The benefits of shopping around for better energy deals

1 Nov 2023 |

With rising living pressures, many Australians have been looking for ways to cut costs. Whether by reviewing monthly expenses or shopping around for better deals on utilities, there is no doubt that reducing spending is at the front of everyone’s mind.

This is especially true for small to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). Finding reliable and cost-effective suppliers isn’t only important in keeping costs down – it can be essential to the long-term success of a business.

However, we have observed that unlike businesses in other Australian states, businesses in Queensland are not taking advantage of better energy prices simply because they haven’t been encouraged to compare energy deals from different providers.

Queensland SMEs are exposed to potentially higher energy prices instead of shopping around with different electricity retailers for better energy offers.

Our General Manager, Duncan Jacklin, says this lack of awareness adds to already high prices and businesses are suffering the brunt.
By simply taking the time to review their next energy bill, businesses can:

  • Identify areas to reduce energy usage and thereby increase the business’ profit margin
  • Better understand their energy usage and consumption habits and identify ways to use energy more effectively
  • Increase the efficiency of their business energy use and thus decrease their impact on the environment
  • Discover different ways to bundle up their costs by comparing various energy retailers and what they offer

Although the Queensland Government’s Energy Bill Relief program provides some support in the form of a $650 rebate for small businesses, it’s doing the work of shopping around and comparing energy deals that will make the biggest difference in costs.

Blue NRG is committed to playing a pivotal role in this issue by providing a better deal for Queensland-based SMEs. This deal is approximately 10% more cost-effective than the current default market offer.

Blue NRG only services businesses – and as specialists, we are dedicated to offering the best deals for our customers and prioritising cost-effectiveness. Over the last decade, we’ve proudly helped businesses across Australia identify more than $3.3 million in savings on their energy bills.

We understand the incredible impact these savings can have on Australian business owners, especially in the face of increasing inflation rates, and we aim to help businesses succeed.

Currently operating in Southeast Queensland, Blue NRG is determined to help the state’s SMEs understand where they could save money on their energy bills. SME owners can now upload a recent bill and compare energy prices via the compare now button below
