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.

thank goodness for the fair go discount

I moved into my current rental just as winter started last year. I was gifted an old gas heater, it was not energy efficient at all. I was absolutely shocked at my first bill of $460something dollars. I was not expecting anything like that and was overwhelmed to say the least. I was informed of the fair go discount by a third party (35% off your gas bill for 2 years) which has been deducted from my future gas bills. I think it would have been beneficial if the person I first talked to at alinta had of told me about the fair go discount. I had told her this was the first time in years I was out living on my own and that I wasn't currently working. It feels like a no brainer that she should have informed me about it.
