How do you measure my consumption?

Each unit or lot in the Body Corporate’s Embedded Network has an individual meter; these meters are read either remotely or via a meter reader who attends the site at the end of each billing period. This ensures that each lot is only paying for the electricity they have consumed.


How do you calculate my account?

Four parts make up the amount on the bottom of your account:

  1. Consumption – The consumption is measured by reading each lots individual meter
  2. The Tariff – The tariff is set by the Body Corporate based on a negotiated Bulk Supply Agreement
  3. Service Fee – This is the contracted amount agreed to for the provision of utility services
  4. Rebates – If eligible and you have provided a completed rebate form a Rebate will appear on your invoice. This is issued in accordance with the Queensland Government Department of Energy and Water.

You can calculate your bill by multiplying your consumption by the tariff and then adding the service fee and rebates.


My consumption looks too high, what can I do?

If your consumption looks higher than normal, we can arrange a check read to be performed on the meter, there may be a cost, which is outlined in your application form. We also monitor billing cycles in an attempt to identify consumption levels that are higher than the average user for the building.
