2 What happens if you don’t want to choose

‘Shopping around’ to find a cheaper energy plan for your home is not for everyone. The good news is that if you ‘choose not to choose’, there is an energy plan to help.

The Victorian Default Offer (VDO) is the government’s fair price for electricity.

If you don’t want to choose an energy plan, you can call your energy company and ask to be put on the government’s Victorian Default Offer.

This may not be the cheapest energy plan for your home but it’s a fair price for electricity, monitored by the government every year.

The price of the Victorian Default Offer is the same price, no matter which company you buy your electricity from.

Once you go on the Victorian Default Offer, you will stay on this rate, updated yearly, until you ask to move to a different energy plan.
