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

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.
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.
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.
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.”
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.
As we know, the COVID-19 lockdown began in early March, which saw many Aussies having to adjust to work life from the comfort of their couch or unfortunately, experience financial hardship for the very first time.
As Aussies across the country ease themselves back into work following the Christmas break, the Victorian government has been well ahead of the game, announcing its decision for the Victorian Default Offer (VDO).
While the winter chill is certain to send shivers up the spines of many Aussies, the dreaded July 1 energy price update may have a similar effect.
