The Capricorn Hotel in Queensland is now paying energy rates that are $5,000 per month – $60k per annum – cheaper than their previous contract after Leading Edge Energy took over their procurement process.
The Capricorn Hotel engaged Leading Edge to analyse their energy accounts as the exorbitant bills they were receiving were putting pressure on the business.
Leading Edge took its detailed approach and found that the hotel would benefit from moving from a small business energy plan to a large business contracted plan.
The Capricorn Hotel was on a plan with Ergon on a bundled bill and paying very high rates. When you factor in that the business is energy-intensive, you have a recipe for disaster.
Leading Edge Energy carried out a competitive tendering process and tracked the National Energy Market movements to obtain the best possible rates available for the Capricorn Hotel.
A situation we come across quite often is that businesses are put on default rates when there are alternatives on the market.
