Alinta Energy: Electricity and gas plans

Get guaranteed discounts for both electricity and gas customers for the first 12 months.

Is Alinta Energy right for me?

  • Product highlights: Alinta offers guaranteed discounts in most states for the first 12 months for both gas and electricity. In QLD, electricity customers receive a pay-on-time discount for the first 12 months.
  • Watch out for: Alinta isn't GreenPower certified, so you can't pay to source your energy from renewable sources. There's also no monthly billing option.

Does Alinta Energy offer solar power?

For customers in Western Australia, Alinta Energy has a solar program that tailors a solar system to your household's needs.

There are three tiers available, with all three tiers including a five-year manufacturer's warranty.

  • Solar Essentials. Designed with Trina Honey 275W panels and a Zeversolar inverter, this is the company's starting package
  • Solar Value. Combining the Trina Honey 275W panels with a Fronius inverter, this step up is designed to balance price with performance.
  • Solar Premium. LG Mono 335W panels are combined with a Fronius inverter for premium performance from the solar system.

Alinta doesn't offer a solar installation program in any other state. However, it does offer feed-in tariffs for homes that already have solar panels installed, with tariffs varying depending on your location.

Does Alinta Energy offer GreenPower?

Alinta Energy is not a certified provider of the government's GreenPower program, so if renewable energy generation is a priority for you, you will have to look elsewhere.


Alinta Energy rewards

Alinta offers its energy customers a dedicated rewards program. You need to be logged in to access the full spectrum of discounts and deals on offer, but the program does promise some significant discounts on a wide range of products and services, including the following:

  • Up to 48% off movie tickets
  • Up to 33% off attractions like Luna Park
  • Up to 5% off gift cards from leading retailers like Rebel Sport and Supercheap Auto
  • Up to 50% off electronics

The program also promises VIP promotions and competitions, leveraging Alinta's partnership with Cricket Australia.


How can I pay my Alinta Energy bills?

Need to pay your bill? Alinta accepts a wide range of payment methods. However, some plans require you to use certain payment methods in order to receive a discount, so make sure you pay attention to the requirements of your selected plan. You also can't opt for monthly billing, which can make budgeting a bit more challenging.

      Hi Warren,

      Thanks for leaving a question on finder.

      We’ve provided a comparison of electricity, gas, and solar deals in THIS page so you know what price and structure will suit your needs. Firstly, it’s always useful to have a recent bill from your current provider when comparing energy providers. We do a great job of comparing deals with energy providers, but if you’re already getting a better deal than anything on offer, it’s always good to know you’ve got the option to stick with what you’ve got.

      You can also consider requesting a callback from and energy broker so you can get a personalized quote. You can do so HERE.

      Cheers,
      Joel
