Hear from our customers

Oscar Williams, Adelaide, December 2021

"Since signing up with Amber, I’ve been paying a small cost of just $15 each month to access renewable energy at wholesale prices. On sunny or windy days where prices can go down to six or even four cents, Amber actually pays me to charge my car. That’s also when I’ll do all the washing and drying and use my heavy appliances."

"Amber’s mobile app allows me to track electricity prices and helps me figure out the best time of day, or day of the week, to run certain appliances. I find midday on the weekend a good time to put on a load of washing, and I like to pre-cool my house with air conditioning at around 2pm in the afternoon before prices go up in the evening."
