New Metering Contracts (Large Business Electricity Accounts)

Some energy brokers take advantage of their customers and advise them to sign a new metering agreement. They make customers believe that it is part of energy contract renewal process. As a result, when customer receive their first electricity invoice in new contract, their monthly meter fee may have increased to up to 4 times.

Analysis of Renewable / Environmental Charges (Large Business Electricity Accounts)

Renewable / environmental charges vary between energy retailers. Although they are only 10-20% of the total energy invoice, but can make significant difference in the overall energy cost. Depending on site's annual energy load, AUSEMS can source best possible renewable / environmental charges for businesses in the form of Renewable / Environmental Certificates. These certificates provides certainty to freeze these charges for of up to 5 years.

Power Factor Correction Units (Large Business Electricity Accounts)

In order for a commercial site to operate with maximum amount of electricity it is receiving, it must have a Power Factor Correction (PFC) units installed. The higher the Power Factor, the more effectively electrical power is being utilised. But if the Power Factor is lower, then the electricity consumption at the site will be more inefficient. PCF reduces the gap between kVA and kW which eventually lower the Demand and Capacity Charges. As a result of this, customer can benefit from reduction in Demand and Capacity charges which may lead to reduction in overall energy charges.

AUSEMS provides you with effective Power Factor evaluation that reduces overall energy consumption.
