COVID-19 Updates

In these unsettling and unprecedented times, we want to assure you that Electric Kiwi is continuing as normal.

We know that the current situation may be causing disruption or concerns. If you are having difficulty with your electricity account due to the impacts of COVID-19, please reach out to us for assistance.

We're still online

As a digital retailer, we are now all working from home and have experienced minimal business interruption.

So, if you have any questions for us, please jump on live chat 8am – 10pm business days.

Can I still switch to Electric Kiwi?

Yes. Customers can still switch power companies. Switches will go through exactly as they usually do.

Your power supply will not go off during a switch.

Make the most of your Hour of Power

If you are at home you might be using a bit more power than usual. We encourage you to take advantage of your free Hour of Power. Remember the off-peak time slots are between 9am - 5pm and 9pm - 7am every day.

For hints on how to make the most of your free hour see our blog article on mastering your hour of power.

Flexible billing

Another benefit of Electric Kiwi that might be helpful during this time is our flexible billing.

You can set your bills to be weekly, fortnightly or monthly in the App or My account, and you can also pay in advance with our Stay Ahead option.

What support is available?

Current customers experiencing financial difficulties due to the impacts COVID-19 can access a variety of assistance options.

The Citizens Advice Bureau is a great place to start. This organisation offers free advice on the assistance you could be entitled to and who can help.

The government has also recently launched additional support through Work and Income. It's worth noting that some of their support options do not require you to be a client with them.

We are closely monitoring the situation so we can help our customers to access the available assistance.
