The One Big Switch campaign needed 25,000 people to sign up to negotiate a twelve per cent saving, but that turned out to be a very conservative target.
"We have managed to get almost 200,000 people together in order to get a group discount on electricity and gas," One Big Switch's Lachie Harris said.
Harris says even he was surprised at how willing power providers were to drop their charges.More stories from Today Tonight
The discounts are:
- 16.5 per cent in New South Wales
- 18.5 per cent in Victoria
- 15.5 per cent in South Australia
- 12 per cent in Queensland
"They are great discounts in a really competitive environment," Harris said.
The opportunity to sign up finishes next month.
