This month: Discover Energy $50 – $50 Referral
2020-11-09
From 10 November 2020 to 10 December 2020, when you refer a friend and they successfully sign up and switch, you both receive $50 electricity credit each! There’s no cap on the number of friends you can refer, which means significant rewards for you if they switch! Simply send referral details to your account manager/energy consultant or get your friends to mention the promotion when they sign up. Start referring and receiving credits! Send your referrals to your Energy Consultant via Facebook Messenger here: http://m.me/discoverenergy Terms and Conditions To qualify for the $50+$50 referral promotion, a customer must be referred to Discover Energy, and signed up to a Discover Energy service during the promotional event period (11.10.20-12.10.20). Upon the successful switch of the referred customer, both the referrer and referee are each eligible for a $50 AUD electricity credit, which will be applied according to the rules of the below credit schedule.  $50+$50 referral promotion rules:The referrer must be a current customer of Discover Energy. The $50 AUD electricity credit received by both customers will be applied following the below credit schedule: $20 when the referee is switched, $10 when the referee pays the bill for the first time, $10 when the referee pays the bill for the second time and the final $10 when the referee pays the bill for the third time. This schedule applies to both parties. There is no upper limit for successful referrals during the promotional period. For example: If a customer refers 10 referees who successfully sign up and switch to a Discover Energy service, the referer will receive a $50 credit for each customer, or $500 dollar electricity credit to their account. The $50 electricity credit received by both parties are non-transferable, and both parties have the right to give up the reward. During the promotional period, if either the referrer or the referee leaves Discover Energy for any reason, the other party is still eligible for the credit. However if the referee leaves Discover Energy, the referrer will only receive the amount of credits eligible according to the credit schedule. The referee will still receive the $50 credit for joining, even if the referrer leaves Discover Energy. The $50 AUD electricity credit includes GST and cannot be exchanged for cash. This activity does not conflict with Discover Energy’s “Share and Save promotion” ($30 credit for a social media share, $20 credit for 30 likes) and a customer is eligible to receive both rewards in tandem.  The promotion “$50+$50 referral promotion” will temporarily replace the existing “$60 referral promotion” for the promotional period. Customers cannot receive both rewards in tandem.  The final interpretation of promotional outcomes belongs to Discover Energy. Discover Energy may, at its absolute discretion, either decline to apply the $50+$50 referral promotion or, if it has already been applied, remove the $50+$50 referral promotion credit from the relevant account where Discover Energy reasonably believes that the referrer or referee are taking unfair advantage of this offer.

FAQ: Why are my energy bills so high?
2020-10-20
At Discover Energy, we help customers everyday to better understand their energy and assist them in accessing cheaper, smarter and greener energy. In this new series, we present answers to some of our most frequently asked questions the most important things you need to know about your electricity. Why are my energy bills so high? There are various reasons why your most recent energy bill might be very high. In fact, we wrote a whole article about it. But here’s a general breakdown of what makes up your energy bill, to help you understand how your bill is calculated. Your energy bill is dependent on the tariff your plan is on. All energy plans have a fixed tariff known as the daily supply charge: this is a daily fixed rate that you pay for use of the network and is not affected by the amount of energy you use. Your bill will also have variable charges based on your usage for the period. Here are the two most common tariffs you will be on.   Flat Rate (Single Rate) Tariff: If you are on a flat rate tariff, you will pay the same rate for the amount of energy you consume, regardless of the time of the day you use it. If you have a traditional meter, you will likely be on a flat rate tariff. Gas plans only use single-rate tariffs.  OR Time of use Tariff: If you are on a Time of Use (Peak, shoulder and off-peak tariff, you pay a different price for energy depending on the time of day you use it. For example, on a time of use tariff you will pay a higher rate of energy at a peak period, usually afternoon and early evening when usage is high (for example, 2pm-8pm). During off-peak (10pm-7am), you will pay a lower rate. Shoulder rates usually sit somewhere in between the peak and off-peak rates and would apply to all other times of the day. The rates and timing schedules of a time of use tariff vary depending your network distributor and the allocated tariff. If you have a smart meter, you will likely be placed on a time of use tariff.  In addition to one of the above tariffs, you might also have a control load tariff, which is a specific tariff for a specific appliance in your home such as an electric hot water system.  Want a more detailed explanation of a Discover Energy bill? Check it out here. So why is my bill so high? Your energy bill might be high because you’ve used a lot more energy during peak period. For example, due to COVID-19, many households are spending more time at home than they normally do, or the weather has been extreme so you’ve been using your air-conditioner or heater more than usual. Or perhaps you’ve been using your appliance which has a control-load tariff applied to it more than usual.  Check that your energy offer is current, some offers only have limited benefits that expire after a set period. If your benefit period has expired, you may no longer be receiving a discount.

