As of 1st February 2018, electricity retailer Pacific Hydro has become Tango Energy. The retail arm of the renewable generation owner Pacific Hydro has been selling electricity in the Victorian electricity market for a number of years under the same banner. It’s also been steadily building market share with its low price, no frills market offers and is now looking to grow significantly, launching the new brand Tango Energy for it’s residential and business retail offers.
Tango Energy’s electricity plans
Tango Energy has introduced three plans into both the residential and small business market in Victoria as well as a single standing offer for South Australia. They also offer to tailor a plan for commercial business spending over $30,000 p.a on electricity.
In Victoria, Tango Energy plans include:
- Home Select and Home eSelect (market offers) and Home Standing (standing offer).
- Business Select and Business eSelect (market offers) and Business Standing (standing offer).
The eSelect plans offer a $50 upfront bill credit (over the otherwise equivalent Select plans) but require you to have paperless billing and direct debit.
The Tango Energy plans include a ~10% increase in usage rates from Pacific Hydro’s 2017 rates, but that still leaves Tango Energy as one of the three cheapest retailers in Victoria for a household using 20kW per day on their Home eSelect plan. Savvy, price-conscious Victorian electricity households have been singing the praises of Pacific Hydro on Whirlpool and other forums for some time – and it appears Tango Energy is sticking to the successful formula. But it’s not just about residential customers. Central to the rebrand and website is Tango’s slogan “Your Business, Our Energy”, with a considerable focus on the business market from the small/medium segment right up to large commercial customers.
