Marrickville Freezers’ energy contract was up for renewal and we identified that going to the wholesale market would result in a better deal than what retailers were offering.
Leading Edge Energy secured a deal which came back was $8,000 cheaper than the next best offer by a retailer.
We also managed to identify a saving of $1,000 per annum at one of their smaller sites through a simple energy tender.
The contract recommended by Leading Edge Energy was one with flexible load clauses, eliminating hefty penalties and fees when winding down their consumption for the move to new premises.
We helped Sydney Freezers reduce their energy spend by a whopping $85,000 per annum by tendering for energy on the wholesale market.

We tendered for energy on the wholesale market at the first favourable opportunity and reduced their annual energy spend on this account by $67,000. Sydney Freezers also had a secondary small business account which was set up incorrectly.
We moved the account to a large business account which resulted in an additional direct saving of $18,000 per annum.
