About Us

We supply energy, but really we’re in business to change lives.

Who Are We?

Same energy, different outlook

Link Energy is a different energy supplier. We’re here to provide an alternative with great rates, WOW customer service, and a warm-hearted feeling every time you use energy with us. Supply power, give power, empower. That’s what we do best.

We have a bright idea for a good cause

Aside from helping you make the best choice for your home or business, we do something more for our community. By donating LED light bulbs to nonprofits, we help them lower their operational costs and utilise the money saved to provide much needed services to people and families in our communities.

We believe every day is an opportunity to do something good, socially. Let us show you how we can bring social energy to your home or business.

Our Story

Link Energy was founded with a vigorous spirit and a lofty objective: offer competitively priced energy supply supported by WOW customer service while doing business as a force for good.

Every idea starts with a problem. Ours was simple: energy has become a commodity. We flick the switch, the bulb flickers on and each month we pay the bill (boring, we know). Now more than ever, the energy industry has more competition, more choice, more clarity, more power to consumers like us. But how do you end up choosing a supplier? Is it the price? The customer service?

It turns out there was a simple explanation. The energy industry is dominated by a handful of companies that fight on pricing while still reaping huge profits from consumers. We started Link Energy to create an alternative.

We are here to reinvent the way we all think of the energy industry. An industry that we’re happy to be changing. For the better. For you.

We believe that settling your energy supply should be simple and rewarding. It should leave you happy and warm-hearted.

Lighting accounts for around a third of energy costs for nonprofits, which can take a big bite out of an already thin charity budget. To help address this problem, we promise to donate on behalf of our customers an equivalent in certified LED light bulbs to local nonprofits. By doing so, we reduce the energy costs for nonprofits to a minimum so they can make an even bigger difference in the communities we all work and live in. We call this social energy.

There’s nothing complicated about it. Same power, different outcome.

Our Values

We believe that what is good for business should be good for the world. Anything we do, we do with heart and grit.

Heart

noun | \’härt\
The place were emotions are felt.

Heart means treating others how they would like to be treated. Heart means stopping when others walk by. Heart means daring to be different. Heart means caring deeply for every stakeholder. Heart means wearing our colours on our sleeves. Heart means using business as a force for good.

Grit

noun | \’grit\
Mental toughness and courage.

Grit means doing the right thing even when it’s the hard thing. Grit means leaning in even when someone says it’s impossible. Grit means going above and beyond to wow our customers, employees and communities. Grit means challenging the status-quo. Grit means unflinching customer service.

Social Energy

Social Energy is the act of giving back to the community while energizing with Link Energy.

Choose Plan

1
  • You sign up with one of our many Link Energy energy programs available and pick a cause that is close to you.

Give Power

2
  • We tally up the number of Link Energy customers by total energy consumption and plan a yearly donation of certified LED light bulbs to chosen local nonprofits.

Empower

3
  • The nonprofits receive and install the LED light bulbs with our help and start saving on energy costs.

Customers and nonprofits are now energized by Social Energy.

Savings on energy costs are reinvested in each and every nonprofit, so they can make an even bigger difference in the communities we work and live in.

“Hold on,” you’re thinking. “Why give an LED light bulb? Why not just lower my energy rates?”

Glad you asked. We believe that a monetary donation is often a temporary solution, not a lasting one. It can contribute to a culture of dependency that isn’t very sustainable.

Instead of donating money, we set ourselves to find a different, more sustainable way to give back. More important, we wanted to offer something that nonprofits in our community would truly benefit from so we can all feel awesome. Because everyone wants to feel awesome.

Why give an LED light bulb?

We believe that all donations should be maximized. By using our Giving Budget to purchase LED light bulbs, the actual donation is $57 per bulb on average over the lifespan of the bulb. On top of that, the selected non profits in our communities provide a positive environmental impact by using less energy.

We are here to help nonprofits lower their general operational costs so they focus on what they do best, whatever it may be, and make an even bigger difference in the communities. Right now, on average $1 out of every $3 spent on energy for nonprofits goes directly towards lighting.

Reduces lighting costs up to 75%
