Network Tasman’s Discount is on its way
Network Tasman’s consumers will receive a discount credit on their September or October power bill.
$6m of discounts to be provided to consumers
Network Tasman will credit a total of $6m to consumers September or October power bills. Consumer ownership and a focus on cost efficiency has enabled Network Tasman to credit $165 million of discounts back to consumers in the region since the discount scheme’s inception in 1994.
To be eligible for a Network Tasman discount a consumer must have an active metered connection to our network as at midnight 12 September 2018. Our network covers the Nelson Tasman region, excluding central Nelson.
The discount rate for most residential and small business connections is 2.99c per kWh (GST inclusive).
Your discount will be calculated based on the electricity consumption from 1 April to 31 August 2018 at your connection. An average residential connection using around 7000 kWh per year would receive a discount of $97 (including GST).
Average discounts (including GST)

Network Tasman’s lines charges will decrease from 1 April 2019. This is good news for almost all consumers as it means the average residential customer’s lines charge will fall by $3.50 per month (including GST).
Electric vehicles are attracting a lot of interest in our region and it's great to see the community using the charging stations Network Tasman has installed.
Two new stations to fill up your car are being built in the region but there won’t be a drop of fuel in sight. Rather than the traditional petrol and diesel pumps, the two stations in Takaka and Nelson will be pumping energy.
