Origin Energy: Our verdict

Origin Energy is one of the largest electricity and gas retailers in Australia, meaning you should expect to see a few bells and whistles alongside its energy plans, albeit at an additional cost.

Just keep in mind that while there's no lock-in contract or exit fees, you also don't have the option for monthly billing and you'll be charged a credit card fee.

Pros

  • Option to earn Everyday Rewards points on some plans
  • Comprehensive app for keeping track of energy usage and bills
  • Up to $20 per month discount on energy and internet bundle

Cons

  • Poor environmental track record
  • Credit card fees apply
Highly commended: Electricity provider (national) badge
