After you sign up to AGL for gas or electricity, it can take as long as three months for your service to transfer across to us. During that time, we won’t have any usage information to show you in My Account. We’ll contact you once your transfer is complete, so you can log in and see it all for the first time.
If you have a remotely read smart electricity meter you may be able to view a projection of your next bill.
Your projected bill is calculated by using your historical data to estimate your average daily energy usage, until the end of your current billing period.
It is a projection only, and does not factor in any unbilled charges such as credits, pay on time discounts or other unbilled charges. Your actual bill may also be different from your projected bill if your usage patterns change during the billing period.
Download or view the projected bill details in My Account or the AGL Energy App.
Whilst your gas meter measures gas consumption in cubic meters, your usage is actually billed in ‘megajoules’ or ‘units’ on your bill, depending on your state. To calculate the number of megajoules, you must subtract your meter’s end read from the start read, then multiply by pressure factor and heating value. For WA, the number of Megajoules is then divided by 3.6 to get to billed units. A unit of gas is equivalent to 1 kilowatt hour of energy.
