Powerdirect electricity

Powerdirect was one of the first independent retailers to take advantage of energy market deregulation back in the late 1990s. Today, it's a fully owned subsidiary of AGL, offering business and residential electricity plans to customers in South Australia, Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria.

For householders, Powerdirect keeps things simple with an electricity offer available in each state.

Residential and business customers with solar power can access a feed-in tariff. GreenPower options are also available, though limited.

Can I get solar power?

If you already have solar panels installed, Powerdirect does offer a feed-in tariff as part of its plans, making it a provider to consider.

Check out our comprehensive guide on getting solar power to help you through the process.

Can I get GreenPower?

The government's GreenPower program guarantees that a retailer purchases a percentage of your electricity usage from renewable sources. Powerdirect is a certified GreenPower provider, offering the option of buying either 10% or 20% of your energy from renewable sources.

Rather than charging per kWh like many energy retailers, Powerdirect charges for GreenPower on a weekly basis. This has the benefit of ensuring consistent pricing from bill to bill, but may not reflect your actual usage.

How can I pay my energy bills?

Powerdirect doesn't currently have its own online payments portal, though it does have a number of options for bill payments

Why consider Powerdirect?

  • Home and business plans. Looking to power both your home and your business? Powerdirect offers both.
  • Solar feed-in tariffs. If you have solar panels, Powerdirect does offer feed-in tariffs to help you get the most from your solar PV system.
  • No-lock-in contracts. There's no lock-in contract, so you can switch at any time (though disconnection fees may apply).

      Hi Saptal,

      Thanks for reaching out. Just to confirm though, you have reached and not actually Powerdirect.

      If you want to switch to Powerdirect, you can complete the form above with some details about your residential electricity needs and you’ll be contacted by a consultant for an obligation-free discussion about your options. The consultant will work with you to compare a range of energy suppliers in your area.

      I hope this helps.
