How Power Wholesale works 

Power Wholesale works by simply giving you access to the real prices of the wholesale energy market. 

These are the prices your provider normally pays for your electricity. 

Are wholesale electricity prices cheaper? 

The cost of your electricity changes throughout the day. During the day when solar is abundant, the grid is flooded with cheap, clean energy and prices are typically at their lowest. In the early evenings when the sun has set and during peak residential energy use, fossil fuel generators supply power to the grid and prices are typically highest.  

Responding to supply and demand  

To avoid high prices on the wholesale market when the grid’s energy demand and price is high, businesses can reduce their electricity usage. Put simply, demand response rewards businesses for powering down when prices are high and ramping up when they are low (during the day).   

Demand response doesn’t have to mean big changes in power use. Even small changes can make a difference. It can be as simple as powering down non-essential operations when you receive a signal from the energy market or moving more energy intensive operations to different times of the day.

How Power Wholesale pricing works

The wholesale electricity price (also referred to as the spot price) is the price of electricity in the National Electricity Market (NEM). Energy is bought and sold on the NEM, generators sell into this market and electricity retailers buy from it. 

Wholesale electricity prices fluctuate throughout each day but tend to low during the day. Prices usually only rise when the demand is high, or supply is low. Despite this constant movement, most retailers charge fixed rates. We give you direct access to the wholesale market so that you can make the most of the lows while managing the price peaks. 

Flow Power passes this wholesale price onto you, plus our retail margin.
