Is People right for me?

  • What does People Energy offer? Electricity in Victoria.
  • Product highlights: No lock-in contracts, no early termination fees and offers several payment options.

People Energy electricity

People Energy is a small energy retailer in Victoria. The company previously offered electricity services in New South Wales, Queensland and South Australia, and may still have existing customers in these states. However, the company now only accepts new residential and business customers in Victoria.

Residential customers can take advantage of a price matching offer if they receive a more competitive comparable offer from another provider. If People can't match or beat the offer, any termination fees will be waived. However, the provider also states that residential plans have no lock-in contracts and no early termination fees, so you are free to switch providers even without the price matching offer.

Both residential and business customers can choose from paper or electronic billing options.

Can I get solar power?

While it doesn't offer solar-specific plans, the retailer does give solar rebates to customers who already have solar panel systems installed. Your solar rebates will depend on your location and your tariff type.

If you are a new solar customer, you'll have to arrange solar panel installation before you can receive a rebate through People Energy.

Can I get GreenPower?

No, People Energy isn't GreenPower accredited.
