how energy discounts work

discount off usage

This is based off how much energy you’ve used in a billing cycle. It’s one of the most common discounts around.

discount off supply

Your energy usage may increase or decrease from month to month, but you’ll still be charged a fixed daily rate for energy supply. Few energy providers offer a discount off supply, but we’re stoked to say we do.

pay on time discounts

Pay on time or before your electronic bill is due and save – simple, right? This discount applies to many energy plans, so make sure you make the most of it and save on every power bill.

Feed-in tariffs from excess solar

Solar panels can’t store extra power, so if you don’t use all the energy your solar panels generate it’ll be sent back to the power grid. The awesome news? Your energy provider can pay you for that excess energy.

our simple tips for comparing energy discounts

check the discount & usage and supply rates

When you’re weighing up your energy options, look at both the discounted amount and usage and supply rates to secure the best deal for your home. You need to compare both usage and supply rates (and whether discounts apply to one, or both of these rates).

Don’t make the common mistake of signing up to what sounds like a big energy discount without understanding the base rate you’ll get charged.

find out if the discount has an expiry date, if any

Energy prices differ from between distributors and also from state to state. Most Australian states have deregulated electricity markets, meaning that suppliers (like us) dictate the pricing rather than state governments. Do your research and see what applies to your home state.

energy concessions

Energy discounts received are off usage and energy supply rates and are applied either before, or after concessions in accordance with the relevant state concession rules and will be applied when you pay your electronic bill on time - discounts are applied as a credit to your next, or final bill.

Each state has different concession eligibility. Customers can discover if they are eligible for energy rebates or concessions here. If eligible you may need to fill out the concession form, if further assistance is needed, please contact us.

solar power rebates

When your solar panel system generates excess power it is unable to store it. It can however be fed back into the power grid for other households to consume.

Energy suppliers (like us) will pay feed-in tariffs to compensate you for the solar power you supplied, this can result in significant financial returns, helping you manage your future energy bills.
