Commercial Energy for Manufacturers
The Manufacturing Industry
Australia's manufacturing currently contributes to about six percent of Australia's GDP and supports over 850,000+ jobs.
The government has recognised the importance of the manufacturing industry to the Australian economy. However, this industry has declined, and has decreased more in comparison to other advanced economies. However, energy costs are still continuing to rise which has been damaging for the manufacturing industry, especially when combined with the pressures of the COVID-19 pandemic.
How can MIC Energy Brokers help?
The tender process we provide is completely free and you are under no obligation to advance with any of the offers we present to you. You will also receive full transparency when it comes to this tender process as we will provide a full breakdown comparison for any offers we receive on your behalf, so you can see exactly what your expenditure will be.
Network Tariff Reviews
Your tariffs can be changed by your network distributor, usually at the start of the Australian financial year on July 1. However, it is unlikely that your retailer will proactively review these charges and, in some circumstances, a one-off event that increases your demand/load could increase your Network Tariff charges, resulting in you ending up on the wrong tariff and you may be overpaying. The MIC Broker team can assist by reviewing your network tariff to potentially reduce your network charges. Read more about Network Tariff Reviews here

How has MIC helped reduce energy bills for businesses?
A Leading Food Innovator worked with Lucy Block of MIC Energy Brokers to review their commercial energy contract, as part of this process, Lucy conducted their annual network tariff review and found that as the company had ceased production of one of their products in January 2020, the electrical usage in this site had diminished significantly yet the demand charges were still being applied by the network. MIC Energy Brokers was able to submit a demand reset application to the network based on current usage, and by backdating the reset, the company received a credit on their monthly bill for $14,000 and future savings of $150,000 per annum.
