The quick answer is that, yes, the cost per kWh is included in the calculation of your saving.
We work out electricity savings based on cost per kWh, cost per days connected and any applicable discounts, charges or credits applied to your bill.
Per our Guide to home energy charges in NSW and South East QLD, your energy bill consists of:
- supply charges (charged for every day you are connected to the grid) and
- usage charges (charged per kWh you consume from the grid)
- discounts and other credits applied to these charges
- account charges (like payment processing fees)
When we work out how much you are spending on your current contract we take all of these charges into account.
We also take them into account when calculating the saving you would make if you moved to a new plan.
