From projected bills to 'usage so far' and 'cost-to-date', here's a breakdown of your electricity and gas usage calculations in My Account and the AGL app.

Demand Tarrif Should be Charged Daily
Hi All, I don't understand why we are being charged the Demand Charge rate for the worst day for the billing period across the entire period. Doesn't it make more sense to apply that on a daily basis? For example, if someone turns on the kettle, toaster and then a heater on one of the days of my billing period, I get charged as if I did that everyday. My demand on the power grid was only applicable on that one day, so it makes sense to do this on a daily basis.
How is the Demand Tariff determined?
I am trying to understand how the "Demand Tariff" is determined. AGL Description: Demand Charges are based on the load you place on the electricity network. It is measured over 30-minute intervals during your demand time period. The highest measure for the billing month is used to calculate your Demand charge for the entire month. The unit for charging is c/kW/day. As this is kW and not kWh, I presume this is the peak "instantaneous" kW consumption during the any 30-minute interval during the demand time period. [it would seem that the 30-minute interval is redundant]
