Why Has Meridian Increased Prices?

Energy retailers must regularly review the costs of the electricity supply chain. There are many different parts of the electricity supply chain that require maintenance and upgrading such as towers, power stations, lines, and poles. As inflation rises, these costs change, which is why energy retailers adjust their prices accordingly.

Meridian energy prices have increased in April 2024.

Meridian’s fixed term plan has an anytime rate of $0.2372 per kWh.* This is about 6% higher than last year for most consumers. 

If you have noticed your power bill increasing recently, there is good news – you can still save money on it. One way to lower your power bill is to reduce the amount of energy you use. This is great for the environment and for your wallet! One way to reduce your power consumption is to use energy efficient appliances. If you are in the market for a new household appliance such as a washing machine, fridge, or air conditioner, it’s always a good idea to choose one that has a high energy star rating. This means that the unit will use the least amount of energy possible to perform the same task.
