Key contract features

Reporting

AGL must provide clients and NSW Procurement with various formats of reporting to help clients to analyse their gas consumption more efficiently, thus reducing consumption costs.

Site consumption reports

Generally multiple site agencies will make use of these reports. AGL will set up the process for compiling these reports and the supply addresses that will form part of the agency customer report and it is to be provided at no cost to buyers.
Buyers can request monthly, quarterly, six-monthly and / or annual account consumption reports.

Estimation methodology

if the metering equipment installed at the site address makes an incorrect reading or fails to operate (either at all, or properly), or if access to the metering equipment at the supply address is denied for any reason, the contractor will estimate the quantity of gas supplied having regard to the buyer's prior billing history, to meter readings subsequently obtained, or by any other procedure established under the NSW Gas Supply Act 1996 or any other relevant law applicable to the contractor.
