With so many residential gas providers operating in Australia it is no wonder that choosing a cheap plan can be confusing. Mozo cuts through the confusion to help you save time and money.
We’ve created an energy comparison service so that you can quickly and easily compare cheap gas plans in your area.
1. Get a recent bill handy - All we need is a few quick details like your postcode, household size and current usage and we'll be able to give you an estimate of some of the gas plans that are available in your area. If you don’t have a recent bill, we can provide you with an estimated gas quote.
2. Review results - You’ll instantly see the average price estimates for your postcode on the results screen. Mozo also publishes customer gas reviews of all providers listed on our site so that you can see what real customers are saying about their gas service before signing up.
3. Switch - Once you’ve chosen the best gas plan for you, it’s time to switch providers. You can complete your application direct from our service and once your account has been confirmed we’ll even notify your old provider. They will then do a final meter ready, issue you with your final bill. Rest assured there will be no interruption to your gas service.
Despite the fact that many of us use gas daily to cook, heat our homes and water, many Australians still aren’t 100% clear on how gas plans work and how our gas bills get calculated.
Similar to an electricity plan, your gas plan is made up of two charges: a fixed charge, also known as the daily supply charge and a usage charge.
The daily supply cost is the amount your gas retailer charges you to supply your home with gas on a daily basis. And because it is a fixed cost the amount does not change, regardless of how much gas your home uses. Your usage charge on the other hand is dependent on your household’s daily gas usage and is displayed as megajoules (MJ) on your bill.
Both of these charges are combined to make up your gas plan, as well as any discounts that are available for either paying on time or having a direct debit set up.
Whether it’s your first or fifth time comparing gas plans, knowing what makes a top gas plan is the trick to snatching up a great deal. While having both a low daily supply and usage charge is ideal, there are a few other features to compare, such as:
The number of energy providers that are compared will depend on where your property is located as different energy providers offer their services in different areas.
For now, we do not compare gas providers in the Northern Territory, Tasmania or Western Australia.
Our database includes plans from a select range of gas providers and we do not compare every available gas plan in the market. Our service compares gas plans that are currently available for new customers from gas retailers. Your current gas plan could be cheaper than the plans that are now available.
For a lot of Aussie households, it makes sense to kill two birds with one stone by opting to having your gas and electricity supplied by the same provider, which is commonly referred to as a ‘dual fuel’ plan.
If you are thinking of signing up to a dual fuel plan, you’ll be happy to know many retailers offer specials and discounts for combining your utilities, which can help you save a few dollars. But before jumping onto a dual fuel plan, it’s still worth comparing gas and electricity separately, to ensure that you’ll be getting the best deal.
To find a cheap gas plan in your area we’ll need to know the suburb or postcode where you currently live or where you will be moving to and the number of people in your household.
As we do not compare every gas plan in the market, the deals on our site may not be the cheapest available. We compare current market offers and if you are on an older plan, there is a chance that you could be on a cheaper rate than what is available now. In many instances, the longer it has been since you’ve switched plans, the more you’ll be paying, which is why we recommend that if you want to make sure you’re always on a cheap plan you compare your gas service annually.
You can tell us whether you want us to include discounts in your gas cost estimates by filtering your preferences on our results page. We include discounts for paying on time and direct debits as well as pensioner concessions.
We can give you an estimate for the household size and your payment preferences based on the average usage in the suburb you are moving to.
If you live in a regulated market, like New South Wales, Victoria or South-East Queensland and are responsible for paying the gas bill on your rental property, then you should have your choice of gas provider. Check out our full renters guide to switching for more information.

In an effort to transform Victorian roads, the Victorian government has announced it will be offering 20,000 subsidies of up to $3,000 for the purchase of new electric vehicles (EVs) under $69,000. The new initiative is a part of the government’s plan to have half of all new cars sold in Victoria emission-free by 2030. The first 4,000 subsidies were made available on 2 May 2021. “When people get an EV (electric vehicle) they are starting to save significant dollars off their bills," climate change minister, Lily D 'Ambrosio told the ABC."It's almost up to $1,600 that is saved off fuel and maintenance costs, each and every year, so we want to make it easier for Victorians.''In addition to the subsidies, the VIC government also plans to spend $19 million on new charging stations and an extra $10 million on government EVs, which it hopes will amount to more than 400 EVs over the next two years."This is very, very ambitious but [a plan] we are absolutely committed to achieving,” said D'Ambrosio.
Back in March, the Australian Energy Regulator (AER) suggested that Aussies with rooftop solar who export excess electricity to the grid be charged a cost for doing so. They said this new rule could help the electricity grid cope with large influxes of renewable energy generation brought on by rooftop solar. "The poles and wires businesses were set up to get electricity from a big generator, like a coal plant or a gas plant, down those wires and into your house," said AEMC chief executive, Benn Barr. "That change we've seen over the last 10,15 years is a two-way flow … now power is not just going to your house, but power is coming from your house. The system hasn't been set up to deal with that.Barr argued that the prices would be flexible and be left up to power companies to determine, however, Aussies will still be able to earn cash by exporting electricity when required. "We've modelled different charges from $10 to $100, depending upon the size of your solar system," Barr added. "You get a good return from solar. And it's not going to make it uneconomical for customers to put it on their roof.” However, not everyone is on board with the idea. Professor at Victoria University, Bruce Mountain told ABC’s 7:30 program that this measure would decrease a household’s income received for exporting solar by 80%. This could also see fewer Aussies interested in making the switch to solar power. It’s no secret that Aussies are big fans of solar power, with recent research from the Clean Energy Regulator found that as of 31 December 2020, more than 2.66 million households have had a solar system installed. But could a proposed tax forecast a dive in solar uptake amongst Aussie households? "Essentially, they will get the equivalent of a hamburger a year as their income from rooftop solar sales,” Mountain told 7.30. “I think that's very likely to bring pressure in the rooftop solar market, and customers will be less interested in it.” It’s unclear whether this proposed change will go ahead. But if you’d like to learn more about how solar power can benefit the environment and your wallet, have a read of our solar power guide.
