MOMENTUM New South Wales
If you're searching the market for electricity for your home in NSW, Momentum Energy has one simple offer available, the SmilePower Flexi. There are no confusing discounts in play, with the company instead focussing on bringing clarity to the rates and providing customers with dollar estimates of what their bill will be with Momentum Energy. Momentum Energy seems to prefer the path of transparency over what they call “naked” rates. The benefit period for the SmilePower Flexi is open, meaning there are no lock-in obligations or costly exit fees for switching retailers in the future. To drive online sign-ups to the Smile Power Flexi plan, Momentum offers a $50 reduction to your first power bill. In comparison to the DMO reference bill in the state, this offer is 16% lower!
For a business based out of NSW, the SmilePower Flexi is the market offer on display. Although the rates differ regarding supply charges or usage rates, the basic terms are the same as the SmilePower Flexi offer available to households. The basic terms that are unchanged are zero exit fees, no discounts and no contract period. An additional benefit that remains unchanged is that there are no credit card charges on payment, leaving your business with one less thing to worry about when making payments. Just like the residential plan, this business plan is also 16% lower than the reference price for the state!
For Victorian households, Momentum offers simplicity with three plans on offer – SmilePower Flexi, Solar Step-Up and Move Mate. The SmilePower Flexi plan contains no complex discount structures or puts offers any complicated contract terms. There may be a common misconception that savings are created only when conditional discounts exist, yet that may not always be the case. The critical point is to focus on the tariff rates and how suitable they are to your energy needs and affordability concerns. With no exit fees or discounts, SmilePower Flexi instead focuses on low usage rates to attract households. To further increase adoption, customers that apply online for SmilePower Flexi get a $50 credit on their first electricity bill. The Solar Step-Up plan is identical in terms to the SmilePower Flexi except that there is a handsome 13.5 cents/kWh FIT on offer for the power your panels export back to the grid. The Move Mate plan is advertised to offer a next business day connection (if it’s safe to do so) for people that are moving homes and would not want to be left in the dark on their first day! The $50 bonus for signing up is also a real deal sweetener!
Businesses in Victoria can enjoy the simplicity showcased by SmilePower Flexi, with the same terms available to households, other than a higher usage and supply charge. The provisions of an open contract with no exit fees or discounts remain unchanged. Additionally, for customers who are conscious of their carbon footprint, it may be heartening to know that by choosing the SmilePower Flexi plan, Momentum has pledged to feed some form of renewable energy into the grid. This may come from either their parent company Hydro Tasmania or another renewable generator. Businesses are also offered the Solar Step-Up plan at a 13.5 cents/kWh FIT rate as well as the Move Mate plan for a next business day connection (if it’s safe to do so) for businesses that are changing locations.
MOMENTUM South Australia
For homes and businesses in South Australia, it is a situation starkly similar to a horror movie when the electricity bill comes in the mail. If your home wanted a provider which focuses on simplicity across the board, then you may be interested to hear about the options available from Momentum Energy. Instead of clouding the judgement of customers with elaborate discount setups, Momentum’s Smile Power Flexi is a straightforward plan that is easy to understand. Instead of discounts, Momentum has presented the rates for supplying electricity to the property and usage charges with clarity. With no presence of contract terms, there are no exit fees involved in this plan. Compared to the default market offer prices in the state, this plan works out to be a nice 11% less expensive!
The Smile Power Flexi is extended to include small businesses as well. Once again, the plan offers no discounts but focus on providing clear and concise supply and usage tariffs. By making the rates they offer as transparent as possible, businesses in South Australia can easily estimate what their bill payment is going to be from their usage. That transparency can help enterprises manage their budgets and operating costs in a more controlled fashion. Flexibility for a business is promoted by the absence of exit fees or a lock-in contract for the plan. This plan is also a18% lower than the DMO reference price for SA!

This will happen within the same calendar year as they bill their SmilePower customers.
