Fees

Browse our current fee schedule below. When you use a service we will charge the fee to your Kogan Energy account. This information will be updated from time to time as the cost of providing these services may change.

Please note that these are standard service fees. Where additional work is required by an electrician or your distributor, or you live in a rural or remote area, an additional fee may apply. We may pass on to you any fees we receive from a distributor or other third party in relation to work performed at your request or work required because you have not complied with your obligations.

It is important that you provide clear access to complete the service you have requested. If you fail to meet an arranged appointment or provide access, you will still be required to pay the fee for the service requested.

  • Electricity
  • Gas

After-hours connection fees are applicable when a request to connect power is made outside the distributor’s business hours’ time frames.

In Victoria, South East Queensland and South Australia, any request to connect power on the same day may require an after-hours connection fee.

In New South Wales, any request to connect power within two business days may require an after-hours connection fee.

Use the tabs below to navigate based on your location.
