Where is Powerdirect available?

Powerdirect supplies electricity to residents as well as businesses across Victoria, New South Wales, South Australia, Queensland and the Australian Capital Territory. If you’re looking for electricity packages in one of these areas, you may be eligible to apply to Powerdirect.

Powerdirect electricity plans and packages

You can choose from a number of electricity packages offered by Powerdirect. Essentially, there are two kinds of electricity plans that you can choose from - a Standard Retail Contract and a Market Contract. The former is a contract governed by the energy regulator in your state. The rates and terms for your plan are decided by the regulator in this case. Whereas a Market Contract is an energy plan offered specifically by Powerdirect and the rates and terms may differ from the Standard Retail Contract.

In general, plans and pricing vary depending on where you live which is why it’s so important to compare plans in your area. For instance, while in one state Powerdirect have the option to go for flexible pricing where different electricity rates apply for different times of the day, in another you could be eligible for a discount off your usage charges if you sign up for a long term contract.

Great!

Have not had a problem at all so far. Their bills arrive with plenty of time to pay them off unlike other energy providers such as Origin.
