I have very low electricity usage at the specified meter, are there other options?
We have smaller SPS units available for low use properties, however if you don’t need electricity, we won’t install a unit. Instead, we can organise to remove the connection at your request.
If you’re a low-energy use customer and only use your connection once or twice year, or you have low ongoing use, such as to maintain an electric fence or dam pump, you may be eligible for a one-off financial incentive. This is designed to cover the cost of a generator and diesel for those infrequent times when you do require power. We’ll also cover the cost of supply abolishment (permanent connection removal) at these meters.
This incentive is decided on a case-by-case basis. For more information, please call our customer service team on 13 10 87 or email us.
Please note, if you change your mind in the future and would like power back at this location, you’ll need to apply for a new connection and pay the full connection cost for a SPS.
