Energy Procurement

We check your account structure and network tariff is correct. By rectifying this we achieve considerable cost reductions. We then tender at the optimal time to obtain the most competitive rates.

How the different services combine
to deliver a great client outcome

 

Account Structure Optimisation

Volatility in retail energy market regulations and tariffs and fluctuations in site specific energy consumption is resulting in energy tariff allocation anomalies for many business electricity consumers. Our detailed analysis of your consumption patterns and billing data will reveal if you are paying out more than you should due to being on an unsuitable account setup.

Leading Edge’s experts have a comprehensive understanding of the criteria driving market and tariff suitability. As soon as we identify tariff plan anomalies, we will present you with a detailed report and an optimised setup for your business.

We will instruct the retailer to re-structure your account accordingly – which will deliver immediate financial savings of between 7-15%. We can do this before even putting your contract out to tender, which will ultimately result in even more savings.

Network Tariff Optimisation

Network charges account for about half of the average electricity bill and through our Network Tariff Optimisation service, we will make sure that you are not paying more than you need to.

Network charges are set by distributors to offset the cost of delivering electricity through poles and wires from generator to customer. They are approved by the Australian Energy Regulator.

Each distributor has its own set of complicated tariffs and charges and many businesses make the mistake of accepting the costs at face value. Or experts at Leading Edge have the knowledge base to sift through the data and regularly review the tariffs that your business is paying.

We will compare the tariff that you are currently paying against all other available tariffs to make sure that the charges you are paying are the lowest possible charges by comparing your usage data against the eligibility criteria for every other tariff. Leading Edge experts will then send you a report that is easy to understand, outlining if and where savings can be made.

We will then contact your supplier and renegotiate terms and request that your business is put onto a lower tariff scheme.
