Looking for The Best Power (Energy) Plan with Best Incentives

Hi I am looking for the best deal for power (no Gas required). I live in Mangere, Auckland.
On the price comparison online page came out with the following results-
1)Energy Online
2)Meridian Energy
3)Contact Energy.

I would appreciate any feedback taking into consideration any incentive offers. TIA



    Hi KBNZ

    We use electric kiwi. It has no contract, low rates and a free hour of power a day, which is great for using high power appliances such as the dish washer and clothes drier. The hour can be adjusted daily to what suits your needs. By using this feature we save about 20% per month on rival companies.
    There's also a scheme where a recommendation gains a $50 credit for the recommender and the new customer. I'm happy to be that person.



    We are also with Electric Kiwi and our hour of power works out to be about 15% of our usage.
    Are you able to provide more details of your current usage? Kw/h usage per month, what you currently pay, fixed costs and unit costs.

    Pretty much with Electric Kiwi if you can cram as much power hungry usage during your free hour of power, and the kw/h and fixed costs are competitive, you can easily save 15%. Examples being drier, dishwasher, hot water cyclinder, heat pumps/heaters, oven.


    Grab one of your latest power bills, give them a call and ask for their best deal. I was offered deals better than those on the powerswitch website. You can then take the best deal back to your existing provider and see if they will beat it.


    It comes down to daily charge and cost per unit. Bring up your current bill, phone these companies and ask how they can do better. Also let ur existing company know that you are looking to switch, they might even conjure up an offer to not lose you. I agree with previous posters, defs check out the insentives that these companies offert, didn't meridian wave free 200 around to temp switch not Long ago? some retailers have free hour of power, others can be bundled with internet for extra discount , I get 12% from prompt payment and direct debi, so that's not insignificant. Find what the catches are for any offer, sometimes you have to agree to not change providers for a fixed period to have a better deal. Find out if ur quoted rate is likely to change in near future, mercury promised no raise till early 2019

    I'd favor Flick if I'm not in a big family, this really just means that so we can be decsiplined and have better control over our power usage. Flick charge is calculated based on hourly rate, so sometimes it's 13c per KWh sometimes 30, don't want to be running the heater for the half hour when it's 30c .


    I am on Meridian Naked Plan
    No discounts but it works out cheaper than the ones that give you a discount.
    Will look again before winter

    It makes a difference which site you use to compare prices

    I use consumer price watch
