Natural gas query

DISCLAIMER: Letters to the editor are very welcome, but please note that these reflect the views of the individual writer, not those of Grey Power.

I am concerned about the daily fixed rate for my Rinnai gas connection.  This is for hot water only.

I live in a Haumaru housing village. My daily fixed rate for power through Frank Energy is 30c daily, whereas for the natural gas it is 10.9c daily. This means for a month I am paying $30+ before even being charged for usage.

Do you happen to know if there is a subsidy available for pensioners?

Frank Energy say that’s what they are charged and have to pass it on. Haumaru housing have no subsidy.

There is no hot water cylinder so I can’t convert to power for the hot water.
