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.

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.

Mike Cannon-Brookes makes a play for AGL with an eye toward green energy

The billionaire behind tech company Atlassian and part-owner of the South Sydney Rabbitohs has shocked the nation with the news that he would lead a group in bid to acquire AGL energy.The move occurred in the afternoon of Sunday the 20th of February, with AGL announcing to the world that it had rejected the unsolicited offer, worth approximately $8bn in cash. After initially throwing cold water on the idea, spokesmen for the Energy company have since come out and clarified that the offer was seen as a lowball -  offering nearly no premium on the price of shares.The AGL board determined that: “the Unsolicited Proposal materially undervalues the company on a change of control basis and is not in the best interests of AGL Energy shareholders.”Cannon-Brookes is already invested significantly in green electricity, his portfolio includes stake in a solar farm project in the Northern Territory, and renewables enterprise Genex. His ambitious plan to buy AGL would supposedly see Australia’s largest energy company achieve a net-zero carbon rating by 2030, just under eight years from now.
