The Flick Electric Co. app is the first that gives Kiwis real time info about the carbon impact of the electricity in the system, and the market price of power.

This means Kiwis now have a choice - about the environmental impact of using electricity, and the price they pay - and it’s free for anyone to use.

New Zealand makes lots of clean electricity, but even a little bit of the dirty stuff has a big carbon impact. When you flick the switch, you get what you get, regardless of the power company you’re with.

For the first time, we’re giving Kiwis a live snapshot of what’s in the national grid:

- Live information about the total carbon impact of electricity generation;
- Ability to receive alerts based on total carbon emissions, so you know the best time to use electricity to reduce your emissions;
- Information about the different types of electricity generation in New Zealand and their emissions.

If you’re a Flick power customer, even better! The app also delivers your price and bill information to your phone.

- Live price dial showing your changing variable cost of electricity;
- Ability to turn on high and low price alerts, so you know the best time to use electricity to save money;
- Access to your latest bill and savings information;
- Ability to change your Volt settings to choose a regular bill amount and better manage your budget.

What's New

Version 1.1.9

Say hello to the new and improved CHOICE tab! The donut’s gone, replaced with a swish new restyled indicator that uses colour to represent NZ’s current carbon emission levels.

We’ve also ditched ‘CHOICE’ from the Flick app name, because we’re using it to specifically refer to the carbon information we share with Kiwis. Instead, the Flick app now goes by — you guessed it — the Flick App. We reckon it’s simpler and less confusing (and we’re all about that!).

Love it but... I want more


One word: fairness. I switched to Flick because there are no tricks, false discounts or abusive margins. But to be fair, not including the GST in the unit price doesn't sound like the most transparent thing to do. Could you please add it to the price so we know what we're *actually* paying?

Relatively useful, but with bugs


The app’s not working properly since yesterday. It logged me out. Then after log on, it’s just not loading carbon emission info, prices or bill info. Please fix it.



As a consumer I always pay gst. Not sure why this is not included, it's a bit misleading on what I'm actually paying. Otherwise generally happy with the app.
