We give you the technology to take back the power (from your retailer). The transparency to manage it. And the power to make more renewable energy a reality.
We’re building a smart energy revolution that’s both cheaper and greener.
Buy directly from the wholesale market
All energy retailers buy their electricity from the wholesale electricity market, where prices are set every 30 minutes by the government’s Australian Energy Market Operator.
With Amber you get direct access to these same wholesale prices.
It's a cheaper way to buy power. And if you have solar to export, we’ll pay you the real-time wholesale price for it too.
It’s as good as energy pricing gets.
How you can save hundreds while supporting renewables
When there is lots of wind and solar power being produced, wholesale prices are typically low. By shifting some of your energy usage to times when cheaper, renewable energy is available, you can save hundreds. In doing so, you are also building demand for more renewable energy projects to be built. It's cheaper and greener energy.
The ultimate win/win.
Wholesale prices are the smartest way to buy electricity and the fastest way for Australia to reach 100% renewables.
We are developing new technology and working with partners to optimize smart devices like household batteries, electric vehicle chargers, hot water systems and pool pumps, so you can save even more without lifting a finger.
Frequently asked questions
What is included in wholesale electricity prices?
We pass through wholesale electricity prices directly at the cost to us. This includes wholesale energy costs, network charges (per kWh and per day), metering costs, environmental costs and carbon offset costs.
Does it cost anything to switch to Amber?
Nope - there are no upfront costs when switching to Amber. We’ll even install a smart meter for you (if you don’t already have one).
We also don’t have any lock-in contracts or exit fees, so you're free to leave at any stage (but we're pretty sure you're going to like us).
What happens if the wholesale price spikes?
We guarantee you will never pay more than the Government's Default Market Offer (the new reference price offered by traditional retailers) over a 12 month period.
With Amber, you have all the benefits of buying power at cheaper wholesale prices, but we cap the maximum price you pay at this reference price so you are protected from any increases in the wholesale price.
Amber passes through wholesale electricity prices directly at the cost to us, this includes: wholesale energy costs, hedging costs, network charges (per kWh and per day), metering costs, environmental costs and carbon offset costs.
