Dodo Power & Gas serves the energy needs of just over 90,000 customers throughout Australia, holding less than 1% of Australia's energy consumer base. It's the trading name of M2 Energy Pty Ltd.

The company keeps things simple with only one electricity market offer available in each state that the service is available in. It's a privately owned company based in Melbourne, with call centres in Manila, the Philippines.

Dodo Power & Gas was established in 2001 as the energy retailing arm of the internet provider. The company is partly Australian owned, with parent company Vocus Group operating in both Australia and New Zealand.

The company is not carbon neutral, neither in its organisation nor in the products offered.
