How we helped
With such a high demand for energy usage, it was essential for Re.Group to ensure their energy bills are as optimised as possible. By partnering with Choice Energy, their initial four sites are set to save a combined $500,000 on costs, with 8 more sites to come.
Re.Group is set to save approx $500,000 over 3 years
4 Initial Sites
The remaining 8 sites have negotiated savings as well as timing the market to minimise further rate rises.
“Choice Energy was introduced to our business via a relationship with an industry body. Our broker, David Marsh is a valued business partner. He has helped negotiate all of our energy requirements across the three states we have recycling facilities.
Choice Energy’s insights into the electricity and gas markets allowed us to lock in pricing that has resulted in significant savings by protecting our business from the recent price volatility.”
