Tasmanian Energy Update

October 2015

Welcome to our 8th Birthday Edition where we are celebrating saving our Tasmanian clients $8M in energy costs. We thank those of you who took the time to complete our client satisfaction survey. We were most impressed with the individual commentary which had a strong and recurring theme of fast response times and effective communication. You said our top 3 attributes are:

1. Reliable, we do what we say we will.
2. Useful, our services help our clients.
3. High quality service providers.

Thank you very much!

In mid July 2014, around the time of Repeal of the Carbon Tax, Tasmanian forward wholesale electricity prices for Calendar 2016 set a bottom point of just below 4c/kWh. Following which, Tasmanian prices demonstrated a modest upwards trend until this September, which has seen National prices rally and Tasmanian wholesale pricing for Calendar 2016 hit just above 5c/kWh. Whilst past performance is no indication of future results this trend has seen many clients ask us to test the market for their contract renewals well before existing contract expiry dates. This strategy has allowed our clients to update their energy budget forecasts and where satisfactory, lock in future energy rates. For more information call Marc now on 0418 596 162.
