Powershop claims victory as best-rated gas supplier in Victoria

When it comes to energy in Victoria, most of the hype is around the electricity companies and their big promises about big savings. But it’s important not to lose sight of what you pay for gas – because getting a good deal on your natural gas supply is just as important. Gas plays an important role in the lives of most Victorian families, but it’s something that’s easy to take for granted – until your next gas bill comes in! Complaining about constantly rising power costs is something we all do, but not all of us are proactive in comparing providers to try and secure a better deal, often because it’s perceived to be too difficult and ultimately a fruitless exercise. But it doesn’t have to be – and can be well worth the effort. To make the process easier, Canstar Blue produces an annual review of gas suppliers in Victoria to find out which are keeping their customers happy – and which are not! Read on for details.

This year, more than 1,700 households in Melbourne and across Victoria have given us their opinions of their gas suppliers, with their feedback reflected by the star ratings table you see above. 10 major gas providers feature in the results – judged on factors including customer service, tools & advice, bill & cost clarity and value for money – and there is a clear divide between suppliers big and small. Our aim is to give you as much information as possible to help you make an informed decision about your gas retailer. This is what we found:

Red Energy

Red Energy Logo

Red Energy is owned by renewable energy generation company Snowy Hydro, along with its sister brand Lumo Energy. Red Energy’s main selling point is its partnership with airline Qantas, which sees customers pocket frequent flyer points for every dollar they spend on energy. Two Red Energy plans include Qantas points, with up to seven points available for every $1 spent on energy, in addition to an initial windfall of 15,000 points should you sign up for both electricity and gas with Red. The provider’s other plan includes access to Red Energy Rewards – a loyal scheme that brings savings on things like movie tickets, eating out and hotels etc. While Red Energy offers a modest pay on time discount, it’s another retailer that attempts to keep things nice and easy for prospective customers. But as rates are variable, you’ll have to watch out for any unexpected price changes.

  • Red Energy recorded four stars for overall satisfaction this year, while also earning four stars for its customer service, value for money, bill & cost clarity and environmental sustainability. It got three stars for online tools & advice but managed a five-star rating for ease of sign-up.

Momentum Energy

Owned by renewable energy generation company Hydro Tasmania, Momentum Energy is a champion of green energy and helping Australian consumers make energy-efficient decisions. It’s also an advocate of keeping things relatively simple for prospective customers, steering clear of the big conditional discounts offered by some retailers and instead just focusing on fairly competitive rates. In Victoria, Momentum has four main residential electricity offers, and three simple products for gas customers. Like its electricity deals – which include specific plans for renters and solar customers – Momentum’s gas plans are similar, with no discounts to be seen. Momentum’s approach to energy retail – and its obvious focus on renewables – has clearly seen it win over lots of Victorian customers. It also performed well in our 2019 review of electricity providers in Victoria, finishing fourth out of 13 in the overall rankings.

  • Momentum Energy rated four stars for its customer service, bill & cost clarity, focus on environmental sustainability, value for money and overall satisfaction. It got three stars for ease of sign-up and online tools & advice.

This comes without any conditional discounts, just reasonable rates. There is no lock in contract or exit fees. The second gas offer comes with slightly higher usage and supply charges but with the added bonus of a 12 -month Kayo Basic subscription.  Ranked fourth in two years in a row, Alinta Energy is currently rated best in our QLD electricity comparison.

AGL

AGL Logo

Energy giant AGL gives Victorians two gas plans to choose from, one coming in with fixed rates and the other variable. The retailer’s flagship offer now comes with no discounts but variable rates and access to flybuys points for signing up online. Its other plan is similar, though it has fixed rates on a 12 month no lock-in contract. It may not have the diverse range of products as some of its competitors, but AGL’s biggest selling points are its ‘value add’ incentives, including access to AGL Rewards and the opportunity to collect flybuys points for every dollar spent on energy.

  • Placed at the bottom of our VIC gas ratings last year, AGL managed to improve its position to fifth this year, achieving four stars for overall satisfaction, bill & cost clarity, environmental sustainability, customer service, ease of sign-up and online tools & advice. It got three stars for value for money.

