Back to the future?

On 9 November 1888, Tamworth had the first street lights in the southern hemisphere powered by a  power station in Peel Street that was owned and operated by the PCCC  (Peel Cunningham County Council) who was the local council at the time.


We think it makes sense that locals have more control over things that matter and that together we can build something great.  Manilla Solar is a local retail energy brand that offers people in the local community better energy options.

How to beat the price rises?

Origin, EnergyAustralia and AGL haveall announced significant price increases. Electricity tariffs for both business and residential customers in New South Wales will soar by more than 15 per cent. The price rise took effect from 1 July 2017.

Most people are not aware that their energy rates have increased and its likely to be a shock for most people in the community when the next bill comes around.

Exactly how much your bill will increase depends on the type of tariff you are on, how much energy you use and your current provider. Shopping around is the best way to find a good deal for you and it could end up saving you a lot of money.

Energy Locals is standing out from the pack by decreasing electricity prices for households in NSW by 2.1 per cent and 2.6 per cent for businesses in NSW. Energy Locals is also increasing its solar feed-in-tariff to 12.87 cents a kilowatt hour in NSW.
