Large business tariffs

Large businesses tariffs are designed to meet the unique energy needs of our large business customers.

Typical customers on tariff 44, 45 or 46 are expected to pay around 10.8 to 13.6 per cent less for their electricity in 2020–21.

Demand tariffs

Most large business tariffs are demand-based, but the way demand charges apply can vary between tariffs.  Generally, it involves a measure of the largest amount of electricity you use at a point in time, during set hours, days or months.

When you choose a demand tariff, your whole business must be connected to that tariff.
