Best gas providers South Australia

Are you getting tired of paying unreasonably high gas bills? Well, if you live in South Australia, the good news is that you have access to a deregulated energy market. In simple words, this means that unlike some other Australian states, SA allows you to choose your gas provider.

There was a time when comparing all the different gas plans was a long and tedious process, but that’s not true anymore. Mozo’s digital energy comparison tool can help you compare gas plans in a matter of minutes. Just enter your postcode and our energy calculator will list out some of the gas plans in your area based on your usage habits.

I’m moving to SA, how should I look for the best gas plans?

You can kick off your search for the best gas plans in South Australia right here with Mozo. Type in the postcode or suburb of where you are moving to in South Australia and our energy comparison tool will scan through the data we’ve collected for that location. We can then give you a shortlist of the some gas retailers in your area so you can choose a plan that will be best for your household requirements.

How many gas providers can I choose from in SA?

The number of SA gas providers you can choose from will depend on where you live and which retailers operate in your postcode. You can get a list of the best providers in your area using Mozo’s energy comparison tool. Some of the gas providers that you can compare using our service are:

  • AGL
  • Alinta Energy
  • Energy Australia
  • Origin Energy

While we do not compare every single plan on the market, we certainly try to compare a wide selection of the plans that are available if you sign up as a new customer.

Who is the best gas provider in SA?

It would not be possible to pin down one provider as the best across the entire state because every household would have its own unique energy usage and requirements. But that does not mean that there can’t be one perfect plan for your home. And Mozo is here to help you.  We can shortlist gas providers in South Australia by focusing on your priorities, for example, whether you want a single gas plan or you would rather go for a dual fuel service. So based on different factors such as cost, customer service and convenience, you can get a list of the gas retailers in your area through Mozo’s energy comparison tool. Once you’ve got this list, read the gas reviews that we’ve specially collected from gas customers in SA so you can have access to the unbiased opinion of real people who have used these services before.

What are the top things to keep in mind while choosing a good gas plan?

There are a number of factors that can make or break a gas deal. Here’s a quick checklist to refer to as you go through the gas providers in SA:

  • Single service or dual fuel package. One of the most important decisions that you will have to make while choosing a gas provider is whether to go for for a single gas plan or a dual energy service. While some providers only offer gas services if you also have an electricity plan with them, others offer discounts for getting both gas and electricity accounts with them. If you are looking for convenience, then it’s a good idea to have one point of contact for both services. But if budget is more important to you, then it’s worthwhile to check both single and dual options to make sure you’ve got the cheapest deal.
  • Special offers. In a competitive market, most providers will try to grab you attention by offering special or limited time offers for new customers. Of course these deals are meant to sound tempting, but be sure to make your calculations before you sign up for anything. A $75 discount on your first bill is not worth it if you’ll end up spending $100 more than the cheapest plan every quarter.
  • Conditional discounts. You can choose between a number of conditional offers, such as a pay on time discount that gets you a certain amount off your bill every time you make a payment on time or set up a direct debit account. As with any shopping deals, make sure this discount is relevant to you because if you’re unlikely to stick with timelines, you may just end up paying a higher tariff. Think about which deal is most suited to your financial lifestyle and then take a final call.
  • Contract length. This is an important consideration especially for renters or those who need to move often. A long term contract may have a related discount or cheaper rates but you need to weigh it out against a termination fee in case you need to exit your account before the contract actually ends.

How much does gas cost in SA?

The cost of your gas service in South Australia depends on your location and how much gas you consume. Your gas bill will have:

  • Supply charges. This is a fee that you need to pay in order to have your gas service connected to your property. It will be charged at a per day rate for the billing period.
  • Usage charges. These are charged per megajoule of usage in your home.

Other SA gas FAQs

Is there a way for me to reduce my gas bill?

Yes, in fact, there are two ways that you can try to reduce your gas bill. Firstly, if you’ve got gas heating, hot water or other appliances that work on gas, you can try reducing your overall gas usage. Don’t know where to start? Check out our energy savings tips hub for some inspiration.

Secondly, you can lower your gas bill by switching your plan. Compare the gas providers in SA and see if your provider is offering a better deal or if you can save money by switching to a new gas retailer. If you haven’t changed your plan in a long time, you would be surprised by the number of options you might have.

How easy is it to switch gas providers in SA? Does it take a long time?

You should be able to switch your gas provider in South Australia quite easily. All you’ll generally have to do is fill up on online form, pick a plan and confirm the switch or do the same thing over the phone. Your new provider will take care of the rest. But, the time that it will take for you to start receiving bills from your new provider will depend on when your meter was last read. It can take anything from a few days to three months.

For those who are moving to a new address, providers generally need 2-5 business days notice to move your gas account. Do check on any specific requirements that your provider may have, for example, access to the energy meter so that you don’t end up moving into a house with no gas!

Will I have to pay extra to switch my gas provider?

This will depend on the terms of your energy contract. If you are on an open contract, you are free to switch your gas provider in SA without having to pay any extra charges. But, if you have chosen a fixed term plan, you might need to pay an exit fee to end the contract early. If you are moving to a new home, many gas retailers charge a connection fee for setting up the service. This cost will generally be added to your first 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!

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.
