Best gas providers QLD

If you’re not satisfied with the tariffs you’re paying for your gas plan, you should take a few minutes to check if you can save some money by switching your gas plan or provider. Since July 2007, Queensland natural gas customers (other than those in Roma and Dalby) are entitled to choose the retailer they want to purchase their natural gas from. However, at the moment only Origin Energy, Red Energy and AGL offer services to residential gas customers.

Moving to QLD?

Mozo can relieve some of your moving load by helping you compare your gas plan or dual fuel options. Start your search by typing in your postcode or suburb into Mozo’s gas comparison tool. Don’t worry if you don’t have a previous bill to work with, we’ve got data on the available providers and average energy costs across all Queensland postcodes and can work out how much you’re likely to pay based on the size of your household.

Who is the best gas provider in QLD?

Depending where you live, you can choose between gas providers in Queensland such as AGL, Red Energy or Origin Energy. Which provider is the best choice for you would depend who provides gas in your suburb and on your household’s energy usage patterns. You can read other Queenslander’s opinions in our gas reviews section. This is where real customers have rated their gas provider on different aspects ranging from price, customer service through to trust.

What are the features that I should look for in a gas plan?

Apart from the regular tariff of your energy plan, you can also consider the following factors before deciding on a gas provider:

  • Deals and discounts. Generally, gas providers try to offer you incentives so that you choose them as your preferred provider. It’s important to consider these deals and see which one is most useful for you. For instance, if you’re unlikely to always make your payment on time, you wouldn’t want to go for a plan that gives a discount for that.
  • Limited offers: Gas providers in QLD want business at certain times of the year and therefore come up with limited offers to attract new customers. But you need to make sure that with any special offer you first compare the plans based on the ongoing price and then look at the related incentive. There’s no point in getting $25 off your first gas bill if that provider is actually going to cost you $50 more every quarter than the cheapest plan.
  • Contract duration. While deals and offers are important features, it is also crucial for you to understand whether you want to sign up for a long or open contract. Fixed contracts might have a discount attached to them but if you exit the contract before completion you may need to pay a termination fee.

Is it better to get a dual fuel service rather than just gas from one provider?

In Queensland you have the option of going for an individual gas plan or a dual fuel package. While the providers may offer a discount if you opt for a bundled service, it may not necessarily be the cheapest option overall. It’s best to compare both individual as well as bundled plans to see which option is best for you. However, if you want to prioritise convenience and think it would be easier to deal with one provider instead of two, it is worth considering a bundled gas and electricity package.

How can I reduce my gas bill?

Firstly, you can reduce your gas bill by simply reducing your gas usage at home. If you want to look for easy ways to do that, head over to our energy savings tips hub. You’re sure to find some interesting ideas to alter your gas consumption in a more efficient manner. Secondly, you could also potentially lower your gas bills by switching your provider. If you haven’t changed your plan in a long time, the possibility of finding a more cost effective plan is quite high.

How long does it take to switch gas providers in QLD?

When you choose to switch gas providers in Queensland it can take you anything between a few days up to three months when you receive your first bill from your new gas provider. This mainly depends on when your meter was last read. For those who are moving homes, the process is slightly different and typically takes 2 to 5 business days for the provider to move your account to the new address. If you need to move your gas account on an urgent basis, you can call and request the provider to transfer the account faster.

Will I have to pay a fee to switch my gas provider?

If you are on an open contract, you won’t need to pay extra money to switch your gas provider in Queensland. But, if you are on a fixed term account, you might need to pay an exit fee to terminate the contract before the decided date. When you move your plan to a new address, some providers may charge a connection fee for setting up the service. This cost is usually added in your first bill. You should check with the provider for the exact specifications before you finalise the transfer.

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.

*To calculate the potential savings figure Mozo identified the lowest plan provided by Mozo and highest cost plan in each energy distributor state region based on the average residential usage in that state. The costs data used across the state is current at 17 August 2020. Not all plans will be available via the Mozo energy comparison service. Your individual usage and location, along with which plan you are on and which plans are available on the Mozo site at any given time, will vary the savings you may be able to achieve using the Mozo energy comparison service.

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 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.

Energy price updates

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.
