Important information

Claims for loss or damage

As a general guide we're unable to pay compensation for any loss or damage caused by events outside our control. However, we recognise our responsibilities and will consider compensation for acts or omissions where we're obliged to do so.

Claims for Electrical Contractor fees

We'll pay reasonable charges for work done by a licensed electrical contractor if there's been:

  • Loss of supply to your hot water system caused by a fault with our equipment (bridging relay) that supplies power to the hot water system. You need to let us know as soon as possible about the fault and get a service order number.
  • Loss of supply to your home caused by a fault in our electricity distribution network. You need to let us know as soon as possible about the fault and get a fault call number.

We can reimburse for work that directly relates to an Ergon Energy fault. Reasonable charges include a standard call out fee and, where applicable, standard hourly rates for work completed.

Please take care when entering your email address as you won’t receive the validation email if the address is entered incorrectly.

What address details are required?

As much information that can be provided including a Lot, Plan (including RP or SP), street number, street name, suburb and if available pole/pillar number.  This will assist in fast tracking your Connect Application.

What is the NMI?

NMI stands for National Metering Identifier. It is a unique 10 or 11 digit number used to identify every electricity network connection point in Australia. Every connection to the national electricity network is given its own NMI.

Where do I find my NMI?

You can find your NMI on your electricity bill. If you don’t have an electricity bill handy, you can search for the applicable address in Customer Self Service to identify the NMI. If a new NMI is required, you can enter the address manually, ensuring you include as much information as possible.
