Mains Power Upgrade
Why would I need to have my mains power upgraded?
There are a number of reasons you would want your mains power upgraded, including the installation of ducted air conditioning, the use of large equipment such as printing presses or high-end audiovisual equipment, the addition of a new block or wing to a building or the renovation of an older building.
A mains power upgrade will provide you with a consistent, reliable and quantifiable power source. Any mains power upgrade should be installed by a qualified electrician, as it is illegal in Queensland for anyone else to carry out electrical work of this nature. Not only is it dangerous, but because it is illegal you risk voiding your insurance and making the premises harder to sell.
If you have high drain devices or sensitive electrical equipment that you want to protect then you should get a mains power upgrade installed to ensure you have all the power you want, and no more. There is no point in risking your expensive equipment or having to work with underpowered gear, book an upgrade today and our team will ensure that your power supply is adequate and safe.What is Tariff 33?
What is Tariff 33?
Tariff 33 is known as the economy tariff and is best suited to water heaters and pool pumps. Tariff 33 is up to 40% less expensive than the regular domestic tariff. According to Energex, the electricity network provider in South-East Queensland, Tariff 33 is available for a minimum of 18 hours per day.
The times of supply for Tariff 33 are completely up to the network providers (Energex or Ergon) but it is most likely that Tariff 33 will be switched off between the peak hours of:
- 4-9pm at night.
- 6-9am in the morning.
As you can see there is plenty of time to run your pool pump and hot water system outside of these hours.
It is important to remember that the times of supply are at the network providerâ€™s discretion. On some days electricity supply may not be turned off at all.
What is Tariff 31?
Tariff 31 is known as the Super Economy Plan and is the cheapest off-peak tariff available for water heating. This tariff is about 59% cheaper than your normal domestic tariff.
However, tariff 31 is only available at low electricity-demand periods, such as at night when generators would otherwise be idle.
Electricity supply is made available for a minimum of eight hours per day at times set by the network owner (Energex or Ergon, depending on where you live) at their discretion.
In most cases Tariff 31 will be available between the hours of 10pm and 7am . On some days electricity supply may not be turned off.
Tariff 31 is best suited to water heaters and can be a great way to reduce your power bill.
