Flat power plan
On our Flat plan, you'll get a price that stays the same, day and night. If you like to set and forget with a consistent price each and every day, this is the plan for you.
Why choose Flat?
Life’s unpredictable but your power bill doesn’t have to be. Flat is our simple pricing plan bringing you steady power prices so that you can switch off and let your power do its thing.
With Flat, you’re free to use your power when you want to (no clock-watching here) - the kWh price you’ll pay is the same, no matter the time or day of the week. And because fairness is what we stand for, you’ll get the benefits of fair pricing, and no fixed-term contracts or exit fees. Simple, stress-free… sorted.
This plan is for you if:
You’re a ‘keep it simple’ kinda person and predictable bills are your thing.
You tend to use most of your power during peak times (7am-11am and 5pm-9pm on weekdays, except in Christchurch where it's 7am-9pm on weekdays) and you’d find it hard to shift your usage to take advantage of off-peak pricing.
You don’t want to have to think about what times or days you’re using power.
How Flat works:
Pay a fair flat rate for your power all day, every day
Keep track of your usage and your power bills on your Flick Customer Dashboard
Pick billing and payment options that work for you - you’re in charge

What price will I pay on the Flat plan?
On our Flat plan you will pay a set kWh rate for the power you use that stays the same throughout the day plus a fixed daily charge.
Your price is made up of a number of components, including generation, transmission and distribution, your Flick Fee, and things like the Electricity Authority (EA) levy.
Prices are subject to change from time to time as outlined in our Flat plan terms and conditions here.

Will I save more money on Off Peak or Flat?
This depends on when you use your power and whether you want to or are able to shift your usage to take advantage of cheaper rates at off-peak times.

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.
