Energy saving opportunities through energy brokering in 2024

Over the last few years, rising energy costs have put extra pressure on businesses who already face a range of operational challenges from lower sales, inflation, higher interest rates, operational costs and more.

With a spate of coal station closures scheduled over the coming years alongside delays of replacement renewable capacity online putting pressure on the grid, some operators are wondering if there is any value in engaging a broker for their business energy.

But in 2024, the positive news is - business operators have some unique opportunities to help tackle the increase in costs they have seen on their energy bills over the last few years and ride the uncertainty of the next few years, but they should act quickly.

Expert energy strategist on your side, in good times and bad

When business is good, expert opinions are always valuable. But when times are tough, expert opinions and advice is more important than ever.

Your dedicated Choice Energy broker is here to understand your business, and uncover opportunities that help you save more on your energy bills.

That means not only helping you make contract choices for your grid energy usage that make sense for a high or low market, but also ensuring your usage is optimised through saving opportunities you may not be aware of such as metering and monitoring, network tariff and demand analysis, and significant savers like commercial solar energy.

Identifying market saving opportunities when the time is right

Working with a Choice Energy broker is an opportunity to know your business is protected, but with no obligations.

With a fluctuating wholesale electricity market, as a business owner you're not expected to follow or understand these trends, but they directly impact energy bill rates, especially for large-market sites and therefore, timing your business electricity contract is critical.

Your dedicated energy broker keeps track of your current and upcoming contracts, meaning that you can stay focused on growing your business, knowing that you’ve got energy market educated eyes on the volatile market may affect your business as you finish or enter a new agreement.

"Engaging a broker now is particularly relevant as we're seeing significantly lower wholesale market rates across the country compared to last year that can be capitalised on."

When we saw lower wholsale rates during COVID-19, Choice Energy locked in extremely favourable energy agreements for extended periods of time for some of our clients, allowing them to ride out the “bounce back” of higher energy costs with their locked in lower rate

One of these clients was Fyna Foods. And we're doing this right now for many clients.

Just touching base to say a massive thank you!!!

The team at Choice Energy were very proactive in November 2020 and extended our contract that ended in August 2021 for 3 years to August 2024. With the current increase in energy prices we are so grateful that you & the team kept us updated with energy prices and recommended we fix mid way through the existing contract.
