Do you always wonder if I have chosen the right power company and have not been over charged? Your questions may be answered here (if you reside in Wellington, New Zealand).

Power costs per day and per month_Oct_2012 shows which company provides the cheapest electricity and natural gas for different amount of kWh used per day or per month. Two look-up tables (one based on daily usage Monthly Power Bill and Annual Saving Lookup Table based on Daily readings and the other based on monthly usage Monthly Power Bill and Annual Saving Lookup Table based on Monthly readings) are provided for you to check:

1. potential monthly bills for different companies and different daily/monthly usage
2. potential saving on bills per YEAR for different companies and different daily/monthly usage

One myth busted for Wellintonians is that Powershop, thought to be the best deal, is actually the 3rd most expensive power company among the other 8 companies, if you use more than 3 kWh per day or 120 kWh per month (average NZer use 7000 kWh per year or 580 kWh per month or 20 kWh per day).