The Australian Energy Regulator (AER) has announced its final decision on the Default Market Offer (DMO) for the 2021/22 financial year - and it’s good news for both households and small businesses. According to the regulator’s recent report, approximately 727,000 residential customers on standing offers will have their electricity prices cut by up to $116 annually, while small businesses will see a drop of $441. As a quick recap, the DMO was introduced in July 2019 as a measure to prevent Aussies on standing offers from being charged exorbitant prices on their energy bills. The DMO acts as a price cap that retailers must abide by and is issued by the AER. AER Chair, Clare Savage says that while the price change is good news for residents and small businesses, customers are still encouraged to shop around to ensure they’re getting the best value for money on their energy plan. “The DMO is not designed to be the most competitive deal but rather it is a safety net for customers who don’t or can’t shop around when it comes to their electricity contract,” she encouraged.“Most retailers have cheaper energy deals on offer, so shopping around remains the best way to get a better price.”
Various solar rebates and schemes have helped thousands of Aussie households turn their green energy dreams into reality, and it’s helping boost renewable energy production big time. According to solar energy marketplace bidmysolar, one-fifth of Australia’s clean energy is generated from small-scale solar systems.One scheme that’s increasingly popular amongst Aussie homeowners is the federal government’s Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme. Under this scheme, small-scale technology certificates (STC) are generated for every kilowatt of panels installed. The number of certificates produced per system depends on its geographical location, installation date and the amount of electricity generated, which can mean a rebate worth thousands of dollars. Regardless of the system’s efficiency, the rebate per panel remains the same, prompting Aussies to purchase less reliable and cheaper systems. As a result, electricity generation and consumption are disrupted. “Quality solar will pay for itself within three to four years and last for 15 to 25 years. Comparably, cheap solar often fails within 12 to 36 months and underperforms by as much as 60% annually,” founder of bidmysolar, Bernie Kelly told Mozo. “Cheap solar is undeniably expensive solar, because not only have you invested in a system that fails but you also continue to have sizable power bills and if you decide to reinvest in a new system, the output of those costs too.” Further research from bidmysolar revealed that one in six solar systems across the country developed a major fault or stopped working altogether, with cheaper models often losing more than 20% of their output capacity within just five years. “The government incentive programme for solar has created an environment for unreliable solar operators to thrive. Cheap, underperforming and failing solar has been dumped into the Australian market,” says Kelly. It’s forecasted that more than 400,000 applications for the STC’s by the Clean Energy Regulator will be made this year. To prevent more solar hiccups for the average household, Kelly shared with Mozo his top three tips for finding a top of the line solar system. “The most important issue for consumers is to never rush in, avoid all the sales hype, and know that prices do not swing wildly from day to day or month to month,” he said. “Avoid wherever possible, finance promising interest-free, no money down. Instead, talk to your bank and use their Green Loan initiatives or a fit for purpose solar loan.“Always stick to the facts, if anybody makes a statement regarding quality and performance, have them explain the position with some science attached. Question everything which is stated verbally and have a salesperson commit to writing what they have said.“Find an independent solar advisor who is not conflicted by sales commissions or benefits, like selling your personal details to multiple solar companies.” Despite its popularity, solar power remains a mystery for many Aussies, so if you’d like to learn more about how solar energy works, have a read of our handy guide.
New figures from the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) have revealed that electricity prices have fallen by 9% since the middle of last year. As a result, thousands of households across eastern and southern states now have the potential to collectively save $900 million by making the switch to a better offer. According to ACCC Chair, Rod Sims the reason for the decline in prices was due to an increase in power generation, specifically renewable energy generation and falling fuel costs. “There are two ways that households and small businesses can get the hip-pocket benefit of recent reductions in retailers’ costs: by changing to a new, cheaper plan; or, by waiting for their retailer to lower the rates on the plan that they’re already on,” he said. Under a new law that was passed in June 2020, called the Prohibiting Energy Market Misconduct (PEMM) law, electricity retailers are now required to make adjustments to their pricing in line with the cost of them to obtain electricity. And if you’ve been keeping up with energy market movements as of late, you’ll know that wholesale electricity prices have been on the decline since mid-2020. “We also expect further significant price reductions from retailers over time, as the reductions in wholesale spot prices flow through to retailers’ contracting positions,” said Sims. Victorians have the biggest potential savings of between $171 and $198 a year, as the state’s flat offer prices have reduced by 11% to 14%. This is followed by South-East Queensland ($126), South Australia ($118), New South Wales ($80 - $88) and the Australian Capital Territory ($46). Although Sims explained the ACCC will be investigating as to whether electricity retailers are following PEMM law, he encouraged Aussies to shop around to secure further savings on their annual bill. So if you think you could be getting a better deal on your electricity bill, why not take our energy comparison tool for a spin? It can help you compare some of the electricity plans available in your area.
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.
