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.
