Price drop new shop NSW

Lower prices and a new look Shop.

From 1 July 2018, we’re reducing energy rates for our customers in New South Wales!

Thanks to our growing customer numbers, our group has recently invested in hydro, solar and more wind energy generation, which has meant we’ve been able to buy energy below current wholesale prices – and since wholesale prices have decreased in recent months as well – we’re able to pass these great savings on to you.

We dropped prices for all our Victorian customers earlier in the year, and now NSW customers will receive a reduction of around 3% on average off their total bill – that’s about $47 per year on average, proving that renewable energy can mean lower prices for consumers.

We hope this brings some welcome relief to households and businesses. We’ll continue to work to make the energy industry fairer, greener, more transparent and prices more affordable for our customers. Read more on the Powershop blog.

Meet the new Powershop Shop

A lot of you have let us know that the Shop is a little hard to get your head around. The Powershop model is something that no one else in the industry offers, and while we’re pretty damn proud of that we understand it might be a bit tricky.

So we’re making things even better and more transparent for you. We’re making some super exciting and important changes to the Shop that you’ll also notice from around 1 July 2018 (on top of those cheaper energy rates).

A new look for all our Powerpacks

We’ve given all our Powerpacks new faces to make it easier for you to grab the best deal to suit you.

All your favourite Powerpacks will still be available – they’ll just look different – and so will your favourite ways to purchase power.

The one Powerpack we’re saying goodbye to is the Base Rates Powerpack. It was old! It was redundant!

This is a super important change. Previously all Powerpack discounts were calculated off the Base Rates pack. Once it’s gone discounts will be calculated from the shiny new Auto Pay pack (which are your new lower rates).

You’ll see your discounts are different, but your rates are lower. Use our price change tool to see for yourself.

Here’s a cheat sheet so you can keep buying power the way it suits you.

Out with the old, in with the better!

We've given our Powerpacks a makeover. Your favourite Powerpacks may look different, but your favourite way to purchase power is still available. Here's a cheat sheet for some of your favourite packs.

Hot tip: they function exactly the same as their old versions, and help you get the same great savings.


The trusty old Online Saver will now be known as the Power Saver. Still available all the time, stock up whenever you want with as much as you want. We’ll also have the GreenPower equivalent too.



Just like the Bulk Pack, the Mega Pack gets you three months’ worth of power at a super discounted rate. Mega just sounds cooler.



Still the same pack that allows you to pay a little bit extra to help build community renewable energy projects in Australia. Our customers have raised a whopping $420K to date!



These are your new lower rates. No discount – just awesome rates. If you don’t buy any of our discounted packs (which you should because it saves you more), we’ll just automatically charge you the Auto Pay pack to cover your usage at the end of the billing period. We’ll also have the GreenPower equivalent too.



We didn’t actually change the names of the Future Packs or the Super Future Packs, we just added a fun rocket. These still get you a huge discount the further out that you buy them.



We’re getting rid of the Base Rates Powerpack. It was redundant!


This is a super important change for you because Base Rates was where we calculated the discounts from.

Now it's gone, your discounts will be calculated from the new Auto Pay pack, which represents your new lower rates.

So, while the discounts might be smaller, you're actually saving more.

We’ve got a new look for all our Powerpacks and we’ve got rid of the Base Rates pack. With new names and faces for all our Powerpacks it’ll make it easier for you to grab the best savings. Saying goodbye to Base Rates is a super important change to take notice of – because Base Rates were what we calculated all of the discounts from.

We calculate your discount off the Auto Pay pack. Because the Auto Pay rates are already competitive, when you add a discount (which you do when you buy any of the other Powerpacks in the Shop) you get an even better rate!
We’re changing it because you asked us to. We’ve listened to our customers feedback and we know that the Shop can be a little difficult to get your head around, so we made the decision to make our Shop as simple as possible. Now we just give you great rates with the Auto Pay pack and if you want to Shop for more savings (which we hope you do), jump in and get whatever Powerpack suits your needs. Use our Powerpack cheat sheet to decide which Powerpack works best for you.
