Business pricing and tariffs

We offer various electricity tariffs for both small to medium business customers and large commercial clients

 

You can think of tariffs as the amount you’re charged for the electricity you use. If your business consumes under 750MWh per annum, then The Northern Territory Government sets electricity prices that we pass on to you.
