Frequently Asked Questions
Can I pay the same amount every month?
- How do I set up a Direct Debit?
What’s the difference between a Low User Plan and a Standard User Plan?
If you use less than 8,000 units a year (about 660kwh/month) at your primary residence, the Low User option may be best for you. This rises to 9,000 units (750kwh/month) in parts of the lower South Island.
- a lower daily fixed charge
- a higher variable charge for each unit of electricity you use. The Low User option is only available for your primary residence and not, for example, for a holiday home.
Standard User option
If you use more electricity, a Standard User option may be better.
- a higher daily rate
- a slightly lower rate for each unit of electricity you use.
Why is my bill an estimate?
There are a couple of reasons why your bill may have been an estimate:
- The meter reader may not have had access your property
- We might have received an actual read for your electricity but not for gas, so we have estimated your gas usage (or vice versa)
- If you have a smart meter, it may not have been communicating on the scheduled billing date
Please feel free to email us your reading or send a photo of your meter read (preferably timestamped) to email@example.com and we will update your bill to an actual read.
We require a reading to be done by a contractor at least every 4 months.
