Reduced energy costs through Make it Cheaper 

The Statistical Society of Australia (SSA) has partnered with Make It Cheaper to help members save money on electricity.

Make It Cheaper are one of Australia’s largest business energy brokers, specialising in small-to-medium sized enterprise (SME) and residential accounts. Their most recent bill analysis (of 10,400 bills*) identified that 80% of Aussie businesses and 75% of households pay too much for their electricity1.

Their free energy health-check compares your bill against the competitive rates they have negotiated with their panel of retailers. Find a new deal today by using their fast and simple service.

As of the 1st July 2016, many of Australia’s electricity retailers increased their rates, so the trick to coming out on top is to engage with the market and compare your prices. But do you really have time for all that? It’s smart to let the energy experts do it all for you.
