Free net meter for CSS energy switch customers

Care Solar Solutions has partnered with Australian owned and operated energy retailer Energy Locals to get you a better deal for your solar energy.

Energy Locals is offering one of the most competitive feed-in tariffs in New South Wales at 12.87cents per kWh and there’s an added bonus if you make the switch – a free solar ready net meter worth up to $150.

Energy Locals’ Luke Melisi told CSS the company is able to offer such an attractive feed-in tariff because of the company’s structure and vision to make energy cheaper, cleaner and fairer for all.

“We’ve been in the market for just over a year,” shared Luke. “Through very little marketing and building organic relationships in the community we’ve grown to over 4,500 customers and we’re growing every day.

“The simplicity and the transparency of our pricing proposition is key to what we’re about. We see customers get screwed by their energy company every day, and our promise is not to do that.  The fact is, the majority of people will also save money by switching to us too… We are 100% Australian owned and operated and if someone picks up the phone and talks to us you are speaking with a local person in Melbourne.”

Energy Locals doesn’t earn money based on the number of units of energy their customers use. The company retains a small fixed service fee of $12.50 per customer per month.

“The only way we earn is through 41 cents per day in the daily supply charge… We don’t earn anything from energy usage,” added Luke.

CSS Director Phillip Butterworth commended Energy Locals for offering customers a boutique energy product and one which encourages them to install their own local renewable power.

“Partnering with Energy Locals is allowing CSS to provide our customers with a solution that will allow them to further reduce their power bills,” stated Mr Butterworth. Installing solar is one part of the process, we must also obtain the most competitive tariff rates and feed-in tariff to maximise our customer’s savings.”

Energy Locals is a social enterprise that supplies electricity to the customer and manages the billing, the administration and all the associated paperwork.

“We build discounts into our tariffs so everyone gets the same low rates upfront without having to meet any conditions to do so,” added Luke.

Care Solar Solutions specialises in solar and battery storage technology and providing a complete renewable energy solution for the home, and now businesses.

“This is a great opportunity for us to partner with local businesses in Australia and for them to spread the word about the work we're doing in the energy industry,” said Luke.
