Each power company has different pricing plans to suit different customers. By knowing what plans are available, you can figure out the best one for you.
What the information is
Power companies are now required to provide their generally available pricing plans to anyone who asks for them. You can then choose the one that suits you.
Pricing plans are created using various pieces of information about the power being delivered and used at your house. Your physical location is important to your pricing plan, as different companies operate in different parts of New Zealand. The type of meter at your house can also change the type of plan you are eligible for.
If you combine your electricity usage information, your meter information and the pricing plans you are eligible for, you can choose which plan is most suited to you.
How to access it
Power companies are required to provide all generally available pricing plans to anyone who asks for them. To request this information, you can contact any power company by phone, email or through their website.
If you have any issues that you are unable to resolve with your power company, you can contact Utilities Disputes Ltd.
What you can do with it
You can compare different pricing plans from different power companies. This will help you to choose which power company has the best pricing plan for your needs.
Once you have your power usage data you will have a personal profile which will help with choosing a pricing plan. You will also need to have your meter information to complete your individual power profile.
