The draw will take place at the Alinta Energy offices unless the offices are not able to be accessed on the date of the draw to COVID-19.

10. Subject to Clause 11, the first valid entry drawn per state (NSW, SA, QLD and VIC) will receive a credit applied to the residential Alinta Energy electricity account with the account number and for the supply address that was submitted on that entry form (Winning Account) for up to their next four (4) consecutive electricity bills, provided that the total credit across the four (4) consecutive electricity bills does not exceed $2,500 (including GST) (Prize).

The Promoter reserves the right, at any time, to request proof of the validity of entries and Eligible Entrants (including an entrant’s identity, age, place of residence or relationship to an employee of the Promoter) to claim a Prize and to disqualify any entrant who submits an entry form that is not in accordance with these Terms and Conditions or who tampers with the entry process. Errors and omissions may be accepted at the Promoter's discretion. Failure by the Promoter to enforce any of its rights at any stage does not constitute a waiver of those rights.

15. The Promoter will endeavour to notify the winner by telephone within 2 weeks of the draw. The Promoter accepts no responsibility for failure to notify a winner if that winner is not reasonably contactable. The Prize must be claimed within 30 days of the Draw.
