According to the chart, if your electricity usage ranges between 1000 – 1700 kWhs per month, this plan might be a good choice. But if you happen to use less electricity and do not qualify for the bill credit, you will be paying a much higher rate for electricity than you expected. It’s as if you’re penalized for not using enough electricity if you use less than 1000 kWh. On the flip side, if your electricity usage spikes in the summer, your electricity rate will too because the more electricity you use, the more diluted that bill credit becomes. With bill credits, there is a usage sweet spot and you need to determine what that is and stay within it in order for this type of plan to be a good deal.
Wouldn’t it be great if the details of electricity plans were easy to understand and you could see an accurate comparison of costs before signing up with a new provider? At Canstar Blue, we like to make sense of the complicated and in this report we show consumers in New South Wales what they are likely to pay with the state’s major energy companies.
I moved into a new, larger apartment this year, during the hottest and longest summer I've spent in Los Angeles. The heat was unyielding, and so was the air conditioning. When my first electric bill came, it soared to heights I didn't even expect. When I looked at common solutions, everything cost money. Solar panels cost a pretty penny and energy-conserving outlets aren't cheap either. While I could measure my energy costs, I'd need to spend a lot of time and money I don't have. I'd also have to significantly reduce the way I used my air conditioning, computers, and appliances. Nothing seemed ideal, so I decided to find out if I could lower my bill simply by using everything more efficiently. I found out that I could, and you can too.

Install a green roof. Many new office buildings in big cities are installing green roofs as insulation to absorb the heat from the sun and keep in warmth during the winter. They also help deflect any excess sunlight that may unnecessarily heat the building on hotter days. Green roofs have an estimated lifespan of 40 years, and it is estimated that an average sized green roof could save the owner over $200,000 in this time.


If you have fans in your house, use them. If you don't, considering installing a few. Fans can go a long way to cooling down a room and take up a lot of less energy than having your air conditioning on full blast. Having fans in your house allows you to program your thermostat up to 4 degrees higher because of the air circulation they provide. Make sure your fans are set to spin counterclockwise at higher speeds to save even more.

Are they going to increase their rates any time soon? Most suppliers keep their rate rises in line with the cost of living but have the ability to change rates with just 28 days notice. Some energy retailers may tell you that they don’t have a cap on their rate rises—if this is the case, then avoid these suppliers, as this signals that they could be looking at increasing their rates in the near future. Always look for affordable electricity options.


In the Northern Hemisphere, while south-facing roofs are typically where solar panels will generate the highest amount of electricity, panels on western-facing roofs will generate the most during peak hours. Because of this, it’s a good idea to talk to your solar installer about the best design for your system so that you maximize your solar savings under your TOU plan.
