Your electricity bill is made up of:

Daily Fixed Charge

This is a cents/day charge covering the fixed cost of your energy supply from the network or lines company plus a cost for metering and billing.

Variable Charge

This is a cents/kWh charge for the cost of the amount of electricity you use. It covers the cost of generating, transmitting and distributing the electricity to your home. This rate also includes the variable Electricity Authority levies.

The variable rates available are dependent on your wiring and meter setup. Some variable rates are not applicable in your network area. If you wish to change your meter arrangements, a charge may apply.

Important Notes:

  • Prices exclude Prompt Payment Discount and GST.
  • kWh = Kilowatt hour, 1 kWh = 1 unit of electricity.
  • The Daily Fixed Charge applies to each separately metered supply point.
  • Fixed Charges which are specific to your property may apply; these are in addition to the above prices.
  • Prices reflected above are for standard single-phase residential connections. If your property is connected via anything other than a standard single phase residential supply you may be charged different rates and should contact us so we can confirm appropriate pricing.
  • Genesis Energy's credit criteria and standard terms and conditions for the supply of energy apply.
  • Prices effective from 15 January 2017. Prices are subject to change.
