Good call there Paul,
It gave me cause to have a look at my own power account.
I usually pay mine on-line these days, it saves getting money out of the bank (which you are charged for) and writing cheques (which also attract a fee).
Current kWh charges here are:
- 24 Hour Un-controlled = 20.24c/kWh
- Controlled (Night-Rate)= 14.4c/kWh
- Fixed Charge per kWh= 35.29c
- EC Levy-No Discount= 0.13c
The last part is the new Electricity Commission that the Goverment set up to manage our power use.
Can't say that it has done any good, just another tax on us.
I will also say that I get a 30% rebate on my power account, because I work for the local Power Board.
With prices like this, it all helps.
We were all fooled into having all-Electric houses here not that long ago.
I'm not complaining though, when summer turns up here, I'll be using the Air Conditioning flat out!
