Insanely high "estimated" gas bill


So it's happened again, after AGL said they'd fixed things so I wouldn't receive these insanely high estimated bills.


Nearly $613 for 90 days in a house with just 1 person.


Same period usage last year was less than half that so why would AGL estimate that I'd be using more than DOUBLE this year ?

Hi Pepito,


Welcome to the AGL Community!


I understand that estimated meter readings can be frustrating. You can read more about these here: Why do I get estimated bills?


Kind regards,

I feel your pain!
Attach is my JUL estimated Bill for Electricity which jumped up over 1000% ($800 for 1 month)
If it doesn't look right it's not right! Yet AGL just issue it out anyway and waste another month to investigate what's happening.


Hi, @KennyT that is nothing compared to my bill here:





This is for just two adult and one baby living in an old 2 bedroom apartment but got charged 20x 5 people household.


Sending weekly photos of the meter reads to does not help at all.


So, I wonder how did you end up escalating your case of the exorbitant gas bill charge?