Origin Energy has three or four different gas offers for Victorian households to pick from, depending on personal preferences and circumstances. The biggest conditional discount comes with direct debit payments and email bills, while smaller guaranteed discounts are on offer for those who prefer to do nothing other than pay their bills. In both cases, discounts come off the whole bill (gas usage and supply charges), and there are 12-month benefit periods. Rates are variable. Origin also has a gas plan with no discounts, just competitive rates with an ongoing benefit period. Customers may also want to consider Origin’s Predictable Plan, whereby customers pay the same amount every billing period for a year regardless of their gas usage. Unique quotes are offered based on previous usage history. However, this will require customers to get in contact with Origin to see if they are eligible. There are no exit fees with any Origin gas plan.

  • Origin was rated three stars across all research categories, such as overall satisfaction, bill & cost clarity, customer service, online tools & advice, environmental sustainability, ease of sign-up and value for money.

GloBird Energy

Electricity and gas retailer, GloBird Energy, debuts this year as a new entrant to our annual Victorian gas review. The company emerged as one of the main ‘second tier’ challengers to Victoria’s power giants – AGL, Origin and EnergyAustralia. It has three or four main offers, all of which come with different selling points for customers to think about. One of GloBird’s offers has conditional discounts for those paying on time and by direct debit, while the other is tailored to customers who prefer to set and forget, so long as they pay by direct debit with credit card. There is another option for Victorians looking to consolidate their electricity and gas, increasing the conditional discount offered, while a standard contract with basic non-competitive rates is also available.

  • GloBird Energy took out a mixed bag of ratings in this year’s gas review, including four stars for ease of sign-up and value for money, while scoring three stars for overall satisfaction, bill & cost clarity and customer service. It only managed a two star rating for environmental sustainability and online tools & advice.

List of Victoria Gas Suppliers

Our customer satisfaction ratings feature the most prominent natural gas suppliers in Victoria, but there are a handful of others to choose from. Here is a complete list of companies selling gas in Victoria:

While there are many gas providers to choose from in Victoria, keep in mind that some only sell gas when you also purchase electricity.

About the Victoria Gas Market

Victorian Gas Market

Victoria now has a hugely competitive gas retail market, but that hasn’t always been the case. Since 2002, households around the state have been able to move from standard contracts onto market contracts with different providers, but with price regulations, there would have been little financial incentive to do so. However, the Victorian Government lifted energy price regulations for gas and electricity in 2009, paving the way for new companies to enter the market and challenge the dominance of the incumbents. That’s exactly what’s happened, with suppliers such as Simply Energy, Lumo Energy, Momentum Energy and Red Energy offering competitive plans and often superior customer service. In more recent times, some other retailers that previously only retailed electricity have also started to sell gas. These include GloBird Energy, Powershop and Sumo.

While competition is important, it can also lead to confusion, with multiple gas plans now offered by most retailers. This makes it hard to work out which offer is right for you. However, before talking about plans, let’s first go over the basic information you’ll need to know in order to get a better deal.

Gas Contracts in Victoria

There are two types of gas contracts in Victoria – standard contracts and market contracts.

  • Standard contracts are what households are likely to be on if they have not switched providers since Full Retail Competition was introduced in Victoria back in 2002. Prices on standard contracts are set by the retailers, but their terms and conditions are still controlled by the Victorian Essential Services Commission which regulates the energy industry. This means certain minimum standards are met around prices, price changes, exit fees and other T&Cs.
  • Market contracts are what customers in Melbourne and the rest of the state are likely to be on if they have switched energy providers over the last few years. Market offers are almost entirely set by the energy companies, meaning they come with varying contract lengths, conditional benefits and may include exit fees. Importantly, retailers could change prices whenever they want, unless you have a fixed rate plan whereby prices are usually increased every two years.

Market contracts should always work out the cheaper option, but only if you can stick to the conditions of your plan. Failure to do so could leave you paying significantly more.

Gas Plans in Victoria

Whether you have a standard contract or market gas contract, the amount you pay will be determined by two main charges – supply costs and usage charges.

  • Supply costs are what you pay to be connected to the gas network in your area. These are fixed daily charges that you’ll need to pay regardless of how much gas you actually use.
  • Usage charges are what you will pay for the gas that is actually used to heat your oven or used to heat your hot water, for example. These costs can vary depending on the time you use gas, which we’ll come to shortly.

