Will I save money with Energy Locals? 

We hope so! We estimate that the majority of customers in NSW will save money by switching to Energy Locals. Over time those savings will grow thanks to our Australian-first promise of never increasing your prices for profit. 

If you want to see how you'll save, call us on 1300 MY ENERGY for a quote or send us a photo of your current bill and we'll do the sums for you. 

Changes

When will my prices change?

In July 2017 we reduced our prices while some others put theirs up by nearly 20%. If you join now, your prices won't change until July 2018.

Discounts

Are these rates discounted?

We build discounts into our tariffs instead of making them conditional. We only retain a fixed fee from each bill, not a per-unit margin.

Contracts

Will I be in a locked contract?

Never. We hope you'll stay if we give you great prices and top notch Australia-based service. We won't lock you into a contract and we have no exit fees.
