What price will I pay with Flick?
Your price with Flick is made up of a number of components, all passed through at their wholesale rate, with no mark up!
The cost of generation is dictated by the wholesale market price of power. This market is how generators sell their energy to retailers, who then sell the energy onto customers like you. With Flick, you cut out the middle man and buy your energy straight from the source. You’re buying on the wholesale market, just like the big retailers are. The New Zealand Electricity Market (NZEM) is regulated by the Electricity Authority (EA). Read more about generation.
Your transmission/distribution costs depend on your meter set up and where you live. You can find the pricing schedule for your area here.
And you'll always know exactly what we make on your bill. Your Flick Fee is separate and transparent and covers the costs of us looking after you as your retailer.
