Energy Procurement

Leading Edge Energy’s energy procurement services include a full account structure and network tariff audit. If we find that your business is on an incorrect and more expensive tariff, we rectify this to get considerable reductions and then tender at the optimal time to obtain the most competitive rates.

Review & Optimise Tariff Structures

Let us deal with the energy retailers on your behalf to ensure you have the best possible electricity and gas tariff structures for your business.

The energy experts at Leading Edge Energy have a deep understanding of what drives energy markets and tariffs. The energy market is complex and subject to volatility in regulations and rates, which can result in anomalies in costs for commercial and industrial customers.

Our energy procurement services provide you with a detailed analysis of your usage patterns and billing data. We analyse this data to determine if you are paying more than you should be.

As soon as we identify tariff plan anomalies, we present you with a detailed report and a proposed solution for your business. Based on these findings, we will instruct the retailer to restructure your account to deliver immediate financial savings. We can do this before even putting your contract out to tender, which will drive even further savings.

  • Save time dealing with energy retailers
  • Expert advice on optimisation opportunities
  • Detailed forecast and report of quantified savings

Network Tariff Optimisation

Network charges are set by distributors to offset the costs of delivering electricity from the generator to retail customers. You might have heard these referred to as the “poles and wires”, and they are overseen by the Australian Energy Regulator. Network costs make up about half of the average electricity bill. Through our Network Tariff Optimisation service, we make sure that you pay only what you owe.

Because distributors have their own set of complicated tariffs and charges, many businesses accept the costs at face value, not realizing there are significant savings to be made if you ask the right questions. That’s where Leading Edge Energy can help – we have the expertise in sifting through the data and regularly reviewing the fees your company pays to ensure you never pay more than you need to.

Doing this allows us to check if your current tariff is the lowest possible rate based on how your usage data compares with the eligibility criteria for every other tariff. Our experts will then send you an easy-to-understand report that outlines if and where savings can be made.

Next, we contact your supplier, renegotiate terms, and request that your business’ account be put onto a lower tariff scheme.

  • Expert advice on tariff optimisation
  • Detailed forecast and report of quantified savings
  • Save time dealing with energy providers

How we’ve helped others

Blackwall Real Estate Group approached Leading Edge Energy to take a look at energy usage and expenditure across multiple business sites. We immediately identified an opportunity to group the various sites together to access wholesale rates in the energy market. We took this to tender on the wholesale market and calculated that Blackwall’s would achieve 20% savings on average, or $150,000.
