Packages offered by Powerdirect  

The energy packages at Powerdirect will vary greatly depending on your state, energy use, and whether you want electricity for your home or business. Broadly speaking, they offer two types of contracts:

  • Market contract

This is a contract specific to Powerdirect in which they will set the rates, terms and conditions, plus any special offers.

  • Standard retail contract

In a Standard retail contract your energy prices will be set by the energy regulator in your state.

  • Flexible pricing (Victoria only)

Flexible pricing charges you different rates for electricity used at different times. Usually it is more expensive to use energy during the day, and less so at night. So if you use the bulk of your electricity at night then you might benefit from flexible pricing. Talk to your energy broker to find out more.

  • Greendirect

Is a package that allows you to choose a percentage of your energy to come from renewable sources. Speak to your broker about getting Greendirect and what it might mean for your supply and electricity bill.
