Terms and conditions

Toast Electric is New Zealand’s only not-for-profit electricity retailer. We service all households in the Wellington Electricity and Electra Networks (Wellington, Porirua, Hutt Valley, Porirua, Kapiti, Horowhenua).

We offer all our new customers a free in-house home energy check from one of our expert assessors to keep power costs down and create healthy home.

For every three “regular” customers on board, we can support one household on lower incomes. Customers on low incomes can be referred by partner agencies to our Energy Wellbeing programme.

The Energy Wellbeing programme provides lower electricity rates, bill caps and free electricity in winter, and advice/support/free stuff from our assessors and partners. As not-for-profit we have a laser focus on community benefit, social equity and ensuring our lower-income households are not left behind in the carbon and energy transition.

If you have any questions, concerns or complaints about service please email [email protected]. If your complaint isn't resolved, ask Utilities Disputes to consider your complaint.
