Controlled Load 2 on bill - leave as is or request disconnection

Switched-on

We moved in to property 4 years ago solar panels were installed and an external heat pump, described as a solar heat pump by the company in question.

 

I noticed initially that the controlled load meter never increments - this is borne out by the 1/4ly bill. We do though receive a CL2 Supply charge which makes sense.

 

Several years on the CL2 situation is unchanged. The meter has never incremented.

 

My assumption is that the hot water we use is catered for entirely by the solar panels, and the CL2 option is therefore never required. Only two of us here presently.

 

Should I request that the CL2 supply is terminated? Will this require work on the meter box or just someone "throwing a switch centrally". The CL2 supply charge is approx. $16-17/pa. 

 

PS I recall asking a similar question on this topic some years ago but can't seem to locate it now.
