Best gas providers NSW

Gas prices in NSW are on the rise and if you’ve got gas heating, hot water or other appliances that work on gas, it is worth comparing gas companies to see whether you could save by switching.

In New South Wales, you’re not limited to your existing gas provider, you can choose who you connect with. It can be the same company that offers your electricity service or it could be a completely separate provider. Mozo can help you to compare gas deals in your area.

If you are after deals for power, head over to our NSW electricity hub. 

Where is gas available in NSW?

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.

If you already have a gas connection and you’re wondering which gas providers offer services in your area, you can use the Mozo gas comparison tool at the top of this page to find a range of available providers in your postcode.

NSW gas providers, what are my choices?

  • ActweAGL

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.

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!

Meet deferit the platform that pays your energy bill for you

Covid-19 has seen many Aussie households experience financial stress like never before, but with the help of a new innovative platform many are getting the support they need. It’s called Deferit, a bill payment platform that helps people pay their bills on time and avoid any late payment fees or stress. Aussies who are struggling to pay their energy bills on time can sign up to the platform, upload their bill and Deferit will pay the bill immediately on the customer’s behalf. The customer will then have to pay the cost back in four equal installments. Deferit works just like Netflix, where users are only charged a monthly fee of $5.99 when they use the service. There’s no interest or any other fees charged during the process and, according to Defetit, there is no comparable product on the Australian market.

Shared accommodation how can i save on my energy bills

Whether it’s to save on expenses or to have some company, having a roommate is one of the most common ways to live across the country.  But sometimes different routines and habits can clash, even when it comes to energy consumption or conservation. According to new research by Origin Energy, 63% of Aussies who live in shared accommodation believe they could be doing more to reduce their energy consumption. Aussies living with their partner were reportedly more mindful of their energy use, with 84% noting cost as their main motivator for wanting to cut down on their energy use.  However, despite the good intentions, 29% felt that their housemates aren’t good at conserving their energy use and are using it excessively. “Having a roommate can teach us how to have difficult conversations, from splitting bills to sharing space. So if you’re looking to save on your energy bill and feel as though your roommate could be doing better with their usage, it might be time to sit down and have an honest chat,” said Mozo Director, Kirsty Lamont. “Getting on the same page could involve brainstorming areas where you can cut back, like the laundry or heating.”

Queensland government announce 50 electricity bill credit

Yesterday, the Queensland government announced it would be introducing a $50 electricity bill credit for households, due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The $50 credit will be added onto a customer’s next electricity bill and is expected to reach two million Queensland homeowners, tenants and customers who receive an electricity bill from their landlord. Queensland Energy Minister, Dr Anthony Lynham has also confirmed that another $50 credit will be distributed in 2021.According to Lyhnam, the government’s ability to provide these credits is a result of the dividends from publicly-owned power assets. “Queensland has the energy trifecta: lowest average prices on the eastern seaboard, reliable supply and a planned transition to a renewable future,” he said.“Unlike other states, the dividends from our publicly-owned companies flow not to multinational shareholders overseas, but to Queensland families across the state.”This power bill relief package is the second to come out due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Earlier this year, the QLD government announced it would be releasing a $300 million relief package, providing utility bill credits of up to $200 to households.

Agl accelerates electric vehicle boom in australia with new subscription service

Driving around in an electric vehicle (EV) might seem like a long shot for many Aussies because of the pricetag. But thanks to a brand new service from AGL, taking an EV out for a spin has just become a bit more feasible. The energy giant will today be piloting its AGL Next Electric Vehicle Subscription Service. AGL Next is the retailer's new initiative for test driving new programs, technology and partnerships for energy and more. In order to provide the EV Subscription Service, AGL has partnered with car subscription service, Carbar and EV charging supplier, JET Charge. According to AGL, this service is the first of its kind to be offered in Australia. “The market for EVs in Australia is continuing to grow but we know many customers may still be reluctant to buy an EV outright due to price, concerns about technological change or access to charging facilities,” said AGL executive general manager Future Business & Technology, John Chambers.“AGL’s EV Subscription Service eliminates these concerns allowing customers to access the latest technology as it hits the market.”Those who are eligible for the EV Subscription Service will have access to a range of leading EV brands, such as Tesla, Jaguar, Hyundai and Nissan. “It’s a convenient option, with the latest EV model delivered to the customer’s home and at-home charging facilities installed but with the flexibility to swap, upgrade or cancel the service at any time.“We know customers are becoming more attuned with subscription services which provide all the benefits but none of the hassle - this is the Netflix of electric vehicles.”
