Save on your energy – no bull
Sarah Button and Partners has joined thousands of other Australian businesses who have taken advantage of a free consultation initiative by the Australian government – the Business Energy Advice Program (BEAP). The service simply involves having a phone conversation with a business specialist who then provides a detailed report with recommendations to help you save – potentially big bucks, on your energy usage and efficiency.
For Sarah, running multiple family businesses side-by-side requires a great deal of adaptability. Located in Tamworth New South Wales, she runs a cattle and horse farm while providing cabin accommodation to tourists. Over the years, she’s fine-tuned the businesses and runs a stable and efficient operation. However, understanding energy costs and keeping on top of them is always a challenge.
To roundup her situation, Sarah had already applied a few minor lighting improvements to the accommodation arm. She regularly seeks professional help to maintain a pump that services her property. A few years ago Sarah had also signed up to a discount agreement on her energy, but after a while noticed prices had jumped up.
“I had a sense that the energy bills were out of control but I didn’t know where to go”, said Sarah.
