Network Tasman is a consumer-owned electricity distributor

The company has been providing network discounts to its consumers since 1994. The amount of discount each consumer receives depends on their electricity usage. The discounts appear as a credit on eligible consumers’ power accounts.


The next discount provided by Network Tasman will be credited on the power bill you receive from your electricity retailer late September 2021. It will be based on your electricity usage from 01 April 2021 to 31 August 2021.


To be eligible for a line charge discount a consumer must have an active, metered connection to the network as at midnight on a specific day. The relevant eligibility dates for our next two discount payments are specified below:

  • Spring 2021 – Monday 13 September 2021
  • Autumn 2022 - Monday 25 April 2022


Any of the following circumstances will exclude a consumer from receiving 
the discount: 

  • The meters have been removed prior to midnight on the respective cut-off dates
  • The consumer’s connection has been disconnected or is vacant or inactive on
the registry prior to the respective cut-off dates
  • The consumer’s connection has temporary boxes or unmetered connections such as streetlights or electric fences
  • The consumer has had a final reading or requested a final reading to be taken on or before midnight on the respective cut-off date.

Find Your Line Charge Discount

Discounts are calculated at a rate per kilowatt hour (kWh) as per our pricing schedule.

Discounts will vary between consumers because of consumers' different levels of electricity consumption.
