Tasmania is set to get another electricity provider with the launch of Catch Energy in the state and the company says it will provide more choice and cost savings for consumers.

Catch Energy launched in mainland Australia earlier this year in partnership with 1st Energy.

CEO of Catch Energy Nati Harpaz said despite the Tasmanian Government’s introduction of Full Retail Competition in 2014, Tasmania only had one electricity provider, which eliminated choice for consumers.

“With today’s launch of Catch Energy,  we are pleased to be able to offer Tasmanians more choice and even greater value, helping to ease the financial pressure that many households face due to soaring energy prices,” Mr Harpaz said.

Catch Energy will also offer Tasmanians a discount on their current consumption rate and a $50 CatchBack voucher to spend on Catch.com.au as part of its Catch’s Great Australian Energy Deal.

“Catch is a trusted brand and we are committed to offering unrivalled value to Australians,” Mr Harpaz said.

“Initiatives such as our Catch Energy Deal help Australians to not only save on essential services, but also an extensive range of household and personal items available through Catch.com.au.

“It’s just another way we are helping Australians to save on the family budget, we provide the same electricity through the same network, just at a lower price.”

Catch’s Energy Deal is now available for electricity customers in Tasmania, Victoria, New South Wales and South East Queensland.
