Kogan Energy review

Online retail giant Kogan also offers electricity and gas plans in various states across Australia thanks to its partnership with Powershop.

Only VIC and NSW households can sign up with Kogan Energy for both energy types, whereas those in QLD and SA are only able to apply for an electricity plan.

Kogan Energy's prices aren't always the cheapest around so you'll need to decide if it's worth signing up for perks such as a free Kogan First membership.

Pros

  • Free Kogan First membership for 12 months valued at $99
  • Offers an app to help you manage your bills and track energy usage

Cons

  • No bundling discounts for internet and energy

Is Kogan Energy environmentally friendly?

We normally look at The Green Electricity Guide by Greenpeace in order to determine green credentials of different providers.

However, Kogan Energy was not included as part of the research given it's technically using the same resources as Powershop.

Powershop used to be one of the greenest energy providers around but its acquisition by Shell has dampened its status.

Even on its own, Kogan Energy doesn't offer much for environmentally conscious Aussies. You don't get carbon-neutral plans or the option to add on GreenPower.

GreenPower is a government-led initiative that allows the retailer to measure and match your power usage with renewable energy so you can offset your emissions.
