Pricing and plans for your home

We power homes, flats and apartments across New Zealand. Choose us for yours. You’ll enjoy award-winning service and flexible plans from a power company that’s committed to doing good by people and the planet.

Everyday plans

Our everyday plans are a great option, and suit most people. Our most popular plan is the 2 year fixed rate plan. Did you know that if you need to move house before 2 years is up, you can? Just keep your power with Meridian when you move and there will be no break fees, and you get to keep your rates locked in until the end of the fixed rate term.

2 Year fixed rate plan

If you’re looking for peace of mind and stability, our two-year fixed-rate plan is right for you. You’ll pay the same rate for you daily power and usage rates for the length of your plan and won’t be hit with any surprise rate increases.** The sweetener? A $200 welcome credit to get you started.*

Freedom plan

Need more flexibility? Our Freedom Plan has variable rates, you’re not locked into a fixed term contract and there’s also no penalties. This means your power rates will change as energy prices change. You could save money if energy prices drop but, if they rise so will your electricity rates. We’ll sweeten the deal every month with a $10 account credit for the first 12 months when you join today.^

^ Terms, conditions and eligibility criteria apply. If you leave before your first 12 months, you will not be entitled to any remaining account credit.

* Terms, conditions, break fee and eligibility criteria apply.

** Only government and regulatory changes like GST and the Electricity Authority levy can change. Fixed pricing applies when your price category, capacity and metering configuration stays the same and no new network charge is introduced. If any of these changes, and we can no longer offer the plan you are on, we’ll give you prior notice and help you find a new plan. Read the full Terms and Conditions.
