Time has passed and I see Diamond Energy meanwhile as the best available option
1 to 2 years have passed since my entry (and additional comment to it - however, both entries seem to have disappeared with my new review here...).
Meanwhile I reckon that Diamond Energy is the best option available where I live (country NSW), since they lifted their feed-in-rebate to 12 cents (while a small portion of my feed-in-kW even attracts a 15 cents rebate each period.
I see reports on TV of people with horrendous power-bills. This is beyond my comprehension.
Those must be people without solar and without any idea how to use pow...
Cooperative effort, successful results.
We had to have someone remove and re-install our solar panels to permit the installation of a new roof. Cole and his team did a super efficient and professional job, and his price was very competitive. All of the workers were polite and hard working, and they were able to fit their schedule with the roofing company, so we did not lose much energy at all. We could not be more pleased with the work.
Prompt and knowledgeable service
I received a surprisingly large bill, staff member (Alex) assisted me to solve my problem and immediately offered me a payment plan.
Excellent Customer Service and Huge Savings and Greener Energy
Three months ago we switched electricity providers from AGL to Diamond Energy for both our home and business. We decided that we had a moral obligation to change to a greener electricity provider even if it was going to cost more. We were impressed with the great customer service and ease of switching but were a little worried about how much the bills were going to be. We have just received our first bills and they are considerably less than our previous power bills. We are thrilled and will be recommending Diamond Energy to all our friends.
absolutely excellent service
100% renewables at a competitive price, transparency, and an absolutely outstanding customer service... An exceptionally excellent Australian energy company. I will certainly keep recommending them.
good value, green and helpful cusomer service
Thanks Diamond Energy for providing green energy, to back up my solar PV and hot water systems. Your prices are comparable and fair, and today I had a great experience with Customer Service, being offered a 'tour" of the rather complex and detailed bill. It was made clear in a very calm, patient and helpful way, and all my questions were answered in a respectful and useful way. I will recommend Diamond Energy not only for your "green-ness" but also for your helpful and friendly staff.
Good service, renewable energy
The customer service is really responsive and we are glad to pay affordable rates for renewable energy with Diamond Energy.
Diamond deserves more than 5 stars.
A year ago, after a recommendation from the Whirlpool website, we changed to Diamond Energy. Immediately our bill was a lot less with our Solar credit a lot more. We like the way the bill is laid out and our credit is paid direct into our bank account every quarter. It's good to deal with an Australian based company who are pleasant to talk to and are efficient and understanding.
After issues with Energex QLD, regarding the removal of our Solar Bonus Feed In Tariff, Diamond Energy went in to bat for us. They were on the ball and chased up Ener...
Loving this service!
I have currently moved out of home for the first time- I chose Diamond Energy after a friend recommended because of the affordable prices, and excellent customer service and I couldn't agree more! Nothing but efficient and friendly customer service, I'm a very happy customer!
Great customer service
I like to ask LOTS of questions and be 100% sure before committing I interviewed 4 Solar installers before settling on a 12 kwh system from Green Energy Australia (ps ask for Randall) They recommended Diamond as cost competitive and a great local supplier. I did my research and was ready to hit up the electricity providers and after making several calls and have settled on Diamond primarily because they have great customer service. Also they are the wholesalers for the new SSC solar farm.
Phone service was great. Instantly connect with a...human, clear speaking and friendly, had answers for ALL my questions, and provided realistic feedback about options for battery. When I asked about price comparisons, They took a copy of 2 recent electricity bills and generated two clear reports showing savings compared to AGL. Then they added sweeteners for installation and ongoing higher feed in tariff. And have offered to absorb the cost of accelerated cut over meter read.. Email notifications from Diamond have been appropriate keeping me notified of progress. It seems I anticipate the welcome pack will arrive any minute.
Accountable, Professional and Friendly
We fitted Solar panels over 5 years ago and joined Diamond Energy.
The installation company were working in conjunction with Diamond Energy and both ensured a smooth change from our previous electricity carrier. Less than one month changeover, very happy.
We have not experienced any major problems, only storm blackouts. Any issues dealt with immediately by phone to Diamond Energy.
Diamond is only a general phone call away, immediate response, not the old press No. and select 6 options 4 times.
We have been very fortunate to have connected to Diamond Energy, My personal experience has been satisfying knowing we are receiving the best attention from the office. Thanks
Genuine and fastastic service
Nothing but helpful throughout the whole process, quick responses, genuine communication, try to help you out any way possible - very different from the major suppliers (in a good way)!
I live in a tiny 2 person household. It's not even a house, it's a trailer. We both work a lot and are barely home. I was shocked to receive an $800+ bill. We use gas for cooking and have mostly LED lights, no air conditioning so I'm very confused by this excessive bill. Never again. I'm shopping around to find a decent provider.
great service, fair pricing, highly recommend
I have been with Diamond for about 18 months and find their prices very competitive, no hidden pricing /dodgy sign ups, and they have been really helpful and given me really great advice about installing solar panels. Compared with other providers I have been with, I would highly recommend. A huge bonus is that they score very highly on the green electricity guide due to their commitment to renewables - this is very important to me.
Very happy with Diamond Energy
We switched to Diamond Energy last year and could not be happier with the product and the customer service. Our power bill decreased significantly, our feed-in tariff increased immediately and the customer service is personal and proactive. I strongly recommend a switch to Diamond Energy.
Questions & Answers
Should I only go with Diamond Energy if I have solar panels? I am moving out and will be renting so we won't have solar, will it still be a reasonable price?
I think they do a bill compare if you ask them. They did it for us. They're good even with no solar.
I'm looking at Diamond Energy, I'm in an apartment so trying to work out whether I need solar panels or not?
It would be tricky to get solar panels in an apartment but Diamond energy is sourced from renewables, so at least you know you're helping the planet!
Is it more expensive to have solar on private rentals than owning you own home?
I can only speculate, that as a tenant, after getting the owner's agreement to install panels, if indeed you are responsible for the electricity bill as most tenants in Australia are, you would earn as much credit for the electricity your panels generate as an owner would, but without the security of tenure an owner has, you will have the extra costs of uninstalling, taking the system with you and reinstalling on your next rental property...if you can find an owner who agrees to it.
We have solar panels, a 5kw system.
Diamond energy give us 11cents per kw put back into the grid.
But I think the main benefit is that with solar it uses the power generated for the home use first then any excess going back into the grid.
My bills have more than halved since installing solar.
Try using your heavy electricity usage between 9am and 2pm if possible, that is the maximum gain period for solar.
I must admit I have not heard of anyone taking the solar installation with them when they move.
The way new technology is going, there will be bigger and better all the time.
Hope that helps you.
If your bill is 800 plus you may benefit. Personally I would go halves with the owner and only if your bill is really high
