Fixed rate plan
Choose a fixed rate plan if:
- you want some certainty to help you budget, even if it means you pay a bit more now than you would on variable pricing
- you’re happy to sign up to a contract of up to three years. (You can break the contract for an early exit fee of $100, and you won’t be charged if you’re just moving.)
You just need to know that if any government or regulatory charges change, we may pass those changes on to you. For more information, read our Fixed Rate Plan terms and conditions which will apply if you choose a fixed rate plan.
How fixed rate pricing works
With fixed rate pricing, your Meridian charge and network charge each month is fixed for the term of the contract. The Meridian charges cover the price of energy, and our retail services like meter reading, billing and customer support. Only government and regulatory charges like GST, and the Electricity Authority levy can change.
Choose variable pricing if:
You can change from variable pricing to any available fixed pricing at any time.
How variable pricing works
With variable pricing, you have no fixed term contract. We can change rates by giving you 30 days’ notice.
Discounts for prompt payment
On all our plans, you’ll get a discount if you pay on time and in full.
