Compare Momentum Energy Plans

Momentum Energy is a boutique energy provider operating in Victoria, New South Wales, Queensland, and South Australia.

Despite being owned by a renewable energy generator, Momentum Energy sources its power from the National Electricity Market (NEM). The NEM is a mix of electricity generated from various sources, including fossil fuels.

As a result, the electricity supplied by Momentum Energy is not necessarily from renewable sources.

Momentum Energy gas plans

Momentum Energy sells natural gas exclusively in Victoria, not in any other state. Its natural gas plans are open contracts with no credit card or exit fees.

Unlike some other providers, Momentum Energy does not offer conditional discounts on its natural gas plans. Instead, it uses a block-rate tariff, where the gas rate decreases as usage increases.

Customers should also note that rates may be slightly higher during 'peak' months from June to September.

Does Momentum Energy offer solar plans?

Households with solar panels can benefit from a higher solar feed-in tariff by opting for Momentum Energy's Solar and Friends plan.

While the Solar and Friends plan doesn't offer a discount off the reference price, households that export a significant amount of solar energy to the grid can offset this with solar credits and a higher feed-in tariff.

Aside from the higher feed-in tariff, the Solar and Friends plan includes:

  • Flexible bill payment options
  • Flexible billing options
  • $0 exit fees and an ongoing benefit period
  • Various ways to contact Momentum Energy
  • A promise to match renewable energy

While Momentum Energy offers reasonable feed-in tariffs for customers with solar systems, other retailers may offer better solar products. Here's what you can expect for the solar feed-in tariff on its standing offer, depending on your state:
