Special Assistance Allowance

This is a special electricity rate that will be applied to the electricity bill of the approved recipient. Anyone who uses certain medical devices (life support equipment) because of a medical condition, may qualify for this assistance. Total electricity consumed by the approved life-support equipment, per month, that will be deducted from the total consumption of the associated power connection. The consumption by the life support equipment will be metered separately using a TAU supplied and approved meter.

To qualify, the customer must complete a ‘Special Assistance Allowance’ application form. The form must also be completed by their physician (MD only) and the customer must reside in a house that has a domestic power connection with TAU. If approved, a special electricity rate will be applied to the electricity bill of the approved recipient or customer. As a good corporate citizen, Te Aponga Uira (TAU) recognises the responsibility that extends beyond that of generating and retailing electricity on Rarotonga.
