A quick review of amaysim Energy

Pros

  • Electricity to residents of NSW, VIC, QLD, and SA.
  • Natural gas to NSW and VIC.
  • Subscription based plans are a new way to buy energy and may be worth looking into.

Cons

  • Large feed-in tariffs on their dedicated solar plans, but be careful of their base usage and supply rates.

What plans are offered by amaysim Energy?

Electric

Electricity

Simple variable rate electricity with no contract or exit fees, billed monthly. Does not have any special discounts or offers attached to it.

This is the same as the Classic electricity plan, but for customers with solar panel systems. It provides a solar feed-in tariff to offset regular usage rates.

If you live in QLD, NSW, or VIC, you can buy a subscription plan. Under one of these, you pay a fixed amount monthly for a particular energy allowance, ranging from $80 for 220kWh to $280 for 920kWh. Unused energy rolls over from one month to the next, and if you use up all your energy you'll automatically be charged for a top up equal to one-quarter your monthly allowance.

Gas

Gas

This plan provides natural gas to NSW and VIC residents on a variable rate with no special discounts or conditions. You will be billed monthly.

Solar panel

Does amaysim Energy offer solar?

Amaysim doesn't do solar installations themselves, but if you have solar panels already set up you'll be paid a solar feed-in tariff for each bit of energy you feed back into the power grid. The feed-in tariffs on their solar plans are typically well above average for their state.

Green energy

How green is amaysim Energy?

Amaysim only scored a 3.3/10 on the Green Electricity Guide, putting it in the bottom quarter of Australian energy retailers. It doesn't provide carbon offsets, has no hand in power management schemes, and does not have great policies on either fossil fuels or emissions.

On top of this, amaysim isn't GreenPower accredited, so customers can't guarantee any of their energy is offset by renewable sources.

Tag discount

Does amaysim Energy offer any special incentives to sign up?

No at the moment. We'll update this page if amaysim Energy decides to add any incentives.

Mobile phone

Can I manage my plan from my phone?

Yes, you can access comprehensive plan management and usage history with the amaysim Energy app, which is available on both iOS and Android. There's a number of other functions, like topping up your account or customising your plan settings.

Important notes: The estimated price we show by default is based on a single rate tariff. On your bill this might be known as a 'peak tariff', 'peak only' or an 'anytime tariff'. There are other tariff types available to customers and you may need to contact your provider if you are on these tariffs:

  • Single rate with a controlled load
  • Time of use
  • Time of use with a controlled load

The price estimate should not be used as an official quote, but an indication of what your costs may be on the plan. It varies based on whether you provide us with your bill details. You can learn more here.
