Able Hawkesbury River - I saved $5,000 on my energy bills

Able Hawkesbury River Houseboats, NSW

"There is no reward for loyalty when it comes to energy providers and through a quick phone call with Make it Cheaper I was able to save $5k for my business. I'll be able to use this money to keep improving our product and our service. The cost of upgrades are really high with house boats and so it will make life much easier for us. Thanks again to Make it Cheaper and the Boating Industry Association for offering this service".

Dona Farms, SA - I saved $6,000 on my energy bills

Donava Farms, SA

This is what Ros had to say: You were very helpful, it was a very quick and fast process. Considering all of the different accounts I have it was no fuss – very simple. I was surprised with such a huge saving. Each quarter when the electricity bill comes in I hate it because it’s a fair chunk of our income. I find with electricity it’s hard to compare apples with apples with all of the different rates, tariffs etc. it makes it very hard to work out. Which is why companies like Make it Cheaper help me find the best deal.
