Glow Power Energy Plans
Glow Power has just the sole market offer in NSW and QLD, named the ‘Everyday Saver’. This plan has variable rates, no exit fees or lock-in contracts. In addition, Glow Power also offers a standard product which is in line with the default tariff pricing.
Glow Power Everyday Saver
The Everyday Saver is a variable rate plan, featuring a large pay on time discount off electricity usage charges. This product has a monthly billing cycle which requires customers to sign up online and pay by direct debit. Bills and any correspondence must also be received by email.
Given that Glow Power is still in its infancy in Australia, account management and online tools still appear to be fairly basic. Customers can, however, create an account to pay bills online. The Glow Power website also has a frequently asked questions (FAQs) section where customers can browse a range of energy-related queries.
Glow Power Solar
Customers can expect a fairly average feed-in tariff in NSW and QLD, with no exclusive solar deals available to date. Here are the solar feed-in tariffs (FiTs) currently offered by Glow Power on the Everyday Saver plan:
- NSW: 7c/kWh
- QLD: 7c/kWh
Glow Power Business Energy
Mirroring its residential deal, Glow Power also offers the Everyday Saver plan to small business customers. Glow Power business electricity plans come with no exit fees or lock-in contracts, but it’s recommended to get in contact directly for an accurate quote based on specific energy needs.
Is Glow Power right for me?
Glow Power’s entrance to the retail energy market is a positive sign for those looking past some of the more established brands like Origin and AGL, but the true value of this provider seems to be the pay on time discount. Without the conditional discount, Glow Power’s electricity rates are average, so customers will need to stay on top of bills and ensure they’re paid on or before the due date.
Glow Power’s ongoing conditional discount could make a world of difference to bill-payers who prefer to set and forget, as long as you continue to meet the conditions. Given that many retailers usually have benefit periods of a year or two, meaning discounts tend to disappear after this time period, it could be suitable for Aussies who like to be rewarded for being punctual when paying bills. Just remember that Glow Power is not your only choice when it comes to energy providers, and it’s always a good idea to compare a variety of deals side-by-side.
