Fixed or variable pricing?

Fixed rates

With fixed rates you get price certainty for your electricity and network usage by securing your current rate until the end of your contract. Only government and regulatory charges like GST and the Electricity Authority levy can change.

Variable rates

Variable Plan rates are not fixed and can be changed at any time. We provide 30 days notice in accordance with our Standard Terms and Conditions for the Supply of Electricity should Variable Plan rates change. You are not locked into a contract.

You can change from variable pricing to any available fixed pricing at any time.

How does electricity pricing work?

We’re just one of a number of participants in the supply chain that delivers electricity to your home, business or farm.

The amount on your bill is made up of generation cost, transmission & distribution cost, metering cost, Meridian charges, government levies & GST.

Who is eligible for low user rates?

You're eligible for low user rates if you use less than 8000 units a year (less than 9000 units in parts of the lower South Island).

This only applies to your primary residence; you can't have the low user option for other premises on your account, like a holiday home, a sleepout, or a shed.
