GloBird has over 60,985 electricity customers throughout Victoria, New South Wales, Queensland and South Australia. This is almost double the number of customers since our last survey in 2019-20.

It also offers gas supply.

Established in 2014, the privately held, Australian owned company is based in Mitcham, Victoria, with call centres in Melbourne. GloBird Energy has won the MOZO award for low energy rates in Victoria multiple times, and the company's focus is on providing competitive pricing alongside customer service.

Neither GloBird's organisation nor the product it offers is carbon neutral.
