One company that generates and distributes energy and natural gas to households across Australia is Origin Energy.  Formed in February 2000, this company has made a name for itself in energy exploration, production, power generation, and retailing. Origin Energy Phone Number and Customer Service Contact 13 24 61.

Origin Energy, Australia’s leading energy company is publicly listed on the Australian Stock Exchange (ORG). It ranks somewhere on the Top 20 of the ASX, with around 160,000 shareholders. It has a market capitalisation of around $16 billion. It is currently the foremost provider of energy to homes and businesses in Australia.  It currently has 4.3 million electricity, natural gas and LPG customer accounts, which is more than any other energy company in Australia.  It is also a major energy source in New Zealand and the Pacific. It currently has 6,000 + employees.

Origin energy does four things: exploration and production of energy, energy generation, renewable energy, and selling energy. Origin’s exploration and production portfolio includes Bowen, Surat and Cooper/Eromanga basins, Otway and Bass basins, Browse and Perth basins, Bonaparte and Beetaloo Basins. Origin operates six power stations: Darling Downs Power Station, QLD, Roma Power Station, QLD, Mortlake Power Station, VIC, Ladbroke Grove Power Station, SA, Quarantine Power Station, SA, and Uranquinty Power Station, NSW. Their renewable energy portfolio includes Wind energy, Solar, and Hydroelectricity.  

It is one of the country’s key gas producers and holders of significant gas reserves. Since Origin holds a significant proportion of Australia’s gas reserves being part of the Australia Pacific LNG joint venture located on the east coast of Australia.

Origin Energy abides by what they call Our Compass, which guides the company in making good decisions.  The Purpose of the company is to always aspire to lead and deliver today’s energy needs.  It also searches and innovates in order to create tomorrow’s energy solutions.  Origin is guided by the following principles:  due care, add value, sustainability, diversity, alignment, and transparency.  The company behaves according to the following values: caring, listening, learning, and delivering.  

Origin has a very clear strategy of connecting resources to markets.  It is targeted at its two businesses with three priorities. These strategies are designed for Origin to improve their performance. Their two business focuses are to be a regional leader in Energy Markets and to have a regionally significant position in natural gas and LNG production. Their three priorities are improving returns and growing renewables, improving competitiveness and delivering growth in natural gas and LNG, and capital management and funding.

Origin uses four key measures to check whether they are adhering to their commitments. The first measure is to the Total Recordable Injury Frequency Rate (TRIFR).  Their current rating is 3.8, which is the lowest ever and a significant improvement from the previous year.  The next measure is total shareholder return for financial performance; the next is net promoter score for customer advocacy.  The last measure is engagement survey for people at Origin. Their current employee engagement score is 52, versus 47 in the previous year.

Origin is an innovative company that has helped more than 75,000 Australians install solar and harness solar energy.  In Victoria, Origin introduced the very first smart energy solutions for the home. It is also the first company in Australia to introduce a residential and business solution for charging electric vehicles.

As Origin looks into the future and considers the growing global demand for energy and concerns for greater energy efficiency, it is working hard to provide sustainable energy solutions for the future.

In fact, Origin was the very first energy company in the entire world to sign up under the ‘We Mean Business’ coalition, a global group that recognizes the transition to low carbon economy to secure sustainable economic growth and prosperity for all. Here are origin’s 7 Carbon Commitments under the coalition: (1) report climate change information in mainstream reports; (2) undertake responsible corporate engagement in climate policy; (3) adopt a science-based emission reduction target which will see the emission intensity of the energy we deliver through our fuel and generation portfolio reduce over time, in line with the IEA 450 scenario; (4) set measures to factor in a cost of carbon internally to materially affect investment decisions to drive down carbon emissions; (5) become Australia’s leading renewable and low carbon energy provider, helping our customers to procure electricity from renewable sources and committing to procure 100 per cent of energy from renewable sources for our office premises and, where possible, all of our other operations by 2050; (6) reduce short-lived climate pollutants; (7) remove commodity-driven deforestation from all supply chains.

  • Why do I have to pay my gas bills and electricity separately?

Your electricity and natural gas bills are separate because you have separate agreements or contracts with Origin for the supply of your electricity and natural gas. Each electricity or natural gas contract has its own account and bills for that account are issued to you for your use of that energy type.

  • Can I pay my bill from my bank account?

  • I just paid my instalment, why do I still see the Next Instalment amount?

When you are on EasiPay, your next instalment will emerge in the app as soon as your latest instalment date has passed. You can see the time the payment is due as “debited on”.

  • What is an instalment?

Your next instalment is the next payment due for your EasiPay payment plan.

  • How do I set up or change my EasiPay payment plan?

  • How does this “Alert Me When You Send Me a New Bill” alert work?

The Origin Energy App will confer you a notification halfway through your billing period to let you know how much your bill is likely to be.

As your billing period can be quarterly, bi-monthly or monthly, you’ll get notifications 45 days into your billing period, 30 days into your billing period or 15 days into your billing period.

  • What information do the Costs graphs explicate me?

The Costs graphs reveal the cost of the electricity or regular gas you used over a period. You can see your four multiple recent bills and the consolidated value of the four bills.

  • The day Costs show you the cost for each hour and the total cost for that day (for electricity with smart meters only).
  • The month Costs dispense you the cost for each day and the total cost for that month (for electricity with smart meters only).
  • The year Costs tell you the cost for each month and the total cost for that year.
  • Why is my average cost negative?

If you own solar panels, your solar feed-in tariff, i.e., the amount they pay you for the solar energy you feed into the grid – gets deducted from your usage Costs. If your solar feed-in tariff were higher than your usage, your average cost would be detrimental for that period.

  • How correct is my Costs information?

If you own a smart meter, your electricity Costs report will be two days old. This is how long it takes your distributor to send them your usage data.

If you hold a basic meter, your electricity Costs information will be up to your last meter read. The data from your meter read takes two days to appear in the App as that’s how long it makes your distributor send them your usage data.

Your natural gas Costs report will be done to your last meter read. The information from your meter read takes two days to appear in the App as that’s how long it makes your distributor send them your usage data.
