Varsity Towers supplies every resident that books through VT Management (The onsite booking agent) with a fair allocation of electricity. 

  • The fair allocation for 2013 is 4.5kWh for every day stayed at Varsity Towers. 
  • In the event that you are running low on the electricity allocated to you there are several ways to purchase more electricity should the need arise. 
  • All room have the following sign attached to the wall beside the electricity meter located in the kitchen   


This unit comes with a prepaid meter which allows for normal consumption equalling the fair allocation as per www.varsitytowers.com.au multiplied by the number of days of your stay. 

Kindly monitor your consumption and familiarise yourself with the meter’s display An Emergency Reserve of 5KWH has also been Allocated, which should not be consumed unless in the case of Emergency.

Using this Emergency Reserve for any other reason will require PPMA to top it up and will attract a AUD$75.00 Service Fee.

As such, make sure your display never displays below 5kwh. Adhering to this, means that you will never be inconvenienced by running out of power. 

The meter LED will indicate when the power is in use by flashing RED. The display should never display below 5kwh. After monitoring your usage, should you exceed your Normal Consumption, you will need to purchase additional power. 

If you need to purchase a token for additional power it can be done by calling PPMA, tokens can be purchased by either EFT/cash or CC. Prepaid Meters Australia Pty Ltd Account: Bank: St George Bank BSB: 114-879 Account Number: 467037481 Ref: Your 11 digit Meter Number.
