- Powershop has no energy plans, and strives to give all customers the best deal they can. This makes switching simpler, easier and quicker, while simultaneously making sure you’re enjoying some of the highest quality and lowest prices around. Instead of choosing a plan, simply select whether you’d prefer to get market rates, or if you plan on using the online store to get discounts.
- Once you’ve switched to Powershop you can access their online store and buy Powerpacks. These let you buy different types of power online which are used instead of your rates. If you want to go extra-green, save money by waiting for a discount and then stock up on energy, or otherwise want more control over your electricity, you can do it quickly and easily with Powerpacks.
What packages does Powershop offer?
Powershop is not a standard energy company, and has no traditional plans the way most others do. Instead, you simply choose between market rates, or discounted rates with some conditions. This option determines what type of energy you will get by default when you’re not using Powerpacks.
- Base rates: Standard costs without conditions. May be a preferable option for those who don’t plan on using the Powerpacks.
- Discount rates: Get a 4% discount, and up to another 14% off, for signing into your online Powershop at least once a month. This may be the way to go for those who plan on using Powerpacks and managing their energy plan for better value.
In all cases, Powershop has no fixed term contracts, and no lock-in contracts. You are free to come and go as you please with Powershop, at no extra cost.
