What makes Energy Locals different?

Signing up to Energy Locals to have your electricity connected is a different experience from the one you are probably used to. They believe that the traditional energy model – where a retailer buys wholesale energy and marks it up to sell to customers – isn’t the best way.

Instead, they have developed a membership system, where you sign up for an annual membership in return for access to cheap, wholesale electricity prices.

In their tradition of doing things differently, they also promote innovation in renewable energy to provide clean electricity to customers.

  • Solar Battery Storage

Energy Locals supports Tesla and Sonnen so customers can benefit from cheaper, cleaner, stable energy from their rooftop solar power system.

  • Solar Power

Energy Locals are experts at getting solar installed fast! They can help solar installers get digital smart metres installed, as well as provide customers with a great solar feed-in tariff (FiT).

  • Peer-to-Peer Power

Along with Enosi, an Australian tech start-up, Energy Locals is trialling ways to provide peer-to-peer solar energy, meaning you can benefit from solar power even if you don’t have the right roof or budget.

  • Sugar Cane Power

The creative minds at Energy Locals are always on the lookout for ways to increase energy efficiency and reduce waste. They buy energy in NSW from a sugar cane powered power plant, which uses dried-out sugar cane to generate enough electricity for around 60,000 homes!

Can I get Energy Locals plans at my new home?

You can connect home and business electricity in deregulated energy markets in Australia, including Victoria, New South Wales, South-East Queensland, South Australia, the ACT and Tasmania.
