Nectr Wins Canstar Blue's 2022 QLD Outstanding Value Award (QLD)

Nectr’s energy plans recognised with Canstar Blue’s Outstanding Value Award for QLD

For south-east Queensland families looking for ways to save on everyday expenses, Australian energy retailer Nectr has emerged as the clear winner in providing affordable, value-for-money energy plans for homeowners.

Nectr has received Canstar Blue's 2022 Outstanding Value Award for QLD based on the continued performance of the retailer’s electricity plans in the market against competitors.

Andrew Butler, Managing Director of Nectr says that being recognised for outstanding value energy plans is a testament to Nectr’s commitment to clean up energy to make it better for everyone.

“At Nectr, our customers are our number one priority. We're very proud to be recognised by Canstar Blue as offering the most outstanding value for our Queensland customers.

“From the very beginning, we’ve been committed to offering greener, cleaner, and affordable energy solutions for customers to benefit their household budgets and the environment. We’re thrilled to be recognised by Canstar Blue for outstanding value in Queensland in such a competitive space,” said Mr Butler.

Tara Donnelly, Canstar Blue's Utilities Editor says that Canstar Blue's Outstanding Value Award for Electricity Plans considers a retailer's cumulative performance across single rate and controlled load plans over a 3-month historical consideration, for each distribution network within the state.

“Nectr has consistently outperformed its south-east Queensland competitors on price, offering the cheapest annual electricity costs for all of the dates in our observation period. But Nectr also scored well above average in terms of the features it offered customers - the standout being its environmentally conscious options of either 100% carbon neutral energy for no extra cost or 100% GreenPower included as part of its GreenPower plan,” said Ms Donnelley.

Nectr’s Canstar Blue Outstanding Value QLD Award win adds to the retailer's green and affordability accolades, having also achieved Canstar Blue’s Green Excellence Awards 2022, top 10 status in Greenpeace Australia’s 2022 Green Electricity Guide, and multiple Mozo Experts Choice Awards for cheapest electricity plans across QLD, NSW and ACT.

“Our energy offerings are built to offer more environmentally friendly and affordable energy plans for Australians, that also suit their lifestyle and energy consumption habits,” said Karren Challoner-Miles, Nectr’s Chief Marketing Officer.

“We’ve seen an increasing number of customers taking a real interest in Nectr’s energy offers and making the switch to save money,” said Ms. Challoner-Miles. “If you’re interested in taking positive action on climate change, and are looking for greener, more affordable energy options, then take a look at what we have to offer.” For more information about Nectr visit
