KEEP A CLOSE EYE ON USAGE AND COSTS
Name: Ryan State: NSW
When Sydney man Ryan became fed up with high energy bills that gave little insight into consumption and cost, he went looking for a better option. “I had begun looking at some of our financial products and larger household expenses to make sure that the providers we were using were giving us the best value for money,” he says. Ryan lives in Sydney’s inner west with his wife and two-year-old twins, and the family was spending about $3000 a year ($250 per month) on power. “I didn’t like that our original provider was essentially a ‘ black box’ sending us a quarterly bill with no real insight into what the cost drivers were and showing no initiative to help us get the better value I was seeking.”
