Not happy Jan.

Well they promised the earth, but delivered me into hell. I now have gotten a mark on my credit score, thanks very much. There was nothing I could do about it. Beware of the fake promises. Ensure that you have got all of your documents in a readable format. I would advise you to record your conversation(s) with them. My bill ended up being tripled.

I wouldn't go elsewhere, I trust origin.

I feel the bills are large but not so much since we got solar panels. It's a struggle to pay. But thankfully I can call them if I having difficulties, they're good that way.

Cheaper option as good as any other ripp off

Power is expensive although not as bad as most, but all suppliers are grossly over charging and double dipping with supply charges. We pay for power that they supply that is metered then they add further charges and call it daily supply charge paying twice for the same service. It would be like a phone company charging you $80 a month for you to use unlimited internet but add charges of $1.15 a day to provide it. Thank God they don't have the nerve to do it. In my opinion this is basically extortion because if you don't agree to pay for a service twice your power is cut off. Don't know why the ACCC has not reviewed whether this should be allowed.

Rooftop solar

Rooftop solar welcomed in record numbers thanks to rebates and interest free loans

As more households embrace renewable energy, new figures have revealed that solar photovoltaic (PV) systems are being installed at record numbers across the country. According to the ACT Government’s 2019/20 annual feed-in tariff report, there are more than 28,000 solar generators in the Territory, an increase of more than 17% during the previous financial year. What’s more impressive is that rooftop solar within the ACT has produced more than 135 megawatts during the 2019/20 financial year. Plus, more than 47,000 MWh came from over 10,000 solar PVs that were provided by the ACT Government’s Feed-In Tariff (FiT) scheme, an incentive from 2009 that was designed to boost solar uptake and reduce solar system prices altogether.  “It’s great to see incentives like these are giving the average household the opportunity to generate their own electricity and save on their energy bills,” said Mozo Director, Kirsty Lamont.

Energy price updates

Victoria energy price update who s cutting prices in 2021

With a sudden strict four month lockdown it’s safe to say Victorians haven’t had an easy 2020. But with the Essential Services Commission (ESC) announcing its final energy prices determination for 2021, the new year may already be off to a better start. The ESC has announced that the Victorian Default Offer (VDO) will fall by 10% for residential customers and 14% for small businesses customers. That equates to a bill reduction of $159 per year and $916 a year, respectively.As a quick recap, the VDO, which came into effect 1 July 2019, is a default energy offer available to all customers in Victoria who choose to not engage in the energy market - that is, comparing offers and switching plans. The VDO also replaced standing offers and capped prices, preventing retailers from charging expensive plans to customers on these offers. “The fall in the default offer is being mainly driven by lower wholesale electricity purchase costs, with lower prices likely to assist many Victorian households and small businesses in recovering from the impacts of the coronavirus pandemic,” said Essential Services Commission pricing director, Marcus Crudden.The state’s economic regulator estimates that these price reductions will provide some much needed bill relief to around 125,000 households and 40,000 small businesses.

Energy myths

Articles

From rates to tariffs and random fees, it’s no wonder energy bills have a reputation of being difficult to comprehend. Unfortunately, it often means many Aussies pick up a few myths on the way to understanding their energy bill. So, if one of your goals in the new year is to get on top of your personal finance, we’ve jotted down four energy bill myths to be aware of.

Energy new year

The new year s resolution that could help you save big on energy bills

With less than three weeks to go until we welcome in the new year, many Aussies may have already begun thinking about the goals they want to achieve in 2021. And for some, that can mean giving their home an energy efficiency upgrade. According to CSIRO building simulation research lead, Anthony Wright, the average Aussie household is rated only 2.2 stars out of 10 for energy efficiency. However, if the average Sydney or Melbourne home were to bump that figure up to a 4.9 stars, they could save up to $480 a year on their energy bills.When it comes to improving energy efficiency around the house, you might be surprised to learn that substantial savings can be made just by making small improvements. For instance, draught sealing and filling gaps or cracks around windows and doors are a great place to start. Other options include updating energy guzzling appliances for energy saving ones or installing external blinds to block out heat. But for the Aussies who don’t mind taking things to the next level, upgrading hot water systems, air conditioning and other appliances could deliver annual savings of $900, says Wright. “It’s also worthwhile getting an energy rate involved early,” Wright said in a recent interview with The New Daily. “It can seem like it costs, but it will pay back in comfort and energy bill savings in spades over time, as they can do a before-and-after rating, and also provide consultation on tweaking your renovation as you go.”

Energy debt

Many households and small businesses still battling energy debt

When Australia officially entered lockdown in March, thousands of people and small businesses were left stranded with a reduced income or forced to shut down, struggling to keep up with regular expenses, like their energy bill.  And according to the Australian Energy Regulator’s (AER) Annual Retail Markets Report, those households and small businesses still remain in ‘energy debt’ to their retailers. The report found a sharp increase in energy debt amongst small businesses, with the total jumping from $35 million in March 2020 to $45 million in June 2020. For residential customers, long-term electricity debt reportedly increased by 21% between 31 March and 2 November to $124.5 million. Almost 60,000 households also took advantage of their retailers' offer to defer energy bills for a time, providing some breathing room. “If you are struggling to pay your bills, talk to your retailer about your debt – even if you can’t afford to pay anything right now,” said AER chair, Clare Savage. “You won’t be disconnected, and your retailer will work with you to set up a plan and help you start paying off your debt.”And it looks like most Aussies were satisfied with their retailer’s support, as there were 29% fewer complaints made to retailers and 26% fewer complaints to the ombudsman since the 2018/19 financial year.
