Red Energy Rates for Electricity and Gas Plans

Red Energy is one of the better known energy providers in Australia, retailing gas and electricity to over one million customers alongside its sister company, Lumo Energy. Both Red Energy and Lumo Energy are owned and backed by Snowy Hydro, one of the largest energy generators in the country. If you’re interested in switching to Red Energy, you might be curious how their electricity and gas rates compare to other companies.

How do Red Energy rates work?

Unlike other energy providers in Australia, who offer different rates and discounts depending on the plan you choose, Red Energy does things a little differently. No matter what plan you choose with Red Energy, you will get the same usage and supply charges for your energy. Instead, Red Energy offers different credits, rewards points, and other incentives depending on the plan you choose. Whether you want a simple plan, additional Qantas points, or you’re an electric vehicle user and want free weekend electricity, Red Energy offers incentives for everyone.
