If a new meter is required at your premises to change to an economy tariff, you may be charged an upfront meter charge by your electricity retailer. This charge will appear on your next electricity bill after the new meter has been installed.
If your cashback reward claim is approved, we will send you a cheque for the meter costs. You should receive this payment in approximately 20 business days after you receive your cashback payment.
