Why choose Flick

Fairness is at the heart of what we do.

Energy that's affordable shouldn’t be a privilege. Times are tougher than ever for many Kiwis, and the current electricity market and its flawed design allow those that generate power to dominate the market and keep prices high across the board. We’re a voice for New Zealanders, and we’re pushing hard for reform.

Join the revolution

As with any revolution, the power’s with the people. We can’t do this alone – we need you to demand change, too. While over 80 per cent of Kiwi power consumers still buy from the 'Big 5', some of you have had enough. Over 10,000 of you signed our petition to bring power prices down, and we’re continuing to push this at Government level. With Flick, you send a message to big corporations that you won’t stand by while they profiteer.


Energy hardship in Aotearoa

MBIE's energy hardship measures report for the year ended June 2022 showed that 110,000 households couldn't afford to keep their homes adequately warm. When families struggle with a basic need, it’s clear the system is failing our people.

Needlessly high prices don’t help. That’s why we’re fighting to end the market power of big power companies that are keeping prices up and stifling change by smaller companies.


Climate change 

Aotearoa's on a mission to get to net zero carbon emissions by 2050. To meet those goals, it’s critical we end our reliance on fossil fuel and make the transition to green electricity for energy. That means it's more vital than ever that power is affordable and that we build more renewable generation to meet demand. But right now the price of power is putting that energy transition at risk - so we're demanding change.
