Origin cannot transfer your concession, you must contact ConcessionsSA once you have received your first electricity bill.

  • a guaranteed ongoing 11% off gas usage and supply charges (Origin will provide customers 20 days' notice of any changes)
  • flexible payment options
  • no late payment, processing, paper bill, credit card or exit fees.
