Commercial Energy for the Agriculture Industry

Energy Usage for the Agriculture Industry

The price of energy has risen over the last 5 years and is taking up a larger proportion of production costs for many agricultural businesses. The issue surrounding the price of energy has been amplified by the fact that many in the industry are opting for energy-intensive practices.

There has been a focus from state governments to improve the energy efficiency of many agricultural processes. One example is the Agriculture Energy Investment Plan which was launched in 2020 by the Victorian Government which aimed to energy efficiency and energy productivity within the sector. Despite these plans being introduced, many agricultural businesses are still struggling with the rising energy prices. Read on to see how the specialist MIC Energy Broker team can help your agricultural business.

How can MIC Energy Brokers help?

Competitive commercial rates

MIC Energy Brokers have over 10 years of experience in securing competitive rates. Having assisted over 45,000 businesses with their energy rates, be assured that you will be speaking to an expert in the field of agricultural energy.

Leading retailers

Our commercial team partners with 10+ electricity and gas retailers. These range from some of the largest retailers in the Australian market, to smaller niche energy specialists. Having this wide range of retailers as partners allows us to meet your criteria, whether you are looking for retailers that are Australian owned, or retailers that offer green energy solutions.

Blend and Extend

With the ongoing impacts of COVID-19 causing harm to many agricultural businesses, blend and extend contracts have been an effective short-term solution in cost-saving. For some Origin, Momentum, and Engie customers, we are able to renegotiate the energy rates within the contract period when there is a downward movement in the market. This can be arranged so it is possible to receive lower rates as soon as the following month, if you agree to extend your contract by a minimum term of one year.

Transparency

You'll get a full breakdown comparison of every offer we receive on your behalf. So you can see exactly what you would pay - and what you would receive - with each energy supplier.

Account Management

Our team of commercial and multisite energy procurement specialists are experts in understanding the cost you will incur, and can develop electricity and gas procurement solutions based on the needs of your business.

Tender Process

The tender process we provide is completely free and you are under no obligation to advance with any of the offers we present to you. You will also receive full transparency when it comes to this tender process as we will provide a full breakdown comparison for any offers we receive on your behalf, so you can see exactly what your expenditure will be.

Green Energy

More agricultural businesses are committed to carbon neutral and green energy incentives. Our team can tailor your energy procurement solution to include green energy options.

Multiple Locations

If your agricultural business operates across multiple sites, having the same retailer might not always be a competitive option. The MIC Energy Broker Multisite experts can review your energy requirements by location and usage to find you the right solution.

Network Tariff Reviews

Your tariffs can be changed by your network distributor, usually at the start of the Australian financial year on July 1. However, it is unlikely that your retailer will proactively review these charges and, in some circumstances, a one-off event that increases your demand/load could increase your Network Tariff charges, resulting in you ending up on the wrong tariff and you may be overpaying. The MIC Broker team can assist by reviewing your network tariff to potentially reduce your network charges. Read more about Network Tariff Reviews here
