Connecting your utilities

To connect with natural gas, you will need to contact the relevant Brisbane network. Natural gas supply isn’t available in all districts, and not every premises can be connected to gas, so make sure to check your home’s potential before moving forward. Gas can be competitively priced as a stand-alone energy source, while bundle electricity/gas deals are hugely popular with customers all around Australia.

Pros of bundling your plans together

Brisbane customers have plenty of power options, and there is even more potential to save by bundling energy plans together. Close to 20% of Australian homes have both electricity and gas, so it makes perfect sense to combine them both in a single electricity/gas bill. Progressive GoSwitch partner retailers such as Dodo can even include internet in the bundle deal, with tempting contract incentives included.

Energy users prefer the convenience of a single bill in an easy-to-read format. Keeping up with commitments isn’t always easy, but GoSwitch puts you back in control of energy usage, bill payments, contract features, and cash back incentives. Our service extends to New South Wales, Victoria, and other Australian states, so you can even use the free GoSwitch comparison service for an interstate move.

Features to look for in a gas and electricity plan

Retailers establish contract features that stand out from the default market offer. In a competitive marketplace, energy providers do all they can to attract customers. However, most contracts will contain the following:

Contract term: Retailers offer energy plan discounts, sometimes for the life of the contract term. Alternatively, you may prefer a no lock-in contract.

Cooling off period: Electricity and gas providers in Brisbane offer a 10-day cooling-off period in case you change your mind.

Terms and conditions: These vary a lot, making a GoSwitch price comparison the fast and convenient way to find a better contract.

Eligibility: This is particularly important for gas deals. Natural gas may not be available at your new location.

Contract incentives: Incentives can include pay-on-time discounts, direct debit payment discounts, time-of-use discounts, or a monthly discount off the default market offer.

Contract updates: Your energy retailer should be contactable online, over the phone or by mail. They should also provide regular updates about services and incentives.
