Demand customers have the option to actively participate in the wholesale market to manage the procurement of their own gas, which means the customer will no longer purchase gas through a retailer.
As a self-contracting user, customers can take advantage of purchasing gas from the wholesale market and proactively manage their own gas requirements. Becoming a self-contracting user may also provide customers with other opportunities to explore ways of reducing supply and volume risks, including participating in the short term trading market.
The pathway to becoming a self-contracting user involves an application and registration process through Jemena and the Australian Energy Market Operator.
