Customers of The Power Company Ltd (TPCL) will get a price discount on their power bill again this year.
For the past 20 years, TPCL customers have received a price discount on their power bill. This year it’s to
the value of $9.43million (including GST), spread amongst 36,800 customers in Southland and West Otago.

“It’s a really significant contribution across our communities and we’re proud to be able to do it,” says TPCL chair Doug Fraser.
“Through the price discount, TPCL has put a total $126 million back into the pockets of Southland and West Otago customers since 2001. Winter can be a tough time for many households as they cope with the cost of using more electricity. We’re pleased to be able to provide this price discount as we’ve done for the past 20 years,” Mr Fraser says.

TPCL has consistently been one of the most successful rural electricity networks in New Zealand and this has enabled it once again to deliver a discount to customers.

The directors’ prudent management has allowed us to once again share our company’s success. It’s our way of saying thank you to our shareholding customers, and it also demonstrates our continuing commitment to the community.”

To get the price discount, a customer had to be connected to TPCL’s network on 31 August 2021. The price discount will be credited via their retailer an show up on customers’ September or October power accounts.
