Why we're involved?
iO Energy’s mission is to maximise the use of low-cost renewable energy in order to accelerate our transition to a zero carbon future, and our customers pay less for cleaner electricity by becoming smarter energy users.
Our approach emphasises energy flexibility—using the cleanest and cheapest electricity possible, by changing your time of use to the daytime, when South Australian electricity is an average 80% renewable. Evening electricity, by contrast, is only 38% renewable on average.
Thermally efficient homes are extremely energy flexible as they can easily be heated and cooled when electricity is cleanest, and will retain that heat for a long time. The 10 Star Home is the ultimate example of a thermally efficient home, and we’re proud to be associated with it for the example that it sets.
How we're assisting in resilient built environments.
iO Energy sells 100% carbon neutral electricity, and iO Energy customers directly use the cleanest electricity they possible can.
Our approach to selling electricity emphasises energy flexibility—using the cleanest and cheapest electricity possible, by changing your time of use to the daytime, when South Australian electricity is an average 80% renewable. Evening electricity, by contrast, is as little as 38% renewable on average.
You can easily change the time of use for many devices. Whitegoods, pool pumps, hot water storage systems, heat pumps, hydronic and storage heaters, and reverse cycle air conditioners are all examples of devices that are or can easily be made energy flexible.
Adding health and amenity for the user.
It’s a goal of iO Energy to help our customers reduce their energy costs, increase the cleanliness of their power consumption, and improve the comfort of their homes.
The iO Energy approach to using electricity enables you to achieve all three at once, not to mention offers the peace of mind that you are using energy in the best way you possibly could be.
Empowering owners choices.
Our electricity plans have reinvented off-peak electrical pricing. We reveal the fact that renewable electricity is by far the cheapest type of energy produced in human history, because rather than blend the cost of renewable electricity with fossil fuel generated electricity, we offer time-of-use electrical plans that allow you to use more renewable energy for less money.
In addition to that, we help educate our customers on how they could be using electricity better, so that they can continually improve their energy consumption over the long-run.
