What’s on offer from Flick Electric?
From starting out breaking ground by offering wholesale prices directly to New Zealanders, Flick now offers a range of power plans and tools to suit all lifestyles.
Flick’s pricing plans and tools are designed to give you power over your power – whatever that looks like for you.
Pay a simple, fixed rate all day and night on their Flat plan, or shift your power usage to cheaper, off-peak times and save during the day, at night and on the weekend on their Off Peak plan.
Flick currently has one power plans – Fixie – as well as a suite of tools.
Fixie is for those who want certainty over their bills. With Fixie you can set and forget, with a steady, fixed generation price for six months at a time.
- Bill transparency gives you the full breakdown of your total power bill
- If you’re in a network area with peak/off-peak available, you are able to take advantage of cheaper network prices
Volt provides customers with predictable billing. You pay a regular amount to Flick each week to build up a stash of funds from which your power bills are deducted. This helps smooth out your bills year-round and means you’re not slugged with a massive bill at the end of a billing period.
Use Flick’s app to monitor prices, manage your usage, and keep an eye on the carbon emissions generated from your household’s electricity use. And if you’re a grid-tied solar user, Flick’s on your side, too – sell your solar back to the grid through their Home Generation scheme.
