WATTever is a trading name of EVtricity Pty Ltd and provides energy saving services including comparing electricity retailer prices for the information of buyers (the Service).

Before proceeding please read these Terms of Use and our Privacy Policy. Your use of the WATTever website and/or the Service indicates your agreement to be bound by these Terms of Use. By using and continuing to access the WATTever website and/or the Service, you are deemed to have accepted the Terms of Use. These Terms Of Use constitute a legally enforceable agreement between you and WATTever. You acknowledge and agree that WATTever may use your personal information in accordance with the Privacy Policy.

If you do not agree with the Terms Of Use, do not access or use the WATTever website or the Service.

WATTever reserves the right at any time to amend these Terms of Use at their discretion, by posting amended Terms of Use on the WATTever website.

The Nature of our service

WATTever is an information service to assist consumers to make informed choices before enquiring or buying from a seller of the products and services compared through the WATTever website. WATTever does not provide advice or recommendations to you about whether you should or should not purchase any particular product. You must rely on your own enquiries and judgement, considering your personal situation to decide if a product is suitable for you.

WATTever is an independent service and is not owned or controlled by any of the providers of the products and services presented through the WATTever service.

Information we provide

WATTever sources information and pricing about products and services from a variety of sources including:

  • publicly available price fact sheets from the retailers of products and services
  • publicly available information from regulatory bodies and other government or industry sources relating to the products and services
  • information provided directly to WATTever by retailers of products and services

WATTever takes reasonable steps to ensure that the information provided on the WATTever website is accurate and comprehensively covers the products available in the market. However, WATTever does not warrant that the information provided on the WATTever website is fully accurate or complete at any given time, as there may be delays in third parties providing information on changes and time required for WATTever to update product details. The information provided by WATTever via the Service may not include all retailers or all products that are available and you acknowledge that there may be other products available which are not included in the Service. The information that we provide on the WATTever website may not include all special or temporary offers offered elsewhere by a retailer.

The information presented to you by the Service is provided to you to help you make an informed choice when choosing products. The information we provide is of a generic nature, and does not take into account individual customer circumstances that may affect the terms on which a retailer is willing to make a product available to a customer.

Information you provide to us

All the information you provide to WATTever is subject to our Privacy Policy. You can view our Privacy Policy here.

The information you provide to us is used to filter the entire set of products and services so that only the products and services that are relevant to you are presented to you. For example, if you choose GreenPower options we will only present you with plans for GreenPower options.

If you do not provide information that is required for us to assess which products are relevant to you, then we will make assumptions about your electricity product needs based on statistical probability. For example, if you do not provide information about the presence of a solar PV system at your premises, we will assume you do not have solar PV, since most Australian homes do not have solar PV systems.

If you provide incorrect information, the WATTever service may present products and services that are not suitable or relevant to your needs and your circumstances. Notwithstanding any other provision of the Terms Of Use, WATTever has no liability to you in such circumstances in respect of any product you purchase that does not meet your needs or which you are otherwise unhappy with and this is a matter between you and the relevant Service Provider from whom you have purchased the Product.
