We’re different from other power companies
We’re a power company with a shop. We also like to empower our customers to manage their power their way by providing freedom, flexibility and insights to help them manage their power bills and save money in the process.
Don’t just take our word for it
Our customers like being in control of how much power they’re using and what it’s costing them.
“If you want to understand what’s happening with your power consumption and you want to have a bit of control over what you spend and when you spend it, then Powershop is probably a good choice” - Jay Anderson
“I like the ease of use with the Powershop app. And the transparency, how much you are using, so you know how much you’ve paid for. It’s just nice to lock that in and you can monitor it all and don’t worry about it.” - Ken & Laura Peryman
“I like having the app and not actually having to intermingle with people or try and phone companies. I can do everything I want off the app.” - Bronwen Bleakley
We’ve got answers, lots of them! All ready and searchable in our Help section. But if you get stuck, our friendly Christchurch team are here to help via Live chat.
Will I be locked into a fixed-term contract?
We can’t predict the future, so we won’t lock you into a fixed-term contract. You really can check out any time, and you can leave without penalty. We make it easy to join us, and easy to leave us if you need to.
How does the shopping for power work?
Once you’re a Powershop customer you’ll have access to the Shop. Within the Shop you can buy units of power called Powerpacks. They come in a range of price points and are almost always sold at a discount Standard Rate helping you to get great value for money for the power you use.
Buying power also helps you budget as you buy power as you use it or in advance so there’s no shock at the end of the month when you get your bill.
How do I buy power? Is there a monthly bill?
With Powershop you can buy power as you use it instead of paying for your electricity at the end of the month when you get a bill. This means that there is no monthly bill to pay if you have purchased enough power through the Shop to cover your usage for that billing cycle.
You can even buy power up to six months in advance to help you budget and save even more!
