Standard and low user threshold
If your electricity usage is under 8,000 kWh a year, or under 9,000 kWh a year in parts of the Lower South Island (see the green area on the map), you could benefit from one of our Low User plans. These plans have a lower fixed daily charge, and a higher rate for the electricity used. The rate depends on where you live and the type of meter(s) you have. Low User plans are only available for your primary residence (excludes holiday homes, shearers quarters, etc) and the property cannot be used primarily for commercial, club or society activities.
If you’re unsure of your power usage, your last 12 months’ usage will be shown on your power bill(s). You may also wish to estimate your usage using the quick calculator below.
