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!
