Can I get my electricity stopped?
If you are going overseas, you can turn off your main switch to stop your electricity. You will still be charged a daily fixed charge, but you should be using zero consumption. Just remember to turn it on when you get back!

Why do I pay so much for my bach when it’s empty?
Most baches would generally be low users as they are not used all year round, however only primary residences can be on a Low User plan. This means that your bach will be on a Standard User plan, giving you a higher daily rate and a slightly lower rate for each unit of electricity you use.
Every electricity company in New Zealand must adhere to this regulation. To find out more about Standard and Low User plans click here.
