Dodo Electricity Plans

Dodo Power & Gas likes to keep things simple, with only one electricity market offer available in each state, in addition to the default offers it is also required to have. While Dodo previously had a reputation for big pay on time discounts, industry regulation changes in July 2019 saw it pull back on these conditional offers in all areas. Its plans in Victoria, NSW, Queensland and South Australia now have no discounts at all, but reasonably competitive rates.

The Dodo Power & Gas market offer is a variable rate contract with no fixed term. This also means there are no exit fees if you decide to switch providers at any time.

Is Dodo Power & Gas right for me?

Dodo Power & Gas can certainly be a competitive electricity retailer, but it tends to be more competitive in some areas than others so you’ll have to make sure you compare plans specific to your area. While its electricity offer is basic, Dodo’s biggest selling point is that it can conveniently provide all your home services. However, while bundled plans are intriguing, the potential downside is that it becomes harder to determine whether you’re really getting good value from each individual service or not. If you can, be sure to compare electricity, gas and broadband offers on their own merit.

Overall, Dodo offers a comparatively cheap and basic electricity and gas service. Does this bring its own problems? You will only really know how good or bad an energy company is after you’ve signed up, but to help you along the way, we suggest taking a look at our customer satisfaction ratings for electricity providers in your state.
