Momentum Energy: Offers, Contact Information, Reviews

Momentum Energy is a small energy provider serving Victoria, New South Wales, and South Australia, which prides itself in its green energy initiatives and simple plans without confusing discounts. Read more about Momentum Energy, and all its offers, below, to find out which Australian energy provider is best for you. 

Overview of Momentum Energy

Momentum Energy was first started in 2002 in Melbourne. Between 2008 and 2009, Hydro Tasmania, one of Australia's biggest renewable energy retailers, purchased Momentum Energy. In 2012, Momentum Energy expanded their services to include New South Wales and South Australia. Now, Momentum offers electricity to customers in Victoria, New South Wales, and South Australia, as well as natural gas in Victoria. 

Momentum Energy Gas and Electricity Offers

Momentum Energy offers customers in Victoria the choice between three electricity plans and one natural gas plan, and customers in New South Wales and South Australia one electricity plan. All plans come with no exit fees, no credit card fees, and for customers in New South Wales and Victoria, a $50 online signup bonus, all with an open benefit period.

Momentum Energy Electricity Offers in Victoria

Momentum Energy offers three electricity plans for customers in Victoria: SmilePower Flexi; Move Mate; and for customers with solar power, Solar Step-Up.

 SmilePower comes at the same rate as the Victorian Default Offer, but Momentum Energy offers a $50 welcome bonus when you sign up online, no exit fees, and no credit card fees. SmilePower also supports Hydro Tasmania, which is Australia’s largest renewable energy generator.

 Momentum Energy has an electricity plan geared towards renters or people who plan on moving frequently. With Momentum Energy Move Mate, the average bill is a bit more expensive but waives their moving fee, and offers next-business-day connection. Like all other Momentum Energy plans, Move Mate comes with an open benefit period, and doesn’t have any credit card or exit fees.

 Customers with solar panels can opt for Momentum Energy’s Solar Step-Up plan. With Solar Step-Up, Momentum Energy gives customers a higher feed-in-tariff of 13.5c/kWh, rather than the standard Victorian rate of 12c/kWh. In addition to the higher feed-in-tariff, Momentum Energy’s Solar Step-Up plan comes with their usual no exit or credit card fees, and an open benefit period, as well as a $50 online sign-up bonus.

Momentum Energy Electricity Offers in New South Wales and South Australia

Momentum Energy customers in New South Wales and South Australia are able to sign-up for SmilePower Flexi which helps contribute to Hydro Tasmania, the largest renewable energy generator in Australia. Momentum Energy prides itself in no confusing discount options, as well as no exit or credit card fees, with an open benefit period. Customers in New South Wales are also eligible for a $50 welcome bonus when they sign up online.

Gas Offers from Momentum Energy

Momentum Energy offers natural gas services to customers in Victoria. Customers can choose between two plans: Gas and Gas Move Mate.

 Momentum Energy’s Gas plan comes with competitive rates and a $50 welcome bonus, as well as no exit or credit cards fees, all with the added convenience of having both electricity and gas come from one provider.

 Gas Move Mate by Momentum Energy is a new service offered by Momentum Energy. It comes with all the same benefits as Momentum Energy’s natural gas plan, and at the moment does not appear to have the same waived moving fee offered with Move Mate Electricity, but this is liable to change in the future.
