Simply Energy charges an average of 31.41 cents per kWh but you can choose flex pricing:
40.7 cents between 7 am and 11 pm, 22.4 cents between 11 pm to 7 am
This makes sense if you draw more electricity between 11 pm and 7 am then it makes sense else not.

The following points to note: [source]
- We recommend liquid applied membrane systems for the Australian climate as the most practical and economic products for a secure job.
- Seamless liquid applied membranes have become the ultimate solution for deck waterproofing.
- A basic principle with new construction buildings is to view the job with the perspective that building movement will occur and therefore to secure all wall/floor joints, drains, balustrade, water exit points, hobs, sheet joints and movement joints.
- Re-Grouting and sealing is definitely not the way to repair a leaking balcony that has an existing defective membrane.
- Sealing the existing tiles would probably stop or slow down leaks for a while until it moves and cracks the grout again then it would start to leak.
- Laying a new waterproof membrane over a clean existing surface can work if the existing tiles are soundly fixed.
- There may be some blistering with the new membrane due to water vapour trapped within but that is easily dealt with – balcony repairs just take longer while you wait for the vapour to dissipate ( with the new membrane over the top).
- Many balcony designs have limited fall and unless the waterproof membrane can “hold” water they will break down over time.
- Liquid Rubber Membrane which is designed to “ponding water”, unlike a great deal of other membranes.
