With a rate that's 28-40% cheaper in off-peak, than peak – we're putting you in charge and giving you access to a huge opportunity to save on your bill. 28-40% off-peak savings vary depending on whether you have a low or standard usage profile and the meter configuration at your property.

16 hours a day, plus all weekend long.

You don't need to choose just one off-peak hour a day, to cram in your power use like the other retailers offer...

Relax! You’ve got 16 hours a week day and all weekend long to benefit from Off Peak. So shift a little, or a lot – you've got the power.

Put the savings in your pocket.

There are 29 networks across Aotearoa, most of which offer cheaper off-peak rates. But most Kiwi retailers don’t give access to cheaper off-peak rates, which means they're taking away the huge opportunity for customers to lower their power bills. A BS power deal? Yeah, we think so, too.

So we’re not only passing through the network off-peak rates, we’re adding to them – even more reason for you to consciously shift your power use to cheaper off-peak times.

FAQs

Why is Off Peak Wellington only?

Our new Off Peak plan is a pilot plan offered in Wellington to those on the Wellington Electricity network. We'll be rolling out Off Peak to the rest of Aotearoa very soon, but in the meantime, we'd love your feedback to help us improve the experience and offering. Get in touch at hello@flickelectric.co.nz

What are the Off Peak hours?

Off Peak hours are 11am-5pm, 9pm-7am and all weekend 12am Saturday - 11.59pm Sunday.

How much cheaper is off-peak than peak?

There's an 8c difference between Wellington's off-peak and peak rates, which gives customers a whopping 28-48% differential by shifting usage to off-peak from peak. So we’re not only passing through the network off-peak rates, we’re adding to them – even more reason for you to consciously shift your power use to cheaper off-peak times.

What are the Off Peak plan terms and conditions?

You can read the full Off Peak terms and conditions here.

Why not just give us free power?

While free power sounds good - and it works for some people - the realities of busy lives mean many other people struggle to jam enough of their power use into that one hour on a regular basis to make a real and ongoing difference. Instead, giving access to the cheaper off-peak rates for 16 hours every single week day, and 24 hours a day at weekends, we’re enabling people to spread all those jobs out and still save.

How much can I save on my bill if I move usage to off-peak?

It’s over to you how much you can save, as we like to say, the power is in your hands. What we can tell you is the rate for off-peak (and actually peak at Flick too) is one of the best hourly kilowatt rates out there. Try a bill compare to see what you’d save with Flick even on our standard rate, and that’s even before you factor in savings from off-peak hours.
