Economy tariffs

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

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.
