About Us

Making energy cheap, clean, and fair

Energy Locals is proudly Australian 100% based and operated. We provide individuals, small businesses, and larger commercial enterprises with clean, reliable, and cost-effective energy.

We also support developers, body corporates, industrial projects, and residents within Community Energy Networks. Our extensive experience provides technology-driven and environmentally-friendly options that save our customers money.

Not your average energy company

We know – you’ve heard that before. But hear us out…

We’re done with the traditional energy model. We believe in the science of climate change and that we can—and must—do something about it. Rather than whinge, we’re making a difference.

Our goal is to enable residential, commercial and business customers to use as much clean energy as they need to live comfortable lives at a great value price they can control.

We also help developers make sustainable and cost-effective energy solutions part of the DNA of new projects. By working with them from the very beginning to implement infrastructure that delivers the right solution for a sustainable future.

For our customers in our Community Energy Network developments, our commitment to cleaner and cost-efficient solutions is at the forefront. We invest Super fund money in technology that will produce environmental and efficiency benefits for years to come.

Two Become One

In 2021, Energy Locals and Energy Trade merged under the Energy Locals brand, so we can provide even better solutions and value to more Australians. Both companies were already working closely together and shared similar goals and values such as:

Helping customers access renewable power where they live and work without having to pay for it up front.

A shared commitment to innovation (e.g., we are part of the largest Virtual Power Plant of its kind in Australia).

Providing fantastic value to customers.

Valuing excellent customer service.

Driving a cleaner, greener future for all.

Challenging the status quo, especially with respect to transparency and fairness for customers in the energy market.

There are further details of the history of the two companies via the biographies of the founders Adrian Merrick, Julian Duggan and Darren Read in Our Team.
