Great company

I was with AGL but my pay on time rebate is far better with Alinta. I still need a new supplier for gas.

Similar to electricity, the current system they use for pricing gas makes no sense to me since all other must have forms of energy use an opposite model. However I am sure the public do not care about this and thus the industry ends up getting paid three times as much as they should.
