Frequently asked questions:
How much money will I save?
Pricing varies between regions, but we have estimated a saving of approx. $350 in 12 months for a 2 person pensioner household in Auckland. This will obviously vary depending on your usage. This saving was estimated without using the app to monitor the usage, which will save even more as you will have control over your usage.
This offer is based on the Genesis eSaver Household plan
You have the option of the eSaver Household plan or the Classic plan, dependent on your usage.
What do I do next?
- It’s easier than you think, the NZ Government has made it easy to change power companies.
- Sign up to Chirpy then signup via our link under our Partner Deals on our members' menu.
- It might pay for you to check if you are locked into a long-term contract with exit penalties with your existing supplier, check this out. The Chirpy/Genesis deal only holds you for 12 months which gives you a lot of freedom. *
Will this affect my Lines Company annual payment, ie Entrust?
You will still receive your Entrust/Vector annual dividend, but unfortunately, you would not receive the TrustPower dividend which affects a few customers in The Bay of Plenty.
Does Chirpy get any benefits from me signing up to this deal?
No, we at Chirpy believe that all the benefits we negotiate should go to our Chirpy members. We take no commissions, you win all round!
I live in rural New Zealand, can I get this deal?
Yes, Genesis covers all of NZ.
How do I pay Genesis each month?
You will receive your bills by e-mail and pay by direct debit.
Can I get a deal on my LPG or Natural Gas?
Coming soon, just contact us and we will let you know as soon as we have a deal.
If you have other questions the Genesis call centre team are super helpful and can help answer your more detailed questions about your plan etc. They also have a call back feature so you don't need to worry about waiting in a queue.
* If you choose to leave before the 12 months is up, you will be asked to repay Genesis $150
