Flick Electric Power Plans
Flick Electric NZ wants to offer power the right way, by being completely transparent, fair and honest with everything they do.
It all began back in 2014 when 6 Wellingtonians decided to disrupt an industry that they were frustrated with. The end result is a business that has grown significantly in 5 years, but the fundamentals underlying it have remained the same. They pride themselves on offering a fairer deal through New Zealand’s wholesale power market. Flick power are proud to be certified as a CarboNZero company and have been given the tick as a fair and inclusive employer, on top of paying staff at least a living wage. You can compare their electricity prices in NZ with ease by using glimp’s comparison tool.

Flick electric rates
On the Freestyle plan, the Flick Electric rates mirror those of the wholesale marketplace.
However, on the FIXIE plan, Flick create estimates based on average usage and the most common meter configurations in your given network. For those living in places where peak and off-peak prices are available, Flick Electric also weighs that in consideration for your estimate.
Flick Electric Plans
If you want to try and play the game of real time power pricing, the Flick Electric Freestyle plan is for you. Every 30 minutes, the price of power will update, reflecting the real time price of wholesale power. Use more electricity when it’s cheaper and less when it’s expensive, simple really.
The second of the two Flick Electric power plans is the Flick Electric FIXIE plan. On this plan you’ll have a secure price that you’ll pay per unit. This price will stay fixed for 6 months at a time. This way you’ll always have a steady bill with no nasty surprises. It’s easy to switch out of the plan, the only thing fixed is the price per unit, there’s no contract to keep you locked up.
All power companies in New Zealand provide power through the national grid. The grid is partially made up of renewable sources but there also some other sources like coal which aren’t environmentally friendly. The only way to know for sure that you’re being 100% renewable is to only use power when the grid is being supplied by renewable sources. On the Flick app CHOICE can show you the exact mix of power on the grid at any time, so you can still be as environmentally conscious as you’d like.
Yes they do, so you can constantly monitor the price and mix of power (clean v dirty power) running through the grid.
The big one is the Flick Electric app, which is essential for making the most of what Flick has to offer, like fluctuating power prices and renewability mix.
