Radian Energy Review & Rates
Radian Energy is a Brisbane-based retailer, selling electricity to business and residential customers in New South Wales, Queensland and the ACT. Radian claims to be a ‘profit-for-purpose’ company that provides Aussies with affordable products and transparent pricing. Given that Radian Energy is new to market, can it live up to its promises, and are its electricity prices cheaper than average? Let’s find out in this Canstar Blue guide.
Radian Energy Plans
Grid To Go is Radian Energy’s flagship market offer, which is available on both single rate and time of use tariffs. This is a fixed rate energy plan with no contract terms, meaning rates are locked in until customers decide to leave, which has no exit fees should that happen. Grid To Go has reasonably competitive rates and a monthly billing cycle.
In addition, the retailer also offers a solar-specific plan which we’ll go into more detail a bit further down. Keep reading below to check Radian Energy electricity prices.

As a fresh face in the industry, Radian Energy does seem to propose a variety of unique selling points, like fixed rates and solar solutions. It may be a case of reviewing your current provider’s electricity rates or level of customer service to see if it’s time to switch, however given that Radian is very new, it’s difficult to tell how well this provider handles its accounts.
