Powershop offer the worst feed in tariff in Australia, if you have solar panels then this company should be avoided. There are much better deals out there. Powershop incorrectly advises being a green energy provider but with awful feed it tariffs it is not a company that cares about renewable energy, just profits that solar owners pay for. Avoid Powershop and choose another provider that offers better deals, there are heaps out there.
I like it because: 1. It's a strong supporter of green energy 2. Cooperative and easy to deal with 3. Relatively cheap prices
Powershop is a new energy provider and so far I am totally happy with my experience after switching to this provider. I have received a discount on my first bill already.
