We assessed how to choose an Open Electricity Market in our previous post. After much research, we decided to go ahead with Geneco as our preferred electricity supplier.




Why we choose Geneco (Updated Apr 2020)

After extensive research, we decided to choose Genoco as our supplier. Geneco has the best all-round deal for fix rates for this month. We took up the fix plan for the next 2 years. These are the factors that swayed us.


  • The cheapest fixed 24 months plan at 17.98c per Kwh + Price Match for 24 months plan
Base on the electricity tariff over the past 2 years, it has never gone below the fix rates advertised. In addition, having a fixed plan takes away any doubts about price fluctuations in Tariffs. It will make planning your finance a lot easier. For Geneco, they will price match for similar plans for their 24 months plan. That effectively made them the cheapest in town!

  • Discount Rebate for a selected time
Get a one time rebate of $5050 off your bill if you apply for selected plans.  Used the Code TAKE50 ($50 off bill rebate, limited signup.


Want more discount?

There are additional discounts if you use a referral code. For additional $20 rebate on top of the ones already provided. you can use this code 8154 2233 * under Referral Code

Established Company
