How to slash energy costs for your Newcastle business


Newcastle is changing. Once known as “The Steel City” for its impressive industrial sector, public perception of Newcastle has shifted in recent years. While the Manufacturing sector maintains the highest economic output in the region, it is the Health Care & Social Assistance sector that employs the most people. Population numbers have steadily increased along with Building Approvals and Gross Regional Product, making Newcastle a hotbed of business and economic development. This shift has made Newcastle a more financially lucrative proposition for investors, but has created a challenge for the businesses that already exist here. Not only have more competitors burst onto the scene, but what it takes to maintain a business in the region has also changed.

For many businesses in Newcastle, energy costs can be one of the largest outgoings that impact their bottom line, however it is not always easy to identify a cheaper plan due to each retailer having different time of day rates, discounts, and your location can also impact pricing.
