Wholesale prices can spike up to ~$19/kWh for 0 - 8 hours each year, usually on the hottest evenings in summer.
Reducing your usage during price spikes is one of the most powerful things your household can do to save more on your Amber bills and stop supporting the profits and dirty tactics of coal and gas generators.
"Reducing your usage" during a spike typically means pre-cooling your house, then switching off the aircon and holding off on cooking dinner (if your stove and oven are electric) until the price spike is over.
But we know that reducing usage is not possible for every single household.
If you're not able to reduce your usage at all during spikes, you could pay more with Amber than with a traditional retailer over summer.
But if you're willing to try some clever tricks to reduce your usage during spikes, we think you'll love being with Amber year-round.
