Alinta Energy Reviews

Below we have compiled a list of pros and cons for Alinta energy to help you make a clearer decision.

Alinta Energy Review: Pros

  • Available in NSW, Vic, Qld, SA, and WA
  • Alinta Energy Rewards available in all retail states
  • Standard Alinta solar feed-in tariff available
  • No lock-in contract & $0 exit fees

Alinta Energy Review: Cons

  • Not available in ACT or Tas
  • Poor customer service reviews
  • Foreign Owned
  • No solar energy electricity plan
  • Alinta Rewards only for activies and entertainment

We also took a look at Alinta Energy reviews from real customers around the web and have compiled a summary here.

Customer reviews of Alinta Energy are mixed.

Alinta Energy reviews on Product Review show that customers give the company 1.8 out of 5 stars. On TrustPilot, reviews were nearly identical coming in at 1.9 out of 5 stars.

You don't need to be an expert to see that these customer reviews are quite low. In fact, nearly 92% of the Alinta Energy reviews on TrustPilot were for 1 star.

So, what causes people to give the company such low ratings?

Although some Alinta customers are happy with their service and cite their bills as being significantly cheaper, many other customers mention receiving higher bills once they switched and having trouble with the Alinta customer service team.

It's important to note that a number of the reviews are customers warning future customers to steer clear.

Therefore, take these reviews with a grain of salt as disgruntled customers are more likely to leave a review than happy customers.

Who Owns Alinta Energy?

Alinta Energy is owned by a Hong Kong investment firm called Chow Tai Fook Capital Limited.

However, Alinta Energy has its head offices in Sydney and generates and sells energy in both Australia and New Zealand.

Alinta was originally under the State Energy Commission of Western Australia until 1995 when it was dissolved into its separate gas and electricity groups, leading to the creation of Alinta Gas. Alinta Gas then changed its name to Alinta Limited before settling on its current name, Alinta Energy.

In 2017, Alinta Energy was acquired by Chow Tai Fook Enterprises and remains a subsidiary up until today.
