Price spikes happen fewer than 9 hours each year on average
For a handful of hours each year, wholesale prices can climb above $3/kWh, rising to a peak of $19/kWh or $21/kWh in South Australia.
But don't stress because we help you manage this in two big ways.
We'll give you as much notice as possible about forecast price spikes (with a notification on your phone, a text, or an email), so you can skip these brief higher priced periods by shifting your non-essential usage.
We also guarantee that you'll never pay more than the government's Default Market Offer (the government's reference price for energy) over a 12 month period, no matter what happens with prices.
So with Amber, you have all the benefits of buying power at cheaper wholesale prices, but with a cap on the maximum price you'll pay over a year to protect you - just in case.
And if you have solar generating during a price spike, you could earn up to $15/kWh!
Don't worry, we've got your back.
