What is a payment processing fee?

If you pay your energy bills using a credit card, or any card that uses a credit card payment facility, AGL is charged a merchant services fee by your financial institution. This will appear on your next bill as 'payment processing fee'. You can view the Payment Processing Fee amount in your relevant state's Fee Schedule.

There are other methods for paying your energy bills with AGL that won't incur a payment processing fee, which you can learn about here.

How is my projected energy bill calculated?

How is bill projection calculated?

Your bill projection is an estimated total of what your bill will be at the end of your billing cycle, either for the month or for the quarter.

For customers with a smart meter, the bill projection estimate will be based on your average daily usage so far and the number of days left in your billing cycle.

For customers with a basic meter, the bill projection estimate will be based on your energy usage for the same period last year, your most recent bill, or if you're new to AGL, it will be based the average of similar customers or households in your state.

How are 'usage so far' and 'cost-to-date' calculated?

For customers with a smart meter:

  • The usage so far is the amount of energy you've used so far in this billing cycle.
  • The cost-to-date is the cost for your usage so far and will include supply charges, usage charges, any applicable solar, demand or green charges, and one-off credits, along with GST.

For customers with a basic meter:

  • The usage so far is an estimated figure based on your usage for the same period last year, your most recent bill, or if you're new to AGL, with this meter it will be based other customers or households in your state.
  • The cost-to-date will be the costs associated with this estimated usage and includes supply charges, usage charges, guaranteed discounts and concessions, along with GST.

Regardless of your meter type, if you're receiving other credits like a pay on time discount this will not be included in the cost-to-date estimate.

Why do I get estimated bills?

Sometimes we might need to estimate your energy usage, rather than organise a read of your meter. There's a few reasons why this might be necessary.

For example, the distributors who read your meter might have trouble accessing it. This usually happens if your meter's been installed indoors, is behind a locked gate, or is guarded by a pet pooch.

If you receive monthly bills, we'll need to estimate your usage as your distributor usually only provides us with an actual read every two or three months. If you've got a smart meter installed, it'll upload your meter data at 30 minute intervals.

Once we get an actual meter read from your distributor, or once you submit a read yourself via My Account or the App, we'll check and correct your account based on if we've charged you too much or too little. If we have charged you the wrong amount, we'll either include an adjustment on your next bill or resend you an adjusted energy bill. You can tell if your bill is based on an estimate or an actual read by looking at the 'Reading Type' or 'Current Reading' section on the back of your bill.

Avoiding estimated bills is easy:  Just submit your reads online via My Account or the App and we'll bill you based on those reads. Check out this guide for reading your meter.


In some circumstances where these options might not be possible, you may need to request an actual meter read (a fee may apply). Please chat with us to arrange.
