Who looks after the change over?
We do. Changing to UNIONPOWER by Switch Utilities is easy and seamless. We take care of the entire process for you. We contact your current retailer and let them know you’ve decided to join us. They’ll send you a final account and the following month after that you’ll receive your first account from Switch Utilities. Simple and easy, no mess and no fuss.
As a consumer, do I still get my yearly pay-out/dividend (rebate)?
YES. Network rebates often apply when a local network company is owned by a trust. Rebates occur when dividends are paid to the trust, or a refund of line charges is made. Retailers are required to pass on any network rebates to the consumer, if you are eligible for them, in full via your bill.
Who fixes the faults and outages?
Regardless of who sends you the bill, you have a local network company that looks after the local network of power lines and gas delivery. They are responsible for fixing any fault and outage.
Who will read my meter and how often will it be read?
Switch Utilities will arrange for a reputable meter reading company to read your meter. The likelihood is that it’ll be the same company that currently reads your meter. So long as we have access, Switch Utilities will endeavour to read meters monthly.
Who will make my electricity, and where will it come from when I change to Switch Utilities?
When you change to Switch Utilities you’ll be using exactly the same electricity as you do now and it’ll come from exactly the same place as it does now.
How does electricity get from where it’s made to where it’s used?
The entire country from the top of the North Island to the bottom of the South is connected by a network of high voltage power lines called the national grid. It connects all the local networks where people use power, to the power stations that make it.
