If you live in Sydney, you might be wondering what the likely average amount you are going to spend on power is in the coming year. The start of the year is always a good time to check this, and more generally it’s just a wise move to keep one eye on your future bills. In this post, we’ll take a look at the average power bills that you can expect to find in Sydney at the moment and in the coming months. This should help you plan ahead - but we’ll also discuss some great ways to reduce your usage and consumption across the board.
As with anything, the more energy you use, the more it is going to cost you. That’s why it’s so important to keep your usage as low as you can. But there is only so much you can do that by, and you are always going to have a minimum baseline amount of electricity that you need to use in your home.
In terms of your energy bills, it’s also important to know that there are two main kinds of charge: the supply rate and the usage rate. It’s that latter rate which will go up if you are using more electricity. Changing that through reduced usage is one great way to keep bills lower.
The good news for Sydneysiders is that the cost of power is decreasing. The city enjoys a lower average cost power bill than in the past, and the coming year is set to look particularly promising on this front. As we have already seen, it always depends on usage too. With the average Sydney home using 3900kWh of electricity in a given year, that means that the average annual electricity cost for a home is generally between $949 and $1,462. That’s good news for everyone in every corner of the city.
Tips For Reducing Your Bills
As we alluded to above, there are a lot of things you can do to keep your bills low. The main one is obviously to focus on using less electricity, which can be achieved in a number of ways. You might want to think about turning appliances off when not using them, in order to avoid the dreaded standby drain that can happen. And always turn off lights when you are not using them too. You might also want to check that you are on the best possible tariff for your area. If you do all that, you’ll find that your bills do tend to go down over time, thus helping your household a great deal.
As you can see, energy bills are looking to improve considerably across Sydney in the coming year. That’s certainly good news, and it’s something to look forward to. At the same time, if you need to keep your bills even lower, take the advice above to make that so. When you keep your usage down, you’ll find that it makes a big difference.
