The Role of Gas Providers
Natural gas is found in gas field and extracted from wells. They are processed to remove any impurities and sold to gas suppliers at spot wholesale markets, which are found at the major gas demand and supply centers in the country: Adelaide, Brisbane, Sydney, Victoria, and Wallumbilla.
The gas suppliers, in turn, distribute the product to consumers. These providers set the selling prices and manage the customer billing and collections.
How Providers Differ
Knowing what to look for when comparing gas providers will make the process more straightforward and easy to understand. Generally, gas providers differ mainly in their:
Rate per MJ
Tariff block rates
Discounts and Incentives
Contract Period/Benefit period
Provider features, such as:
Online account management capability
Customer service quality
Rewards or loyalty programs
All gas offers fall under the single rate tariff type - meaning the price is fixed depending on the user’s consumption. Some gas companies may use block rate tariffs where fixed prices are set for a specific gas usage bracket.
As mentioned, CompareEnergy has taken all the hard work of comparing gas plans for you. We pride ourselves in making the information on our site updated and very easy to compare.
CompareEnergy does not add on to the gas supplier’s retail prices. Our business makes money through the small commissions that we receive from our energy partners when we are able to assist them with a switch or connection. This allows us to keep our operations tight and our services free for our users.
