An increase in supply in the gas market has led to reduced volatility which means that more options are now available to commercial and industrial gas users across most industry sectors in the East coast.

Sustainable Energy Solutions has been working with gas retailers to introduce alternative offerings to gas users resulting in potential savings of 30-40% compared to existing commercial plans and discounts.

These arrangements are suitable if:

  • Your annual gas consumption is >2,500,000MJ* (2,500GJ /2.5TJ) per site
  • Your estimated annual gas spend is > $80,000 per site
  • Use the conversion calculator here to calculate your consumption

*1000 MJ = 1 GJ (Multiplying current rates by 10 will convert figures from (c/Mj) to ($/GJ))

Below are worked examples across various industry sectors and gas consumption/spend.
