Seasonal daily use tariffs
Tariff 15 is a seasonal daily usage tariff, developed for potential use under trial conditions and is not available on request.
It offers a choice of five daily usage bands, which range from 0 kWh to 20 kWh. Each usage band provides a threshold on daily usage within the peak period, from 4pm to 9pm daily from November to March.
You pay for all electricity usage at a flat rate and a monthly supply charge which aligns with your choice of usage band.
If you exceed your peak period usage band threshold on any day during November to March, a surcharge is applied for the difference between your band threshold and your highest day's actual peak period usage. All rates include GST.
For example on Band 2, if you used 7 kWh during the peak period on one day during the month, you would pay the surcharge on 2 kWh, which is the difference between 7 kWh and your band threshold of 5 kWh. If you used 7 kWh on one day and 8 kWh on another day during the peak period in the same month, you would pay the surcharge on 3 kWh, which is the difference between your highest day's peak period usage 8 kWh and your band threshold of 5 kWh.
You must remain on your selected usage band for at least 12 months before you can change to a lower usage band. Moves to a higher usage band are permitted at any time.
Peak period: 4pm-9pm daily, Nov-Mar.
