Aurora Energy announces price hike for all Otago customers, highest in Central Otago and Wānaka

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from Otago News

Aurora Energy’s customers in Central Otago and Wānaka will face significantly higher line charge increases than their Dunedin counterparts.

For a standard residential household, the lines component of monthly power bills will rise by $4.94 in Dunedin from April 1, a company statement said. They will go up by $9.19 in Central Otago and Wānaka, and by $6.20 in Queenstown.

The higher prices in Central Otago and Wānaka reflect the higher cost per customer of supplying power to parts of the network with fewer people but with many infrastructure assets, the company says.
