Economy tariffs

Economy tariffs are great for appliances like hot water systems and pool pumps that don't need a constant supply of power.

They're cheaper because the supply on these tariffs is interruptible and Ergon Network controls the times when power is available. The times of day this will occur may change from day to day and vary in duration.

Tariff 31 

This tariff is for electric hot water systems holding 250 litres or more, that only need to reheat at night. Power is available for a minimum of 8 hours each day. The times when power is switched off may change from day to day and vary in duration. All rates include GST.
