Very happy to be paying monthly, makes budgeting easier on a low income
No drop outs, great pricing and staff are helpful and friendly.
Making payment is easy. So happy with my electric bill and less stressed. I highly recommend 1st energy to others
I signed up with 1st Energy after being with my previous provider long term with good discounts. They were unable to match 1st Energy's prices. At the end of one year I will be well in front
Great energy provider
I am with 1st Energy for both gas and electricity. I am very pleased as I am saving money on both. The customer service team are great and very helpful.
Made the switch from Aurora energy who were charging for there Aurora+,i get the same service from 1st Energy and not charged.
Plus getting extra for feed in on solar so very happy.
No issues at all
I live in Tasmania and we only have one choice of power company that is government owned and that is Aurora energy. 1st energy is the first company to be allowed to operate in the state as competition to Aurora.
I had no trouble switching over, it was really easy and 1st energy organised at all.
My power bills seem to be much cheaper even though the tariffs are identical to Aurora.
Very happy with the company, the service and the app that links to my smart meters without charging me a fee (unlike Aurora).
Electricity no difficulties in transferring from another biller.
Significant reduction in monthly bill. No power dropouts supply has been faultless.
Change over took about a month as I had to complete cycle with other supplier.
Great electricity experience
I've used 1st Energy for several years now for my electricity and have never had any complaints. I love the pay on time discount. Monthly bills make it so much more convenient to keep on top of it and it's not so overwhelming to receive my bill.
Great service. Glad I swapped.
I changed to 1st Energy for my Gas and Electricity. The comparison carried out was clear, concise and logical. I did not experience any issues with the transition, in fact it was seamless.
My energy costs have been lower and therefore more affordable for me. It is much easier to track how much I am spending with the clarity of the bills provided. Thank you.
Extremely please with Ist energy
No complaints from us, very pleased. Original representative contact was pleasant with all aspects of change over details explained. Web site access simple and easy to view all details of billing.
Very cheap and very good seevice.
1st energy electricity. The set-up process was very easy as we do nothing the company had set-up itself for us. It is more reliable than others that we have used. We don’t face any dropout while using.
The reviewer stated that an incentive was offered for this review
Good service, fair pricing.
Solar feed in rate is better than the opposition.
No power drop outs and monthly bills.
Can't get any easier to deal with.
Hoping to stay with them long term.
Best option in Tas
Monthly bills are great, easy to understand and all pay options. Not receiving paper bills is the best bit. Solar feed in rate is higher first 12 months. Some good sign up options.
Good service, well done.
I had gas and electricity installed. The set up was easy and seamless. The set up was well explained and I was given the chance to to pick my billing requirements, which is important when of the older generation. I cant remember the power dropping out once, which is so good. Also, the people from the help desk have been so well mannered and patient with me when I had an enquiry, Thanks for your help guys.
Pricing is fair and just.
Never had any outages whilst under 1st Energy Electricity and their pricing is fair which is especially good for us older folk. When all pricing seems to be going up, why, their pricing has stayed fair.
I changed my electricity over to 1st energy. I have had no problems with the service and the people at the call center have been very helpful with any inquires.
Questions & Answers
Who owns 1st energy , ie to whom are dividends or profits sent to. I have been told there is a link to Indian business concerns, is this correct??
Hi irc, no that is not correct. 1st Energy was started by 4 individuals - 2 who are Melbourne born and bread and the other 2 who are New Zealand born and bread. In 2016, 1st Energy sold a small share of the business to ERM Power who are in Brisbane. If you would like any further clarification, please let me know. Many thanks Sarah
Thankyou for your prompt reply, it is most reassuring as otherwise we were very happy with your service
That's great to hear. We do hear a lot of stories about us being connected to China and all over the place but nope, all our staff are based in Australia. I'm not sure where all these stories originate from but I'm glad you asked and gave us the chance to set the record straight on this occasion.
