    Default NSW Electricity & Water - bill frequency?

    Hello,
    I'll be going on parental leave in about 4 weeks, and shifting from paying all our bills from my monthly pay to paying them in 2 lots each month from hubby's fortnightly pay, so I'm trying to figure out exactly which bills will be due when so I can manage the payments.

    The billing period seems to vary from 70-something up to 100+ days; just wondering if anyone knows if there is any method to this madness so I can try to predict when these bills will be due?

    Ours arrive pretty regularly. Every 3 months on around the same date which is usually a week after the meter has been read. We dont get a water bill so thats just for electricity.

    Id just call your provider and ask them.

    Mine are regular too. Electricity is every 3 months. I don't pay that much attention to water but i think it's the same.

    I've just checked our water bills for 2012; 93, 108, 76 and 94 day billing periods.
    I think what I'll do is add up the total amount of the bills for 2012, add a few $$ for inflation / more usage with a new bub and me at home all day, then divide by 26, then set up a couple of free high-interest savings accounts and put that amount into the account each fortnight, that way I know the bills are covered, regardless of when they actual bill is issued.

    I just checked a few of mine and they do vary a bit. 79, 87 and 99 days. Wow, i really never noticed before.

    I pay my bills off weekly-usually $20-30 so they are generally paid off/in credit when i get them so i guess i don't really need to pay a lot of attention to them.
