GloBird Energy review

GloBird Energy is a smaller retailer offering big savings.

Its plans tend to be on the cheaper end and often shows up on our list as one of the cheapest energy providers.

Extra conditional discounts on top of its low cost make it even more attractive to those looking to cut back on their energy bill.

Pros

  • Local customer support based in Melbourne
  • Pay on time and direct debit discounts

Cons

  • Expensive solar plans
  • No mobile app to manage your plan or track usage

Is GloBird Energy environmentally friendly?

Green Electricity Guide Rating: 3.54/10

GloBird Energy ranks 28th (out of 39 providers) in the 2022 Green Electricity Guide rankings.

Unlike several other retailers, GloBird isn't involved in fossil fuel extraction at all. However, it still loses points for a lack of transparency on where it sources its electricity from.

It still buys energy from the open market (where coal is the dominant generating source) and has no strong climate policy.
