You’re about to experience a greener, cheaper and fairer way to buy power. Wholesale prices, without the retail markup.
To get the most out of Amber, there’s just one thing you’ll need to do: reduce your usage as much as possible in the handful of hours each summer when the wholesale price of energy can spike up to $3 - $19/kWh as the grid struggles to meet demand.
Don't worry, we've got your back in two big ways.
1) We’ll alert you whenever the wholesale price is much higher than usual, so you can reduce your usage.
2) We guarantee that you'll never pay more than the government reference price for power on average over the course of a year, or we'll refund the difference.
Switching off power-hungry appliances during price spikes is the single most effective thing you can do to lower your energy bills AND help the planet.
If you have a SmartShift™ device, we'll automatically turn your appliance off during these times.
