Nectr ran a competition in July providing new customers with the chance to Win FREE* Electricity for a Year by asking for their top energy saving tips. We received some insightful and well considered responses and would like to thank every Nectr customer who participated in this competition!
Who wouldn’t love a year of FREE* Energy?
Why is this competition important to us?
We know a lot of Aussies have found it tough over the past 18 months. During the recent lockdown, life changed for many, but energy bills didn’t. This competition was our way of alleviating some of the pressure by rewarding those new Nectr customers who participated, with a break from paying electricity for a year.
Now more than ever, households are spending more time at home with many seeing their energy usage increase. Here at Nectr, we are focused on helping all Australians become more energy efficient, accessing affordable renewable energy plans and investing back into the environment. For a limited time, all customers who sign up to our 100% carbon neutral or 100% GreenPower plans online, will have the chance to win* free electricity for a year.

After reviewing all creative responses on ‘how to save electricity’, we have chosen our top eligible entries. It is with great pleasure that we’d like to formally congratulate the winners for each state below:
