Is There an Energia Pay As You Go Tariff?

The provider currently does not provide Pay As You Go (PAYG) services to the public. 

The supplier only provides prepayment plans to customers who need help managing their debts or to customers that are experiencing financial hardship (proof required). 

If you fit one of these categories, and you’d like to learn more, contact Energia to find out if you can get a PAYG offer.

What else is important besides rates? Just because an energy company has the cheapest rates, it doesn’t necessarily mean they have the best experience in store for you. Customer experience is becoming a more important factor in customers’ decision-making when it comes to choosing a provider. Energia has some of the best customer reviews for a big company around.
