Nectr Stand – {G28} Melbourne Home Show

Calling all homeowners, renovators, and eco-warriors alike: Human-sized bees will be buzzing around the Nectr stand (G28) at this year’s Melbourne Home Show (26 – 28 August) to help Aussies find affordable ways to ‘future-proof’ their energy consumption with cleaner, greener energy.

At this year’s show, Australian energy retailer Nectr will highlight ways in which households can use renewable forms of energy generation to save money, add value to their homes, and take positive action on climate change.

Research shows that Australian consumers want sustainable homes,[1]with two-thirds of home buyers preferring energy efficient homes when given a choice.[2] Interestingly, when selling a property, energy efficient homes generate greater buyer interest, sell quicker, and attract premium price.[3]

Nectr’s latest solar, and solar and battery energy bundles include competitive electricity rates, premium and performance-based hardware and interest-free monthly payment plans, with contract periods of three to five years (depending on the product).

Nectr Chief Marketing Officer, Karren Challoner-Miles, encourages those considering installing solar panels or a solar and battery energy bundle to visit the Nectr stand at the Melbourne Home Show to start their journey to energy independence.

“Recent spikes in energy prices have made many Australians question their household energy sources and costs. This has resulted in an unprecedented interest in how solar and battery bundles can not only save them money but also add value to their home,” said Karren.

“While installing solar panels is the first step to sustainable living, installing a household battery will provide even greater energy independence. This means drawing energy from your household battery instead of the grid during peak night-time periods, or being the only house on the block with the lights on during blackouts.”

Sustainable homes require less energy to heat and cool, enhance occupant comfort and are more resilient to climate and weather extremes,[4] making households with renewable forms of energy generation clear and immediate winners.

“Whether starting with solar panel installation or installing both solar and battery for less reliance on the grid, Nectr’s bundled plans can help homeowners at all stages of their energy independence journey. There are no upfront costs or interest fees, so the move to renewable forms of energy has never been more attractive or affordable,” said Karren.

At the Nectr stand this year, Melbourne Home Show visitors also have the chance to secure a discount of up to $1,200 off the cost of their new energy system if they request a quote during the show (26-28 August) and then proceed to installation.

The Nectr stand at the Melbourne Home Show will feature tips on saving energy at home, what being ‘carbon neutral’ really means and how households – and the planet – can benefit from cleaner, greener energy. Also featured at the stand will be Interactive solar calculator, where Show visitors simply input their home address, and the technology will display the potential energy savings achieved by adding solar plus see a view of how solar panels could be configured on their roof - before purchase.

Nectr is one of the first energy retailers to be awarded Canstar Blue’s Green Excellence Awards – Energy 2022; and is ranked among the top 10 greenest energy retailers in the country, according to Greenpeace’s Green Electricity Guide. Recently, Nectr was a finalist in Finder’s 2022 Customer Satisfaction Awards Energy 2021/2022 for Best Rated Electricity Provider in NSW and QLD.
