Plans offered breakdown

QEnergy has two market offers on electricity for customers in QLD, NSW, VIC, and SA, as well as a standing offer. Plans do not have connection or disconnection fees when you move.

Energy Electricity

A variable rate electricity plan with no connection or disconnection fees and a 2 year benefit period. You can only sign up for this plan if you're a new customer of QEnergy, pay by direct debit, and you sign up online.

This is the same plan as the Home Saver Lite, but does not require online sign up. Variable rate power on a two-year plan with direct debit payment.

The Home Your Way plan is a standing offer that's exactly equal to the reference price in your state, with no special discounts or features.

Does Qenergy offer solar?

QEnergy does not install solar panels, but it will pay you a feed-in tariff for any excess energy you feed back into the power grid with an existing solar system.

How green is QEnergy?

QEnergy scored a 3.5/10 on the Green Electricity Guide, putting it in the bottom third of Australian retailers. They have little in the way of carbon offsets or progressive fossil fuel policies, and their solar tariffs are fairly minimal.

However, they do have GreenPower options ranging between 10 and 100% on their power plans. Businesses can access QGreen, which lets businesses put the GreenPower logo on their documentation when they purchase 10% or more GreenPower.

Does QEnergy offer any special incentives to sign up?

  • SmoothPay. If you want, you can sign up for QEnergy's SmoothPay to increase the predictability of your bills. This splits your energy payments into 12 equal monthly installments across the year, calculated on your normal energy usage. You'll be charged for excess use and your payments will be reduced if you use less than estimated.

Can I manage my plan from my phone?

No, there's no way to manage your plan from your phone.

    Can I change my meter to a solar buy back meter

      Hello Jennifer,

      Thank you for your inquiry. If you wish to change your meter to a solar buy back meter you can check this page. This page will serve as a guide for the things you may need to consider. No one can guarantee that having solar panels installed will insulate your business from expense, but it is important to know that there are other ways of doing things. It’s worth talking to a specialist energy consultant about your situation, seeing what you might stand to gain from making the switch.

      Hope this helps. Should you have further questions or clarifications, please do not hesitate to contact us again.

      Best Regards,
      Robyn
