Making a claim for electrical contractor fees
If you've investigated issues with a customer's electricity supply which you found to be our fault, you can request that we pay for your services.
If you've already been paid for your services, the customer can make a claim for reimbursement.
Making a claim
We can pay reasonable charges for work done by a licensed electrical contractor if there's been:
- Loss of supply to a customer's hot water system caused by a fault with our equipment 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 a customer's 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.

To help us assess your request, please give us a tax invoice to confirm the type and value of your claim, and include the service order number or fault call number on the invoice.
