Move In-surance is Momentum Energy’s promise to customers moving house that we will connect your electricity on the day you want it, provided you:

  • are a residential move in customer;
  • arrange your move with us directly (online or by phone);
  • advise us of the date (not a weekend or public holiday) you want to move with at least one business dayThis excludes weekends and public holidays. Check the public holidays specific to the state your property is in.’s notice (but no more than 90 days in advance). If you are wanting next business day electricity connection, you must notify us before 12 noon (your local time) on the business day prior;
  • provide clear and safe access to the meter, and meet any other safety requirements which we require;
  • have ensured the main switch is in the off position before connection; and
  • are moving to an address which has been connected for the last 12 months.

If you qualify for Move In-surance and Momentum Energy fails to connect your electricity by 11:59:59pm on your selected day, you may call us on 1800 627 228 (Monday to Friday 8:00am – 6:00pm AEST) up to 3 weeks after your requested move-in date to let us know and we will credit your first electricity bill with $100 (GST incl).

This $100 (GST incl) credit may not be applied against or transferred to any other account and is not redeemable for cash – for example, if you leave Momentum Energy before receiving your first bill, you will not be entitled to have this credit paid out to you. Only one credit will be applied per customer per address per move (i.e. multiple failures for the one move at the same address will not result in multiple credits)
