How to score $150 off your energy bills with Powershop

Australia’s greenest energy provider Powershop has supercharged its referral program, offering $150 to new customers who make the switch.

Not only will new customers walk away with credits on their energy bills, but existing Powershop customers will also bank $150 in bill credits for getting their friends to sign up before 30 April 2021.

Switch Your Mates’ is Powershop’s referral program, which claims it’s dedicated to providing Aussies with bigger savings heading into winter, said Chief Customer Officer at Powershop, Catherine Anderson.

“Our referral program has been designed to provide our customers with additional savings through referral credits when they recommend us to their mates. We supercharge this program a couple of times a year leading into summer and winter when the use of appliances like heaters and air-conditioners is on the rise and when we know an extra power credit would be welcome,” she said.

“Currently we’ve doubled our referral credit to $150 for both our brilliant customer who refers a friend and also for the friend who joins us.”

The initiative is part of April Climate Action Month at Powershop, which highlights the importance of consumers doing their bit for the environment.

“We’ve supercharged our referral program during April’s Climate Action Month to encourage our customers to have conversations with friends and family about their environmental footprint and to consider going carbon neutral with Powershop for their energy usage.”

All Powershop customer’s energy usage is claimed to be 100 per cent carbon neutral at zero extra cost. This means any carbon emissions produced by household usage is offset through Powershop purchasing Certified Emission Reduction certificates from sustainability projects around the globe.

It comes after new research revealed that more Aussies want greener energy but price still has the biggest influence when making a purchase decision.

New customers will receive their boosted referral credit over four instalments throughout the first nine months of opening their account. Existing customers who get their mates to switch will receive $150 credit when their friend successfully signs up on or before 30 April 2021.
