Our 'Why'



We're so done with the traditional energy model. Rather than whinge, we decided to do something about it. Our goal is for customers to be able to use as much clean energy as they need to live comfortable lives at a great value price they can control. Here are the first things we’re doing about it:


Fixed fee: We don’t earn money from the amount of energy you use. Instead, our $4.50/week membership gives you usage rates at the cheapest price we can get them. That’s all we earn for providing this service and it makes us nice and cheap.

Solar friendly: If you have solar, we’ll pay you a big feed in tariff for anything you don’t use.

Support great organisations: We proudly support organisations that are doing great things: charities, communities, schools and groups that are developing new, local renewable energy projects.


Carbon neutral: We buy carbon offsets for 100% of the energy we provide to home and business customers, as well as 100% of the energy we use running Energy Locals, at no extra cost to you.

100% Aussie owned and operated: Are you done with rubbish customer service? Our entire team is right here in Australia and provides customers with epic service - just check our online reviews.

Simple rates: Step rates, 4 decimal points, small print that costs hundreds of dollars. Not here. We offer super simple tariffs that make comparing prices easy.

Smart meters and smart data: Got a smart meter already? Our online portal will show you half hourly usage. Not got one yet? We can have one installed cheaply and quickly.



Storage: We proudly support one of the world's largest battery storage customers so customers can help keep the grid stable while benefiting from fixed cost bills that have just one zero.

Solar installers: Solar is going off! We help solar installers get digital meters installed - fast - so customers can lean on the sun a little faster.

Peer-to-peer power: Not everyone has the right roof, garage or bank balance for new energy hardware. That's why we're actively working on a super-technical project to enable energy sharing between customers.

Rum: Huh? yes, rum. We buy our power in NSW from a power station that takes waste sugar cane, dries it out and creates enough power for about 60,000 homes. Another byproduct of sugar production from the very same crops - bagasse - is used by Lord Byron Distillery to make rum. Cheers!
