Compare NT electricity and gas plans

How the Northern Territory energy market works and what energy concessions you might be eligible for to lower your bill.

We’re reader-supported and may be paid when you visit links to partner sites. We don’t compare all products in the market, but we’re working on it!

The Northern Territory has been open to competition since 2010, but it's dominated by state-owned energy providers as the prices are regulated by the government.

While you won't be able to compare prices, you can choose your retailer based on features like customer support availability, how environmentally friendly the compamy is. So we're here to help you figure out which one is best for you.

Which is the cheapest electricity and gas provider in the NT?

Since electricity prices are completely government-regulated in the NT, all providers will charge you the same amount. This means that no one provider is cheaper than any other.

However, there are two different providers who sell LPG to NT residents with gas-powered appliances. We've given a brief price comparison below.

Is electricity or gas cheaper in the NT?

It's difficult to compare gas and electricity prices in the NT. Power plans have ongoing supply and usage costs, while gas plans are mostly based around regular deliveries of gas to homes rather than a regular plan with steady supply.

In saying that, gas is generally cheaper but your bill will depend on how your house is designed and the appliances that you have installed.

Check our guide on gas vs electricity to learn more.

How much can I save by switching energy plans?

For most residents of the Northern Territory, switching providers won't actually save you money. This is because prices are government-regulated, so prices will be the same no matter who you go with.

That said, you may prefer certain aspects of your plan over another such as the customer service or how they handle contracts.

Do I qualify for any energy rebates available in the NT?

Energy rebates generally come as a flat sum or a percentage of your energy bill.

To claim a rebate, you must be a part of the Northern Territory Concession Scheme and meet any other eligibility requirements. Applications to the scheme can be done online or in person.

Here's a breakdown of the rebates available in the Northern Territory:

electricity

Jacana Energy and Power and Water Corporation concession

This is a payment to help concession holders cover their electricity costs. Only one member per household can claim this benefit.

Prepaid electricity meter concession

If you prepay your electricity and are on the concession scheme, you may be able to get this rebate paid in 2 half-yearly instalments.

life support

Registered caravan park concession

This is designed to help out concession holders who live in caravan parks and have to pay for their own electricity.

Alternative energy concession

Alternative energy concession

This is a concession for residents who don't directly pay for a regular energy plan.

Medical energy rebate

Medical support allowance

This is an extra concession that layers on top of the regular electricity concession, designed for people with certain medical conditions.
