I have been inundated by agents wanting to give me an electrical supply comparison via the telephone.

These comparison companies do try hard…….
However, they do admit its up to the actual main supplier as to whether or not a good comparison is available.

I suggested the following.
Only compare electrical supplier in the same post code.
Ideally, with the approximately the same overall consumption.
The same number of days and the same season or quarter.

Compare electrical itemisation under a strict definition of elements such as…
Quarter…. No of Days (usually 91days0
Consumption $/ kWh/ day
Dedicated Circuit(s)

Supply Charge ($ / day)
Retailer Solar Buy-back rate $/ kWh /day
Rebate (eg. NSW Govn pension etc).$
GST.....(10%) $

None of the "agents for comparison" seem to want to address all these parameters, They merely want to say we can offer a 26 or 28% REDUCTION IN YOUR ELECTRICITY BILL, So that a rational approach cannot be determined. RegardZ.
