Seasonal rates

Depending on when you use electricity you can choose between year-round or seasonal rates for your farm. 

  • Seasonal rates may suit summer milking dairy farmers, irrigators and some horticulturalists.
  • Year-round rates might be better for sheep and beef farmers.

Our fixed seasonal rates give you lower summer rates from 1 September to 30 April as shown below.

This graph illustrates consumption and Meridian seasonal rates only. Your actual consumption and the rates charged to you will vary. The graph has been based on a single agribusiness customer's installation control point in the Waitaki region.

Rates that change during the day

You can also decide if you want rates that vary within a day, such as a DayNight rate that has lower night rates.

  • DayNight rates often suit irrigators and early morning milkers.
  • An Anytime rate may be better for sheep and beef farmers.
