Synergy Midday Saver

What you need to know

By shifting your electricity use to during the cheaper Off Peak or Super Off Peak time periods, you could save on your electricity costs.

As a time of use plan, the Synergy Midday Saver offers three different time periods with different electricity charges for your electricity use, which can result in cost savings if you can shift your use from the Peak time period.

There are three time periods that apply each day:

Smart Home Plan Off- Peak IconSuper Off Peak (9am to 3pm)
You could save by shifting your electricity use to this period.

Smart Home Plan On- Peak Icon Peak (3pm to 9pm)
Avoid or use less energy during this time as it has a higher charge.
Smart Home Plan Weekday Shoulder Off Peak (9pm to 9am)
A large window for electricity use at a rate between the Peak and Super Off Peak.
Item Price inc. GST
Supply charge 120.0000 cents per day
Super Off Peak electricity charge 8.0000 cents per unit
Off Peak electricity charge 22.0000 cents per unit
Peak electricity charge 50.0000 cents per unit

Calculating your cost

The electricity charges during the Super Off Peak and Off Peak time periods on the Synergy Midday Saver are lower than the electricity charge for the standard Synergy Home Plan (A1) (the regulated residential tariff). The electricity charge during the Peak time period on the Synergy Midday Saver is however higher than the electricity charge for the standard Synergy Home Plan (A1) (the regulated residential tariff).

A smart meter or AMI meter records the amount and time of day the electricity is used. The rate applicable during that time period is then charged based on your usage.

The supply charge is the daily fixed charge element of your tariff which applies irrespective of how much electricity you consume.

Meters

To be eligible for the Synergy Midday Saver you will need to have a compatible meter installed or an existing meter reprogrammed. Meter installation and programming charges may apply and are stated above for both existing and new homes.

New Home Meter Prices apply when you are building a new home and electricity is not connected.

Reduce your electricity costs

Make the most of your Midday Saver rates

The Synergy Midday Saver product offers residential customers variable electricity charge rates depending on the time of day electricity is used. This can encourage residential customers to shift their electricity usage from the Peak time period (where the electricity charge rate is higher) to Off Peak and Super Off Peak time periods (where the electricity charge rates are lower).

Residential customers who own an EV may be able to benefit from the product if they choose to charge their EV outside of the Peak period, to take advantage of the Super Off Peak rate between 9am and 3pm or the overnight Off Peak rate from 9pm to 9am.

There are appliances that are easy to use in Off Peak and Super Off Peak time periods. You could wash your clothes in the morning, run your dishwasher after 9pm or the next morning and give your air-conditioning a rest during Peak time periods.
 
You could even have a timer fitted to your electric water heater, reticulation, bore or pool pump to use them during the Super Off Peak or Off Peak time periods. Also, take a quick look at your existing appliances. You might be surprised to find that the washing machine you've been using for years actually has a timer.