The easiest way to compare two different gas providers is to check out their supply and usage charges. In Victoria, these costs can vary significantly between the retailers. Some may appear to have cheap supply prices, but these could be made up for by higher usage rates, or vice versa. Also, be aware that most plans come with variable rate charges, meaning the amount you pay could be changed by your provider at any time. Some gas retailers offer plans with fixed rates – meaning your supply and usage charges are locked in for a set period – but there are pros and cons to these types of plans.

Gas Charges in Victoria

Victoria Gas Charges

Natural gas prices are charged in cents per megajoule (the unit of measurement for gas). Peak time gas usage rates will typically cost between 2.5 and 3 cents per megajoule. To put this into perspective, your gas oven probably uses around 12 megajoules an hour. It’s important to have a handle on gas prices to help you monitor and act on your usage.

If you have a time of use tariff, the amount you will pay for gas will change depending on the time of day you use it. In Victoria, gas usage may also be broken into daily ‘blocks’, with the first block of power usually costing the most. For example, you could:

  • Pay 2.6 cents per megajoule (MJ) for the first 100 megajoules
  • Then pay 2.2 cents per megajoule for the next 100 megajoules
  • Then pay 1.8 cents per megajoule for the next 100 megajoules

These rates are typical of peak-time gas usage costs. However, you can expect cheaper rates if you use gas at off-peak times. The majority of households in Victoria now have smart meters and are therefore able to use flexible pricing tariffs.

Gas Distribution Networks in Victoria

You may not realise, but one of the biggest factors in determining the prices you pay for energy is your location. Melbourne and the rest of Victoria is split between various energy distributor networks, with different companies responsible for maintaining and improving the vast infrastructure that transports gas and electricity to your particular suburb. While there are five electricity distribution networks in Victoria, households are divided into three gas networks:

  • Australian Gas Networks – servicing northern suburbs of Melbourne, eastern Victoria and the Mornington Peninsula.
  • AusNet Services – servicing outer western suburbs of Melbourne and western Victoria.
  • Multinet Gas – servicing eastern suburbs of Melbourne.

This is useful to know – not only because these companies are who you will need to contact if you have a problem with your gas supply, or notice a gas leak, but because the network you live on has an impact on your overall costs. Energy distributor costs can account for up to 50% of your overall energy bills.

Picking your gas supplier

Gas Suppliers

There are lots of things to think about when it comes to picking a gas supplier for your home. We asked Victorian respondents to our survey about their main reasons for initially picking their gas supplier. This is what we found:

  • 32% shopped around and compared plans and prices
  • 23% were attracted by a big discount
  • 13% just went with a retailer name they recognised
  • 11% picked the retailer that appealed most to them for other reasons (e.g. green credentials)
  • 10% were attracted by a different sign-up incentive (e.g. movie tickets)

Almost a third of gas customers in Victoria (32%) signed up to their supplier over the phone, the survey found, while the exact same amount signed up online. A promising 89% of survey respondents believe they get a good deal on gas, despite only 39% having switched gas suppliers in the last two years.

How to get a better deal on gas in Victoria

Whether you’re buying gas or electricity, the key to getting a better deal is understanding the different factors that determine the costs you’ll need to pay, including contract types, plans, tariffs and charges. In summary, here are some questions that are worth asking any prospective gas provider in Victoria:

  • What type of contract are they offering?
  • What is the contract length and are there any exit fees?
  • How much are the supply and usage charges?
  • What discount is available and what are the conditions?
  • What other incentives/rewards can they offer?

Remember that the Victorian gas market is now hugely competitive, with more than 15 different providers competing for your business. This puts you – the paying customer – in the driving seat. Make sure you shop around for the best deal for you and don’t be afraid to switch if you’re not 100% satisfied with the price you’re currently paying or the servicing you’re receiving. With so much competition, you may even be able to benefit from a growing number of rewards programs and other sign-up incentives. Ultimately, it’s all about what gives you the best value. That could mean the cheapest prices you can find, but it may also mean you get value from other parts of the plan.
