A quick review of GloBird Energy

Pros

  • Electricity and gas to NSW, VIC, and SA.
  • Reasonable discounts on bundled gas and electricity plans.

Cons

  • Extremely poor green rating and absolute minimum solar feed-in tariffs. All discounts are purely conditional.

What plans are offered by GloBird Energy?

Electric

Electricity

The simplest of all of GloBird's energy plans, available in NSW and VIC. Contains no conditional discounts, instead promising ongoing low rates. If you choose this plan, you are required to pay by direct debit as well as exclusively online billing and communications.

This is a basic variable rate electricity plan available to residents of NSW, VIC, and SA. Customers in all three states can access a tiny discount when paying by direct debit, while those in VIC and NSW can access a further small pay on time discount.

Only for Victorians. Provides electricity at a fixed rate for the first 12 months, plus a tiny conditional discount when you pay via direct debit. Bills are issued monthly rather than quarterly. Offered as a RetroSave Combo when you bundle with gas, adding a small discount off your total bill.

Only for Victorians. Has a tiny discount for paying by direct debit, and a very slightly larger discount if you pay on time. Offered as a SureSave Combo when bundled with gas, allowing you to get an additional small discount off your total bill.

The ComboElec provides an 8% (3% in SA) discount when you bundle your gas and electricity plans together with GloBird Energy and pay via direct debit.

Gas

Gas

Standard variable rate gas plan with a tiny direct debit discount in all states and small pay on time discount available in VIC and NSW.

Requires direct debit and online communications and billing. Has no other special features or conditional discounts. Not available in SA.

Equivalent to the ComboElec plan, but for gas. Bundle it together with electricity and pay by direct debit and receive an 8% discount (3% in SA).

Solar panel

Does GloBird Energy offer solar?

GloBird Energy will not install solar for you, but if you have an existing system you'll be paid somewhat minimal feed-in tariffs for solar energy you push back into the grid.

Green energy

How green is GloBird Energy?

GloBird Energy scored a 3/10 on the Green Electricity Guide, placing it in the bottom 5 of Australian energy retailers out of more than 30. They've broken renewable energy targets in the past, offer the absolute minimum in the way of solar tariffs, and don't provide any form of carbon offsets.

In addition, they have no certified GreenPower options, providing customers no way to ensure their power is at all environmentally-friendly.

Mobile phone

Can I manage my plan from my phone?

No, GloBird does not offer any plan management software or ways to manage your plan online, although you can pay bills via their website.

Get a cost estimate

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.
