1st Energy electricity plans and packages

1st Energy offer both regular electricity and solar plans to households. One great feature about 1st Energy electricity plans is there price match guarantee. As plans and tariffs change frequently, if you come across a better offer from another retailer, you’ll be able to ask 1st Energy to match the price! 

For many Aussies, it’s easier to stay on top of their electricity bill with monthly payments, which is why 1st Energy offer customers the option to pay their bill on a monthly basis. There’s also a 10% pay on time discount that comes with a lifetime benefit, which means you won’t lose your discount offer even after the contract ends. 

But there’s no trouble if a 1st Energy electricity plan isn’t the right fit for your household either, as there are no exit fees.

    They reel you in with deals but don't commit

    This provider promised the best discounts I have ever heard! However they have not lived up to their claims and the discounts offered never came good unless I call and complain! Planning to drop this company!
