How much power does a low user use?

You’re a low user if:

  • you use less than 8000 kWh of power per year; or
  • you use less than 9000 kWh per year if you live in all areas south of and including Christchurch, but excluding the West Coast; and
  • your property is where you live most of the time (your primary place of residence).

Powershop regularly reviews whether you are on the correct pricing for your usage and will put you on the best option for your situation. We’ll also let you know every year on your Powershop anniversary how much power you’ve used and what the best rate option is for you.
