Switching to a cheaper retailer can also help keep pressure on energy retailers to offer better prices. About 111,000 New Zealanders switched power companies this winter, with Electric Kiwi, Flick and Mercury gaining more than 2000 customers each. Genesis lost the most customers — 6341 — though it remains the largest residential retailer with 26% market share.
Consumer Powerswitch lets you check if you could save money on electricity and gas. Just enter your details into the calculator to find the cheapest energy deals.
