About Lumo Energy

Lumo Energy operates in VIC and SA only. Despite this, Lumo keeps its prices affordable enough to be up to 23% less than the reference price.

Customers across South Australia also have access to Lumo Rewards, which involves getting discounts and vouchers from a range of retailers just by being a customer.

While Lumo Energy rates are encouragingly low, this does come at a price. Lumo Energy isn't the best choice for solar customers as its feed-in tariffs are lower than others and it doesn't offer great GreenPower options.

Lumo Energy also doesn't share the same renewable credentials as its owner, Snowy Hydro.

Lumo Energy only caters to two states but it does offer the option of bundling both gas and electricity into one plan. This is convenient for customers to pay their utilities in one place.

Lumo Energy plans are variable, spanning both electricity and gas, and without further discounts. SA customers will receive access to Lumo Rewards but its plan offerings differ depending on your location.


Lumo Energy electricity plans

There are a variety of plans available for electricity-only customers across both SA and VIC. These plans have no discounts included, but SA customers still get their Lumo Rewards.

Lumo Energy electricity plans can be bundled with gas plans to keep paying bills more convenient. The electricity-only plans include:

  • Value (VIC only). Customers in VIC can fix their Lumo Energy rates until 31st January 2025. There are no exit fees and standard moves are free, including connections, disconnections and meter readings.
  • Basic (SA only). This is the main electricity plan in South Australia, with no contract terms or exit fees. Lumo Energy customers in SA can get access to the Lumo Rewards program on this plan.
  • Plus (VIC & SA). Customers in SA can enjoy $25 Bonus Lumo Rewards Credits on signup for electricity plans with $50 Lumo Rewards Credits when bills are paid on time. VIC customers are eligible for free connections and disconnections when they move house.
  • Standing Offer (VIC only). This plan gives Victorian customers the chance to use the Victorian Default Offer (VDO) for electricity, with free standard moves.


Lumo Energy gas plans

Lumo Energy also offers natural gas-only plans to its customers in SA and VIC that closely mirror its electricity-only offers. These plans include:

  • Value (VIC only). Lumo Value allows customers to fix their gas rates until 31st January 2025, with free standard gas moves including connection and disconnections.
  • Basic (SA only). This is the basic gas deal available in South Australia. No discounts are available but customers gain access to Lumo Rewards. There are no contract terms or exit fees.
  • Plus (VIC and SA). South Australia customers have access to Lumo Rewards on this plan and customers across Victoria gain free standard moves for gas. There are no exit fees with quarterly billing options.
  • Standing Offer (VIC only). With this plan, Victorian customers gain Lumo’s Standing Offer for gas and free standard moves.

Customers are free to bundle their plans together, though there won’t be discounts for those who do.


Does Lumo Energy offer solar plans?

Unlike most energy companies in Australia, Lumo Energy is not currently offering dedicated solar plans, nor is it offering solar panel packages for new customers.
