About Us

Who are
Energy Locals

Energy Locals is proudly Australian based and operated.

Our values, service, and products and services differentiate us from typical energy companies.

Aside from delivering cost-effective energy, we’re passionate about transparency, our Australian-based customer service, technology, and the environment. We have a social conscience too.

We provide sustainable cost-effective energy to residents and businesses but do so much more. And we go beyond offering expertise, products, and services to developers so they can improve cost-effectiveness while reducing their reliance on the grid with green energy solutions.

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.

Whether you are a resident looking for a better energy plan or a developer wanting to partner with us, we can help.

Building a sustainable future

Energy Locals is a portfolio company of Quinbrook Infrastructure Partners, one of the world’s leading investors in low carbon and renewable energy infrastructure, and we represent Quinbrook’s distributed energy solution platform in Australia.
