TRU Energy Victorian Price Hike
Showing what business customer might be expecting from other
retailers, TRU Energy announced a range of electricity price
increases for all of it's Victorian Customers in late May 2010,
with customers expecting to see higher charges on their bills over
the next 6-12 weeks.
The typical business is being hit by a 3.9% increase, however, customers who have traditionally been supplied by TRU Energy within the SP Ausnet area are seeing price increases of anywhere from 5.5% and 9.9%.
It's anticipated that most other suppliers will follow in TRU's steps over the coming weeks, but it remains to be seen whether they will be of the same scale.
Traditionally, retailers will pass on cost increases in the regions where they have the highest volume of customers - in this case SP Ausnet. This often allows competitors to sharpen their pricing and offer more aggresive discounts, to win over customers.
Tim Wolfenden, CEO of
MakeItCheaper.com.au comments: "Business customers are getting more
and more used to seeing their bills go, so this change by TRU
Energy will comes as no surprise.
It's essential that customers stay on top of these movements, and look to find savings to offset these increases by switching to a cheaper deal.
We would certainly recommend that existing TRU Energy customers in the SP Ausnet region check to see how much they can save by switching, especially if they've seen a hike of nearly 10%."
