Business power plan
We believe that getting businesses in Aotearoa on a fair and honest power deal is the business. From one kiwi business to another, we get you, and we’re here for you.
Why choose Business?
Cash flow is King when you’re running a small business. You need a power plan that’s simple, flexible and fair so that you can be sure you’re not paying more for your electricity than you need to.
With Business, budgeting is a breeze - you’ll get the predictability of fixed-generation power prices locked in for 6 months to help keep your costs on track. And because we’re founded on fairness, we make sure to pass through cheaper network prices during off-peak hours if they’re available in your area, and we reflect network price changes, too - if our costs reduce, then we’ll reduce our charges to you, too!
This plan is for you if:
You want price certainty without the long-term contract and hefty exit fees.
You’d like some flexibility with your billing options to work around your business cash flow.
You want to be able to access cheaper network prices in your area during off-peak hours to keep those overheads down (Flick, yes!).
How Business works
The generation price of your bill is fixed for 6 months; the rest (like your network and metering charges) varies slightly.

A promise to the planet
Make sure your business is moving in the right direction and doing its bit to take care of Māmā Earth. Our Flick app gives you the tools to make a difference - track the emissions being created from your business’s power usage, and keep an eye on total carbon emissions in the national grid in real time so you can choose when to switch things on and off to reduce your carbon footprint. Plus, you can choose to balance the emissions your business generates through our partner charity, Trees That Count.

“It’s interesting to see the profiling of the power over the course of a day [on Flick’s app], and that our carbon impact can be reduced by targeting certain parts of the day.”

A transparent, no frills, no bullshit, power deal
Like you, we’re a small business too - we get you!
So how is Business different to other business fixed-price power plans?
It’s fixed price power that’s fair. Business is about fixing the price of the generation part of your bill only - that’s the price of the actual electricity you use.
All the components of your bill are set out transparently so you can see exactly how much you're paying - and what for.
The cherry on top? We don't have break fees, either - so while your generation price is promised for 6 months, you're not locked in as a customer. So much goodness! We reckon it's NZ's fairest fixed price power deal.

Are there different prices for different people on Business?
There are - and it’s mainly down to which network you belong to. As you may know from our Forecast To Final Prices blog, moving energy around the country costs money so the price of electricity sometimes vary depending on location. Sames goes for Business.
Metering configuration also makes a price difference, which is true of Wholesale too (and any power price plan for that matter!). For example, if you’ve got Controlled and Uncontrolled configuration this is often more expensive than an All Inclusive or Controlled configuration (that’s because the network company can switch off power to a Controlled meter when there’s a fault or demand is very high).
The price we buy hedges for may increase or decrease. This won’t affect your 6-month price promise, but it’s possible that there will be variances in price between terms. Our finance team will be working hard to keep it pretty same-same (not to mention the absolute best price we can!), but the price has the potential to increase or decrease between term periods.
It also means customers who sign on at different times might have different fixed-term prices, simply because it’s cost us a different price to buy hedges (energy).

How do I pay my bill with Flick?
For Weekly billing we’ll send your bill each Tuesday and take your payment on Thursday via Direct Debit from your bank account or Credit Card.
For Fortnightly billing we’ll send your bill every other Tuesday and take your payment on Thursday that week via Direct Debit from your bank account or Credit Card.
For Monthly billing your bill will be available on the second Monday of each month, and we'll take payment ten days later on the Thursday via Direct Debit from your bank account or Credit Card.
You can choose to pay your exact bill amount, or open a Bill Smoother account (aka Volt) and rounding your payments up to an amount of your choice.
By paying a little more than your normal bill amount, you'll build up a wee stash of cash that you can then use to automatically knock the top off a higher than normal bill.