FAQ: Why are my energy rates different than my friend’s?
2020-10-09
At Discover Energy, we help customers everyday to better understand their energy and assist them in accessing cheaper, smarter and greener energy. In this new series, we present answers to some of our most frequently asked questions the most important things you need to know about your electricity. Here are two commonly asked questions from Discover Energy customers: Why are my energy rates different than my friend, even though we live in neighbouring suburbs and use the same energy provider? One of the main reasons why the rates of your energy plan are different is due to your household location, which determines which electricity distribution network you are connected to. For example, here are the three distribution networks that serve NSW: EndeavourEnergyArea served – Southern & Western Metropolitan Sydney and surrounds including the Blue Mountains and the Illawarra.AusgridArea served – Central Coast, Inner, Northern & Eastern metropolitan Sydney and surroundsEssential EnergyArea served – Country & regional NSW, Southern regional QLD Some networks incur more distribution costs than others. For example, the NSW suburb of Bankstown is part of the Ausgrid network and typically pays higher distribution costs than neighbouring suburb, Cabramatta, which is part of the Endeavour Energy network. Therefore, you will always need to provide your suburb to receive an energy comparison or energy quote. Not sure who your distributor is? If you are not sure who your distributor is, you can find out by checking your bill or contacting your retailer. _____ Does the quality of energy change from provider to provider?  We’ve been asked by customers if it’s possible to pay for “premium” energy or if some retailers provide better quality energy than others. The short answer is no. Physical energy is purchased from the national energy market and the supply of your energy (how your household receives energy) is delivered and managed by your energy distribution network. While you may receive the occasional interruption to your energy due to such events as extreme weather or animal interference, overall, everyone receives the same quality and service, regardless of their distribution network or their retailer. Moving from one retailer/provider to another, for example moving from AGL to Energy Australia, or to a new energy retailer as Discover Energy, will not affect the delivery or “quality” of your energy in any way. You will still receive the same safe, reliable energy by your energy distribution network, regardless of which retailer you choose.

Smart Meters: What you need to know
2020-09-30
By Jessica, Discover Energy Customer Service Manager What is a “Smart Meter”? A smart meter (sometimes called an advanced meter or a “type 4” meter) is a meter that digitally measures your electricity use.  A smart meter will record your energy usage every 30 minutes so you know when and how much electricity is being used. Typically, smart meters are remotely read which means your electricity usage information is sent directly to us remotely without the need for a meter reader to physically attend your property. Smart meters are also capable of other things like notifying the electricity distributor in the event of a power failure, measuring the power quality at your premises, or being switched on and off remotely without the need for a field visit from a technician. Example of a Smart Meter What are the benefits of having a smart meter? There are several benefits to having a smart meter.  They can: Give you access to a wider range of services such as battery storage and solar generation.Give you detailed information about your electricity usage so you can understand when you’re using your electricity and how much you use at particular times.  This can help you reduce your electricity usage, or plan your usage to take advantage of lower rates at different times of the day.Be remotely read so a meter reader won’t need physical access to your meter.  This is particularly helpful if you have access issues like locked gates or your meter is inside the building.  It also helps to eliminate estimated billsAllow us to offer you better and more innovative products like energy management apps, solar trading schemes and online access to your usage data.  Discover Energy are also rolling out a new feature that allows you to predict your energy consumption!Allow for monthly billing.  More frequent, smaller bills help reduce bill shockAllow electricity distributors to detect outages more quickly and monitor the quality of your electricity supply. This will help to minimise the number and length of electricity supply outages. Are Smart Meters Safe? Smart meters are manufactured and installed according to Australian Standards.  All smart meters must comply with electromagnetic exposure limits developed by the Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency (ARPANSA). The same limits apply to things like mobile and cordless phones, Wi-Fi routers and baby monitors. For more information about Smart Meters and Health you can find a detailed report from ARPANSA here. How do I get a smart meter? Easy!  You can contact us to ask for a smart meter by phone, email or webchat Phone: 1300 946 898 Email: customerservice@discoverenergy.com.au WebChat: http://www.discoverenergy.com.au Just let us know your account number and address and we will arrange for it to be installed accordingly.  Typically it takes 3-4 weeks to have a smart meter installed. We are also required to install a smart meter for new connections (if you build a new house) or if your current meter is faulty or has reached the end of its life and needs replacing. If you have any questions you can contact Discover Energy directly or read more information provided by the Australian Energy Regulator here.
