Re: Paying weekly via AGL app using smart meter data

f you have an atlas mk10d meter an a 3 phase inverter check that the 03 and 13 registers are not both incrementing at the same time even though you may be generating more power than you are using.

Re: AGL's billing system for smart meters

I found the problem, we have a 3 phase inverter, 3 phase air-conditioner, and the remainder of the house is wired to L2 (phase-2), mostly L2 shows we are importing around 2.2 amps as a background usage while L1 and L3 are exporting around 3.9amps each during the day. As such both the 03 and the 13 registers are continuing to increment at the same time as we are using energy from L2 but putting back twice this with L1 and L3. Should not the smart meter be smart enough to work out the real time p ...

Re: AGL's billing system for smart meters

This does not answer my question "how does AGL actually calculate the net position and charges?" (what is the formula used to cost the bill)How the calculation is made determines the cost. This cost can vary say from $1000 a quarter to $3000 per quarter depending on how you make the calculation. It's not a simple matter of adding up all power generated less that supplied, and paying the difference, or being paid the difference at the feed in rate, for a 91 day period. This would be what most peo ...

AGL's billing system for smart meters

Following several calls to AGL no-one can tell me the exact method used to calculate the net position on my solar installation costs. Loads fluctuate minute by minute, the tech support team tell me a smart meter has 30 minute updates here on the community blog it is reported as every 15 minutes. The bill analysis and bill overview in the AGL app both give different results which is in itself confusing. So does AGL calculate the net energy position based on the integral of all samples taken over ...
