We live up to our promise of transparency by containing the cost associated with running Energy Locals in a $4.50/week membership (inc GST). After that, you pay all wholesale energy and network costs at the same rate that we can get them for with zero added profit.
What do we do with the membership
We use this to run our business and pay our lovely 100% Australian-based team. It equates to a much lower margin than other retailers chase. From the membership we give $1 per week to one of our amazing partners, which include the likes of Cancer Council.
How does this approach help you?
Our incentives are aligned with yours. That's very unusual for an energy company. While our competitors have nightmares about you halving your usage by installing solar or becoming more efficient, we'd love to help you with that because we don't earn money from the amount of energy you use.
