Adding or removing a site from your existing agreement (roll-In/roll-out)

From time to time, a council may wish to add a new site or remove a site to/from their Agreement for the Supply of Electricity.

This is termed a roll-in or roll-out and refers to the transfer of a site from one electricity provider to another.

Reasons may include:

  • Transfer of the site to Origin was not identified by council at the time of entering into the original arrangement with Origin.
  • An arrangement with another provider has recently expired providing the opportunity to transfer the site to Origin.
  • Purchase or sale of a site by council.

For this to occur, you should contact LGA Procurement who will arrange for an Origin Energy Roll-In/Roll-Out Form to be completed. 

You will need a copy of the last Electricity Account (both back and front), or at a minimum, the NMI (National Meter Identifier Number). You will also need to know the amount of both peak and off-peak energy that has been used over the past 12 months.  You can obtain this information from the last full year of invoices.

LGA Procurement will complete as much detail as possible on the correct form and send to council to be finalised and signed. When completed, the form should be emailed to LGA Procurement for lodgement with Origin Energy.

New connections/alterations/abolishments

For new connections (i.e. a new site that does not have electricity connection), alterations or abolishments your council will need to complete an SA Power Networks FORM A. Your electrician will provide the FORM A and assist with its completion.  The completed FORM A should then be emailed to LGA Procurement.

LGA Procurement will liaise with Origin Energy to facilitate the processing of your FORM A.
