The best electricity retailer by a mile!!!
For a start someone answers the phone-a real and FRIENDLY person-and NOT through a chain of extra choices
Secondly-its someone in Camberwell,Melbourne AUSTRALIA and they have time to listen-and make decisions re offers etc
Thirdly the phone person is informed smart and capable of dealing with just about anything you may want to know.
Fourth the processes to set up accounts and other matters are quick and simple
Finally the follow up is first rate,detailed and fast. Alex was super efficient friendly and remembered previous calls and correspondence-VERY impressive
Have moved both my accounts to Diamond now.
A company that does what it says.
Have experienced excellent service and backup over the last 4years with all aspects of our account and with other saving offers being explained in a most unselfish manner, which has saved us plenty. Great information and plenty of time given on payment of direct debits. Diamond Energy so much better than anyone electric or solar electric. Thank you.
I am not a person who normally writes reviews, but in this case I think the Amber's service should be commended. Not only has she helped me but also provided a better deal for my relatives. She has been extremely responsive and a pleasure to deal. Thanks.
Very Very Happy
Great company to be with - finally a company that looks after their clients. I cannot say enough about their customer service - especially Amber who managed to save me hundreds of dollars on my electricity bill. It was also Amber that contacted me as she saw where I could make some savings. Would highly recommend this company.
I have been with diamond energy for 4 years and find all the staff very helpful especially Amber they make sure you are getting all the rebates that you are entitled to and nothing is too much trouble for them.J Morgan
Support has been one of the best I have had from any company and would highly recommend them as I have done to numerous friends
Excellcent Service Thank You Amber-Lou
Very satisfied with Customer Service & Communication for our Solar Panels Account.
Prices are Competitive, Satisfaction & Highly Recommend Diamond Energy. Customer Service is Important
I am having issues with a strangely high bill and a flat mate paying thier share in summary. Also problems with SA Power Networks not disconnecting the electricity when requested. Be glad you are not in SA rest of Australia.....
The customer service provided by the frontline operators and team leaders has been faultless. Infact they have gone out of thier way to assist in rectifying the situation.
Can't recommend them highly enough!
Excellent Customer Service!!!
They went above and beyond to fix an issue caused by another retailer who was trying to connect my account with them because one of their customers provided a wrong NMI number (mine).
Amber was great in keeping me posted by email at each step of the resolution.
I have been with Diamond Energy for 3 years and I regularly check the rates in the market, they are cheaper than the competitors.
Best company/experience ever!!!
I have been with diamond energy for about 15 months. I have had the best service and support anyone could ever ask for. They are great, easy to sign in and best follow up and they do go out of their way to help you and solve your problems.
Recently some error led to another company trying to take my account away from them. They sent me a very lovely and polite email to let me know and to tell me how much they appreciate my business and what they could do to get my business back.
I was shocked and sent a response that I have not signed wit...h anybody else. They got my email and Amber, who works for them, investigated all she could before giving me a ring to let me know what was going on and helping me through it. The problem was solved within 3 hours and I am back with them. Thank you, Amber, and thank you Diamond energy!!!! And yes, the fact that they are Aussie and green had a lot to do with me choosing them!!!!
Do your homework and compare their rates with others
Diamond is one of the power retailers recommended when installing solar panels and Reposit (or even Reposit without the solar panels). They are focusing on renewable power sources as a result and it is commendable that they are doing so. A large feed in tariff for "high demand events" (think "summer super hot days when everyone has air-conditioning on and the power system can't keep up") is offered so have the potential to be low cost over a year. However, these high demand events are all too rare, despite the noise in the press and the off ...peak rate is much higher than most competitors, with the minimum government feed in tariff offered for 99.99% of the year. Our experience, over the years was a difficult and disorganised connection, followed by disappointing high cost. They struggled to plan the connection, so came back to the house twice. We were initially set up with a controlled load tariff as well. Not sure why. It took Diamond four months to sort out the connection and tariff. More importantly, the cost is not competitive. As an example, our home would typically draw 4-5 kW of power from the grid (at off peak - not peak times and rates) and send 15-20 kW back to the grid (the excess generated by the solar panels after supplying the house and charging the battery) in a day, and we would owe them money. The issue comes from their very high off peak rate, which is currently about 25% higher than offered by most of the other, more widely known suppliers. Over a year, the impact is material. The less important negative point is the visibility of the chaos behind the scenes. The people helping you on the phone or email do their best but what they say is going to happen is rarely related to what then happens, in terms of time frames or work being done.
My bills have been ridiculously expensive!
I was shocked when I received a bill of $860 dollars (over three months) for a tiny one bed room apartment.
It just didn’t seem right. They said I used up to 71 kw in one day alone which confused me as I’m frugal with my power usage. So I cancelled my membership but received the last bill over two months which was over 500 dollars! I would not recommend this company because I haven’t changed my power usage habits and I’ve never received bills so large from other providers.
WORST Energy retailer - Confusing and misleading billing
Worst energy company ever, I received 7% discount upon signing up during March 2017 but guess what? They jacked up the price by 20% in a July and didn't even bother giving the mere 7% discount.
Gotta say Diamond energy is definitely the WORST energy retailer out there, so if you're thinking of signing up with Diamond energy, make sure you already are wearing 10 24 carat diamond rings, then you wouldn't even bother letting these bloody leaches take your money.
Love this company!
I've had nothing but great experiences with Diamond Energy - have been through a few relocation, all without a hitch and with the best customer service each time. And of course the best part is knowing that they are an ethical company that isn't just jumping on the "green" energy bandwagon but are actually committed to renewable energy.
