Keep on top of the energy market
Regularly review your contract and invoices to ensure you're getting the best deal for your business.
Get your energy data
Get your energy data for the last 12 months from your bills or by asking your energy retailer. This will show you how much power you use and if it varies throughout the year. Use this data to create a before-and-after snapshot of your power costs after implementing savings.
Compare energy offers
Victorian Energy Compare can help you find the best energy deal. You will need to be on an energy retail offer and have been at your premises for more than 12 months.
Each energy retailer will offer a range of contracts, each with set terms. If your business spends less than $20,000 per annum, you can use arrangements similar to households to get a new energy contract.

Use an energy broker
If your business spends more than $50,000 annually on power, it may pay you to call in an energy broker.
They are independent, understand commercial energy, business and market trends and can help you get the best deal. Odds are they’ll save your business more money than you can. Getting the cheapest price may be your top priority, but terms and conditions can be equally important. They should be carefully reviewed and negotiated, especially in the volatile gas and electricity market.
Find an energy broker through word of mouth or the Energy Efficiency Council.
