Electricity Cost Pass-through Trial

Electricity Cost Pass-through Trial 

Irrigation customers in selected schemes are participating in a three-year ‘no-one is worse off’ electricity cost pass-through trial, from 1 July 2020 to 30 June 2023.

During the trial, if Sunwater spends less on electricity than it recovers from customers a credit will be applied to eligible irrigation customers’ bills at the end of the financial year.

Further information on this initiative is available in the frequently asked questions below.
