Frequently asked questions

How do I connect electricity to a rental property?

Check your rental agreement to see if rent includes utilities. In some sites, the owner of a building may have the electrical wiring configured in a way that enables them to sell electricity to their tenants. This configuration is known as an embedded network.

If utilities are already connected, you won’t have to worry about calling energy providers or creating a new account for the property. However, they’ll still need to get some details from you for billing purposes.

If utilities aren’t included, you’ll need to organise this connection yourself. You can do this through our energy comparison service.

How do I change energy providers when moving to a new house?

Once you’ve chosen which provider and energy plan to go with, you can talk to one of our specialists at 1800 990 003 or apply online through our energy comparison service.

Will power be disrupted if I switch to Origin?

Switching providers won’t interrupt your power supply. Unless you’re moving houses, you won’t need to contact your old supplier to notify them of the switch either.

Can I connect to electricity on the weekend?

Most energy providers only connect electricity on weekdays (excluding public holidays).

When should I disconnect power when moving?

Thankfully, disconnecting power is an easy process because it’s something that your energy retailer is responsible for. Call your provider to organise the disconnection.

You can choose any weekday to get disconnected, but it’s a good idea to have your provider disconnect your utilities the day after you move out.

How do I find the best energy plan for my home or small business?

To find an Origin Energy plan for your home or small business, or other great-value plans from some of Australia’s top providers, consider comparing energy plans through our energy comparison service.

You can get a free quote in minutes and it’s easy to compare the price, discounts and rates. What’s more, if you decide to sign up to a plan, we won’t charge you extra, since our commissions come from the energy retailer.
