Price spikes happen less than 0.1% of the time
For a few hours each year, wholesale prices can climb above $3/kWh. But don't stress because we help you manage this in two big ways.
We'll give you as much notice as possible about forecast price spikes (with a notification on your phone, a text, or an email), so you can skip these brief higher priced periods by shifting your non-essential usage.
We also guarantee that you'll never pay more than the government's Default Market Offer (the government's reference price for energy) over a 12 month period.
So with Amber, you have all the benefits of buying power at cheaper wholesale prices, but we cap the maximum price over a year to protect you.
And if you have solar generating during a price spike, you could earn up to $15/kWh (the maximum price amount)!
Don't worry, we've got your back.
