Powerclub are all for honesty and transparency when it comes to energy prices. They’re a not for profit retailer based in Melbourne and believe that the energy industry should work for customers, not against them.
Aussies in NSW, ACT, SA and QLD can sign up for Powerclub energy plans.
Powerclub offers both residential and business energy plans that can be taken out on either a peak or time of use tariff. Members will have access to wholesale electricity prices and services on a cost per use basis, so you’ll only pay for the energy you use and the services you ask for.
Powerclub are forward thinkers and want to give customers more control of their bills, which is why they created the Powerclub Powerbank account. This account works to smooth out wholesale energy prices during wholesale market fluctuations. It covers the difference when prices are high and replenishes when prices are low.

And if one day you decide that Powerclub isn’t the right choice for your household, you’ll be able to leave the ‘club’ with your balance.
Once you take out an energy plan with Powerclub, you’ll be charged a $39 annual fee ($79 for business), but you won’t have to pay an exit fee.

Despite the big bills I was receiving it took a long time for me to change energy providers. Friends had told me introductory offers wouldn’t continue and my costs, in time, would revert back to where they had been. My motivation to change was further diminished by the fact that privatised power companies need to make a profit and would not differ greatly in their pricing. So I stayed where I was until I heard of PowerClub. Their approach to selling power is a result of years of research and innovative thinking outside the square to solve the problem of high energy costs. And it works. My energy bill has dropped dramatically and I actually feel proud to be a customer / member of PowerClub, a not for profit, and I never been able to say that about a power provider before!
