Using your Power Shout safely

We encourage you to make the most of your free power, but please remember to use it wisely.

  • Make sure you’re not overloading too many appliances into one outlet
  • Keep appliances with cords away from water
  • Ensure appliances aren’t ageing or faulty, or have worn electrical cables
  • Use appliances in the way they were intended to be used
  • Make sure heaters are always attended
  • Take advantage of the timer or thermostat features on heaters
  • Eco Tracker in Energy IQ gives you real-time visibility of NZ's carbon emissions, showcasing which day could be friendlier when using your Power Shout hour
