Blue NRG Electricity Retail
Blue NRG is a business-only electricity retailer, so don’t get confused by the fact it also lists residential products on its website. Blue NRG doesn’t appear to offer discounts or signup incentives, instead favouring straight-forward electricity with competitive basic rates.
Blue NRG market offers come with the following perks:
- No credit card fees
- Monthly e-billing
- Access to ‘My Account’
- Smart Bills for consolidating energy accounts
Blue NRG’s electricity contracts also won’t lock you in if you’re a NSW customer using less than 100MWh a year, a Victorian customer using less than 40MWh per year, or a South Australian customer using less than 160MWh per annum.
Blue NRG My Account
All Blue NRG customers receive access to ‘My Account’ – energy monitoring software that helps customers understand their electricity usage and how they can reduce their bills. With My Account, customers can review their electricity usage by year, month, week or day to raise awareness of when your business is using the most electricity. You can also set email alerts if your electricity usage exceeds a preset amount.
My Account also summarises your invoice history for quick access to billing information. It even breaks down the costs into network, retail, environmental and other costs for full transparency about the composition of your bill.
What else can Blue NRG do for you?
Blue NRG promotes itself as a local, down-to-earth retailer that wants to help businesses reduce their electricity hassle and costs. Not only can Blue NRG customers use My Account to understand and reduce their usage, but the Blue NRG website has a host of information on energy efficiency and power factor correction. Blue NRG has also partnered with energy solutions company, Empower, to help businesses reduce their electricity bills with LED lighting, solar, tariff optimisation and more. In fact, Blue NRG claims that with the help of Empower, it saved one bakery over $11,000!
Is Blue NRG right for me?
Blue NRG is a fairly straight forward retailer. Because there’s no need to worry about discounts, benefit periods or crazy terms, businesses have more time to focus on what matters – running the business. Blue NRG’s My Account also gives proactive business customers the opportunity to find additional savings through better managing their usage. That said, this isn’t unique to Blue NRG and virtually all business electricity retailers have their own energy monitoring platforms.
There’s not much more information on the Blue NRG website, so you will need to call Blue NRG for further details.
