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 are 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.
