Tsunami Of Rubbish Electricity Bills In Australia

Pig Fly High Over Electricity Retailers In Australia
Power Station Pigs Flying High
Surely not as this is a multi-million dollar industry! Where large electricity retailer's computer systems pump out bills left right and centre, checked periodically by a human for error? 

So how come we are seeing an increasing tsunami of rubbish electricity bills here in Australia? 

It is getting to the point where 'pigs are flying' high over the offices of some electricity retailers. 

It is hard to believe electricity bills sent out to customers are simply to hard for anyone to understand. The electricity retailer not being able to supply answers either, surely makes possible the sight of pink pigskin in the sky, even more feasible! 

If electricity bills in Australia are indeed checked, then how can the average householder make sense of this 24 LINE electricity bill for instance? 


Example Of Rubbish Electricity Bill Australia


As the electricity bill stands it is just a rubbish electricity bill no-one can understand, so why send it out to the householder unchecked?

It is not the time Australian regulators enforce commonsense at least where all electricity bills are SIMPLY & EASY to understand by all concerned?

Android App For Solar Power Monitoring With Net FIT

Solar PV Monitoring App
A fantastic Android app developed here in Australia by Mark McDonald, for the real-time monitoring of total home power consumption and solar power generation, in a net metered environment.

As you most likely know, if you do not have electricity monitoring installed on a net metered solar pv system, then you are operating blind as to what your total consumption is and you only know your import and export, annoyingly in three months time when the electricity bill arrives. Rather late to take action!

Ask yourself how much power have you returned to the grid for six or eight cents? This is not the way to operate and maximise your solar investment, that cost you thousands!

So let us help you pay it off quicker. You make your money with a net metered solar system by reducing imported power, using your own generated power and sending as little back to the grid!

So to know how to do this, you simply need feedback. And monitoring hardware and software gives you this feedback, which thus creates action.

Now there is really NO EXCUSE to not know, if your using more power or exporting it back to the grid for little return.


Get the data you need in your face today and start saving with the feedback of this great little Android app.

Of course if you do not have an Android, or care little for mobile tablets and devices, then we can get the data you need simply in your browser or face via a LCD monitor!

7 Important Facts When Switching Electricity Retailer


OK so you are looking for a better electricity deal? So what do you really NEED TO KNOW to fully understand an electricity retailer's offer?

To make the best and correct choice for your home, you will need to make an educated decision based on certain facts.

So let us look in detail at what these 7 important facts are:

  1. How are you going to be charged for the electricity you use, meaning is the tariff a flat rate, a tiered rate or a Time Of Use TOU rate. Certain tariff types will work better for some homes dependent on when the power is used and the amount of power used.
  2. What are you going to be charged for the electricity you use in cents?
  3. What is the % of discount OFF the usage for paying on time POT? Is the retailer starting with the same network base price? Is there a penalty for paying late other than the loss of the POT discount?
  4. Is there a credit for switching to a market offer such as a two year agreement? Some retailers offer a $100 credit for a two year agreement.
  5. What are you going to be charged for the daily service costs?
  6. Are there any additional transaction fees, such a direct debit or credit card fees.
  7. Are there any other fees such as paper bill fees?

Knowing the above 7 important facts when comparing electricity retailer's offers, will allow you to make an educated decision.

We would further recommend you get the electricity retailer to send you an example bill. Electricity bills differ greatly in Australia, due to a lack of regulation and billing format.

Some electricity bills are simply very difficult for anyone to understand! Even we have issues and disturbingly in some cases so does the electricity retailer's customer support desk!

An electricity bill with no total kWhs or total days on the bill, is surely a good start for a failing electricity billing system. And an electricity bill with twenty-four lines of data is not an easy read either, or one with coding that relates to nothing!

Electricity billing issues such as this are common place, all often discovered during our ELECTRICITY METERING AND BILLING SERVICE.

Taking note of the above 7 important facts when comparing electricity retailer's offer, will help you to make the best choice.

Not forgetting importantly, most electricity retailer's will pay off the other's early termination charges ETC, to get you on board.

Any electricity retailer switch will always involve a special meter read, which at the time of writing costs around $55 in NSW.
