The "What's My Number" website is provided by the Electricity Authority with the assistance and support of Consumer New Zealand.
The "What's My Number" website calculator is brought to you by Consumer Powerswitch.
The Electricity Authority hopes this website will help you make better-informed decisions about the process for switching electricity accounts, and any possible savings.
The information and calculators on this website should not be your only source of information when you are considering whether to switch accounts. Use the website as a starting point and then seek professional advice if you need to.
The savings calculator provides indicative information only. The results produced by the calculator are based on the stated assumptions about electricity usage and the information you supply about your current electricity retailer in the region where you live. You should treat the results as a guide only.
The estimated savings figure is the difference between your current retailer and the cheapest retailer available in your area. The calculation assumes that you are currently on the cheapest plan available from your retailer. The number is an estimated annual savings figure. To get a more accurate idea of your potential savings on both gas and electricity, and the best options for providers in your area, go to Consumer Powerswitch.
If you are selecting a dual fuel retailer, one that provides both gas and electricity, the estimated cost is arrived at by calculating the cheapest annual cost of electricity and gas with your current retailer and showing the difference between this and the cheapest retailer on offer. If you are looking for the best deal on both gas and electricity, go to Consumer Powerswitch to find it.
The 'counter' on the website shows the number of times the website calculator has been used and the sum of all calculations made. This may be different from the actual savings achieved as a result of switching. This is a dynamic number and will change over the life of the website. The 'counter' includes all calculations made; including if someone uses the calculator more than once.
The Authority encourages consumers to regularly check their potential savings number.
