The cost of my electricity bill has been cut significantly since changing to Alinta. The only requirement is to ensure that you pay your bill on the due date. If you do not pay on time then your bill is considerably more. Pros: Bill discount - great value Cons: Must pay full amount of bill on the due date.
I switched from another provider to alinta because i was offered a better deal. at a later date i was accosted by another provider who thought alinta's deal could be better, so I agreed to proceed. Then it was discovered that the other provider could not better Alinta's deal, so I stayed with them. As i've not needed to have any other contact, because there have been no problems, i have no complaints or criticisms. However, I continue to check that our bill has not suddenly rocketed above what I signed up for. On being green, I am a heretic. i believe that completely eliminating coal & aiming at net zero will result in serious interruptions to our supply. by all means experiment with other ways (though i think wind turbines have already been proven inefficient & even a health hazard, but who would dare voice an opinion in defiance of the greens), but don't close down the coal mines. when next i am tempted to change providers by a cheaper offer, i shall certainly consider it - & i do not believe it will come from a rabidly green source. for now, alinta is fine by me - but beware. blind loyalty is not one of my characteristics!!!
