As an essential service provider we’re taking our responsibilities very seriously. Our aim is to keep things running as smoothly as possible during this time.

Our office at King St East is open during Level 2 – but due to COVID-19 please make sure you use our hand sanitising station at reception and scan the QR code for contact tracing purposes.


We're keeping you up to date

Changes to the way we work

Our offices and depots are open to the public at Level 2.

We’ve made some other changes to the way we work:

  • If you request a refund we’re no longer able to pay this by cheque and will need a bank account.
  • We encourage customers to pay electronically if possible. Our account details and address are at the bottom of your bill. A list of ways to pay your bill can be found here.

Reading your meter

  • If we need to physically read your meter we will read these at Alert Level 2 (if you don’t have a smart meter).  If you’re vulnerable and would prefer us not to visit, please get in touch.

Customer Meter Read – Smart Meter

Customer Meter Read – Analogue Meter

Our team out in the field

When our staff are called to an outage they will follow the protocol below:

  • All our staff will maintain a high level of hygiene and follow physical distancing at all times
  • If you have an outage at your property we will need to come into your house for testing before reconnecting your power

Thanks for your understanding during this time. Stay safe everyone.

We understand that COVID-19 may impact some customers’ ability to pay their bill on time. If you’re having difficulty paying, or you’re seeking specialised care due to these events, please get in touch so we can understand your situation and discuss options that suit you.
