This is an important first step in helping you to begin saving money on your electricity bills.

We know it’s tempting to ignore all the usage information about our electricity and why we are being charged what we are being charged and simply pay to get it out of the way. Bills aren’t exactly exciting reading. But it’s worth taking the time to look over them – and we’re here to make that much easier.

Here is a breakdown of one of our electricity bills – we’ve added numbers to each section so you can read a description of them. We’d suggest you pay extra attention to the section about your average daily usage as that can help you find your exact spikes in electricity and helping you to figure out when and how you can reduce them to save money.
