Let’s Talk Electricity Bills!
Unfortunately the world has moved on in the area of electricity bills and now they are no longer set and forget. As soon as your current arrangement (usually for 12 months) expires the electricity retailer puts you onto a less generous discount. So many of the people who come into Z-NET for help to understand their bills are paying well above the amount they should – simply because they have not renegotiated the discount. And the shame of it is that the most disadvantaged households get hit most often – our pensioners and those who struggle to understand what the bills mean. Safeguard you valuable dollars by checking with your provider that they are offering you the very best deal. Discounts of up 25% on electricity usage are common, and if you shop around most times your provider will match the best deal you can find.

Or if it is all too complicated bring your latest bill down to the Z-NET office in the CWA Rooms (open on a Thursday) and get Trish to help, or email her at projects(Replace this parenthesis with the @ sign)zneturalla.org.au
