Bigger discount — pay through your rural supplier

Pay through one of these rural supply companies. It’s the simplest way to pay your power bill — and you get a better deal with a prompt payment discount of 12 percent. That’s two percent more than our standard discount.

Got questions about joining Meridian?

  • Does Meridian supply gas?

    We don’t currently supply gas to our customers. We know that many New Zealanders use gas at home and work, but our commitment to generating from renewable resources means we don’t provide gas. We don’t have any affiliate businesses whom we offer gas through.

  • What are Fixed Energy and Fixed Rate plans?

    Our fixed plans provide some price certainty to make your budgeting easier.

    A Fixed Energy Plan fixes only your Meridian charge each month, which includes energy and our retail services, such as meter reading, billing and customer support. We unbundle our Fixed Energy Plan rates when we quote so you can clearly see what is - and isn't - locked in.

    If you’re on a Fixed Energy Plan, you're not affected by any change to Meridian charges, but network charges and government or regulatory charges such as the Electricity Authority Levy and GST may change.

    A Fixed Rate Plan fixes your Meridian charges as per the Fixed Energy Plan, plus your network charges. It does not fix government or regulatory charges such as the Electricity Authority Levy and GST,  and is only available to residential customers

    We unbundle rates on invoices to make Fixed Energy and Fixed Rate Plans easy to understand. The duration of a fixed plan is usually two or three years.

  • How can I switch to Meridian?

    Switching happens in four easy steps:

    1. You tell us you’re joining Meridian
    2. We let your existing power company know you’re switching
    3. Your existing power company lets us know your final meter reading, which may be an estimate
    4. You’re switched. It’s that easy.
