Buy power direct at the wholesale rate

Using smart meter technology we pin point exactly when your power is used and then charge you the wholesale price. This means we can pass on your power at cost, and you are not paying a higher fixed rate.

Savings with spot pricing

Every power company in New Zealand buys power at the 'spot price' which changes every 30min. Traditional power companies then on-sell that power at a fixed higher rate to cover fluctuations. If the price for power is low they are making an increased profit on the price their customers are paying. 

Power Direct is different, as a wholesale power company our costs change depending on the spot price. When the spot price is low it’s our customers who see the power savings.   

You can keep track of the spot price in your My Account area.

How my pricing is made up

As a wholesale provider we pass on your electricity charges at cost, along with the ‘spot price’ of power and a small retail margin. Here you can see a breakdown of how your pricing is made up.
