$6.3m of discounts to be provided to consumers

Network Tasman will credit a total of $6.3m to consumers’ April or May power bills. Since the discount scheme’s inception in 1994, consumer ownership and a focus on cost-efficiency has enabled Network Tasman to credit $171 million back to its consumers.


To be eligible for a Network Tasman discount a consumer must have had an active metered connection to our network as at midnight 10 April 2019.

Our network covers the Nelson Tasman region, excluding central Nelson.

Discount rate

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 reported to us by your retailer from 1 September 2018 to 31 March 2019 at your connection. The table below summarises the average discount consumers can expect, based on their annual electricity consumption.

You can find the value of your discount on our website (available from 21 April 2019).


You will need your ICP number, which is typically at or near the top of page 2 of your bill, near your location address. The ICP number has 15 characters and starts with several zeros, e.g. 0000055245NT1G2
