How does Sumo determine price?

Prices are determined based on tariffs in your area. Simply enter your postcode on Sumo's website to find out what the rates are in your area.

Does Sumo offer solar panels?

Sumo does not offer solar panels, but it does pay a feed-in tariff to eligible customers who have them.

  • If you have solar panels installed on your home or business, solar feed-in tariffs pay you for any excess power you divert back to the grid.
  • Contact Sumo prior to installing photovoltaic systems to find out if you’ll be eligible for feed-in tariffs.
  • If you already have solar panels and are already claiming feed-in tariffs, then you can continue to do so even after switching to Sumo. Contact Sumo for the applicable feed-in tariff rate.

How do I sign up with Sumo?

The easiest way to join is simply by going online to choose your plan, check its rates and sign up.

Are there any concessions or rebates available?

Concession options available with Sumo plans include:

  • Annual electricity concession. Eligible Victorian concession card holders can get a 17.5% discount on their household electricity bills all year.
  • Service to property charge concession. If your household has very low energy usage, where the usage charge is less than the service charge, you may be eligible for a service to property charge concession.
  • Controlled load electricity concession. Concession card holders who are paying a controlled load tariff for separately metered electric hot water or slab heating are able to claim a 13% discount.
  • Electricity transfer fee waiver. Sumo can waive fees that normally apply when concession cardholders move house.
  • Life support concession. You are able to claim a quarterly discount on electricity bills if a member of your household uses an eligible life support machine.
  • Medical cooling concession. If an eligible concession card holding member of your household has a health condition which affects their ability to regulate body temperature then you can claim a 17.5% discount from 1 November to 30 April each year. Eligible conditions include Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, lymphoedema, fibromyalgia, poliomyelitis and motor neurone disease.
  • Utility relief grant scheme. If you’re experiencing a temporary financial crisis, you can apply for the utility relief grant scheme. To apply, call Sumo on 13 88 60, or the Victorian government concessions line on 1800 658 521.
