How to compare gas plans on Mozo 

With so many residential gas providers operating in Australia it is no wonder that choosing a cheap plan can be confusing. Mozo cuts through the confusion to help you save time and money.

We’ve created an energy comparison service so that you can quickly and easily compare cheap gas plans in your area.

1. Get a recent bill handy - All we need is a few quick details like your postcode, household size and current usage and we'll be able to give you an estimate of some of the gas plans that are available in your area. If you don’t have a recent bill, we can provide you with an estimated gas quote.

2. Review results - You’ll instantly see the average price estimates for your postcode on the results screen. Mozo also publishes customer gas reviews of all providers listed on our site so that you can see what real customers are saying about their gas service before signing up.

3. Switch - Once you’ve chosen the best gas plan for you, it’s time to switch providers. You can complete your application direct from our service and once your account has been confirmed we’ll even notify your old provider. They will then do a final meter ready, issue you with your final bill. Rest assured there will be no interruption to your gas service.

How to understand gas plans 

Despite the fact that many of us use gas daily to cook, heat our homes and water, many Australians still aren’t 100% clear on how gas plans work and how our gas bills get calculated.

Similar to an electricity plan, your gas plan is made up of two charges: a fixed charge, also known as the daily supply charge and a usage charge.

The daily supply cost is the amount your gas retailer charges you to supply your home with gas on a daily basis. And because it is a fixed cost the amount does not change, regardless of how much gas your home uses. Your usage charge on the other hand is dependent on your household’s daily gas usage and is displayed as megajoules (MJ) on your bill. 

Both of these charges are combined to make up your gas plan, as well as any discounts that are available for either paying on time or having a direct debit set up. 

Choosing the right gas plan for you 

Whether it’s your first or fifth time comparing gas plans, knowing what makes a top gas plan is the trick to snatching up a great deal. While having both a low daily supply and usage charge is ideal, there are a few other features to compare, such as: 

  • Bill smoothing - Life is often unpredictable sometimes and can take a toll on your finances. Bill smoothing allows you to spread the estimated yearly cost of your gas bill over equal monthly, fortnightly or weekly installments, making the payments easier to manage. 
  • Contract type -  With the energy market changing everyday, the last thing you want is to be tied down into a contract, unable to switch if a better offer comes along or you need to move house. In this case, be sure the gas retailer you’d like to switch to does not ask customers to lock into a contract and better yet, doesn’t charge an exit fee! 
  • Applicable discounts - Many gas retailers offer discounts for paying on time or if you choose to pay your gas bill via direct debit, so if you’re looking to trim your gas bill any way you can, it’s worth looking into. 
  • Other charges - Aside from fees that may appear on your bill, such as a credit card payment processing fee, the retailer may charge a set up or connection fee.

Does Mozo compare gas plans in all Australian states?

We compare residential gas plans available in the following states and territories: Canberra, New South Wales, South Australia, South East Queensland and Victoria

The number of energy providers that are compared will depend on where your property is located as different energy providers offer their services in different areas.
For now, we do not compare gas providers in the Northern Territory, Tasmania or Western Australia.

Our database includes plans from a select range of gas providers and we do not compare every available gas plan in the market. Our service compares gas plans that are currently available for new customers from gas retailers. Your current gas plan could be cheaper than the plans that are now available.

Can I save money purchasing both gas and electricity from the same provider?

For a lot of Aussie households, it makes sense to kill two birds with one stone by opting to having your gas and electricity supplied by the same provider, which is commonly referred to as a ‘dual fuel’ plan. 

If you are thinking of signing up to a dual fuel plan, you’ll be happy to know many retailers offer specials and discounts for combining your utilities, which can help you save a few dollars. But before jumping onto a dual fuel plan, it’s still worth comparing gas and electricity separately, to ensure that you’ll be getting the best deal.

Gas comparison FAQs

Finding the cheapest gas plan and prices

To find a cheap gas plan in your area we’ll need to know the suburb or postcode where you currently live or where you will be moving to and the number of people in your household.

As we do not compare every gas plan in the market, the deals on our site may not be the cheapest available. We compare current market offers and if you are on an older plan, there is a chance that you could be on a cheaper rate than what is available now. In many instances, the longer it has been since you’ve switched plans, the more you’ll be paying, which is why we recommend that if you want to make sure you’re always on a cheap plan you compare your gas service annually.

Does the gas price estimates include discounts?

You can tell us whether you want us to include discounts in your gas cost estimates by filtering your preferences on our results page. We include discounts for paying on time and direct debits as well as pensioner concessions.

I am moving and don’t have a recent gas bill.

We can give you an estimate for the household size and your payment preferences based on the average usage in the suburb you are moving to.

Are renters able to switch gas providers? 

If you live in a regulated market, like New South Wales, Victoria or South-East Queensland and are responsible for paying the gas bill on your rental property, then you should have your choice of gas provider. Check out our full renters guide to switching for more information.

Where can I learn about saving on my gas bill and lowering my energy usage?

In addition to our gas price comparison tool, we’ve got a range of information written by our energy experts on our site from helpful gas guides to energy saving tips.

How does Mozo make money?

