Ways to pay your bill
Take the sting out of receiving all your bills at once with these convenient direct debit options. Plus as an added bonus you’ll save up to $40* per year just by paying your electricity and water bills from a savings or cheque account.
With EvenPay your bill payments are spread out over the entire year based on your history – so you’ll pay the same amount every month or fortnight. Every six months we’ll take another look to make sure your payments still cover your use and let you know if we recommend any changes.
How does this work?
The annual total of your ActewAGL account (including current account balance) is averaged out on a monthly or fortnightly basis and deducted from your nominated savings, cheque or credit card account.
For example, if your annual bills total $1,200 and you want your direct debit payments deducted monthly through EvenPay, you will potentially pay $100 each month.
We will assess your account every 6 months and if your annual usage varies, we may re-calculate your payment amount and adjust your deductions accordingly and we’ll notify you in writing of the changed amount.
The full amount of your bill will be deducted on the day the payment is due – so no more worrying about overdue bills – you’ll still receive a copy of your invoice for your records.
You set a fixed monthly or fortnightly payment, and then pay any remaining balance on your bill by the due date.
For example, if you choose to have $100 per month deducted from nominated savings, cheque or credit card account, you will have potentially paid $300.00 by the time your quarterly electricity bill is raised. If your electricity bill is $350, you will only have to pay the difference of $50 on the date the payment is due. If your account is in credit at the end of the quarter, the amount will be deducted from your next electricity bill.
BudgetPay is not available for natural gas.
If you receive payments for solar power generation, FullPay solar is available to you. If you generate more credits than you use, net credits will be automatically refunded to your nominated cheque or savings account. If you generate less energy than you use, the remaining balance will be deducted from your nominated account on the day the payment is due.
*The discount does not apply if you pay by credit card or if you have an existing Market Retail Contract and is a total saving of up to $40.16 (GST inclusive) for both services per annum.
