Recently, I was pouring over a video discussing the potential of clean and renewable energy in a more vulnerable, risk-ridden future. While I know exactly how we can all benefit from clean energy, given my line of work, watching videos like this are a boost of motivation on days when it’s hard(er) to roll out of bed.
As I watched, I began recollecting a recent conversation I had with a potential client, who, truth be told, wasn’t blown away by the appeal of more sustainable power consumption. I remember that at the end of that conversion, the only thing he was interested in was how much money he could save – “I’ll be honest with you, I’m only interested in the cost-saving potential of solar systems. Tell me how much I can save and let’s see how we can take this conversation forward.”
The truth is that many people don’t have the time to think about the future when they’re struggling today. That’s why my pitches always highlight the cost-saving potential of renewable power.
An important part of the process of converting clients to green energy these days is network tariff optimisation. Given that the last few weeks have involved plenty of conversation on my end on this front, I thought it might be useful to examine some of the finer elements of network tariff optimisation.
This is especially important as the Australian Energy Regulator lays down their final regulatory proposal on Friday, 5th June 2020, which will include changes to cost components like peak and off-peak windows, tariff classes and structures and more.
