What is On by EnergyAustralia?

On by EnergyAustralia is a new, innovative, way for residential energy consumers to purchase and manage their electricity. Currently only available in New South Wales, On by EnergyAustralia is bringing the latest and most innovative methods of retail energy to the Australian National Electricity Market while backed by the security and stability of EnergyAustralia.

Currently, On by EnergyAustralia is trialling different electricity plans and offers, to see what works best for Australian energy customers. These include pay-as-you-go and subscription energy plans, and free electricity on certain days of the week. On by EnergyAustralia has previously trailed solar energy plans in both NSW and Queensland.

On by EnergyAustralia: Electricity plans and rates

On by EnergyAustralia is constantly trialling new plans, to see what consumers are interested in. Currently, they have three plans available: Easy Plan and Easy Plan Plus, and Free Saturdays plan, all of which are only available to residents of New South Wales.

Ultra Solar and Solar Plan Plus? On by EnergyAustralia was trialling their solar energy plans, Solar Plan Plus and Ultra Solar Plan, to customers in NSW and QLD respectively. Currently, trial periods for both plans are now closed.

Easy Plan and Easy Plan Plus with On by EnergyAustralia

The Easy Plan, and Easy Plan Plus, is currently being trialled with On by EnergyAustralia for customers in New South Wales. These plans are said to be inspired by phone and internet plans, where customers pay a flat monthly fee rather than be charged by kWh as most traditional electricity plans are done.

 Easy Plan: Choose the set amount of electricity you want to use per month, and rollover any unused electricity to the next month. If you use more than the included energy, you can automatically top it up.

 Easy Plan Plus: Enter your usage details automatically, and choose the best plan for you to avoid bill shock based on your usage habits.
