May 2020

Alinta Energy

alinta energy logo

Alinta Energy has launched gas in Queensland with the ‘Home Deal’ and ‘Sports Pack’ products. Home Deal is a no discount plan, offering competitive variable rates, while Sports Pack is only available to customers on an active Sports Pack electricity plan.

Momentum Energy

In Victoria, Momentum has changed the rates on its ‘Move Mate’ and ‘Momentum Gas’ plans, resulting in a significant price increase. Its new cheapest offer in VIC is the ‘Self Serve’ product, which is available to customers who sign up online and pay by direct debit. Momentum has also introduced a plan called ‘Bill Boss’ in VIC, which is aimed at households with smart meters.

GloBird Energy

GloBird Energy has lowered its usage rates on the ‘EasySave’ and ‘GloSave’ gas plans in Victoria, making them currently one of the cheapest deals in the state. EasySave has no discounts, just low rates, while GloSave gives customers discounts for paying on time and by paying by direct debit.

AGL

In Western Australia, AGL has reduced its discount on two of its gas market offers, ‘Set and Forget’ and ‘Savers’. While the discounts now apply to both usage and supply charges instead of just the usage portion, the discount reduction has seen a significant price increase for both plans.

April 2020

Simply Energy

Simply Energy logo

Simply Energy has increased the pay on time discounts on each of its three market offers in Victoria. Simply Plus recorded the biggest discount increase from 12% to 22%, making it now one of the cheapest gas deals in VIC. The conditional discount on Simply AFL and Simply Movies changed from 5% to 10%. The pay on time discounts apply to both usage and supply charges.

AGL

AGL has decreased its online sign-up discounts in NSW and QLD from $75 to $25 on both the Essentials Saver and Essentials Plus gas plans. This has resulted in price increases in NSW and QLD by $50. AGL still remains competitively priced in both states, however.

Momentum Energy

In Victoria, Momentum Energy has decreased the rates of two of its plans, namely ‘Momentum Gas’ and ‘Move Mate’. Both of these plans come with a $50 online sign-up credit and now work out slightly cheaper than its ‘Self Serve’ gas product in VIC.

March 2020

Click Energy

Logo for Click Energy

Click Energy has introduced a new gas plan in Victoria, named ‘Flora Gas’, which is currently the provider’s cheapest gas deal in VIC. Flora Gas has no exit fees or discounts, just low rates. This deal comes with a monthly billing option. Click Energy has also removed its ‘Banksia Plus’ gas plan from VIC.

Sumo

In NSW, Sumo has introduced a small connection fee to its natural gas plans. As a result, Sumo’s plans in NSW, including Sumo Select, Sumo Lite and Sumo Saver have increased slightly in price.

Origin Energy

origin-energy-logo

The price of Origin Energy’s Max Saver plan in Victoria has reduced due to its conditional discount increasing from 12% to 20%. The Max Saver product has been renamed to ‘Max Saver – Online Special’ across VIC, NSW and QLD. Origin’s ‘Flexi’ product has also increased its discount in VIC, NSW and QLD, all of which are now slightly cheaper. There have been no gas changes to Origin’s plans in WA or SA.

February 2020

GloBird Energy

GloBird Energy has increased the prices of its two gas market offers in Victoria for households connected to the Australian Gas Network (AGN). The EasySave and GloSave products have experienced a notable rise in annual overall price. GloSave still has a 5% pay on time discount, plus an additional 1% discount for paying by direct debit, while EasySave requires customers to opt in for direct debit with credit card and receive bills and communication electronically.
