Four easy ways to save on your bill
Want to save on your power bill but it all seems too hard? We cut through the confusion with four easy ways to save on your bill without impacting your lifestyle or spending a cent.
1. Queensland Government dividend
From early 2018, all residential account holders will receive $50 off their annual bill thanks to the Queensland Government’s asset ownership dividend. The best part is you don’t have to do anything – the money will be automatically credited on your bill this year and again in 2019.
2. EasyPay Rewards
Don’t get steamed up by summer bills – EasyPay Rewards takes the heat off by smoothing your bills out across the year. Plus for up to three years residential customers can get $75 off their bills each year, and business customers can get $120 off each year. Make sure you apply for EasyPay Rewards by 30 June 2018 to receive all three rewards.
3. Electricity rebate
Are you missing out on the electricity rebate? The Queensland Government electricity rebate of up to $340 per year is available for eligible pensioners, seniors, health care card holders and asylum seekers. The rebate is applied as a daily amount, which is then paid to you in instalments through your electricity bill. Find out more about the electricity rebate and apply online.
4. Save with our energy tips
Just a few small changes in how you use electricity at home can make a difference to your power bill. Our biggest tip is to set your aircon at 25 degrees as it’s the sweet spot between staying cool and saving on your bill. Aircons make up 40% of the typical home’s energy use, so if you’re looking for bang for buck this is a great place to start. See our other home energy tips.
