Plans for every flicker

Off Peak power plan

On our Off Peak plan, it's easy to control how much you pay for your power. By shifting usage of big ticket items like the washing machine, dishwasher and dryer to cheaper off-peak times, you can bank savings.

Why choose Off Peak?

It’s all about those sweet savings. Move your appliance use to cheaper, off-peak hours during the day, at night and all weekend long to save when prices are up to 21 - 55% cheaper.

With Off Peak, you’re in charge – the more you shift, the more you save. And bonus, using power off-peak is kinder to the environment, too.

We know you’ll still need to use power during peak times, so we’ve made sure our peak rate is still fairly priced. And as with all things Flick, there’s no fixed-term contracts or exit fees.

Off-peak hours are 11am-5pm, 9pm-7am and all weekend

This plan is for you if:

  • You’re a bargain-hunter. Off Peak is better than a Boxing Day sale, with cheaper prices every day and night, and on the weekends

  • You’re keen to save money on your power bill without having to use less power

  • You typically use lots of power in off-peak hours already (Flick yeah, this plan was made for you), or it’s a change you reckon you’ll be able to make

How Off Peak works:

  • Get limbo low prices in off-peak times - we’re the only electricity retailer giving all Kiwis access to cheaper off-peak prices across the whole weekend!

  • Use the Flick app to keep track of your off-peak times

  • Shift your power use to off-peak hours and cash in on those super savings

Washing machine

The more you shift, the more you save.

With Off Peak, the power’s in your hands. By making a few small changes to when you consume your power, cheaper power prices are yours for the taking - think late-night laundry, baking Sundays, and dishwashing at dawn. Shift like a boss and watch the savings mount up.

Piggy bank

This plan includes our Flickin' Best Plan Promise.

We’ll be able to tell you if your electricity usage data means that you’re on the best Flick plan for your household, or if there’s savings to be made by changing to a different Flick plan. Easy!

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

It’s over to you how much you save - as we like to say, the power's in your hands. Flick's rate for off-peak (and, actually, our peak rate, too) is one of the best hourly kilowatt rates out there, so we'd suggest trying a bill compare to see what you’d save with Flick on our standard rate, then have a think about how much power you'll be able to shift to off-peak to maximise those savings.
