The Australian Industry Group recently conducted a survey of over 300 businesses on their use of electricity and their energy costs. While the organization’s report recommended more government engagement with businesses, Alan Belkin, Electricity Wizard’s CEO, reveals one simple, free, step that may yield immediate electricity cost reductions for businesses.
Electricity Wizard offers a free electricity price comparison service that is not limited to domestic consumers, but will assist business to get better electricity prices as well.
“Improving energy efficiency, a key recommendation of the Ai Group report, is without doubt vital in lowering electricity and gas costs of businesses of all sizes” said Mr Belkin. “However businesses often become complacent about their energy providers, staying with their current one out of habit.”
“By taking the initiative of requesting a free electricity price comparison from us, businesses could find immediate savings” continued Mr Belkin. “And combining this step, with the implementation of energy saving strategies, will deliver long-term savings, regardless of the size of the business.”
The Ai Group report ‘Energy shock: Pressure Mounts for Efficiency Action’ reveals that three-quarters of respondents have, or are planning to, implement actions to improve their energy efficiency.
“Such actions are positive and are to be applauded, but any bottom line benefits are increasingly thwarted by the increasing electricity prices in Australia - which are principally the result of the high cost of service delivery in a sparsely populated country of this size” said Mr Belkin.
“Getting a better electricity price must form part of any business strategy for reducing energy costs” he said.
