In my previous blog, I compared the Origin Energy and AGL 21c solar feed-in tariff energy plans based on single tariff billing. You can read the blog here.
This comparison will be to see who offers the best 21c Solar feed-in tariff deal based on Time-of-Use (TOU) billing. I have previously written blogs about TOU billing. You can read my blog from last year here. The reality is that if you are a four-person + household, then TOU billing will benefit you more than single tariff billing irrespective of whether you have solar PV installed or not.
For this comparison, I am going to use my energy usage stats and my solar export stats to generate an accurate comparison between Origin and AGL. In my household, there are two adults and two children. I have an 8.82kW rated solar energy system, which is export limited to 7kWh. I am on the Origin Energy – Solar Boost 21c Solar feed-in tariff plan based on TOU billing.
Let’s get started. Below is my energy bill account summary during the summer months. I have deleted any reference to my address or account number for privacy reasons.
You will see my usage stats:
This usage is relatively typical for a working family with kids.
I have compared the advertised TOU rates for both Origin Energy and AGL under their prospective solar plans below.
And the verdict is that once again, both Origin and AGL are near identical. AGL is just over $2 better – indeed not worth me changing energy accounts…except that AGL is also offering a $75 sign-up bonus for new customers?
So to show you this comparison is legitimate, see a few more snapshots of my energy bill below.
My solar export from an 8.82kW solar system (with an export limit)
And my $592.08 of solar feed-in credit is then deducted from my fixed charges of $417.59
Giving me a net credit of $174.49 – which is pretty handy heading into Autumn & Winter.
