When you use a service we will charge the fee to your Powershop account. This schedule of fees will be updated from time to time. 

Please note that these are standard service fees. Where additional work is required by an electrician or your network company, or you live in a lifestyle, rural, or remote area, this could involve an additional fee. We may on-charge to you any fees we receive from a network company or other third party in relation to work performed at your request or work required because you have not complied with your obligations. All other fees will be provided on application.

It is important that you provide access to complete the service you have requested. If you fail to meet an arranged appointment or provide access, you will still have to pay the fee for the service requested.

Please call the Powershop Crew 0800 IN CONTROL (0800 462 668) if you have any questions or would like more information on these fees.
