Powershop is a 100% online energy company owned by Meridian Energy - the largest renewable generator with wind farms and hydro assets across Australia. They’re Australia’s only energy retailer to be certified 100% carbon neutral, and they offset all of the emissions associated with their operations and customer energy usage. Unique to other providers, Powershop lets their customers prepay for their electricity using online tools and apps. This also allows consumers to pay for their electricity consumption when it suits them.
Powershop electricity is currently available to customers in New South Wales, Victoria and south-east Queensland.
Powershop provide a different way of paying for your electricity. They offer specialised ‘Powerpacks’, which let their customers take control of their electricity bills by showing them how much energy they are using and how much it is costing them. Powerpacks can be purchased online or through the Powershop mobile app to pay for previous, current or future electricity services. Powerpacks often carry discounts and special prices, which encourage users to save on their daily usage.
Or if you’re after a less hands on approach, there is always the option to set up a credit card or direct debit payment that will be billed monthly.
Keep tags on your energy usage with Powershops online tools and app to track your electricity use, purchase Powerpacks and to manage your account.
Your Powershop electricity bill can be paid using a credit card, direct debit account or via internet banking.
Powershop claimed their title as Australia’s Greenest Power Company in the Greenpeace Energy Green Electricity Guide in 2018 for a third year running for supporting 100% renewable generation and offsetting all carbon emissions at no cost to their customers.
Powershop doesn’t charge any withdrawal fees and consumers are able to switch to another plan at any time. There are also no fees on credit card transactions.
Powershop offer concession prices for customers with a Commonwealth Health Care Card, Pensioner Concession Card, Veteran Affairs Concession Card or a Low Income Health Care Card. And for every friend you recommend to Powershop (once they switch), you’ll both be awarded a $75 power credit in your account.
Organising power connections when you are switching or moving home is a simple process with Powershop’s online platform - all they need are a few simple details.
If you’re switching providers, Powershop will contact your old supplier for you to arrange the switch, and if your current provider charges a termination fee, Powershop will also cover you with for up to $75. This process will take around 3-4 weeks, and after sign up there is a 60 day change of mind guarantee. If Powershop is not for you, you are free to switch providers and any prepaid unused electricity will be refunded back to you.
If you’re moving homes you will need to contact Powershop 3-4 days before you relocate in order to organise your new electricity connection. They have a next business day connection for most areas and don’t charge any set up fees so you can move stress-free.

Our bills have never been so cheap seriously. It's amazing. THE PROS ARE DEFINITELY THE 75-100 QTR PRICES . BUT THE CONS ARE ITS PREPAID ENERGY SO IF YOU FORGET TO BUY A POWER PACK OR 2 THE POWER GOES OFF JUST AS EASY AA IT IS TO TURN ON. HIGHLY RECOMMEND AND I DON'T KNOW WHY EVERYONE ELSE HASN'T SWITCHED ON SERIOUS PEOPLE ARE MISSING OUT.
I like that the choice is mine, I either pay for power before I use it, at a rate which is discounted, or I can just pay a bill based on their base rates. Their base rates aren't that competitive but when I buy 'packs' of power up front I have the opportunity to make substantial savings. Our power usage is pretty high as we are rural customers who have to pump our own water and don't have access to natural gas. There are plenty of options to buy green power. I don't have to wade through complicated bonus offers which when it comes down to it don't apply to us as we can't bundle gas and electricity. Easy to use and navigate website, many different payment options.
