Aw shucks! We're all done here...

But guess what? You could still end up winning!

You could join the 20,000+ Kiwis that are getting NZ's Fairest Power Deal, with all the honest pricing, Consumer Trusted service, warm tinglies and potentially humongous savings that go along with it.

Flicksters made annual average savings of $350 on power, and you could too!

And, because we are still committed to making sure you get the best possible deal, jump on over to our promo page where you can go into the draw to win a prize pack that includes a month of free power!

You really are laughing, with Flick.

So why Flick, you say?

Wholesale power prices

Don't pay a cent more than it costs to get power to your place. Buying power at the spot price means that, instead of topping up your power company’s bank account by paying a higher, fixed rate, you’ve got the freedom to choose when and how you use power to make some serious savings.

Consumer Trusted - Flick Electric Co.

Consumer Trusted

We’re stoked to say we're New Zealand's only Consumer Trusted energy retailer. Consumer NZ did the digging and went through everything we do to make sure everything we do is fair and honest.

Easy to switch

It only takes 3 minutes to join Flick, either online or over the phone, and once you’ve given us your address, we take care of the rest (we’ll even break up with your old power company for you). Too easy!

No fixed term contracts

Sleep easy knowing that you're free to leave Flick whenever you like (although we don't think you'll want to), without any nasty break fees.

Questions? We've got some answers!

What makes Flick different?

When we say Flick is a whole new way of buying power, we're not kidding. With Flick, all the different costs that make up your power bill are unbundled. You get to see the costs of producing power and getting it to your house. And we pass these on without any mark-up, then charge a separate fee to be your retailer. Flicksters save an average $350 annually on power bills!

Each week we'll show you the full cost breakdown. It'll look something like this:

Plus, you'll be given access to tools that'll show you how much you're using and spending, as well as the real time price of electricity and the carbon impact. It's 100% straight-up, honest and fair. The power really is in your hands.

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 (spot) 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.

If you're a standard user, your Flick fee is 42¢ per day, and 1.58¢ per kWh you use.

If you're a low user, your Flick fee is 3.15¢ - 3.62¢ per kWh (depending on where you are). Flick doesn't charge you a daily fixed amount - your daily fixed charge is made up of Network and Metering charges only.

These fees cover our costs to bring you our award-winning service.

Can I join Flick?

As long as you're in an area we can supply, you have a smart meter, and pass any necessary credit checks, we'd love to have you on board!

We’re currently able to supply households and businesses throughout most of the North Island and parts of the South Island, including Central Canterbury, Queenstown, Wanaka and Dunedin. Not you? No worries! Just give us your address and contact details here and we'll let you know as soon as we come your way.

How do I switch to Flick?

Flicking over is easy - it only takes a few minutes, and even less if you have your credit card or bank details on hand. Just fill out your details on our website, send us an email to hello@flickelectric.co.nz or give us a call on 0800 4 FLICK (0800 435 425) and one of our friendly Customer Experience Advisors will help you make the switch.

If you're moving house then you'll need to contact your old provider and let them know, but if you're staying in the same place and just changing power companies then we can take care of that break up for you. As long as there are no unpaid bills, your power transfer to Flick should be complete within 10 business days (often sooner).

Want to know more?

If Flick sounds like it's the one for you, take the plunge and hit that big yellow button, baby! Unlike some power companies, you won't be locked into a fixed term contract with us, so you'll be free to leave if Flick isn't for you (we doubt it).

If you still have questions, give us a call at 0800 4 FLICK (0800 435 425), and one of your friendly Flicksters will be on hand with anything you need to know.
