4 people, solar hot water, everything else is electric

bill is for a three month period but the previous bill was an estimate based on the 3 months prior to that. The 3 months prior to that the house was empty for half of the time so the estimate was low (about $200). This bill is an actual reading, and has corrected any shortage in charges caused by the 'estimate''. If you take both bills into account, it works out at $800 for 6 months, which sounds much more reasonable.

I'm still not happy with it though. With solar hot water I expected it to be less than my bills at the old place (about $400 for every 3 month period). This works out at about the same.

I checked around a while back. There is a useful .com.au site that compares the different providers.


I am happy with my current provider … I intend to stay on my current option as long as poss. I have far outpaced the end date of my contract, so I am basically on what I am on, and they can't change it. Well, perhaps they can, but have chosen not to. Who knows ?? They need my approval.? :roll
