Powering greater energy choice in the ACT

Canfan 23 September 2014 1

Canberrans have greater energy choices from today with Origin – Australia’s largest integrated energy company – now selling gas and electricity to ACT homes and small businesses.

Until now, the ACT has had only two energy retailers to choose from – while customers in other states have enjoyed the benefits of much greater competition. Victoria has 16 active electricity retailers, South Australia 13, New South Wales 12 and South East Queensland 10.

“The majority of gas customers in ACT and almost half of electricity customers surveyed do not even know they have a choice of energy retailer,” says Frank Calabria, Chief Executive Officer, Energy Markets, Origin.

“By opening our gas and electricity business for customers in the ACT, Origin will provide locals with many benefits that they have been asking for.”

For more information about Origin’s arrival in ACT and the benefits of choosing Origin, customers should visit www.originenergy.com.au/ACT.

To compare offers between retailers, customers are encouraged to visit the Australian Energy Regulator’s independent website www.energymadeeasy.gov.au.

Surprise, surprise, the energymadeeasy website didn’t give a comparison for “time of use” metering, and with simple peak rate usage the bill was exactly the same for ACTEW and Origin. Competition my A$$.
