For Home Natural Gas - Genesis Energy NZ

Whether you're looking to compare gas prices, switch gas providers or need to arrange a gas connection, as the largest gas supplier in New Zealand, we've got a smart energy solution to fit your needs.

Natural gas is available in the North island and is the efficient and eco-friendly way to heat your water and your home. Piped natural gas is constant and as gas only heats the water as you use it, you'll never have to deal with running out of hot water. It heats quickly and efficiently too – which is important, because a lot of your home energy bill comes from water heating. Natural gas is also precise and controllable, so you'll always be able to get the right temperature whether you're using it to cook or heat your home.
Natural Gas is only available in the North Island.

When you choose Genesis Energy as your natural gas supplier, you'll receive competitive gas pricing and a 10% prompt payment discount on your bill when you pay it in full and on time. Sign up both your electricity and your natural gas with us and not only will you get the convenience of receiving only one bill you'll also be entitled to our Dual Fuel discount.

Three plans for you to choose from

Chances are you already enjoy the certainty of fixed monthly price plans for many services you use daily like your broadband or mobile phone. Now, in a first for New Zealand you can do the same with your gas.

Our three new flat monthly gas plans give you the certainty of paying the same amount each month for your gas even if you use a little extra. So you can relax knowing that you won't pay more for the occasional longer shower, additional heating for sudden cold snaps or cooking for a houseful of guests.

Switch natural gas suppliers

If you're currently already connected to the gas network and would like to switch to Genesis Energy, you can either do this quickly online or via the phone on 0800 300 400.

Arrange a gas connection

If you'd like gas installed at your home, call us first on 0800 300 400 and we'll find out whether your property can be connected to the natural gas network. If you are able to receive natural gas, then our specialist team will organise the connection and meter installation for you. Setting everything up usually takes 6-8 weeks. You'll need to contact a gas fitter to do your in house installation and to help you pick out the right gas appliances.

LPG and natural gas comparison

Choosing the best type of gas supply for your home will be dependent on where you live and the appliances you want to run.

Why choose Natural Gas?

Piped natural gas requires a permanent connection to the gas network. It's the recommended option if you have a large household, a central heating system, gas fire place or are intending to use gas to heat your water.

Why choose LPG?

Bottled LPG is available throughout New Zealand and is the recommended gas option if you can't connect to the gas network or are looking to use only a small amount of gas. For example - if you're using gas for cooking.

Book a Gas Check for your gas appliances.

If you haven't had your gas or LPG appliances checked in over a year now might be a good time to do so.

Consumers and homeowners, including landlords and tenants, are responsible for ensuring the safe operation and maintenance of their gas appliances and equipment. To ensure the safety and efficiency of your gas appliance it is strongly recommended that all gas appliances are serviced annually in particular space heating appliances.

Servicing costs vary per appliance and by manufacturer. A gasfitter will be able to discuss their pricing with you in more detail.

If you live on Auckland's North Shore you can book a Gas Check from an independent, qualified, licensed gasfitter now by completing the booking form. The gasfitter will discuss the cost of the service directly with you.
