Glow Power Energy Plans

Glow Power usually offers one to two market offers across NSW, QLD, SA and Tasmania. However, these plans differ slightly from state to state.

Glowpower Saver

Glowpower Saver is a variable rate plan on an ongoing contract with no exit fees. It offers monthly billing options too. This deal is only available in NSW, QLD and Tasmania.

Everyday Saver

Similar to the above plan, Everyday Saver is a variable rate plan with a monthly billing cycle. This offer is also on an ongoing contract and has no exit fees. Only residents in South Australia have access to the Everyday Saver plan.

Digital Saver

Exclusive to NSW, Digital Saver offers variable rates to customers on an ongoing contract. Similar to the above plans, this offer also has no exit fees and monthly billing options available. The main point of difference for bill-payers in NSW on this offer is that the usage and supply rates a slightly lower than those on the Glowpower Saver deal.

Additionally, Glow Power also offers a standard product which is in line with the default tariff pricing.

Given that Glow Power is still relatively new, 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.
