AGL Energy app helps with household budgeting

No more power bill surprises

Have you ever been shocked because your power bill was higher than expected? Power bill surprises happen far too often—not because people are careless, but because it’s hard to keep track of how much energy our homes actually use. And by the time the bill arrives, it’s too late to do anything about it. Well, not any longer! AGL Energy’s mobile app is designed to help you track your home’s power use and avoid bill surprises. You can even set up spend alerts and see estimated bill forecasts. In this month’s video blog, I show you how it works.

Solar panels make financial sense

When my husband and I built a new house last year, we decided to invest in solar panels and we’re glad that we did. We have three adults and three kids living under our roof and despite the new house being bigger and having a swimming pool, our electricity bills are lower than they were at our old place.
