The Little Beach Boathouse saved $5,925 on electricity…


Restaurant & Catering Industry Association’s partnership with energy experts Make it Cheaper continues to deliver great savings for our members.

Charlie Culver, owner of The Little Beach Boathouse in Nelson Bay recently used Make it Cheaper’s free energy comparison and switching service.

Like a lot of restauranteurs Charlie had assumed that what she paid for her energy bills was just what she had to pay – the bills would come in and she didn’t enjoy paying them, she just thought that there wasn’t a lot of options out there.

Charlie said, “I had never thought to look into it (energy comparison services) until the Restaurant and Catering Industry Association got in contact recommending Make it Cheaper’s services.”

Charlie left her details on the Restaurant & Catering Industry Association’s Make it Cheaper energy savings page, and one of the energy experts at Make it Cheaper got in touch with Charlie to discuss her current tariff and usage and presented Charlie with a range of options from Make it Cheaper’s panel of leading energy retailers*.

Charlie said “After a super easy phone call, I found out they could save me $5,925 a year. I was amazed! As well as slightly annoyed I hadn’t checked my energy bills earlier. I would definitely recommend other members get involved as it’s the easiest way to improve your business’ profit.”

Charlie is not alone, in fact the energy experts at Make it Cheaper find savings on energy bills for over 80% of Australian homes & businesses^.

As winter is almost here, it’s an ideal time to get a free energy comparison before those hefty winter bills start to roll in.

Simply upload a recent e-Bill from your energy retailer and the energy experts from Make it Cheaper will be in touch to let you know your energy options, and if you like the savings they can achieve for you- they can make the switch for you on the phone, saving you time and money.

* Make it Cheaper has commercial relationships with the following retailers: Origin Energy, AGL, Momentum Energy, Alinta, Blue NRG, Power Direct, Next Business Energy and ERM Power. Availability of retailers and plans can vary state by state and at times commercial relationships may impact what retailers or plans are made available. ^Make it Cheaper compared actual customer’s usage, rates and applicable discounts against what they would have paid under the recommended current offers from its panel of multiple energy retailer partners between June to December 2018. Average savings figures were calculated from energy users who switch from their existing plan or retailer to a new one recommended by Make it Cheaper.
