Also, please remember an important factor when looking at your bills. Summer average is around 42kws per day for most of our 6.6kw systems, and 26kw is the average in winter. Good news for Australians, as our bills are mostly largest in the summer months when the aircon has to work harder.

Please see an example below from a standard google search. This bill was for a 5kw system according to the supporting article.
