Is Origin Energy the best company for electricity?

Origin Energy first began operating in February 2000. Since then, the company has expanded its energy network throughout NSW, the ACT, Victoria, South Australia, Queensland, and Western Australia in both the electricity and gas networks. In 2011, Origin purchased the retail branches of Country Energy and Integral Energy from the New South Wales Government.

Origin is proud to be one of Australia’s leading energy companies selling electricity, natural gas, LPG, and solar to over 4.2 million residential, small business and commercial customers.

Origin generates over 6,000MW of electricity each year, which is approximately 13% of the power capacity of the National Electricity Market. Origin’s major generators include Queensland’s Darling Downs Power Station, the Eraring Power Station in New South Wales (Australia’s largest generator), and the Shoalhaven Hydropower Station.

Origin GreenPower Renewable Energy

Origin Energy is committed to reducing the impact that energy production has on the environment. Customers have access to a range of different environmentally friendly and energy efficient options. Origin’s energy plans come with the option to offset greenhouse emissions, and a choice of sourcing between 10% to 100% of electricity from renewable generators.

Origin’s new, expanded renewable supply network is scheduled to come online by 2020. This will increase the amount of energy generated by solar, wind, and hydro power. They advertise the intention to pass on further reductions in wholesale energy prices to retail customers.

Origin Energy Residential Plans

Origin has a range of different pricing structures depending on which state and which distribution network you are on.  Their plans include the Origin Maximiser, Origin Saver, Origin Smart Saver, and their One Low Rate fixed plan. Customers can also bundle their electricity and gas. Discounts are available for paying via Direct Debit or using their eBilling facilities. All residential plans come with no exit fees or lock in contracts.

The Origin call centre operates from 7am to 9pm weekdays and Saturdays 9am to 5pm. Online energy experts are available via chat Monday to Friday, 7 am to 7 pm. Origin also offers plans for business customers.
