Incorrect disconnection or delayed reconnection 

If we disconnect your electricity supply incorrectly, we’ll organise a priority re-connection and you could be eligible for a payment of $100 for each day you are disconnected.  

Once you meet the requirements to be reconnected, we need to reconnect your electricity supply within the time-frames specified in our Customer Charter.

If we do not meet these requirements, you could receive a payment of $60 for each day your re-connection is late, up to a maximum of $300.
