domestic supply controlled off-peak, for a domestic supply customer, means a supply that is periodically switched on and off for load control reasons by time switch controls located in the customer’s residence switchboard.

fee means a fee payable by a customer for electricity supply or another related service at the rate mentioned in this Determination for the supply or service.

general supply means a supply of electricity to a customer that is not:

                (a)    a domestic supply; or

               (b)    an 11kV time-of-use demand supply; or

                (c)    a LV industrial supply.

general supply controlled off-peak, for a general supply customer, means a supply that is periodically switched on and off for load control reasons by time switch controls located in the customer’s premises switchboard.

GST has the meaning given by section 195-1 of the A New Tax System (Goods and Services Tax) Act 1999.

8              LV industrial supply

         (3)   If a supply of electricity is disconnected under subsection (2), the customer must not be reconnected until the customer pays the outstanding amount of the electricity fees and any fees payable under subsections (1) and (2).

11            Refund of security deposit

         (1)   This section applies if:
