A message from Marlborough Lines

Ian Allen Reporter from Marlborough Express

Marlborough Lines Limited (MLL) owns and operates the
electricity distribution network which connects over 26,000 homes and businesses across Marlborough.
Recognising that Marlborough businesses and consumers may be financially impacted from the COVID-19 pandemic, MLL will bring forward (partially) the March 2021 annual discount payment for
eligible consumers.
The amount of the discount payment for each eligible consumer
will vary depending on:
• the electricity consumer type; and
• the amount of electricity consumed and the days of connection between 1 February and 31 July 2020 (six months).
For an ‘average’ domestic consumer, a payment of approximately $117 (incl. GST) will be made.
The discount payment will be made to electricity retailers on 28 August 2020. A line item showing the MLL discount payment should be included on consumers monthly electricity invoices after that date.
The previously planned annual payment for March 2021 will be deferred to May 2021, and, will now be based on electricity consumed between 1 August 2020 and 31 March 2021 (eight months). Annual discount payments will then be made in May of each year thereafter.
