So far, so good

published

Transfer from Aurora Energy to 1st Energy. This covered both residential and solar power input to the grid. I had previously been a customer of Aurora Energy for around 45 years.

Great feed in price

published

I switched over from Auroa energy for better solar feed in price. The change over was seamless and fairly quick. Power supply has been very reliable without any issues to date. My only concern is that they only read the meter quarterly and only estimate the other months.

We already get monthly bills but they don’t read the meter every month only quarterly. They estimate the bill for the other times

Yes thanks Gilbert. Would you prefer a quarterly bill or an actual read monthly bill?

Thanks for personalised responses and assistance

The guy was fabulous .. went beyond what I expected which helped enormously. I have and will continue to recommend 1st energy. Not sure about the 30 words though .. seems a bit too bossy and unnecessary!! Otherwise fabulous!!

I changed from Aurora energy to you as you offer a better deal

published

Have not received closing bill from Aurora as yet. No issues with power supply - changed over due to discount. Still waiting for the complete change over. Would like when you can let me know the daily off peak and peak times. Have to thank Michael for his help and understanding made the decision easy.

Better than our previous provider

published

We now get a better rebate for our solar. With energy prices rising we need to save as much as possible. That’s why we switched to 1st Energy. A free app that shows our usage and solar production which helps us monitor our energy.

First Energy as new retailer. Online setup with support from Suzzanna - easy and only took a few minutes. Have not received closing bill from Aurora as yet. No issues with power supply - changed over due to discount.

1st Energy - Definitely Worth the Switch

published

Following the installation of solar panels, etc., we changed to 1st Energy. The switch was seamless and we have experienced only the occasional drop-out - certainly no more frequently than with the previous provider.

A great move to 1st energy as an an ancient!

published

1st energy from when I switched across, gives my household reasonable monthly accounts equivalent to my needs.I am powered with electric lighting - heat and/cooling and all appliances.With solar for my Hot water..)credit return assists in lowering my monthly account) 1st Energy is reliable in its provision of Power and each and every person who I have had cause to speak to is extremely helpful. This move over a year ago was the best ever!
