So the Electricity Authority has set out to bust some of the myths that are putting people off from shopping around for their power. If all eligible Kiwi households had switched to a cheaper deal last year, they could have collectively saved $281 million or an average annual saving of $162, the authority says. Switching power providers is straightforward. The authority says 90 per cent of New Zealanders who have switched found it to be an easy process. It involves checking whether the current deal is the best one on the website www.whatsmynumber.org.nz, and then clicking through to Consumer NZ’s website www. powerswitch.org.nz to start the switching process. Alternatively once the cheapest provider is established, that retail company will sort the switch over the phone. Choice of the electricity supply depends on the performance of the local distributor and Transpower, the company that operates the national electricity grid. No matter which electricity retailer is chosen, the reliability of supply will be the same. When switching providers, there is no danger of the power being cut off during the process. The only thing that changes is the provider that is sending out the bills. The new retailer takes care of the switching process. Many different electricity retailers offer different payment options to make it easier. Some offer a way to level out all the payments over the year. This can take the sting out of the winter months when power bills tend to increase. Some providers accommodate prepaying so that spending can be more easily controlled. Some allow weekly payments rather than monthly. Payment options can also be discussed with a current provider and should be considered when shopping around. It’s worth checking because retailers are not all the same. There are 29 retail brands operating in New Zealand, with at least seven different brands on offer in every region. All providers offer different deals to suit different people. There are also additional services, loyalty programmes and other rewards to consider. ➤➤ The best deals can be checked online at www. whatsmynumber.org.nz. People can also visit their local Citizens Advice Bureau, where staff members have been trained to use the www.whatsmynumber. org.nz and www.powerswitch. org.nz websites. The Pakuranga Citizens Advice Bureau is at the Library Building, Aylesbury St, Pakuranga, phone 576- 8331 or 0800-367-222; email firstname.lastname@example.org.
