Customer Testimonials
Surajit, SA
"I found Discover Energy is truly value for money considerations. I got 25c/kWh FIT tariff as opposed to 14c/kWh with my current electricity provider, which is way more great going for me. The customer service is really appreciated and it was a seamless way forward. I must thank Mr Pawan Verma who helps me to take out to the best deal I availed now!"

"I joined the VPP Smart network a few months ago due to the awesome $0.25 solar feed in tariff recommended by Aussie Farmers Group Solar on offer this really helps to offset some of the solar + battery costs, during the summer a negative balance in my account to cover my winter cost, for 81 days my grid use was about 75kwh, credit of $520 using a 10KW solar and 15KW storage battery, output of 5KW to the grid per hour, and they’re Aussie."
