Fixed or variable pricing
Fixed Energy pricing
With fixed energy pricing, your Meridian charge each month is fixed for the term of the contract. That charge covers the price of energy and our retail services, such as meter reading, billing and customer support.
All other charges can change. These include network charges, and government or regulatory charges like GST and the Electricity Authority Levy.
Choose fixed energy pricing if:
- you want more certainty than variable pricing to help you budget
- you’re happy to sign up to a contract of up to three years.
For more information, read our Fixed Energy Plan terms and conditions which will apply if you choose a fixed energy plan.
With variable pricing, you have no fixed term contract. We can change rates by giving you 30 days’ notice.
Choose variable pricing if:
- you don’t want to be tied into a contract
- you’re happy for your rates to change (with 30 days’ notice)
You can change from variable pricing to any available fixed pricing at any time.
