considering providers, there’s more to look at than usage and supply charges.
In other words, think about other factors such as contract length, the size of discounts and any extra incentives.
You might like what a retailer has to offer, but there might be a hefty exit fee should you change your mind.
By all means, another thing to consider is customer service.
If you have any issues with your provider, it is a big bonus to have your concerns taken care of promptly.
Also, think about how your discounts are applied.
For the most part, Alinta Energy offers big discounts when you pay your bill on time.
Whereas Red Energy often offers extra incentives, like Qantas points.
