Network Tasman's discount is on its way
Network Tasman's consumers will receive a discount or credit on their April or May power bill.
$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.
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

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.
