How SES helped an aged care facility reduce by 35% their gas spend and by 32% their electricity consumption


For many years, Sustainable Energy Solutions (SES) has worked with multiple aged care clients across all states assisting them to minimise and manage their energy spend. With electricity and gas markets trading at very low rates, the current market provides an opportunity to secure considerable savings across a multi-site portfolio.

The Project

To take advantage of the current market for a renowned Aged Care client located in Victoria, SES carried out a competitive tender reaching out to multiple electricity and gas suppliers.


Sustainable Energy Solutions’ unique approach to gas procurement has enabled many of our aged care clients to save up to 35% against their current spend. These savings took effect immediately.

The client also saved a 32% over a 24-month contract on the electricity spend which was secured for 2022/23.

Our clients benefit from ongoing support:

  • Market tracking and tender preparation

  • Portfolio Management of your electricity and gas accounts

  • Preparation of budgets

  • New connections and disconnections

  • Updates of any opportunities for further savings such as network reviews

    We reduced our gas spend by 35% across our aged care portfolio, and reduced our electricity cost by 32%.' - CFO, Aged care facility

Solar assessment

In 2020, SES provided the client with a solar assessment illustrating the payback periods for a variety of system sizes without having to meet with multiple suppliers on site. This enabled the client to assess the feasibility of a solar project and establish a budget. SES has recently reassessed the project providing the client with an updated proposal, so that the client could apply for a government grant.

Key benefits of a solar assessment:

• Transparent system sizes and costs

• Independent modelling

• Site by site system analysis

• Affordable