Diamond Energy Saves Me More Money Again
Just got off the phone to Diamond Energy they couldn't do enough for me they have always been very helpful been with them now 6years I'm on the 0.60c Feed in Tarrif and they give me a extra 0.08c so 0.68c well as of 1/7 that now goes up too 0.72c Pkwh and have given me a total of 10% Discount for Pay on time and Direct Debit so yes a very happy customer
Thanks Again Diamond Energy
Everyone is so great and easy to talk to. I've never had issues so I've never had to call and winge. But when I called to disconnect (due to no gas) they answered quickly and the lady I spoke to, Jess, was lovely and helpful. Didn't make me feel bad at all.
Will return when I move
Have been with Diamond Energy for approximately 3 years, it was highly recommended - green friendly, good customer service. Not a problem until we moved from our property I called first time in December, and advising the we are moving and the property is going to be unoccupied. The customer rep advice was to keep electricity until new owner moved in. Mid of January we payed $178.60 not being in property. I have to add that we do have sole panels 2.5 KW . In the end of February I again called advising that the new owners might move in soon ask...ing for advice what now, again I called 16 of March informing that new people are residing in our property I was advice do nothing as the new people will open their account. Few days ago I received another bill from Diamond this time $85,60. I called again a young lady told me there are no record of my calls or any request and I have to pay to disconnect the power. My patients disappeared ... I asked for the supervisor, total shock young man is telling me the same - there are no records of any conversation or request for disconnection. I got upset that he calls me a liar, and keep explaining and asking what I want totally humiliated I give -up told I pay... thank you,, Then I was offered a credit to have account in our new property with Diamond Energy if I use services .. I decline the offer .
Great for solar panel owners, good buy back rate
Have found them excellent and cost effective. Very approachable on the phone and spend time to explain. Clear and simple documentation and processing. Good communicators.
delivers as promised
Having solar panels and getting the credit is a good thing. After being with origin for years and seeing the fake discounts and price hikes I decided to jump ship and go with diamond. They are good, genuine and also mainly humans. In all this time I have had one problem which got sorted eventually. For all those people who have had issues and complaints please bare in mind these are humans and they do make mistakes, which can be resolved if you treat them like humans and not your slaves who bend over to your demand. Threating or mistreating them will only make things worse as the contract will be enforced even harder.
Very satisfied with Diamond energy.
I've been with Diamond Energy in VIC since 2011 when I had PV installed. I received excellent advice from customer support when choosing a retailer and decided to change to Diamond Energy before the PV system was installed. A very smooth commissioning of system followed, taking less than a week from installation. Since then I've had 5 years up to the present with no technical or billing problems using direct debit/auto-deposit of FIT income from/to my bank. I have excellent access to data showing power usage from grid and power feed-in to gr...id, both graphical and downloadable data. My neighbour had a system installed 6 weeks before me; I was connected and on-line nearly 3 months before him. (He did not go with Diamond Energy as his power retailer.) Based on my happy experience I have encouraged a family member in QLD who is having a PV system installed to go with Diamond Energy. Given some of the less complimentary reviews you can rest assured you'll see a review from him if his experience is in any way negative. As of right now it's ten out of 10, Diamond Energy!
Diamond Energy is a customer service orientated retailer
We have been a customer with DE for 5 years, they were very helpful after we had a solar system installed and getting us signed up.
During the 5 years we have had problems with the supplier (SPAusnet) , Diamond Energy sorted these out (incorrect meter readings, estimated readings). These problems were not caused by DE, yet they still resolved them with the supplier. There are not too many companies in any field were you can ring and actually talk to a human, DE is one, their customer service is excellent and i have recommended them to many friends and family.
Worst service we have ever experienced
We signed up for 100% renewable with direct debit. Assumed we were paying quarterly as agreed. 5 months after cancellation because we moved, we get a final notice for entire amount... they hadn't done a single reading in 9 months and we had never received an invoice. No responses to emails and no explanation for constant errors on their part. Avoid this company!
Diamond energy rip-offs
I have solar. Over two and a half years the feed-in rate has dropped from 22c/kWh to 8c/kWh and the daily supply charge has gone up from 50.219 cents a day to 131.44 cents a day, that is an increase of over 150%. Now you must produce more than 16 kWh daily just to cover diamond energy's supply charge. Previously 3 kWh would cover the daily supply charge. How can they justify this?
Terrible......would give a minus if I could!
My first mistake was having solar installed under a contract that stipulated that Diamond needed to be my provider. With many phones it took them over nine months and numerous phones calls from me to receive a nasty final notice of $1800 or they will cut my power. In the ensuing phone calls not once was I apologised to or did the company admit any fault.
Now to my current situation. We sold the property and the new owners took over the he contract. I rang the company to cancel the direct debit as I felt that the above mentioned amount shoul...d have been paid off. The person on the phone confirmed I was actually in credit but the refund couldn't be finalised until the next bill was issued. Thinking this was strange I let it slide until I had something from them. This took a further three weeks to arrive and to my horror they never changed to the new owner and have charged me for their bill! Now it's been numerous phone calls and I've been given the complete run around and I still don't have my refund for the credit or the money I have paid towards the new owners bill. Does it seem a coincidence that half the names that are appearing on the 5 star rating are the same names of the people who have been giving me the run around on the phone?
Very friendly service
I applied to Diamond for a switch from AGL. They were honest, friendly and efficient. I am definitely not looking back!
