Energy Locals is proud to celebrate the 2017 Community Energy Congress with an exclusive offer for attendees.
We’re a social enterprise that’s made up of a small group of people with lots of experience of energy retailing, who want to use that to make energy fairer, cleaner and cheaper for Australian communities.
We provide a platform that empowers local communities to benefit from energy retailing, without having to run a retailer. We provide a retail service on your behalf and instead of earning money from customer usage, we deduct a small and fixed service fee from customer bills and the remaining profit goes to your organisation for you to invest in positive local projects. Our partners receive more net profit than we do from this service.Read more about how it works >
Partner with Energy Locals to set up your own local retail offer by 24 February 2017, and when 300 customers join your community energy plan we'll give you $15,000 towards your project. This is a special bonus for Congress attendees. In addition you'll earn an estimated $15,000 for each year that 300 customers remain on your community energy plan. That's $30,000 in the first year and $15,000 for every year on an ongoing basis, so you can keep doing great things to make energy fairer, cleaner and cheaper.
We deduct a fixed fee from customer bills plus any bad debt and the remaining profit is yours to invest in your local area. If more customers join, you'll earn more to put towards your goals. You'll earn more for any small business customers that join too.
We've calculated the ongoing $15,000 per annum based on 300 customers using 5.5MWh per year ($50 per customer). You have control over the tariff design, so you can increase or decrease it according to your goals and your community's support.
Your customers benefit from fair and great value pricing, no made up or conditional discounts, no fixed contracts or exit fees, and our unique promise that we'll never change prices for profit. You can even co-brand all customer communications.
We buy our energy from the wholesale market and you can customise the tariff for your own community's needs. Customers can also choose 0, 10, 20, 50 and 100% GreenPower.
We reduce our service fee as the total number of Energy Locals customers grows. As a social enterprise, your benefits increase as we provide our service to more local organisations.
Energy Locals is up and running in NSW and south east Queensland. Victoria will follow as soon as the Essential Services Commission has fully processed our application.
