Leading Edge Energy secured a $12,900 refund for the Port Campbell Hotel in Victoria after opening a successful case against their energy provider for overcharging.
Our client took over the leasehold for the Port Campbell and requested to sign up to a small business plan with Origin Energy.
Origin confirmed that he had signed up to the small business plan, however, he was actually put onto large business default rates at 27.5c/kwh for peak, and 15c/kwh for off-peak, plus all other charges.
What we did
When we audited the client’s bill, it became apparent that they had been put on the incorrect default rates. Leading Edge Energy opened a case with Origin and informed them that our client had been paying more than he should have because he was on the wrong contract.
Origin Energy agreed to provide a backdated large market contract to March 2017, a big win for our client!
Origin Energy issued a refund the owner of the Port Campbell Hotel with $12,900 which was added to his account in credit. To put this into perspective, his annual spend is around $30,000, so effectively they received half a year of energy credit back.
