Process of getting your power connected

GoSwitch can help you coordinate the disconnection of your existing service and connection of your new service in Qld, NSW, and other Australian states and territories. Information your energy retailer will require includes:

  • Your new address
  • The date you want to schedule power disconnection/connection
  • Your contact details (phone, email, post)
  • Any concessions or rebates you are eligible for

Fees you may incur when moving

When you move to a new home or rental property, you will likely be charged a disconnection/reconnection fee. Electricity and gas connection fees in Qld are established by energy retailers and can vary depending on your location and energy requirements. If switching to a new retailer, there may be an early exit fee associated with your current contract. GoSwitch price comparison is the first step in getting maximum savings on your new energy deal.
