1. Promotional special terms – Guaranteed savings

Effective from 20 August 2021
These special terms apply to any of our customers who became Electric Kiwi customers while this promotion is live (Guaranteed Customers).

Please refer to here for special terms applying to customers became Electric Kiwi customers between 20 August 2020 and 19 August 2021.

To be eligible for Guaranteed Savings for a property, you must provide us with a Prior Bill, the Prior Bill must:

  1. Be either for the same property address or the same account name
  2. Be dated within 60 days of the date Electric Kiwi first starts billing you for electricity used
  3. For a period covering no less than 7 days
  4. Showing the same Low or Standard User plan configuration
  5. Be for a comparable fixed rate plan, we are unable to provide guaranteed savings against spot (wholesale) price plans
  6. Provided within 30 days of the date that Electric Kiwi first starts billing you for electricity used.

If you are a Guaranteed Customer we guarantee that you will save a minimum of $1 during your first continuous year as our customer at the same property (the Guaranteed Period) compared to the cost you would have paid for electricity during that period based on your Prior Bill calculated by us in accordance with clause 1.3.

Your Prior Bill will take into account whether you are a standard or low user. If your previous retailer gave you an invoice discount (including prompt payment discounts), we will include your discount in our calculations, but we do not include any discounts provided for bundled or alternative services including but not limited to dual fuel or broadband discounts. If your previous retailer changes pricing during the Guaranteed Period, we may allocate an adjustment to the Prior Bill to reflect the change by your previous retailer.

If the Prior Bill provided to us by a Guaranteed Customer has multiple consumption (per kWh) rates, we will calculate a single benchmark consumption rate for that Guaranteed Customer based on the consumption weighted averages of these rates.

The Benchmark Pricing Plan calculated by us will include all Electricity Authority levies passed through to the Guaranteed Customer by their previous retailer.

If you are a Guaranteed Customer, we will communicate to you, via the My Account section of our website and via our Mobile App the savings you have made at that point in time during the Guaranteed Period for your electricity consumption by switching to Electric Kiwi, compared to your Prior Bill.

If you are a Guaranteed Customer, at the end of the Guaranteed Period, your savings (when compared to your applicable Prior Bill) are less than $1, we will, subject to clause 1.8, credit your account with the difference between your actual savings and $1. Guaranteed Savings account credit is non-transferable and not redeemable for cash.

We will not be required to make any payments under clause 1.7 if:

  1. we reasonably believe that the rates shown on your Prior Bill are not genuine; or
  2. at the end of the Guaranteed Period, your account is overdue by 30 days or more.

The Guarantee does not apply if you cease to be our customer during the Guaranteed Period.
