Power retailers are like clothing, one size does not fit all, or even most! At Lightforce, we are hesitant to suggest one retailer as a blanket rule.
Many different factors can change your power bill:
- The area you reside.
- How much energy you use each day and when you consume that energy.
- Whether you are generating energy on your site or not.
- Whether you are comfortable signing into a long-term contract or prefer flexibility.
- If you prefer a 100% renewable energy source or don’t care what energy you are using.
What we suggest:
If you are unphased by where/how your energy is generated then your first step is to check out Powerswitch. This is a Consumer NZ site that provides comparisons between power companies. Powerswitch currently doesn’t have a feature to show Solar credit prices so we suggest getting a top three from their site and calling the power companies directly.
Have a home battery? Or Electric Vehicle (EV)?
Mention this when speaking to your potential power company!
There are more options out there for a free hour of power or “off-peak” power prices which means you can grid-charge your home battery/EV for a fraction of the price of normal power. Utilise it.
