While Western Australians may not be able to choose their electricity provider, natural gas is a different story, with gas retailers ramping up the competition in the form of big discounts and good old-fashioned customer service. As gas rates in WA remain price capped, finding a suitable deal for your home has never been easier.

Enter Kleenheat and Alinta Energy, two reputable brands with discounts headlining most of their products. Although Alinta is the more established of the two in WA, does that mean better gas prices or deals? Well, there’s only one way to find out who trumps the other and we’ve laid out every little detail to help.

About Kleenheat

With its headquarters in Perth, Kleenheat has forged a name for good gas deals in WA, becoming a serious challenger to Alinta Energy. Kleenheat falls under the Westfarmers banner, which includes popular retail brands like Bunnings and Kmart, so it has credibility. This gas supplier looks to big conditional discounts, as well as customer rewards such as gift cards and flybuys points to sweeten its deals. Some of its key features include:

  • Big discounts off usage charges when satisfying conditions (i.e. paying on time by direct debit)
  • Monthly billing option on some plans
  • Locally based call centre in WA

Should I sign up to Kleenheat or Alinta Energy?

Unlike electricity in the west, customers can choose their preferred gas provider based on what’s most important to their needs. In the case of Kleenheat and Alinta, both options are perfectly fine, and with gas prices capped in WA, usually it comes down to who’s offering the biggest discounts. Like always, however, scan the fine print of a plan before signing up, and check to see if the discount applies to usage charges only, or both usage and supply costs.
