    Why is my daily supply charge $1-16 with Alinta (I also export solar) whilst somone on electricity only plan, has a daily supply chrge of $1-08. as per their website
    If it were shoulder or off peak , which it isnt, that still doesnt affect the daily supply charge!!!

    Can they discriminate like this ,legally?

    They like to pick punters with deep pockets?

    Alinta is gas, why would they charge you differently?

    How long have you been on your plan? I just called and got my Electricity moved to a plan (I'm with Energy Australia) which drops my daily connection charge from $1.31 to $0.91. All my other stuff stays the same, FIT and Per KWH cost for supply.

    Turns out my old plan lapsed which allowed them to put the connection fee up those tricky tricky rascals. This one is locked in for 2 years guaranteed.

    Considering I was getting power bills around $50 per qtr this should hopefully get me very close to $0 power bills.
