Five millionth customer to connect to gas

The five millionth customer is due to connect to Australia’s gas network next month, demonstrating the continued value of clean, reliable and affordable gas to households across the nation.
A new Energy Networks Australia fact sheet brings together key statistics on the use of gas in Australian homes for heating, hot water and cooking.
Energy Networks Australia Interim CEO, Andrew Dillon, said 70% of Australian households are connected to gas and this number continues to grow.
“National gas connections have grown from 3.8 million in 2005 to 4.8 million in 2015,” Mr Dillon said.
