    @nfronda, so it is like 300-350/month during summer and 150-200/month during winter?

    ehehehe, i thought it is more expensive during winter because of heater... :)

    thanks for sharing!!

    @psychoboy..Ganun na nga.. Pag winter kasi, hndi namn masyadong malamig d2, so no need na ung heater..kaya mababa ang bill pag winter. Pag summer namn, sobrang init d2.. So ang aircon 24 hrs na umaandar kaya mataas bill pag summer.

    06-01-11: Arrived Australia (457 visa dependent on my dad)
    28-05-12: Lodged RSMS 857 visa (seperate from my dad already)

    Hello psychoboy.

    Share ko yung sakin. 1-BR apartment, I don't share the apartment: Electricity 70; Gas 50.

    Take note, in the summer, virtually no aircon, no heater. While ngayon that it's hitting 8 deg C at sobrang lamig na, nonstop na yung airconditioning ko. You can't believe how cold it gets in the evenings!! I expect to see significant increase in my electricity. Gas doesn't change much coz I use hot water talaga for shower, washing dishes, etc, Kahit summer man yan or winter. Water is free.

    AGL for electricity. I would have wanted to use AGL for gas as well, pero wala pa sila connection samin. Origin for gas.

    Wow, 400 per month is massive... Kami usually around 130 kami per month before; yun nga lang dalawa lang kami ni misis but in all fairness aircon all you want kami every night.

    Yung $14.14 ko, that is my water bill for 3 wks, naabutan na kasi ng cut-off... Wala pa diyan gas and electricity...

    I just got our water bill; 3wks worth of usage came out at A$14.14...
    Revisiting this thread again since I started it... We just got our fist electric bill from Origin; we will be paying $75 for 45 days of usage with average daily consumption of 2.16kWh - take note, this is just basic lights, fridge and washing machine plus iphone/laptop charging and wifi modem. wala kami TV, dryer and non-usage of the heater here.

    I would say mahal sya, S$130 kami sa Singapore before and this included daily aircon of roughly 8hrs/day, ps3, TV, washing machine, water and gas consumption.

    Just have to get use to this kind of pricing I guess... :D

    Ehehehe, I dunno sa iba and I don't have any basis of comparison kasi BUT I find it ridiculous na may daily connection fee amounting to around a dollar - IMAGINE sa bill ko for 45 days, I paid $30 lang for electricity, the rest ($45) is for the connection fee (or whatever you call it...)

    Darn!! :)

    sana gumamit ka yung ng comparison website...
    may ginamit ako dating comparison na website ng government ng AU.
    Sorry nakalimutan ko url :D

    Base doon sa result, AGL ang pinaka cheapest sa area namin.
    per area iba ang result. I believe hindi naman sya bias kasi government website sya.

    Ano yang connection fee na yan? parang wala AGL nyan.
    Ang dami pang discount nung nag-apply ako kelangan ko nga lang mag lock-in sa kanila for 2years.

    First billing ko may discount akong $100.
    Pag on time ang bayad may discount.
    Pag direct debit may 2% discount.
    At kung anong anek anek pa.


    Check AGL website or better yet, use a comparison website para alam nyo cheapest sa area nyo.

    So my bill for more than 3months use is $171 less $100 so $71 na lang, not bad na rin.

    They call it service charge and from my statement, it is costing me $1.02 per day...

    $171 bill mo, if you don't mind may I know details ng house ninyo (i.e. ilan kayo, ano usage ninyo...)

    mga $100 ako per month sa gas, same price sa electricity, yung water ko libre at sa flat lang ako nakatira. +/- $20 lang usually, and as you know, quarterly ang bayad.

    @psychoboy

    nakita ko na yung supply charge...

    Usage and supply charges
    Peak 452 [email protected] $0.2440 $110.29
    Supply Charge $59.03
    Total usage and supply charges $169.32

    ito nga pala yung mga discounts and rebates sa AGL
    10% Guaranteed PeakDiscount
    2% Direct Debit Discount
    5% Pay On Time Discount

    mga kaforum, hindi ko sinasabi na mura ang AGL ha, nagkataon lang sa area namin sya mura... kaya mas maganda talaga iresearch kung anong mura sa area nyo...

    cheers :)

    Mali ka sa dalawa boss @kremitz - I don't have a kid (but I have a wife) and I don't live in Sydney... :)

    We try to make do with $2500 per month pero ngayon since bago pa kami, every now and then may mga big ticket items na binibili pero yung regular expense nakakaya naman namin sa amount na iyon.

    Yup, me and my wife are renting our own 2-bed house... :)

    Rental cost varies mate; it varies differently; http://www.domain.com.au will give you an idea of how much would be the damage for such.

    @TasBurrfoot aha! Youve changed your name. Hihihi. Yes you have a point. Its better to share with individuals than family. Lalo na with kids. Its hard to divide and justify expenses like pub amongst household members. Meron naman 1BR apartments na affordable, i guess @kremitz
