I signed up for Alinta from 9Saver during the Big Switch. I have been with them for a while. Last year I received my bill from Alinta it was about $1,000.00/quarter. Installed a 7.92Kw solar system the next bill became $1,400.00/quater. The electrician who installed the solar panel accepted that their installer had not installed the smart meter and gave me a credit. After reading all these negative comments I have rechecked my last bill that is due for payments. Well for a start we have one 50 inch TV less than last year, secondly, 1 person less for 5 weeks during that reporting period and our daily usage for the same period last year has ballooned from to 2.98kWh/day to 13.23kWh. More than 4 times the daily usage as same time last year. Alinta I don't think so. You might be one of the cheapest per kWh. But your accounting is erroneous. This is copied and pasted from the bill When you'll receive your next bill For quarterly bills: your electricity meter will be next read on approximately 26 Sep 2018. Ha Ha Ha Is your company joking? 2018??? Why the increase in usage? Why 2018????? Thanks Marco

3 answers
Hi Brent, this is depending on why the credit is on your account. There can be a credit on the account for a Solar Feedin rebate or an over payment of funds to your bill. I will send you a PM now to discuss further. Thanks, Rose.I pay money every fortnight onto my account, so I'm wondering if I can take some money back to myselfHi Brent, you can call 13 37 02 and request the refund. I can also help you with it, I would need to get your account details and email the correct team so if it is urgent I would suggest giving our Customer Service centre a call. If you'd like me to help please send me a PM with your details and how much you'd like refunded. Thanks, Rose.

Why does the number to call not even ring when i try to call it? 13 37 02 is what I am calling from NSW and it just says call ended every time. This is ridiculous. The website says 8am-9pm Monday to Friday so it should be working.
1 answer
Hi Grace, the number that you are calling is correct and you also have the correct opening times. I do apologise but I'm not sure why this is happening for you. I can get someone to call you if you'd like, please feel free to send me a private message with your details so I can organise this for you. Thanks, Rose.

Reading from the above regarding Section 6, So the $800 + dollars that we have in credit. We are not going to receive at all.
1 answer
Hi Lyn, thank you for your question. We do apply the $800+ dollars to your bills. However, in our Terms and conditions for Queensland, we would be unable to refund the solar credit if you were to leave Alinta Energy. If you have any further questions please don't hesitate to ask. Thanks, Emilia.

I have a Commonwealth Seniors Health card and I am registered with Synergy and getting a rebate from Synergy. I am not getting the rebate from Alinta. The Alinta documents says i have to register with Synergy but Synergy tell me to register with Alinta! I appear to have missed out on 6 years Health card rebate. What can I do.
1 answer
Hi Derek, Alinta Energy does not have an energy rebate, but if you're an eligible concession cardholder, you should register your details with Synergy. This may sound confusing, but as the State Government-funded energy rebate is for gas and electricity usage, the rebate is administered by Synergy through your Synergy account. You're eligible for this rebate if you hold a government concession card such as a Health Care Card, a Seniors' Card (State Government), a Pensioner Concession Card or a Department of Veterans' Affairs Card. For more information, visit the Synergy website. Hope this helps, this information can also be found on our website please click onto the attached link. https://www.alintaenergy.com.au/wa/faqs Kind Regards, Rose

How come when our daily consumption is 22 kwh charged out at $5.64 per day & the total days charged was 89 days you multiply that = $501.96 and your charge before the discount is $658.88 how do you come up with a $157.35 Discount or is it just ADDED ON. This according to our Current Invoice - Thanking you Terry - Account No 1572 6948

Hi Terry, I will send you a PM to get some more detail so I can look into this for you. Thanks, RoseIt is like these pay before discounts are just made up figures, I just got a similar bill $588 before and $452 after discount almost 140 difference avg daily charge $4.82 @19kw =$453 over 94 day period, shouldn't power companies be displaying the before discount figure as a late charge rather then before discount seems to be very misleadingAlinta have yet to respond to this Question ?? If the Discount Figure was consumed as well, then taken off - But I don't think that is the Case !!!

Hi Alinta, I'm currently with Alinta for both electricity and gas and going to move to a new address. How can I keep my same contract for the new place? Appreciate your quick reply Thanks Nandi
2 answers
Hi Nandi! Thank you for getting in touch with us. If you call our customer service agents, they will be able to transfer your account onto the new property. You can contact them on 13 37 02. Otherwise if you would like to send a private review message to us with your contact details, I can organise someone to call you :) Thanks, TigiHi Alinta, I am moving the house and I want to continue the same contract deal 43 as it is more beneficial for me than the current offers. I have one more year to continue deal 43 benefits as I took it in 2018. I checked your website and it says when moving houses I can continue my contract or select a new offer. But the customer service agent that I talked today said alinta website has false information regarding moving houses where I have to select a new offer if I am moving to a new house even though I have another one year to get deal 43 benefit with alinta. Very unprofessional and confusing. The only reason i am with Alinta is the deal 43 offer that I am currently with. Alinta has advertise that when customer is moving they can continue the same contract or start a new one. Therefore I believe i can i continue the same contract when I am moving to a new house. Please do reply. Thanks
