What is a Low user?

Trying to know if you are a Standard User or a Low User requires a little bit of analysis.

It is a common question for Kiwis.  Do I need a standard user power plan or a low user power plan? 

Hopefully this quick explanation can help and will help save you money on your power bill.

 

What is a Low User?

A Low User Power plan is usually for households that will spend much less than $200 per month when averaged across the year.This equates to less than 8000 kW/h.  Most common people in this bracket are 1-3 people households with hot water heated by gas.

What is a Standard User?

A Standard User Power plan is usually for households that spend over $200 per month when averaged across the year.  Again, the threshold for power consumption is at 8000 kW/h (9000 kW/h in the lower South Island).  Most common people in this bracket are 3+ person households with hot water heated by electricity.
