Powershop Review - Is Powershop Good?

Powershop reviews are a mixed bag, with ProductReview Powershop customers giving the energy provider 3.1 out of 5 stars.

While this isn’t the worst rating for an energy company, as customers are more likely to leave negative reviews than positive ones, there are a few things customers consistently mention in their Powershop reviews.

Customers mention as reasons they leave a positive Powershop review:

  • Positive experiences contacting Powershop customer service when dealing with an issue
  • Prices are reasonable, particularly for 100% carbon-neutral energy, but still isn't the cheapest energy provider

Says ProductReview user katiemcshop, of Sydney NSW in her 4-star Powershop review:

I had an issue with my bill as the person reading the meter - who is not from Powershop - had read it wrong. It took a bit of back and forth due to their complicated billing procedures, but Powershop eventually resolved the issue in my favour. It’s always good to know that if there is an issue, that the organisation has processes in place to resolve them - which they did.

 

However, there are a number of reasons consistently mentioned as to why customers leave a negative Powershop review:

  • The most recent negative customer Powershop reviews mention that Powershop was bought out by major fossil fuel company, Shell
  • Powershop customers consistently mention billing problems with Powershop
  • Long-term customers don’t like how Powershop changed its Powerpack model and feel they lost autonomy in choosing how they spend their energy

Jim, of South East Queensland, sums it up in their 1-star Powershop review:

When I signed up I thought the platform was interesting, with prepaid deals and stuff, bit of energy use data. Was not the cheapest but it was carbon offset and kinda cool.
One day the little prepaid deals stopped coming. I wondered what happened.
Then I learned through the news that Powershop had been quietly bought out by the evil Royal Dutch Shell. I am not going to pay for a company like that to greenwash their crimes.

 

While these reviews are only a small part of all Powershop customer satisfaction, and you should always do your own research when comparing and switching energy providers, it does allow us to look at some of the reasons why Powershop may or may not be a good energy provider.

Powershop Review: Pros

  • 100% carbon-neutral energy at no extra cost.
  • Expanding their energy offers to include Powershop gas in NSW
  • Customers cite helpful customer service.

Powershop Review: Cons

  • Recently purchased by fossil-fuel giant, Shell
  • Limited number of offers available
  • Customers cite frequent billing problems

Ultimately, it’s up to you to decide if Powershop is a good energy provider for you. For the environmentally-conscious customer, the recent acquisition by Shell might be a reason for concern. However, Powershop still offers 100% carbon-neutral energy and is continuing to expand its offers to more Australians. If you’re still not sure if Powershop is the right company for you, comparison services like Selectra can help you.

Powershop Australia FAQ

Who is Powershop Australia Owned By?

Since Shell has purchased Powershop, the energy provider’s Green Electricity Rating has decreased, despite promises to continue to contract renewable energy from Meridian.

What is the Greenest Energy Company in Australia?

Since being purchased by fossil-fuel giant, Shell, Powershop’s Green Electricity Rating has slipped to 10th greenest energy provider in Australia. In the most recent green electricity report, Enova Energy is the greenest energy company in Australia.
