We’re Powershop UK – part of the revolutionary energy company which has operated in New Zealand and then Australia since 2009. With us, you monitor energy usage through our app and then buy bundles of electricity, called Powerpacks, based on what you need, rather than an estimation of what you might use.

If you keep an eye out on our discounted Powerpacks which pop up all the time we promise it’s worth it as you could save up to an average of £170* over the year.

What we do

At Powershop UK we aim to cut through confusing and expensive tariffs, and provide personalised electricity usage data to help you better manage energy usage and spend.

Our customers only buy the electricity they need based on how much they have used. The Powershop UK app allows customers to monitor their electricity usage with or without a smart meter and provides access to a range of discounted bundles of energy called Powerpacks, which they can buy according to which gives them the best deal - even storing them for times of heavier usage, such as in winter.  

Who we are

We were founded in New Zealand in 2009 by Ari Sargent, on the belief that buying energy could be made simpler, friendlier and more transparent. An industry veteran of more than 20 years, Ari had become frustrated at how customers were being treated by energy companies – with indecipherable bills combined with complicated tariffs and contracts, often followed up with frustratingly unresponsive customer service.

Ari set up Powershop and used all his industry knowledge to make things easier. Disruptive, honest and different to anything else on the market, Powershop struck a chord with New Zealand consumers.

By the time it launched in Australia at the start of 2014 Powershop held five per cent of the New Zealand energy market. At the end of its first year in Australia the company had grown to 64,000 customers.

Powershop is now in the UK and will use npower’s buying power to let people buy electricity how they want, when they want.

Although we are financially backed by npower Powershop UK is a fully independent electricity supplier with its own pricing plan, customer service teams and technology. Dual fuel will follow later this year giving customers even greater control and flexibility.
