Boost your savings with the
Hour of Power

Electric Kiwi has a smart way to help you save even more money. We call it the Hour of Power.

It's simple really, you choose 60 minutes of off-peak power that suits your lifestyle. All electricity used during that hour is free each day!

When is my power off-peak?

The off-peak time slots are between 9am-5pm and 9pm-7am every day.

Use an Hour of Power for free between these off-peak times.

What do I need to know?

  • You can update your Hour of Power at any time.
  • Your free timeslot will remain the same until you decide to choose a new one.
  • Any change before midnight will be active for that day.
