Look at the entire package rather than just the FIT.

I don't like Origin at all, it took them 4 years to resolve a dispute with them (multiple times to EWOV which clearly showed them in the wrong EVERYTIME). The solution was something they rejected out of hand about 3.5 years earlier yet proposed it in the end to resolve and end the disputes, hows that for a bunch idiots.

yes origin,
i changed plans with them for the 10c feed in. they only paid 6 cents in the last bill. probably have to wait till they change the meter or some other lame excuse. so yes, i agree with david, origin is somewhat not to be trusted.
and yes, they new bidirectional meter is still not installed. however, as i do not use power from the grid anymore does not matter that much. as a matter of fact i could wind the old meter back and forth and use the grid as a free battery.

we have been through this before. enova's daily connection fee is 1.50 dollars. this totally negates the higher feed in tariff. you have to feed in 5kwh a day just to be even with the 90c origin daily fee. then having 12c atstead of 10c, you are way in the red.
that's the reason they can afford the higher feed in tariff.

that's the long answer to your short exclamation.

no worries, urs

If we have been through this before then it is evident you learnt absolutely nothing.

Enova are currently servicing the Essential Energy distribution area. Rather than making statements that have no validity, perhaps you should research what other providers charge for the daily service fee in the Essential Energy distribution area.

Diamond Energy... pays 8 cents FIT, charges $1.595/day service fee before discounts.

Energy Australia You might like to tell us all about the FIT.... daily service charge $1.46 up to $1.60 depending on the plan.
https://secure.energyaustralia.com.au/E ... 1-2017.pdf

Click Energy... $1.67/day service charge before discounts and a FIT of 10c.
https://www.clickenergy.com.au/energy-p ... -shine/98/

Red Energy.... $1.41/day service charge and 6.5c fit.
https://www.redenergy.com.au/docs/nsw_p ... Energy.pdf

Now australsolarier, you might like to look up the figures for Origin and present them here. You will find the daily service charge for Origin in the Essential Energy distribution area is not 90 cents, but don't take my word for it.


I, for one, use Enova Energy. I follow the pricing of service providers in the Essential Energy distribution area, and I recommend anyone in this distribution area do the numbers for Enova Energy against the other service providers. Make up your own minds on facts, not BS.

thanks for the tutorial apr.
in my area is origin and endeaver.
i was commenting on davidg's comment. then answering lanterns comment.

so, i stay with my comment:

https://www.originenergy.com.au/content ... oost10.PDF

in my case i would probably worse off.

please read comments in context.

what might be good in your area, is not necessarily that crash hot for the rest of australia.
he mate, i had not the intention to denigrate YOU or ENOVA. let's just stay cool and calm. we are not in the federal parliament house.
just stating the facts i see them. and you can state the facts you see. and everybody is happy

But australsolarier, If or when Enova Energy ventures into other distribution areas, it can be expected that their daily service charge will then be based around the charges passed on by the distributor for that area.

To be calling into question the competitiveness of Enova Energy based upon criteria that not only has no relevance, but also falsely represents the value of the supplier to the consumer, is stupid. You tell me what relevance charges in the Endeavour distribution area have to someone in the Essential Energy distribution area?

Would you be silly enough to suggest I change to Origin in my distribution area because Origin is cheaper in your distribution area when they work out dearer in my area?? (rhetorical question)
