A power company for solar people, by solar people

Together, with over 12,500 Australians, we've taken back our power and are leading the solar revolution in the home.

Customer-owned

With more than 12,500 owners, when they talk we listen.

DC Power Co was launched through the world’s largest equity crowdfunding campaign for a business. We love getting our customer’s advice so much, we’re building the company with them during DC Power Co Beta. That way, we can make sure we get it right.

Designed for people with solar

With us, you won’t be forgotten.

For too long the 2 million Australian homes who generate their own power have gotten a raw deal. We live and breathe solar, so with us you’ll get transparent prices, insights to make the most of your solar and tips to help you save.

We don’t make money by selling more power

Because our business model is different.

Use lots of power or none at all because of your great solar setup? We don’t care. Our power and gas are provided to you at cost price, with no overheads. You know where your dollar is going because we’ve separated our DC fee from your usage rates. Now that’s different.
