  • 2.3. To the extent something in these terms and conditions is inconsistent with your Energy Agreement, the terms of your Energy Agreement will prevail.
  • 2.4. These terms and conditions do not limit other rights we may have to end your Energy Agreement or disconnect your energy supply under your Energy Agreement or by law.

3. ELIGIBILITY

  • 3.1. To be eligible for Cash-back Payments:
    1. you must be on an Origin electricity and/or gas market offer and Origin must be and remain your electricity retailer and/or gas retailer at your Rental Address;

    7. you agree to pay the Energy Prepayment through your RentPay account on the same frequency as your Rental Payment (i.e. weekly, fortnightly or monthly) by the Energy Prepayment Due Date.

4. ENERGY PREPAYMENT

  • 4.1. The Energy Prepayment will be an amount determined by you based on your estimated energy usage and must be between a minimum and maximum amount determined by us (which will be set out when you set up your Energy Prepayment in RentPay). Where you have both an Origin electricity account and gas account, there will be a separate Energy Prepayment for each.
  • 4.2. Your Origin bill will be based on your actual energy consumption at your Rental Address.
  • 4.3. You acknowledge that we make no representations that your Energy Prepayments will be sufficient to pay the entirety of your Origin bill. We will not adjust, or recommend that you adjust, your Energy Prepayment amount to reflect your energy usage.

  • 4.5. Energy Prepayments will appear as a credit on your respective Origin electricity or gas bill (as the case may be).
  • 4.6. Where the total of your Energy Prepayments for a billing period is:
    1. less than the amount of your Origin Invoice, you must pay the remaining amount by the due date on your Origin bill; or
    2. more than the amount of your Origin bill, the difference between the Energy Prepayment and the amount of your Origin bill will appear as a credit on your next Origin Invoice.
  • 4.7. You acknowledge that it may take up to 5 business days for any Energy Prepayments to be reflected in your Origin energy account.
  • 4.8. You acknowledge that paying Energy Prepayments through RentPay does not offer you the same protections as an Origin EasiPay payment plan. If you want to know more about Origin’s EasiPay or other payment plans or are having trouble paying your bill, please contact Origin on [13 24 61].
