Meet Rob

Owner, Sixes & Sevens café, Wellington

A power disconnection during the lunchtime rush was the last straw for cafe owner and Executive Chef Rob Crisp, who had been battling for months with his electricity supplier. Read more below...

“I tried to sign up my business with a major electricity provider and after two months of not receiving a bill, they cut off the cafe’s power right in the middle of our busiest time of day. They said it was because I never paid their bill, which is ironic because I never received a bill, even though I repeatedly asked to be sent one!” said Sixes & Sevens Cafe owner Rob Crisp.

After shopping around and hearing good things about Flick, Rob signed up.

Small to medium sized business can really reap the benefits of Flick’s model, whether you are working from home, the owner of a dairy, a hairdresser, an accountancy firm or a bakery. By shifting a few tasks to low-demand times of day, when prices on the spot market are cheaper, it can cost much less for an owner to run their business.

“I like the fact I have access to real-time information on how much electricity costs and how much I am spending, so I pick the price I want to pay for the things I need to do,” says Rob.

“Flick really got me thinking about my power use and I’ve made some small changes in my business, such as shifting staff workload to the early hours of the morning when the spot price is low to get most of the baking done, and switching things off when I’m not using them to save money on my power bill.”

Rob points to turning the coffee machine off at 4pm when the cafe closes as one simple example.

“At first I was skeptical about weekly billing as everything in my business is done on a monthly basis, but it’s actually really helped with the business cash flow and budget management. So my advice to other businesses out there is don’t be afraid of weekly billing.”

Rob says Flick has given him one less thing to worry about with the running of his business - he knows the lights won’t be going off during his business rush-hour meaning he’s as happy as his own customers.


Flick's better for business

Price alerts: Flick customers receive alerts when prices are rising via their app. This empowers customers to take charge of their electricity expenditure by shifting consumption.

Weekly billing: One of Flick's unique features is that customers are billed weekly on an actual reading (no estimates!) via their smart meter. This approach is better for cash flow and eliminates the stress of getting a huge bill at the end of the month.

No Fixed Term Contracts: Flick believes customers should be free to leave at any time if they’re not loving the Flick experience, so we don’t lock customers into contracts with nasty break fees.

Easy to switch: It takes less than 3 minutes over the phone or online, and Flick manages the transition directly with your previous power company so you don’t have to handle any awkward conversations.

How we save you money

Pricing line graph

The price of electricity changes every half an hour. But most power companies set you a flat rate that you pay all the time. At Flick we let you pay the market price of power, and you pocket the difference!

Round fees graph

We also pass through all of the costs of getting electricity to your place, without any mark-up! We split out all of the costs on your weekly bill so you can see exactly what you’re paying for, including our fee.

Questions? We've got the answers!

Can you supply my business?

We're keen to supply your SME business! We currently supply businesses with a smart meter throughout most of the North Island and parts of the South Island. Email us at hello@flickelectric.co.nz or give us a call on 0800 4 FLICK (0800 435 425) and we'll check if we're able to take you on.

What are Flick's business rates?

To get a price for your business fill in your details and one of our team will get back to you in a flash.

Flick passes through the wholesale costs of electricity to customers, then charges a separate retail fee to be their retailer. Our approach is transparent and fair.

Because we pass through the wholesale costs of supply, which include the spot price of electricity, our customers make significant savings by riding the highs and lows of the spot market - an average of 24%. Customers who can move load to lower price times of day save even more!

Does my business need a smart meter?

Flick uses half - hourly usage data, which means your business will need a smart meter to join us. This eliminates estimated readings, making your data and billing accurate – every time.

What are my billing options?

We bill weekly. Bills are emailed every Tuesday, and payment is taken on a Thursday. This makes it easy to know exactly what’s coming, and helps you keep on top of your bills.

Can I have consolidated invoice for all of the accounts I hold with you?

At this stage, we send you a weekly billing email for each account separately.

What are Flick's payment terms?

Flick makes cashflow and energy cost management easier with weekly billing and smart online tools.

We bill customers on a Tuesday, and payments are taken by Direct Debit or from a nominated Credit Card weekly on a Thursday.

In our personalised dashboard, customers can review and keep track of their half-hour usage and daily energy costs so they can identify changes they can make to save money. And our daily bill tracker means there are never any surprises come billing day. You can find out more about what to expect from your dashboard on our blog.
