High business energy costs banished

ERM Business Energy is seen to be the best ‘thing’ since the first vine and olive tree was planted on the Mornington Peninsula.

Local resident and farm entrepreneurs Greg O’Donoghue and his wife Sue who own the successful ‘Green Olive’ at Red Hill with three dogs, 40 sheep, 60 chooks, are saving $10,000 a year on power.

Green Olive was to be the ‘Apple in Greg & Sue’s eyes’ after packing up the kids in 2003 to leave the corporate lifestyle in the city behind and follow their dream.

They soon realized running a farm and orchard with cool stores and an irrigation system and a commercial kitchen which included making jams and chutneys was literally ‘eating’ into their profits therefore not sustainable. Something had to be done!

So Greg and Sue shopped around for months investigating the possibility of other energy companies freeing up their exorbitant, increasing costs of energy and found ERM Business Energy.

They contacted them and switched. Knowing the potential savings Greg said, “We saved 12 cents per kilowatt hour, which equated to an $8,000 to $10,000 annual saving for us. That made a big difference to our business. And with ERM, we’re not locked in. There’s the flexibility to leave whenever we want –  although we’re 100% satisfied, so we’re not going anywhere!”

Greg explains that ERM Business Energy have looked after us and our business since we first made contact adding “Our ERM Account Manager did all the work for us, so switching was easy. Now we know where we stand with our power bill every month. It’s always on time, it’s easy to understand and if I have any questions, I just shoot them an email and I get a prompt response, usually the same day,” said Greg.

Greg concluded,”I'd happily recommend ERM Business Energy to any business looking for great service, simple billing and big savings.”

ERM Business Energy encourage businesses to look at the bottom line when comparing electricity charges. Many retailers are seen to be offering big discounts, but in reality all that counts is how many cents per kilowatt hour businesses are paying.
