Your Week With Amber: While your day-to-day price is what will catch your attention at first, it's important to see how being with Amber plays out for you over the longer term. With Your Week With Amber, a weekly report, you can track your average usage price, energy usage, renewables usage and feed-in tariff across the last week, month or three months. It's easy to share with family and friends too. 

Split between meters: Easily see how much your meters have imported or exported each day.

See the benchmark: Check at a glance whether your usage is up or down compared to normal.


Bill overview

See your latest bill: See what you owe, what your energy usage cost you, and how much you earned if you have solar or a battery. 

View your billing history: Keep tabs on your billing costs with Amber over time, all within the app.


Price notifications

Anytime you want to know what's going on with pricing, you can check the app.

But if you’d like to receive custom price notifications when prices hit a particular level, head to Settings and tell us your price threshold.

(Be aware that setting up ‘Do not disturb’ modes on your devices can limit your ability to receive notifications)

How this works:

  • When the price goes above your threshold, you’ll get notified by text and/or email.
  • You may want to shift any heavy energy usage away from these times
  • Be aware that the price could rise beyond the price it is when you’re first alerted, so it’s a good idea to keep an eye on prices for a little while after you receive the alert, because things can change fast.
