Energy Locals new plan helps Victorians save on daytime energy costs

Energy Locals 2 mins read
  • Energy Locals has launched a new Daytime Saver plan in Victoria (Citipower, Powercor, and United Energy networks)

  • Daytime Saver provides customers with reduced rates of 9.5c/kwh between 10am-3pm every day

  • Plan is designed to encourage usage while solar energy in the grid is at its highest.

Good news for Victorians looking to reduce household costs.

Energy Locals is excited to launch its new Daytime Saver plan for Victorian households in the Citipower, Poweror, and United networks.

The plan enables users to pay just 9.5c/kWh for power between 10am-3pm every day by letting customers benefit from the times when solar energy floods the grid - making it a cleaner and cheaper time to power customers' days.

Energy Locals founder Adrian Merrick says this is a great option for Australians that are at home during the day.

”Whether you work remotely, care for your family, or simply enjoy spending time at home, this plan allows you to use electricity for all your needs - from doing laundry, running cooling & heating/ to charging your electric vehicle - without worrying about high costs or the environmental impact.”

Depending on the network and tariff, Daytime Saver is up to 30% below the Victorian Default Offer.

Beyond the potential significant cost-savings, Merrick also adds that there are major environmental benefits of this plan.

“Solar energy is most plentiful in the grid during the middle part of the day so by encouraging usage that aligns with these periods, more renewable energy can be consumed.”

Eraring extension risks higher power bills and kids’ health

May 23, 2024 Parents for Climate is appalled by the NSW Government’s decision to back coal instead of clean energy by extending the life of Australia’s largest coal-fired power station, Eraring, near Newcastle. Nic Seton, CEO for Parents for Climate said: “This go-slow decision on climate action undermines investment in clean energy and increases dangerous climate pollution that is harming NSW families now. Families struggling with bills want to see governments invest in long-term solutions that lower electricity bills, not expensive delays to our clean energy transition. “We know that clean energy is the best way to reduce power bills…

Solar Citizens has condemned the NSW Government for undermining the urgent transition to cheaper, cleaner renewables, including solar, by extending the production of dirty coal-fired power at Eraring for four years.Solar Citizens CEO Heidi Lee Douglassaid, “It’s deeply disappointing that in 2024 the NSW Government is backing yesterday’s outdated, polluting technology and passing the cost of keeping coal-fired power open to NSW’s energy users.“While media reports suggest there is no upfront payment to Origin Energy to keep Eraring open, the community is paying the cost of a missed opportunity to invest more in rooftop solar, batteries connected to home solar,…

Tim Buckley, director of independent public interest think tank Climate Energy Finance released the following statement on the announcement today of a 2 year extension to the operation of the Eraring coal power station on the NSW central coast, Australia’s largest. “The news today that the NSW government has committed to pay up to $450m of public money to cover likely losses by coal operator Origin Energy to keep Eraring power station open to 2027, 2 years beyond its planned August 2025 closure date, is the devastating consequence of a decade of government planning failure. “This is essentially Coalkeeper 2.0…
