About Dodo

You may remember Dodo as that famous bird with the catchy slogan ‘internet that flies’. Nowadays, Dodo has its nest in energy as well as telco, offering a range of deals for customers who bundle their services. Plans are generally very basic, but in a good way, as there are no confusing discounts, as the retailer tends to just focus on its rates. Some key features include:

  • Variable rate plans with no fixed contracts or exit fees
  • Moderate feed-in tariffs available for solar customers
  • Retails natural gas in NSW and VIC with incentives for bundling with electricity plans

About Kogan Energy

Online retail giant, Kogan, is another company that has diversified into the energy space, operating in NSW, VIC, QLD and SA. Like Dodo, Kogan Energy steers clear of discounts and incentives, instead promoting plans that are price competitive with ‘simple’ low rates. Another similarity between the two is that Kogan Energy usually only offers one plan per state. Other notable features include:

  • App available that allows customers to pay bills, monitor energy usage and more
  • Largely an online business with no paper billing
  • Customers must pay by BPAY, credit card or direct debit

Which energy provider should I sign up to?

While Dodo and Kogan Energy both state their claim as no-nonsense providers, it’ll often come down to what you’re most comfortable with. For example, if you’re after a company with an online business model and a handy app, then Kogan Energy may be ticking all the right boxes. But, if you’re not too fussed about the digital side of things, then Dodo could be your go-to choice.

In terms of price, there isn’t much in it with these two brands, which is why looking at all features of a plan is important. Rest assure you can compare your options from many more electricity providers by following the link below.
