Firstly, tell us a little about how Prime Energy came about?
What was the inspiration behind it?My inspiration was to provide NZ businesses with a competitive, customer focussed alternative to traditional electricity retailers. There appeared to be a lack of true diversity when the electricity sector with the larger retailers having “sub-brands” or percentage ownership of the smaller retailers (their competitors). I incorporated Prime Energy and commenced the process to become a Tier 1 Retailer, competing for customers head to head with all other Retailers. Prime offers competitive pricing, a one call solution for all electricity related requirements and I believe a level of service envied by our competitors.
How are you different from traditional electricity companies?
At Prime the customer is our focus because we are small, we are agile and will react to your requests quickly.
Our personalised service team will respond to your calls in a fast, efficient manner, no request being too small or too large. Prime is your one-stop electricity provider and total energy solution.
What do many of us not know about the energy we are using?
In New Zealand a total of 75% of all electricity generation comes from renewable sources (geothermal, hydro, bioenergy and wind) the fourth highest in the OECD.
What is your recommendation for keeping household costs down when it comes to electricity usage?
A large percentage of household/business consumption is contributed to traditional incandescent types. Previously the price of LED solutions has been a barrier but with increasing supply competition and
greater quality controls the modern LED has become more cost effective a and a very viable alternative.
This year you are sponsoring one lucky family to enjoy free power for a year. Tell us a little about the initiative?
Prime has previously supported various charities as part of our social responsibility initiative. This year Prime has committed to get more involved with our sponsorship and take a personal interest in the recipients we choose to support. Looking forward to confirming our support Family.
