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.

Last week, the Australian Capital Territory government announced it would be expanding its ACT Home Assessment Energy Scheme to renters. The ACT Home Assessment Energy Scheme is an initiative that provides free in-house energy assessments to discover areas where households can save on their energy bills. “It can be very hard for renters to make major energy-saving changes to their home. By expanding this program, we are able to provide renters with tailored information,”  said Minister for Climate Change and Sustainability, Shane Rattenbury. But while this is good news for renters in the ACT, it doesn’t mean the rest of the country should miss out on energy savings insights. So we’ve jotted down five energy saving tips for renters that can help keep costs down all year round.

Energy savings vdo to be extended to all vic customers

In July last year, the Victorian energy market went under intensive reform to improve prices and transparency for residents and was called the Victorian Default Offer (VDO).The VDO imposed a price cap on standing offers, which meant that retailers could no longer charge exorbitant prices for these energy plans. All previous customers on standing offer plans were then rolled onto the VDO. This week the Essential Service Commision (ESC) announced that from 1 September 2020, it will be extending the VDO to energy customers living in embedded networks, like caravans, retirement villages and even small businesses. According to the ESC, more than 104,000 customers will benefit from this reform. “Embedded network customers have not been fully covered by the same price protections as other Victorians. This ensures they now have access to a fair deal with significant savings for some,” said ESC pricing director, Marcus Crudden. Crudden said customers within embedded networks are expected to save between $180 to $360 annually, while small businesses could see savings of between $900 to $2,220.

Energy prices which retailer offers the cheapest electricity plan

Within the next few weeks, many Aussie households are expected to receive their latest energy bill. And for some, it won’t be good news. In fact, according to Mozo research the average household is expected to fork out an extra $88 a month due to an increase in electricity usage because of the Covid-19 lockdown. But there may be a silver lining on the horizon, as many retailers are acknowledging the financial strain the Covid-19 pandemic has had on Aussie wallets by announcing price decreases. On 1 July 2020, close to 20 retailers announced they would be cutting the electricity prices for customers located in either New South Wales, South Australia, South-East Queensland or the Australian Capital Territory. And in some instances, retailers have vowed to cut prices in all three states, like Powershop. “We are pleased to be able to bring some much needed relief to households in NSW, SE-QLD and SA, especially during winter and given many of our customers are spending more time at home, which may lead to higher power bills,” said Powershop CEO, Jason Stein. “Our existing residential customers saw our prices decrease on average by approximately 14.2% in South Australia, 8.7% in New South Wales and 7.5% in South East Queensland.” Other retailers cutting prices across NSW, SE-QLD and SA included energy giant, Origin Energy, Simply Energy and newcomer, Kogan Energy.

Energy bill anxiety how to keep costs down this winter

While things might be a little different to this time last year, one thing that hasn’t changed is the winter chill. And unfortunately, as a large number of Aussies spend the majority of their time indoors, a jaw-dropping energy bill is to be expected. According to recent data by energy company Jemena, our electricity usage has jumped by 16% compared to this time last year, while businesses experienced a fall in electricity usage of between 10% - 12%. With Aussies having to tighten their wallets to manage expenses during the pandemic, a higher bill is far from ideal. According to Professor Sara Wikinson at University of Technology Sydney, some households are doing everything they can to soften the blow. She said that older Aussies are reducing their consumption by either cutting back their use of heating appliances, going to bed fully clothed or even skipping showers. "People are spending almost all their time at home, which is obviously pushing up their energy consumption. And [their] ability to hang out somewhere warm in the mall or community centre has gone," Wilkinson said. However, Powershop chief executive Jason Stein said that drastic measures are not always necessary and that simple savings can be made around the home. “With Australians spending more time at home this winter, energy bills may be higher. [But] there are some simple things you can do to try and keep your energy bills down and help save money,” Stein said. He recommended setting “your heater thermostat between 18–20°C in living areas, [as] every extra degree adds 10% to your heating bill.”“Switching off the game console after use could save a household of four up to $193 a year,” Stein said. Other tips include ditching your dryer for a clothes horse, investing in door snakes to plug draughts and improve insulation. And remember to switch off lights when you leave a room. If you’d like more energy savings tips that’ll not only keep you warm but keep costs down this winter, head on over to our energy savings tips hub!
