Domestic Customers


Rimfire Energy is an electricity retailer operating in the Northern Territory.

We sell electricity to eligible customers in the grid-connected regions of Darwin, Katherine, Tennant Creek and Alice Springs and we are currently considering applications from eligible Domestic business customers in all regions.

Are You a Domestic Customer?

We will consider you to be a Domestic customer if the premise is used for domestic purposes on residential premises and has annual electricity usage of less than 750 MWh p.a..

This does not include hostels, motels, guest houses or caravan parks or premises where a caretaker resides which are otherwise used for non-residential purposes.


In order to be able to choose your electricity retailer and become a Rimfire Energy customer, you must have an eligible "smart meter" installed at the premises, also referred to as a remote-read interval meter.

If you currently have a prepayment meter, have an older style "spinning-disc" analogue electricity meter, and/or have a meter-reader come to your property to physically read the meter, then it is unlikely that you will currently have a remote-read interval meter installed.

If you don't currently have an eligible "smart meter" installed at the premises, we can help you to arrange to swap over your electricity meter. The costs associated with upgrading your meter are levied by PowerWater as the network service provider and these costs are generally passed on to you as the customer.

Please refer to our Product & Price Sheet for more information about smart meter upgrades.

If you are interested in becoming a Rimfire Energy customer, then once we find out what type of electricity meter you have installed, we can discuss your options with you for upgrading your meter.
