How to pay your billHow to pay your bill

You can pick from several payment options such as direct debit, BPAY, Credit Card, phone banking and Centrepay as per your convenience. You can also post your cheque with your payment slip. If you’d rather go yourself to make the payment you can go to any Post Office or an ACTewAGL store to pay by cash, cheque or EFTPOS.

Online accountOnline account

You can register for a digital account with ActewAGL epayplus, which allows you to pay bills, view your payment history and check consumption details.

Rebate schemesRebate schemes

You could be eligible for a number of rebate schemes offered by ActewAGL on behalf of the ACT and NSW governments. Generally, if there is a price rise, the rebates also increase by the percentage increase of the particular service. These rebates mostly cater to people who hold a current Pensioner Concession card, Health Care card or Veterans' Affairs gold card and/or are dependent on life support equipment.


Switching and moving with ActewAGL

You will have the flexibility to move or switch your energy account with ActewAGL. The process is fairly simple, however, you will still need to check on the eligibility criteria for connections in specific regions.

When you are moving your account from one address to another, you can simply fill out an online form giving the details of your existing account and requirements for your new home so your account can be moved accordingly.

If you plan to switch to ActewAGL, you will need to provide personal identification documents such as a copy of your your passport, driver’s license, Medicare card, pension card or credit card. You will also need to give your National Metering Identifier (NMI number), which should be mentioned on your current bill. Once you confirm ActewAGL as your energy supplier, they will notify your current provider and the switch will be arranged for when your meter is due for its next reading. But don’t worry, this does not result in disconnection or interruption to your energy supply.

Overall rating   6 / 10

Pretty much all the same - expensive

I just changed back to ACTEW because it was supposedly cheaper than Australian Energy. However if you miss entering the request to automate payment by the due date, you miss out on the discount.

Excellent, first class customer service and prices

ActewAgl have been very good to our household. They provided me with a much discounted solar installation and a FREE inspection this week. They are local to Canberra and have a very good sales and service record. I will not be moving from them.
