ERGON Energy is offering residential customers two cashback incentives to connect their pool pump or hot water system to an economy tariff.
"The cost of running the pool pump can add up, so we're offering up to $250 cashback for customers to connect their pool pump to Tariff 33," said Ergon's Energy Conservation and Demand Management group manager David Heberlein.
Ergon is also offering up to $100 cash back for customers to connect their hot water systems to either Tariff 31 or Tariff 33.
"Compared with the cost of running their pool pump or hot water system on Tariff 11, customers could save up to 30% with Tariff 33," Mr Heberlein said.
"Plus, with no minimum monthly fee on Tariff 31 or 33, customers will only pay for what they use."
The cashback offers are available to help customers with the cost of getting a licensed electrician to make the tariff changes.
The offers are also designed to increase the number of pool pumps and hot water systems connected to an economy tariff and help reduce the demand for electricity during peak times.
Tariff 33 is available for a minimum of 18 hours a day, usually outside the morning and evening peak periods.
Tariff 31, which is the most economical tariff available, provides power supply for a minimum of eight hours during the night, usually between 10pm and 7am.
Residential customers are urged to speak with their electrician about the best option for their household and make sure their pool pump or hot water system is suitable for connection to an economy tariff.
