Best Electricity and Gas Plans in Sydney? Slugged with Massive $240 Monthly Gas Bill
Last edited 22/07/2019 - 14:45
So i recently moved from a flat to a house and i have been with agl for a long time, They were offering me a 25% pay on time discount and when i moved they are offering me 27% as i am signing up on gas as well which has a pay on time discoutn of 17%.
Now the problem is i jost got slugged with my first Gas bill and it is very very high at $240 and if payed on time at $205 it says i use about 245.94MJ a day with a cost daily of $8.89. Now i am new to gas but this seems rather very large when gas is supposed to be cheaper than elctricity which i currently use 11.21kwh a day with daily charge of $4.99.
I only use gas for the stove which is run maybe max 1h a day then the hot showers which is around 20 min a day. Other than that we use gas heater as well but only 1-2h a day, its a small portable one with 21mj rating.
is this right? is there a better option? Defintly cutting gas heater off and seeing if the meter is reading way lower or not. Also not sure why electricity price is still massive, same as flat price. Theres nothing extra being run on electricity, same appliances and same lights, fridge, washing etc.
I am currently with AGL and been with them for last 3 years.
Update: I checked and turns out that estimated my consumtion by over 200% now the bill went down from $240 to $73.78 also had a look and they didnt have my concession discount since the move and got them to fix that as well. Still its a bit high as the cost of electric is correct and did not change which instead of paying 350-400 a qaurter it looks like with gas its going to be 600-700 a qarter which is insane.
I'll check on the gas now and see if i can figure it out, if not ill try linking some photos.
Update2: Gas hot water is a BOSCH Professional plus.
