3 things you must consider when choosing an energy provider for your business
When it comes to choosing an energy provider for your business, it’s worth taking multiple factors into account, not just cheaper rates. You will likely want to work with an energy retailer that offers great customer service and support when you need it and has a focus on renewable energy options along with grid electricity and gas. You will also want the confidence that your energy provider has positive reviews and will be around to help you during the difficult times.
1. A customer service ethos
“Sometimes a cheap price is not a good enough reason to stick with your current provider,” said Henry Cooke, energy expert and Amanda Energy director.
“Your energy provider should take a genuine interest in your business, understand your objectives and work with you to reduce energy costs going forward,” said Mr Cooke.
What separates Amanda Energy from other energy companies is our brainpower. We take the time to learn about your business, big or small, and do a 360-degree energy analysis using Western Power and ATCO data.

2. A focus on renewables
Renewable energy is here to stay, with 24% of Australia’s electricity generation coming from renewable energy in 20191. Commercial solar in Perth now plays a big part in reducing energy costs.
“The more your energy provider plays in the renewable energy space, the bigger benefit it will be to you,” commented Mr Cooke.
KPMG predict that in the next 20 years there will be a global transition to the use of renewable energy, which will be supported by increased investment in renewable energy technology and its reduced cost.
Amanda Energy is an Approved Solar Retailer with the Clean Energy Council (CEC). This ensures Amanda Energy meets the code of conduct and employs best practice to protect customers. Make sure you choose an energy provider that is also an approved CEC solar retailer not just an installer.
