Flexible pricing can lower electricity costs for some households but it will not be the right choice for everyone.
Flexible pricing may lower electricity costs for households that use most of their electricity during the off-peak and shoulder periods and/or are able to shift their usage to these off-peak times.
You should review the flexible pricing rates, your energy usage patterns and your ability to change those patterns and carefully consider whether flexible pricing will be beneficial for you before changing.
To view your current energy usage and track ongoing usage, take a look at My AGL IQ®. This clever online tool allows customers with a smart meter to monitor their energy usage and charges throughout the day. It’s exclusive and free to AGL customers.
