Electricity cost pass-through trial

Electricity cost pass-through trial 

Sunwater is proposing that irrigation customers in selected schemes participate in a three-year ‘no-one is worse off’ electricity cost pass-through trial, from 1 July 2020 to 30 June 2023.

For the three-year trial period, Sunwater’s actual, scheme-level electricity cost savings will be passed through to irrigation customers in eligible schemes at the end of the financial year.

Further information on this initiative is available in the fact sheet below.
