Additional Fees

In some instances, ReAmped Energy may need to charge additional fees to your electricity account. In most cases, these are transaction fees. However, in certain circumstances we will make a request on your behalf for a service to be performed by your network distributor or a metering provider. (These are the utilities who own and maintain the physical meter at your property and the poles and wires that connect your property to the grid.) You will be kept informed of any additional fees.

Please note

  • Fees will be updated from time to time
  • Fees are inclusive of GST
  • Fees apply to residential customers
  • If non-standard work is required, a non-standard fee may apply

Please ensure the utility workers have unrestricted access to complete a service you have requested (for example keeping access gates unlocked and your dog secured or away from your meter). If you fail to provide proper access, you may be required to pay the fee for the service requested.

If a government regulator or distributor changes or introduces a new fee, charge, or tax, we may pass part or all of the difference on to you. The charges for network-related services may include our reasonable costs for arranging such services.

To confirm network charges visit your local electricity distributor’s website:

Metering fees

In December 2017, the Power of Choice (PoC) rule determined that electricity retailers (i.e. ReAmped) are responsible for managing customer metering. In most cases, this change incurs no additional fees for our customers. However, in some scenarios, additional fees may apply. If you have any questions regarding metering fees that may apply to you, please contact us.
