The NSW Business Chamber has kicked off a statewide campaign to help businesses save money on their energy bills.
The Chamber’s Regional Manager, Joe Townsend, said the 5in5 campaign aims to save businesses and residents across NSW an estimated $5 million on their annual energy bills over the next five weeks.
“Businesses are being asked to utilise the campaign’s free energy comparison-and-switch service to make sure they’re on the best energy plan for them; saving money and reducing operating costs,” he said.
“The Chamber’s last two Business Conditions Surveys identified that 90 per cent of businesses in NSW rank affordable and reliable energy as a top concern and, when it comes to immediate cost reduction priorities, energy has been ranked as the second most important issue.
“We are facing one of the most challenging times in the Australian electricity market – higher prices are placing an enormous strain on business viability and household budgets. The current situation is unacceptable and unsustainable.
“We look forward to the 5in5 campaign delivering real savings to businesses and households across NSW in the lead up to Christmas.”
