Choice Energy specialise in reducing the energy costs of our Commercial and Industrial (C&I) customers, as well as small market, or small to medium (SME) customers. SME energy bills lend themselves well to being bundled up as part of a group tender.
By forming buying groups we create economies of scale for better buying power so that you pay less.
Group tenders enable businesses with lower energy consumption to leverage the benefits of a bigger buying group. Bulk buying energy opens SME customers up to broader market opportunities than you would have otherwise. Through aggregation with other businesses like yours, any risk and all the benefits of cost reduction are shared across the group.
Group Tenders for Commercial and Industrial Businesses (C&I)
If you’re a high energy user with constant demand, energy providers may already view you as the ideal customer. But when you combine with similar businesses in a group energy tender, you become a force of opportunity. We’ll put your group tender before up to fourteen of Australia’s best energy providers, creating competition that sees optimised rates presented to you and the other members of the group tender.
- $2 million in combined savings (over new two-year retail contracts secured)
- Savings for 47 hotels
- No cost to participate
- The contract secured was $377,000 cheaper than another firm
- The contract was 15% cheaper than if secured outside a group buying arrangement.
How do I know if I’m eligible for a group tender?
If you’ve got 3 months to two years left on your current agreement, it is highly likely you are eligible to participate in a group tender.
How do you group businesses to run a tender?
We’ve worked with industry groups, such as associations, to run incredibly successful group tenders. If you are a part of a group or association, reach out to us today and we would be happy to assist with bringing a group tender opportunity to your association that is no-cost and could see thousands of savings for you and your fellow business owners.
Am I obliged to go ahead with the tender once Choice Energy has run it?
Not at all: We present the opportunities given to you, and it is up to you to make the call on the agreement.
