The energy bills provided by one company provide you with excellent information about your daily usage, daily cost and feed-in tariff.

It is certainly appreciated and allows you to identify where you could make savings by reducing your usage during the billing period. Another feature included is a comparison of your usage and cost for the same billing period the previous year.

My bill advised me that I had a higher cost of 93 per cent this year, and that my average daily cost was $4.54 for 14.27kwh. For the same period last year, my daily cost was $2.35 for 14.23kwh.

Included at the bottom of the email was this incomplete statement,"On average you are spending more per day on your energy than this bill period last year" - because we put our charges up. We constantly hear that our bills are going to go down - the question is when?
