“We are excited to introduce millions of new customers to this first-of-its-kind product which provides a sense of security on Fridays,” said Stephen Wagner, general manager of Ambit Energy Japan. “Spending quality time at home has become increasingly important as everyone continues to navigate different everyday challenges. With this plan, our customers enjoy hassle-free hours every Friday.”
Applications for the Free Fridays plan are open to customers on a Lighting B plan or equivalent in Hokkaido, Tohoku, Tokyo, Hokuriku, Chubu, and Kyushu areas, and customers on a Lighting A plan or equivalent in Kansai, Chugoku, and Shikoku areas.
With a plan fee (starting at 330 yen depending on capacity for customers in the Hokkaido, Tohoku, Tokyo, Hokuriku, Chubu, and Kyushu areas, and 1,650 yen for customers in Kansai, Chugoku, and Shikoku areas), customers can take advantage of a full discount on their energy consumption every Friday.