Mozo makes money by helping energy providers connect with customers, like you, who are looking for a great energy deal. Most importantly our service is totally free to use and it is the energy providers competing for your business that pay Mozo, not you!

Mozo shares a fee with our partner, CIMET, who helps provide this service. This fee is paid when you complete an application and switch energy providers using our service. Mozo may also earn revenue when energy providers purchase display advertising on our site or when we help them use the all the great data we’ve collected.

Great costs for gas usage.

There would be some cons for this energy provider but they're constantly working on fixing issues and I'm glad I'm part of this company. Very fair gas prices and discounts for pensioners as well.

Rooftop solar

Rooftop solar welcomed in record numbers thanks to rebates and interest free loans

As more households embrace renewable energy, new figures have revealed that solar photovoltaic (PV) systems are being installed at record numbers across the country. According to the ACT Government’s 2019/20 annual feed-in tariff report, there are more than 28,000 solar generators in the Territory, an increase of more than 17% during the previous financial year. What’s more impressive is that rooftop solar within the ACT has produced more than 135 megawatts during the 2019/20 financial year. Plus, more than 47,000 MWh came from over 10,000 solar PVs that were provided by the ACT Government’s Feed-In Tariff (FiT) scheme, an incentive from 2009 that was designed to boost solar uptake and reduce solar system prices altogether.  “It’s great to see incentives like these are giving the average household the opportunity to generate their own electricity and save on their energy bills,” said Mozo Director, Kirsty Lamont.

Victoria energy price update who s cutting prices in 2021

With a sudden strict four month lockdown it’s safe to say Victorians haven’t had an easy 2020. But with the Essential Services Commission (ESC) announcing its final energy prices determination for 2021, the new year may already be off to a better start. The ESC has announced that the Victorian Default Offer (VDO) will fall by 10% for residential customers and 14% for small businesses customers. That equates to a bill reduction of $159 per year and $916 a year, respectively.As a quick recap, the VDO, which came into effect 1 July 2019, is a default energy offer available to all customers in Victoria who choose to not engage in the energy market - that is, comparing offers and switching plans. The VDO also replaced standing offers and capped prices, preventing retailers from charging expensive plans to customers on these offers. “The fall in the default offer is being mainly driven by lower wholesale electricity purchase costs, with lower prices likely to assist many Victorian households and small businesses in recovering from the impacts of the coronavirus pandemic,” said Essential Services Commission pricing director, Marcus Crudden.The state’s economic regulator estimates that these price reductions will provide some much needed bill relief to around 125,000 households and 40,000 small businesses.

Energy myths

Articles

From rates to tariffs and random fees, it’s no wonder energy bills have a reputation of being difficult to comprehend. Unfortunately, it often means many Aussies pick up a few myths on the way to understanding their energy bill. So, if one of your goals in the new year is to get on top of your personal finance, we’ve jotted down four energy bill myths to be aware of.

The new year s resolution that could help you save big on energy bills

With less than three weeks to go until we welcome in the new year, many Aussies may have already begun thinking about the goals they want to achieve in 2021. And for some, that can mean giving their home an energy efficiency upgrade. According to CSIRO building simulation research lead, Anthony Wright, the average Aussie household is rated only 2.2 stars out of 10 for energy efficiency. However, if the average Sydney or Melbourne home were to bump that figure up to a 4.9 stars, they could save up to $480 a year on their energy bills.When it comes to improving energy efficiency around the house, you might be surprised to learn that substantial savings can be made just by making small improvements. For instance, draught sealing and filling gaps or cracks around windows and doors are a great place to start. Other options include updating energy guzzling appliances for energy saving ones or installing external blinds to block out heat. But for the Aussies who don’t mind taking things to the next level, upgrading hot water systems, air conditioning and other appliances could deliver annual savings of $900, says Wright. “It’s also worthwhile getting an energy rate involved early,” Wright said in a recent interview with The New Daily. “It can seem like it costs, but it will pay back in comfort and energy bill savings in spades over time, as they can do a before-and-after rating, and also provide consultation on tweaking your renovation as you go.”

Energy debt

Many households and small businesses still battling energy debt

When Australia officially entered lockdown in March, thousands of people and small businesses were left stranded with a reduced income or forced to shut down, struggling to keep up with regular expenses, like their energy bill.  And according to the Australian Energy Regulator’s (AER) Annual Retail Markets Report, those households and small businesses still remain in ‘energy debt’ to their retailers. The report found a sharp increase in energy debt amongst small businesses, with the total jumping from $35 million in March 2020 to $45 million in June 2020. For residential customers, long-term electricity debt reportedly increased by 21% between 31 March and 2 November to $124.5 million. Almost 60,000 households also took advantage of their retailers' offer to defer energy bills for a time, providing some breathing room. “If you are struggling to pay your bills, talk to your retailer about your debt – even if you can’t afford to pay anything right now,” said AER chair, Clare Savage. “You won’t be disconnected, and your retailer will work with you to set up a plan and help you start paying off your debt.”And it looks like most Aussies were satisfied with their retailer’s support, as there were 29% fewer complaints made to retailers and 26% fewer complaints to the ombudsman since the 2018/19 financial year.
