Power for irrigation

Irrigation pricing and plans

Don’t worry, you won’t get a one-size-fits-all approach around here. We’ve got a range of options to help you work with the seasons to get the most out of your power. We can work with you to find the plan that suits your hours, locations and power needs for your irrigation.

  • Seasonal rates

    If your irrigation season falls between September and April, let’s chat about our Seasonal Fixed Energy Plan. That gets you the lowest rates when you’re chewing through the most power. We reckon that’s a no-brainer.
  • Day/Night pricing

    Evaporation and transpiration add to the cost of irrigation. So, if you’re making the most of night pumping hours, consider Day/Night pricing too, as a way of reducing your costs even further. If you're irrigating on a 24-hour cycle, Any time pricing’s best for you.
  • Time of use

    If you’ve got a large irrigation system, we can look at Time of Use pricing for you. It can offer some advantages in terms of scale and flexibility.

Don't just take our word for it

“We’re yet to come across another power company with dedicated agri managers that will understand your business as well as Meridian does. It’s not all about price, it’s about relationships too. And Meridian is a hands down winner on both.”
Michelle and Leighton Pye - South Canterbury farmers
