Monthly Specials are only available a few times a month, so you have to be quick to get them. They’re a bigger discount than the Power Saver on usually about a day’s worth of usage. Follow us on social media so you don’t miss out on these extra special savings.

Monthly Specials

We like to throw in a saving surprise a couple of times a month for our customers. Only available for a limited time and for a limited amount of energy.

How to use

Take a look at how much you spend per day on energy via the app or your online account. Then calculate how many days of energy you’d like the Powerpack to cover. For example, if you’re wanting to cover a week’s worth of power and you’re using about $4 per day, you’ll want to buy $28 worth of the Powerpack (plus the relevant GreenPower premium). This Powerpack also gives you the flexibility to buy as much or as little as you want.

Green Power Saver

The GreenPower Saver is – as its name suggests – a little bit greener than the regular Power Saver. It will still save you off your Auto Pay rates, and includes an 5.5c premium for every kWh of power it covers.

Your Community Energy

Want to save and contribute to community renewable energy projects? Then this Powerpack is for you! Not only will you save off your Auto Pay rate you'll also contribute a 6.6c/kWh premium which is used to fund community renewable energy projects around the country (and soon, the world).

How to use

Take a look at how much we’re estimating this pack will cost you via our app or online account. If we’re estimating that you’ll be using about $4 per day next month and the Future Pack is worth five days of energy, it’ll cost you about $20. You can get a max of two packs each month.

Future Packs

Hop into a savings time machine by grabbing a Future Pack (or two). Future Packs make it super easy to save on a few days' worth of power to cover your usage for the next month or the month after.

How to use

Take a look at how much we’re estimating this pack will cost you via our app or online account. If we’re estimating that you’ll be using about $4 per day for the month this Super Future Pack covers, and the pack is worth seven days of energy, it’ll cost you about $28.

Super Future Packs

You can't predict the future, but at least you can save big off our Auto Pay rates. Just charge up with a Super Future Pack and get the biggest discount possible! Plus the further in the past you buy them, the more future savings you score!

How to use

If you don’t top up your account in full at the end of your billing period with one of the discounted Powerpacks, we use the Auto Pay pack to automatically cover any shortfall. So if you’re using about $4 per day and you’re behind by two days at bill time, it will cost you about $8. Want to save more? The Mega, Saver and Future Powerpacks will put more dollars back in your pocket.

Auto Pay

This Powerpack gives you our great default rate which we charge automatically at the end of your billing period if you haven’t bought any of the discounted Powerpacks available to you.
