When choosing an energy plan for your business, you should compare the plans available to you and the power companies providing the plans.
Compare energy plans
When comparing energy plans, look at all the rates in conjunction with each other rather than focusing on one in isolation. Just because a plan has a very low usage rate, for example, doesn’t mean it will work out cheapest if it has a higher daily rate.
Is supporting renewable energy important to you and your business? Chances are there are green energy plans available to you. Do your research and understand the difference between GreenPower accredited plans and carbon-neutral plans so you can choose the right plan for your business.
Some energy plans come with smart tools to give you better visibility and control of your organisations’ energy usage. Check what tools and services are on offer before you switch - not all are made equal.
Compare energy providers
Going green is about more than just choosing a GreenPower energy plan. Look into the power company offering the plan - do they own fossil fuel energy generation? Three of the top four biggest greenhouse gas emitters in Australia are power companies.
If supporting Australian owned and operated businesses is important to you, find out who owns the energy provider you’re considering. Where is their head office located? What about their customer service teams? Not sure? Just ask.
Use the government comparison website
Energy Made Easy (and Victorian Energy Compare for Victorian-based businesses) is a great online comparison tool that can help you compare energy offers. It’s best to stick to the government-run comparison websites because commercial comparison websites don’t always present all of the available offers.
