The price you pay Flick is made up of a number of different factors such as generation, transmission and distribution, Flick Fee, and even things such as the Electricity Authority (EA) levy.
On their Flat Plan you'll pay a flat kWh rate and a fixed daily charge. With their Off Peak plan you'll pay two separate kWh rates, one for off-peak times and one for peak times + a fixed daily charge.
Among the different factors, your transmission and distribution costs will depend on the meter you set up and your area of residence.
For Weekly billing we’ll send your bill each Tuesday and take your payment on Thursday via Direct Debit from your bank account or Credit Card.
For Fortnightly billing we’ll send your bill every other Tuesday and take your payment on Thursday that week via Direct Debit from your bank account or Credit Card.
For Monthly billing your bill will be available on the second Monday of each month, and we'll take payment ten days later on the Thursday via Direct Debit from your bank account or Credit Card.
You can choose to pay your exact bill amount, or use our Bill Smoother tool, to round your payments up to an amount of your choice.
By paying a little more than your normal bill amount, you'll build up a wee stash of cash that you can then use to automatically knock the top off a higher than normal bill.
Generally, standard users have higher daily charges but with a lower charge per kWh used. Flick classifies Standard users as users that use more than 8,000 units a year for residents in the North and a higher 9,000 units for those further South. Standard Users include households of more than two people who are home a lot and use a lot of electricity for heating and hot water, or large flats. Heating methods more than anything will contribute to higher usage. Heaters used constantly, like panel or oil heaters, underfloor heating, uninsulated hot water cylinders, and heated swimming/spa pools all contribute to higher usage.
Low users are those who use less electricity on average, such as people who use less than 8,000 units a year if they live in the North, or less than 9,000 units a year if they live in the South. Low Users tend to be households of one or two people living in well insulated, energy efficient houses and/or homes with gas heating or hot water.
However, keep in mind that you’re only eligible to be on the Low-User plan for your primary residence. Holiday homes and secondary properties fall under standard user ICPs, regardless of the amount of electricity used.
I'm so happy I asked Glimp for help, to find a service provider that suits our family's budget, without losing quality and unlimited data on both our mobile phones and broadband. Mele Falahola is a Comparison Specialist from Glimp and she was amazing from the beginning. Mele located the right service provider for our needs that will save us money!, fulfil our usage and more! compared to what we were using. My wife and I even asked for a comparison on our electricity bill. Mele responded immediately once she saw our monthly bills and compared it to another provider that not only do not required a contract to stick too (like the mobile and broadband provider Mele recommended) but their price per kWh was so much better! Which is why we changed that also. Thank you Mele and Glimp for your help. We can now look forward to our Christmas holiday in the Cook Islands from what we can now save. :-)
Glimp saved me time and money finding the right providers while I could focus on getting my family ready and packed for the move. Awesome customer service.
Great service, Josua from Glimp was great to deal with, very helpful service 👍
