We changed our South Australian natural gas prices on 1 July 2019 for our Origin residential and small business customers (except customers on Predictable Plan, Rate Freeze and Low Rate plans). 

There was a price increase of an average of 4.4% for residential customers and 5.3% for small business customers. You’ll see the price change on your natural gas bills after 1 July 2019 (except customers on Predictable Plan, Rate Freeze and Low Rate plans). 

The increase in our natural gas prices was driven by higher wholesale energy costs and network charges to deliver the gas through the pipeline to your home or business.

You’ll see the price change on your natural gas bills from 1 July 2019.

 

You should have received an email or letter about the natural gas price change prior to 1 July. So you can see what’s changed, we included in the letter what you currently pay compared to the new rates.

Origin also published a notice in S.A.’s major metropolitan newspaper before the change.

You can also find charges and tariff information in our Basic Plan Information Documents.

We change our electricity and natural gas prices occasionally and will let you know when we do.

On 1 July 2019 our GreenPower electricity charges for 10%, 20%, 25%, 50% and 100% went down.

GreenPower costs are reducing due an increase in renewable energy becoming available as we approach the 2020 target for renewable energy.
