Gas is available throughout New South Wales. If you want to connect gas to your property you can find out if it is available in your street by visiting the Australian Gas Network website.

How much does gas cost in NSW?

The cost of your gas service will depend on where you live and how much gas you consume.

Every gas bill in NSW will have:

  • supply charges: this is a fee that you pay to have your gas service connected to your home. It will be priced at a per day rate for the billing period.
  • usage charges: charged per megajoule of usage. The tariff you pay will depend on the type of gas meter that is installed at your property.

To get an estimate of the cost of gas for your home, plug in your postcode into the comparison tool on this page.

What should I look for when comparing gas plans?

In addition to the tariffs and supply charges there are other considerations when choosing a new gas plan.

Look out for:

  • special offers. Many gas providers in New South Wales want your business and at certain times of the year offer special discounts or deals to new customers. Just make sure that with any special offer you first compare the plans based on cost and then compare on the best incentive. You don’t want to find yourself signing up for a deal to get $25 off your first gas bill if that provider is actually going to cost you $100 more a quarter than the cheapest plan.
  • Conditional discounts. Gas providers are keen for you to pay your bills on time so many providers in NSW have incentives that give you discounts off your bill if you pay your gas bill on time or have direct debit bill payment set up.
  • Contract length. Some gas providers will give you the option to fix your contract length in order to get higher discounts. Only think about fixing if you are sure you will not move or need to break the contract, otherwise you could be up for exit fees.

Other FAQs about Gas in NSW

Should I bundle my gas service with my electricity provider?

In New South Wales, there are a number of energy providers that offer both gas and electricity services and will give you a discount for dual fuel plans. While this can be a convenient option as you only have to deal with the one supplier, it may not necessarily be your cheapest option. Be sure to compare dual fuel plans as well as single service plans if price is a major factor in your decision making.

Are there ways I can reduce my gas bill?

You can reduce your gas bill by using less gas or switching gas plans. Chances are that if you’ve been on the same gas plan for more than 12 months, there is a newer plan in the market which could help you to save money. Mozo’s price comparison tool is free to use so why not try it now and see how much you can save?

How long will it take to switch my gas supply?

It will depend on where you live in NSW and when your last meter read was. The switching process will take place on your next meter read. You can sign up for your new service now, but you may not receive your first bill from your new provider for several months after you switch.

Moving house? You can usually get a new gas account and service set up within a few days.

Will I have to pay anything to switch gas providers?

If you are on an open contract with your current gas supplier you will not have to pay anything to switch. Some fixed rate gas plans in NSW will have exit fees if you switch before the end of the contract. Call your current provider to see if you will need to pay any exit fees before switching.

For anyone moving house or renting a new property, you may be required to pay a connection fee at your new address. Generally this is not an upfront cost, it will be added to your first gas bill.

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.

Energy new year

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.
