Beat Victoria’s Gas Crisis with Electricity Monster

We’ve all seen the headlines, the Australian power bill has spiralled out of control. While the big retailers are boasting of record profits, the ordinary Aussie battler is struggling to pay for his or her energy use. The team at Electricity Monster is firmly on the side of the regular Australian consumer, and we help people just like you get sharp rates every day. However we like to be thorough in our approach. Let’s say you’re getting a 25% pay on time discount on your power, what about your business or residential gas? You could be missing out on better gas deals, if you don’t take the time to compare your gas as well. Comparing energy plans is one thing, but comparing gas plans as well is something you must do. Especially in Victoria as winter is very cold and gas bills can be very expensive!

You might not think of your gas bill that often but remember that for most Victorians gas plays a major part in your life. Between cooking and heating, you use quite a lot of gas in your daily life. But the secret is using more frequently could result in a lighter power bill. How? For one using gas to heat your oven or hot water is actually cheaper than using power from the grid. According to the Australian Gas Networks, the average home in Melbourne uses 19 gigajoules of natural gas per year on water and cooking a year. On average those who do use their gas to cook and heat their water will spend about $737. Meanwhile people who opt to heat their water and cook their dinner using electricity alone will spend about $1423 on average. That’s a nearly 50% difference in costs! Now think what could happen if we got you that gas at an even sharper rate. Using cheap gas to power your essential household appliances could end up in major savings down the line.

Another major reason to get serious about shopping for gas is many observers are predicting a gas shortfall in the next few years. In a report released by The Australian Energy Market Operator has predicted a 57% drop in total gas production during the next five years. In real terms this means Victoria could be looking at a shortfall of anywhere from 36 terajoules to 220 terajoules during the winters of 2021 & 2022. A gas shortage in the winter could leave many Victorian families slug with high gas bills.This whole scenario is completely unacceptable and it prompted PM Malcolm Turnbull to say:

“We are facing an energy crisis because of [these] restrictions on gas”

What’s causing this looming energy crisis? A number of factors. For one, both the Gippsland Basin gas fields and the Port Campbell gas fields have seen their production levels tank. Gippsland is down by 38% while Port Campbell has shrunk by 68%. In response to this Gippsland Basin begun to ramp up their production, however all this means is that their resources are going to run out even faster. Secondly the state government in Victoria has placed a moratorium on any onshore exploration for natural gas, despite the fact that Victoria has some massive gas reserves available. This has placed extra pressure on the dwindling reserves offshore, reducing their supply and driving up prices for Victorian customers. This is only going to get worse as we approach the point where our reserves are exhausted.

With these incredibly troubling developments looming over Victorian gas customers it’s up to the everyday consumer to take these problems into their own hands. The upside is, in Victoria you have a fully deregulated energy market. Now the problem is finding the best gas deals and plans in Victoria.

The History of Gas in Victoria

Gas has been a major part of Victorian life for over a hundred years. In fact, the usage of gas in the state dates back to well before the advent of electricity. Early usage of gas in Melbourne started in the 1850s, where it was used to power all sorts of things from street lamps to stoves to gas heaters. Back then it wasn’t, the extracted natural gas that we use today, it was gas sourced from black coal, and required gasworks to be dotted about suburban areas. For many years the gas was under the control of either one of three companies, the Metropolitan Gas Company, the Geelong Gas Company or the Brighton Gas Company.

In the 1950s multiple gas retailers were replaced with a monopoly. The Gas and Fuel Corporation of Victoria was established by the government and totally eliminated the Metropolitan Gas Company and the Brighton Gas Company. This new company maintained their monopoly on gas in Victoria for over 40 years, and in 1971 finally acquired the Geelong Gas Company. After Geelong was acquired the sole remaining private gas company Ballarat closed due to the overall move towards natural gas in Victoria.

These days the major sources of gas in Victoria are from offshore natural gas reserves. The largest of these is the Gippsland Basin, the largest natural gas reserve in Victoria. Other gas reserves are located at the Otway Basin and the Bass Coast region. Once it has been extracted, the gas is taken to the Longford Processing Plant, which produces the lion’s share of Victoria’s commercial natural gas product. Overall while a large amount of natural gas is being produced in the state, it’s still very expensive for many families and it’s still running out. If you don’t want to be stuck with extremely expensive natural gas bills, you need to make the call to Electricity Monster today.
