Tango Energy electricity
Tango Energy launched in 2012 as the retail branch of Pacific Hydro, a renewable energy company. Pacific Hydro was founded in Australia in 1992 and has since expanded with hydro, solar and wind developments across Australia, Chile and Brazil. In 2016, the company was purchased by the State Power Investment Corporation (SPIC), a Chinese electricity producer. While Tango is foreign-owned, it operates locally out of Geelong, Victoria with a commitment to hiring local staff.
Tango offers tailored plans for residential, business and commercial customers. Though the company used to offer electricity in South Australia, services are now only available in Victoria. If you change your mind after signing up, there is a cooling-off period of 10 business days.

Does Tango Energy offer solar power?
If your home already has solar panels installed, Tango Energy offers solar plans with either a premium feed-in tariff (PFiT) or a retail feed-in tariff (RFiT). While new customers are not able to apply for a PFiT, if you already have a PFiT agreement with another retailer you can bring it across to Tango.
