Nectr is a relatively new nectr energy retailer established in 2019 as the retail arm of Hanwha Energy Australia. It currently offers electricity plans in NSW, QLD and the ACT and has a market offer on hold in VIC.
The retailer’s core product is a zero-carbon power plan that offsets all of its customers’ electricity usage with renewable generation from wind and solar power, which makes it one of the greenest energy options available in Australia. Customers can also choose a 100% carbon neutral plan that uses only renewable energy generated on-site.
Powering Up: Exploring the Benefits of Switching to Nectr Energy
Its mobile app allows customers to track their energy use, compare it to similarly-sized households and access customer support. It is available for both Apple and Android devices. Customers can even submit meter readings and track how much solar they’re generating.
A recent deal between Cumberland Council and Nectr has seen the city supply its aquatic centres, libraries and community facilities with green energy. It’s the first such agreement for an Australian council, and highlights how businesses can make a positive contribution to the local environment with this type of deal.
Nectr is a good fit for customers that want to set and forget their energy plan for a fixed term. Customers could save money by purchasing a smaller solar system or one without a battery and financing it through Nectr. They also offer great rates if your property is going to be sold soon, which can be helpful if you’re planning on moving house in the near future.
