Case Studies

Case Study: Moore’s Tyres

Moore’s Tyres at Wulkaraka is a tyre supplier and fitter specialising in tyre solutions for the transport industry. Moore’s engaged e4b just prior to expiry of their existing retail supply contract in early 2015.

Based on an analysis of the site’s historical meter data, e4b determined that one of the business’s connection points was incorrectly assigned to a large customer demand-based network tariff. e4b subsequently managed a network tariff change request, ran a competitive tender, and negotiated a new retail energy supply agreement on behalf of the owners that resulted in savings of more than 44%.

e4b also successfully negotiated a refund from the distribution network owner of more than $11,000 due to the incorrect tariff assignment.
