While almost everyone is aware that they’re paying too much for their power, few notice that the price of gas has also seen significant increases over the past few years. Gas is a household essential, and it’s essential you get it at a sharp rate.
So if you’re fed up with prices being so high in SA, call Electricity Monster today!
Is natural gas the answer to South Australia’s energy woes?
If you live in South Australia blackouts are something you’re far too familiar with. It’s been shown in the past few years that the grid in South Australia just isn’t up to dealing with some of the more extreme weather we’ve been seeing lately. As a consumer or business owner, it’s incredibly frustrating when something you’re forced to spend so much money on isn’t reliable. In fact, some studies have shown that customers in South Australia are paying more for their energy than anyone else in the world, let alone anyone else in Australia.
Recently there have been some pretty serious moves made in the South Australian gas industry. Beginning in early 2017 a number of different companies began to see the energy troubles SA was experiencing as an opportunity. It began with a group of former BHP Billiton and BP executives. Working under the Integrated Global Partners label these executives proposed the construction of a massive $600 million, 350-megawatt gas-fired peaking plant which would get its fuel from gas extracted from both the North West Shelf as well as Singapore. A year later, in 2018, the massive Japanese company Mitsubishi also jumped on the plan. Their plan involves what’s known as a “virtual pipeline” where a large amount of natural gas would be imported into South Australia. Once it has arrived it would be processed at Pelican Point, a power station located around 20kms south of Adelaide. The addition of Mitsubishi has also meant the size of the project has grown to $800 million.
What’s great about these plans is that if this new project gets off the ground it could really help South Australia’s energy issues.

How to find the best gas suppliers in South Australia
These days, it’s more important than ever to shop for your energy needs. South Australians, in particular, have been left paying some insanely high prices for the energy. Despite all the focus on new energy generation schemes, be they new natural gas or renewables, it feels like very little has changed about your power bill. It’s still too big, it’s still putting a lot of pressure on your family and it’s still past time something was done about it. This is a result of a number of factors. Extremely high wholesale costs, wild weather placing a large amount of strain on the network, and people sticking with expensive providers despite there being alternatives available on the market. Considering the situation, why take fifteen minutes out of your day and compare energy providers? What do you have to lose by making sure you’re getting one of the best plans we have available?
At Electricity Monster we’ve got some great deals with many of the sharpest gas suppliers Adelaide has. The brokers at Electricity Monster have the skills, expertise and talent to find you a rate that leaves you better off, even in a difficult and expensive market like South Australia.

How your gas gets to you
South Australia is one of the most resource-rich states in the country. The Cooper Basin, which is a massive area stretching from the northeast of SA to the south west of Queensland, is one the richest resource deposits in the country. In addition to being a major source of oil, the Cooper Basin is also home to over 160 natural gas fields. These fields add up to 630 wells, each one producing a large amount of natural gas. Around 60% of this gas is then used to generate energy, while the rest is sent out to be used in households across the country. Other locations such as Port Bonython off the coast of Adelaide, produce up to 10,000 tons of propane per month.
From there gas is transmitted through a number of pipelines to locations all across South Australia. There are six pipelines in total: the Moomba to Adelaide Pipeline (MAPS), the South the East Australia Gas (SEA Gas), the Moomba to Sydney Pipeline (MSP), the Queensland, South Australia and New South Wales link (QSN), South East South Australia pipeline (SESA), and the South East Pipeline System (SEPS). It’s through these particular pipelines that nearly all of the gas in South Australia travels. Finally, there’s the SA Riverland Pipeline. This pipeline doesn’t directly send gas to South Australia, but it does pass through Murray Bridge on its way to Mildura, a small city in northern Victoria. It’s through these networks of pipes that the gas ends up in your home, where it can be used for cooking, heating and all manner of household tasks.
So now that you know how exactly your gas is getting to you, you might want to know how to get that gas some very competitive rates. In order to do that, it’s essential you make the call to Electricity Monster.

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
How do I compare gas retailers in South Australia?
At this time in South Australia’s gas market, it’s essential that you compare providers to see if you’re getting the best rates possible. Unfortunately, that process can get a little complicated and time-consuming. This is why you should call Electricity Monster and have us take care of it for you, for free!
How can Electricity Monster help you to find you the right suppliers?

Will I lose my gas supply if I switch providers?

Will switching suppliers cost me money?

How do I sign up to a gas plan?
If you do it with Electricity Monster you won’t have to do a thing. We will handle the whole process. All you have to do is dial 1300 232 848.
What is a gas usage charge?
If you look on your bill you gas usage charge is usually the largest cost printed on it. Gas usage charges are what you will be charged for how much gas you use. A simple way to pay a smaller gas usage charge is to use less gas.
What is a gas supply charge?
Unlike the gas usage charge where you pay a different amount depending on how much you use, the gas supply charge is fixed. This is merely the cost to maintain your gas connection with whichever gas company you’re currently with. It’s usually a single rate per day.
What is a gas tariff?
One great thing about gas, as opposed to power, is your gas tariffs are a lot simpler. So you’ll pay the same amount regardless of what time of day it is, but may be charged in blocks depending on how much you use. You also may be charged slightly different rates during different seasons, however. So check with your retailer!
What is a pay on time discount?
A pay on time discount is a discount you will receive should you pay your gas bill within a set time period. This is usually applied to the electricity usage component of your bill. Many suppliers offer very competitive pay on time discounts so call Electricity Monster to find out more!
What is a direct debit discount?
This is another carrot offered by gas retailers to get you to pay your bill on time. Paying via direct debit means the retailer will always get paid, on time, and in full.
What is a discount benefit period?
If you’re offered either a direct debit discount or a pay on time discount by your supplier, often times these will only be for a set period of time. The discount benefit period is how long these discounts will remain active. Keep an extra close eye on your bill, when the benefit period expires you may get a nasty shock.
What if I can't pay my gas bill?
Seeing as you’re in South Australia it’s probably because you’re being charged way too much to use your gas. This is when you call Electricity Monster. We can get you a sharper rate, regardless of what your energy needs might be.
What is Bill Smoothing?
Bill smoothing is an excellent option if unpredictable bills are a concern of yours. Every month your bill will be about the same. This will lead to you paying a little bit more some months, and a little bit less on others. A great option for those who are budgeting!
