One of the easiest things you can do to make sure your energy bill is as low as it can be is to call your energy company to check your concessions are up-to-date and being applied to your bill.
If you’re not sure if your energy company has all your concessions listed on your account, give them a call to check. They’re only too happy to make sure everything is present and correct.
Check in with your energy company every 12 months.
This would be our number one tip.
Your concessions are only added to your bill if your company has the most up-to-date information, so make sure the name and address on your energy bill match the name and address on your concession card.
If any of your personal details change – say if you move house, or get a new concession card – call your company and update them as soon as possible.
Know your energy concessions.
Ask your energy company to check you’re getting all the concessions you are eligible for. They will be able to do a quick check.
If you’ve missed out on claiming any concessions, your energy company can back-date them for the last 12 months.
