5 Tips To Save Your Business From Energy Price Rises

5 Tips To Save Your Business From Energy Price Rises

Every year on July 1 most energy retailers will change their energy rates for Australian businesses in New South Wales, Queensland and South Australia.

So what steps can you take to start saving money for your business?

1. Replace bulbs

Quality LED light bulbs last 5 to 10 times longer than halogen light bulbs and consume 25% of the energy to produce the same light output.

2. Check the stars 

If you’re looking to introduce or replace outdated appliances in your business it’s key to check the power star rating. Invest in appliances and devices that are as energy-efficient as possible.

3. Standby

From monitors to laptop chargers – devices on ‘standby’ may be responsible for up to 10% of your business energy consumption. Take charge of energy efficiency in your office and ask your team to unplug overnight.

4. Use the sun

Solar energy is a clean, free, and renewable energy source. Solar panels might require an investment up front but that cost can be recovered within few years if solar energy is used to its full extent. There are also solar rebates in some areas that you might be able to take advantage of.

5. Compare and save

Radisson Blu Saves $100,000 on Energy Bills

Mitchell Turner the Hotel Manager for the Radisson Blue Sydney shares how Make it Cheaper saved the hotel over $100,000 on energy bills.

“The energy usage here at the Radisson Blu Sydney is quite significant, it’s something that we look at day to day as a company. We were looking at renewing our electricity contract this year where we were facing costs of 128% increase which wasn’t budgeted within the hotel. Make it Cheaper reached out to us and we were able to get a quick, easy two week turnaround where they went out to market and were able to bring us back a few different offers where we chose the best one for the business.

Through our new energy contract which we got through Make it Cheaper we are saving about $34,000 per year and over the next three years, we’re saving over $100,000. Those types of savings go back into the business ”
