Customer Charter

Jacana Energy's Customer Charter provides you with important information about your rights, as well as your obligations as a customer.

There are three good reasons to have a Customer Charter:

  1. To set service standards.
  2. To let you know what you can expect.
  3. To serve you better.

By requesting services from us you consent to us managing your personal information as outlined in our privacy policy on our internet site. You are able to request access, at any time, to view and update the personal information which we hold about you.

Give us feedback

If you think our service has not met our published standards then we need to know. Our Customer Service Officers will listen carefully and respond promptly to your feedback. When a Customer Service Officer can not provide an immediate answer to your inquiry they will call you back with more information as soon as possible. We value your feedback and will make every effort to address your concerns.

Your responsibilities

Access to your meter

Your network provider, Power and Water Corporation, needs safe access to your meter.

  • You need to keep meter access free from obstruction such as locked gates, barriers, overgrown vegetation and dangerous animals.
  • If the network provider is unable to gain access, we may require you to remove the obstruction or have the meter relocated.
