You’re about to experience a greener, cheaper and fairer way to buy power. Wholesale prices, without the retail mark-up.
There’s just one thing you’ll need to do to get the most out of Amber: reduce your energy usage in the handful of hours each year when the wholesale price of energy can spike up to $3 - $19/kWh, due to extra high energy demand.
But don't worry, we've got your back in two big ways.
1) We’ll alert you in the Amber app whenever the wholesale price is much higher than usual, so you can reduce your usage (think: not using your washing machine or electric stove top).
2) We guarantee that you'll never pay more than the government reference price for power on average over the course of a year, or we'll refund the difference.
Bottom line: switching off a few power-hungry appliances during price spikes is the single most effective thing you can do to lower your energy bills AND help the planet.
If you have a SmartShift™ device, we'll automatically turn your appliance off during these times.
