A digital meter (otherwise known as a smart meter) has the ability to provide remote meter readings, which can remove the need for estimated bills and onsite meter reads.
With the AGL Energy App, you can access historical energy usage data by hour, day, week and month. Without a smart meter in your home or small business, the AGL Energy App will be missing some functionality, including current electricity usage and bill projections.
The way your projected bill is calculated depends on the type of energy meter you have. Refer to the section below for your type of meter.
If you have recently completed your own meter read and would like to understand how this affects your bill projection, please refer to How is my electricity bill calculated after completing my own meter read?
Need more help understanding your bill? Take a look at I don't understand my bill. What can I do?
This section applies to you if you have a smart electricity meter.
If you have a smart electricity meter you may be able to view a projection of your next bill.
Your bill projection is an estimate only. Here’s how it works:
We calculate your average daily charges for the billing period so far.
We multiply this figure by the total number of days in the billing period.
This projection takes into account usage charges, supply charges and one-off credits. It also includes solar, demand and green charges, along with GST. The projection excludes any pay-on-time discounts, merchant fees and miscellaneous adjustments.
Remember, your bill projection is an estimate. Your actual bill may be different.
The cost so far tells you the cost of your energy consumption up to this point in your billing period. It includes supply charges, usage charges and one-off credits. It also includes solar, demand and green charges, along with GST. Pay-on-time discounts, merchant fees and miscellaneous adjustments are excluded.
You may be able to view a cost to date and projection of your next bill. Remember, your cost to date and bill projection is an estimate only. If you have a Basic meter, we can estimate the ‘cost so far’ and project your next bill based on:
Your energy usage history from the same period last year or
Your most recent bill or
If you're new to AGL or don't have usage history for your current meter, ‘cost so far’ and bill; projection are estimated based on other customers or households in your state.
This cost to date and bill projection takes into account usage charges, supply charges, guaranteed discounts and any concessions.It will also include solar, demand and green charges if applicable. All charges displayed include GST. The cost to date and bill projection excludes any conditional discounts (such as Pay On Time discount), merchant fees and one off adjustments.
