Nectr brings affordable 100% carbon neutral energy plans to Victoria
For millions of Victorians, 2023 has begun with an average $300 increase to their power bills thanks to price hikes by some of Australia’s biggest energy players. As Australian energy retailer Nectr today introduces cleaner, more affordable energy plans for Victorian households, there has never been a more compelling reason for residents to shift providers.
Nectr is one of Australia’s energy success stories. Since establishing itself as a player in Australia’s energy market in 2019, Nectr has amassed a significant customer base that values affordable electricity plans that also contribute towards a greener future
Andrew Butler, Managing Director at Nectr says that it is the responsibility of energy providers to be transparent with Australians, and ‘go into battle’ for their customers to ensure they are receiving the best deals on the market.
“Nectr has always been about holding the ‘big players’ to account. We came into the Australian market with a vision to clean up energy to make it better for everyone. Today, as we include Victoria into our distribution network for electricity-only plans (Nectr released their Solar and battery bundles to all Victorians in December 2022), we’re excited to offer Victorian households an energy alternative that can make a difference to their hip pocket and the future of the country.
“Victorians have the chance to look for a better energy deal than what they’re currently on, and some may even be eligible for a rebate if they do so. It’s also about looking long term and choosing an energy plan that suits your lifestyle and is underpinned by a commitment to positive action for the future,” Mr Butler said.
Research suggests that Victorians are dissatisfied with their electricity provider, and in June last year around 87,000 Victorians took control and switched providers. Victorian residents are actively sourcing better energy deals with research revealing nearly one in five are switching energy providers.
In 2022, Nectr’s was recognised for having the cheapest electricity plans in NSW, ACT and QLD, best value GreenPower plan in NSW, the cheapest GreenPower plan in QLD, and outstanding value electricity plans in QLD. Nectr also achieved finalist status for best-rated electricity brands in NSW and QLD.
The retailer is listed in the top 10 of Greenpeace Australia’s 2022 Green Electricity Guide and secured Canstar Blue’s Green Excellence Awards 2022.
From 23 February 2023, Victorian residents can access Nectr’s cleaner, energy plans, including:
- Nectr 100% Clean – A 100% carbon-neutral electricity plan with fixed energy rates for 12 months that makes a positive impact on the environment.
With an Australian-based customer care team, monthly billing, no move-in or exit fees, competitive rates, and plans underpinned by investment in wind, solar and hydro projects, Nectr offers Victorian residents the opportunity to take charge of their energy bills and reduce their impact on the environment.
For Victorian homeowners looking to future-proof themselves against future energy price rises, Nectr also offers solar, and solar and battery bundles. With no up-front costs, monthly interest-free instalments, fixed electricity rates for the life of the contract, and top-rated solar systems, Nectr is proving itself to be one of Australia’s leading solar and battery retailers.
