In these uncertain time, we are hearing worries from Power Compare customers about managing their power bill and how to reduce their spending on home utilities in these uncertain times.
We reckon at times like these Kiwis need a Power Company with a difference – that’s why we wanted to put a spotlight on Electric Kiwi.
Much like NZ Compare, Electric Kiwi was started by friends wanted to shake up the status quo and who believe Kiwis should be paying less. They believed that electricity options were unnecessarily complex with multiple discounts, joining specials and one-off deals made power prices hard to understand.
From humble beginnings in December 2014, Electric Kiwi have grown astronomically. There is good reason they have become a fast favourite for power customers who want to make an informed choice about power.
Electric Kiwi’s free hour of power has been a real game changer. Electric Kiwi customers get a free off-peak hour of power every day. Just choose your hour and all the electricity you use during that hour is free.
And, if you’re strategic about how you use your free hour of power it can add up to great savings. It’s a great option for people who are looking for extra savings on their power bill right now, or who may be worried about losing their prompt payment discount.
Off peak time slots for your free hour are between 9am-5pm and 9pm-7am. There’s no limit on how many times you can change it, so feel free to adjust your free hour each day to suit your power needs
Save up tasks like turning on the dishwasher, washing machine, tumble dryer, heating or vacuum cleaner for your free hour. Not only will you get a ton of chores done during your daily hour, but it will add up to big savings on your bill.
Electric Kiwi reckon that not much is life is guaranteed, but their savings are. That’s why they offer guaranteed savings* in your first year.
Simply share a recent bill from your old power company. Electric Kiwi will track your savings and you can too in the app. If you haven't saved after 12 months, we'll give you a credit to make sure you do. *T&C's apply.
Electric Kiwi’s customer app is easy to use, and has great features that allow you to control your power use. Update your hour of power, easily monitor how much power your family is using, use live chat on the app, and get bill alerts and hour of power notifications.
