Origin Energy’s Electricity Plans

Since the introduction of the VDO and DMO, Origin Energy has changed the structure of its product offering. Like most energy providers, their plans focused on big pay on time discounts. Origin Energy now opts for simpler energy plans with low rates and guaranteed discounts off your total bill with new regulations. Here are the energy plans that Origin Energy has on offer.

Origin Go

This is probably Origin Energy’s most popular plan! It’s a competitive offer that guarantees you low rates for 12 months.

Set up a direct debit payment and enjoy this hassle-free energy plan! The Origin Go plan also offers you the option of electronic or paper bills for a small fee.

Customers in Victoria also receive a $25 bonus electricity credit when they choose this plan. The credit has been calculated into the estimated price above for ease of comparison.

Origin Basic

As the name suggests, this is Origin Energy’s basic plan. Other than the flexible payment methods and zero exit fees, this plan does not provide any frills. This offer is the standard deal described by Origin Energy as the set and forget plan with no renewal required.

Origin Everyday Rewards

This plan is the same as the Origin Go plan but for Everyday Rewards members. This plan lets you collect points with their energy. Everyday Rewards members can collect 1 point for every $1 they get charged on their energy bill.

You’ll also get a one-off 5,000 bonus points upon signup for each energy type and pay nothing extra for 25% GreenPower. Everyday Rewards members must link their Everyday Rewards number when signing up for this plan.

Victorian customers will also receive a $25 bonus electricity credit when they opt for this plan. The credit has been applied to the estimated price in the table above.

Origin Flexi Rate ePlus

The Origin Flexi Rate ePlus offer is all about variable rates where your electricity rates could go up or down once in 12 months. Origin Energy will always let you know in advance if your rates are to change on this plan. The rates can vary due to changes in wholesale electricity prices, network costs and to the Default Market Offer (DMO) and Victorian Default Offer (VDO). With this offer, you can opt for either electronic or paper bills, have flexible billing and payment options and lets you easily switch anytime with no lock-in contracts and zero exit fees.

Origin Energy’s Gas Plans

Origin Energy is one of Australia’s leading gas providers, with both LPG service and natural gas plans for residential and business customers across Australia, except for the Northern Territory and Tasmania. Let’s review Origin Energy’s gas plans below.

Origin Everyday Rewards

The Origin Everyday Rewards gas option is a 12-month fixed-rate plan where Everyday Rewards Members get 10,000 bonus points when they sign up for electricity and gas. So that equates to 5,000 points per energy type. In addition, customers can collect 1 point for every $1 charged for their energy supply and usage. This plan also includes 100% Green Gas at no extra cost to you. All you need to do is add your Everyday Rewards number before signing up for this plan.

Origin Go

Searching for a gas plan with guaranteed rates that won’t change for 12 months? Well, the Origin Go could be the gas plan for you.

The Origin Go gas plan is much like the Everyday Rewards Plan without the Everyday Rewards feature. But with flexible payment options, no lock-in contract and zero exit fees, this is still a competitive gas plan from Origin Energy.

Origin Basic

Basic is what you get with the Origin Basic Gas plan. The Origin Basic gas plan is their no-frills, set and forget plan, which is ongoing and does not require customers to renew it. Features of this plan include variable rates, no lock-in contract and zero exit fees.

Origin Supply

The Origin Supply gas plan has the same exact features as the Basic Plan but is only offered to customers in Perth, Western Australia.

How Green is Origin Energy?

The figures in the table below are from the report: Alviss Consulting, 2018 Green Electricity Guide Methodology. They reflect Origin Energy’s score on the 7 criteria that make up the 2018 Green Electricity Guide.

Overall, Origin Energy received a score of 6.8 for how green they are. Origin Energy scored a perfect 10 for providing comprehensive and accessible energy efficiency products and involvement in demand management/response programs.

Origin Energy has a low score for carbon emissions and fossil fuels due to their public support for mining and energy generation from coal steam gas (CSG). Their extensive investments in CSG and coal power stations also contribute towards their low carbon emissions score.

But Origin energy supports local energy (P2P) trading, offers a solar export price above the state average, and provides equitable solar offers.

Origin Energy & Renewable Energy

Origin Energy was once referred to as one of the ‘Dirty Three’ due to its high carbon emission and absence from renewable energy investment. But since then, Origin Energy has improved its reputation by offering Australians clean green energy options.

Greenpower & Green Gas

Origin Energy is a Greenpower accredited energy retailer. So for as little as 65 cents for electricity and $1 for natural gas a week, you can get 25% GreenPower. This encourages you to reduce your consumption’s environmental impact as Origin Energy supplies renewable energy back into the electricity grid. One thing to note is that the Origin Everyday Rewards plan automatically gets you 25% Green Power at no extra cost.

Renewable Energy Portfolio

Origin Energy’s renewable energy portfolio was initially non-existent, but now, 20% of their energy generation capacity comes from renewable sources, including solar energy, wind power, mini-hydro, and biomass and biogas.

Solar PV Systems

Origin Energy is an accredited solar retailer with over 1 million solar PV systems installation across Australia. Customers who purchase their solar panels through Origin Energy could benefit from some of the Australian energy market’s highest feed-in tariffs.

If you’re thinking of going solar, call Electricity Monster and speak to one of our solar specialists who’ll help you find a plan to suit your needs.

You can even use the app to submit your own meter reading or book a move to your new property. If you’re looking to renew your plan or request a payment extension, they can both be done through the Origin App.

Apart from the app, you can also manage your account and do all of the above through Origin Energy’s website using your Origin Energy account number.

This can include smaller regular payments over your chosen billing frequency, covering your current usage and outstanding debt.
