Deferred Winter Payment

Meridian Energy and Fonterra Farm Source have partnered to give Farm Source customers a break from paying power bills over winter.

Each year, Deferred Winter Payment lets you defer payment of your June, July, August and September power bills until November.

Get your bill by email

Email bills are free. They’re simple to manage, registering is quick and easy, and online bills save paper, printing, and postage. You could save too. If you get paper bills instead, there’s a $1 charge.

If you’re a MyMeridian customer, go to ‘Settings’ to change to email bills.

If you’re not on MyMeridian, you can use our Update Contact Info form. 

Does the amount on your bill not look right?

If we’ve sent you an estimated bill, and you want a bill with your actual power use, you can send us a meter reading.

If you send your reading within 5 business days of your bill, then we'll send you an amended bill for the actual power you've used. 

Choose your billing period

If you’ve got a smart meter you can choose to have it measure your usage on the last day of every month so that your usage period matches the calendar month. This makes it easier to compare your bills to each other, line up your billing period with a seasonal tariff (if you have one) and manage your expenses. You can still choose what date we issue your bill and therefore the date your bill is due for payment.

If you have more than one site then we can organise for all of your meters to be read at the same time, allowing you to have all of your bills from us together.

Speak to one of our dedicated agribusiness specialists for more information on billing periods, seasonal tariffs and set up.

Flexible payment options

Paying your bill through your rural supplier is simplest. You get an increased prompt payment discount if you pay through one of our associated rural supply companies. But if you’re not paying through a rural supply company, you’ve still got plenty of options for paying directly. 

If you have multiple connections then there is further information you should read.
