One word: Powershop.
No I do not work for them, I just really want all the people
getting ripped off by their power company to know that
there is an alternative. For some reason powershop is
not listed in the online comparison calculator.
I want to share my experience with this company, they are
fantastic and so exciting that they really deserve my writing
this opinion. If just one person signs up as result, I will
be stoked, and so will they.
Ok first this is a cut and paste of my powershop account what
I have paid, or will be paying, in power the last 6
months.The proof is in the pudding. Averages $81 per month,
and that's over the winter months with electric heating. Apr

We have a heatpump (sparingly used however), and are a two
adult, one child family. Powershop is easy to use (maybe a
little scary at first) and easy to change to. The funniest
thing of all, when we swapped over (automatically through the
website) Contact rang and offered us $250 to stay with then
as long as we signed a contract for, I think it was three
years, maybe two.
Why could't they just have saved me that money in the first
place? I have never been so excited about a company, or
posted comment on one in this fashion, but I cannot stand the
fact that Dunedin residents are being so clearly ripped off
by power companies, I want all to know there is a cheaper
alternative. There are no line charges, we
pay on;ly for the power we use, and the unit cost is
cheaper than what we were paying on Contact.
It's not like the prepaid cards - if you run out they
automatically purchase you the cheapest power available, not
cut off your power.
