Leading Edge Energy helped knock $16,000 per year off E.W.H Food Service’s energy spend.
One of E.W.H’s sites at Beresfield was on an incorrect Network Tariff and we contacted the distributor register the anomaly and oversaw the switch to the correct tariff. This resulted in a saving of approximately $1,200 per month, or $14,000 per year.
One of the company’s sites had two separate electricity meters, which also meant that they had two electricity accounts.
We combined the meters to consolidate into one energy account giving a saving of $2,000 per annum on fixed charges.

Our Energy Management Consultants secured a wholesale energy contract for Padstow Food Service which was $1,000 per annum cheaper than two broker offers.
Padstow Food Service was a Leading Edge Client, but decided to try their luck with another energy retailer who promised them they could deliver better savings.

Two other brokers were involved, but our contract was $1,000 per annum cheaper than the nearest offer.

The tender resulted in a wholesale energy offering which was between $2,000 and $4,000 cheaper than what was being quoted by the retailers.
As a result of moving to a wholesale contract, Going Gourmet secured a deal which was $2,000 cheaper than the nearest offer.

The new retail plan $2,000 cheaper per annum than the one they were on and offered the best solar feed-in rate at 12.5c/kWh for power fed back to the grid.
The Baker is saving directly on energy costs,and reaping more money for selling surplus power.
P.E Foods are paying $9,000 per annum less for electricity after Leading Edge Energy secured a wholesale market contract.
They were being quoted prices for energy by retailers under the Ergon Network in Queensland.
Because retailers offered them nothing different, P.E. Foods were under the impression that the Ergon offers were the only ones available to them.

Energy prices on the wholesale market were also favourable.
As a result, I Cook Foods are paying $1,000 less per annum than they would have if they had opted for a retailer offer for the next 36 months.
In total, I Cook Foods are spending $6,500 per annum less after entering into wholesale contracts brokered by Leading Edge Energy.
Innova Foods made a direct saving of $4,250 per annum after Leading Edge Energy found and secured a cheaper natural gas contract.
The company was on a competitive natural gas plan, but we found a better offer through tender.
Innova Foods were also looking to secure a wholesale market energy tender, but significant market increases made the option not financially beneficial.
The company had a quote offered by their retailer which was more advantageous, so we advised them to sign the direct offer while it was still valid.
