You choose where you shop, so why not do the same when buying electricity?
How do you gain access to the lowest cost electricity contract? And how do you assess which one is the best deal for your site? One option is to engage an energy broker – and that’s where Enigin’s free service comes in.
A surprising number of business owners aren’t aware that they can shop around for their electricity retailer to find the best value contract to suit them. Unless you’re a residential household, you may be classed as a “contestable” supply customer (consuming more than 50 MWh of electricity each year), which means that you’re not just tied to Synergy but can access a whole range of alternative electricity retailers!
In 2015, Enigin completed a review of electricity supply for the owners of a Perth CBD office building.
This client had first engaged us to review strategies for reducing the operational expenditure of their site (through an Energy Management Plan) and one that we recommended was reviewing their electricity supply tariff.
We brought the offer to market and obtained five competitive quotes from retailers, then analysed each proposal to make sense of the figures, appraise the T&Cs and make a judgment on the best deal for our client’s electricity consumption profile. We presented our findings to the client (the table below summarises this) who proceeded to engage the supplier with the best value quote – and enjoy a brand new Electricity Supply Agreement (ESA) with the peace of mind that their savings were optimised!
The tariff offered directly to the client by the existing retailer would have resulted in savings of $69,903 over a period of two years. By engaging Enigin to complete the brokering of a new electricity supply agreement, a further $95,261 of savings was forecast over a two year period.
The return on investment is immediate as the client pays Enigin no fees for this service. Our brokering fees are paid by the retailer and not by the client, resulting in a no-cost benefit to all of our electricity supply clients.
With these savings up for grabs and no penny to pay, why not engage an energy broker today?
