The client: A large mining company in Western Australia.
The challenge: The client identified that their meter was not measuring electricity usage accurately which had resulted in them being significantly overcharged for a period of around 18 months. They notified their retailer and the meter error was corrected. However, the client was unable to ascertain the amount they had been overcharged historically, and was unsure whether they were entitled to reimbursement under their contract and the market rules. Their situation was further complicated as they had changed energy retailer during this 18 month period.
The solution: The client contacted Trans Tasman Energy Group, who was able to establish the amount of the overcharge, build a case for reimbursement and negotiate with the client’s energy retailer and distributor that returned approximately $500,000 to the client.
The client: A National Retail Chain
The challenge: With over 200 sites nationally and an aggressive expansion program, the cost of energy was a significant cost for this client. They were looking for ways to reduce costs, manage their energy requirements prudently, and ensure they were getting the best rates for electricity.
The solution: The client contacted Trans Tasman Energy Group, who developed and implemented a roll-in strategy for new sites at contract rates and a cost-saving metering contract initiative. We were also able to reduce their costs in embedded electricity networks and other energy saving projects, delivering total savings of more than $1 million.
