Electricity Contract Renewals
Understanding when to change providers and the benefits of doing so can be daunting. If you don’t have a strategy to keep in front of anticipated market shifts you could be procuring in a significantly higher market. If your site is already on a market contract, we will collate usage data, compile an accurate business profile and tender this to our leading retailers. Our automated online tendering service will evaluate the quotes and prepare an analysis report with the contract offers best suited to your business. Our service is designed to secure the most competitive electricity pricing available on the day through forward contracting.
If your system is reaching its 10 year option to re-negotiate, speak with our specialist who can assist in the re-negotiation or provide you with further options such as owning the equipment and re-billing your own hot-water. There are many options for you to chose the best for your situation.
Developer ‘Greenfield’ consultation
We are independent consultants working to find you the best possible solution for your development. Our team start liaising with you right from the project design phase. Avoid the pitfalls of being offered infrastructure or subsidies without knowing the impact to the end user.
Embedded Network Analysis and Conversion
We can help determine if your site is suitable for an embedded network. An independent viability assessment with monitoring equipment will determine if your building can consolidate and implement an Embedded Network. We consult with owners to explain all the advantages and disadvantages of going through this process. This is only applicable for certain size buildings where usage can be combined through one point. A bulk bill is supplied to the site and the electricity is billed at an agreed rate. Savings can be significant, but there is a comprehensive process and AER regulations that need to be adhered to before conversion can progress. Speak to one of our Embedded Network Specialists.
