Wattblock's new tariff optimisation service identified an electricity tariff saving of 22% and a gas saving of 42% for a strata building in Manly this week. Simply switching energy retailers will save the building over $7,000 p.a. prior to implementing energy efficiency/solar. This is an upsell from a customer who had already purchased a 2 year energy reporting subscription from Wattblock.
We are also constructing our first "blended" energy efficiency and solar financing package for a strata building which stands to instantly exceed their share of the national carbon emission reduction target for every resident living in the building.
Good news from Wattblock's Brisbane/Gold Coast team who have completed their 6th strata energy efficiency assessment and are now adding solar to their go-to-market offering.
New data acquired this week shows that Australia spends $37bn on electricity each year and 10% of this is consumed in strata buildings. We have revised our national target for energy savings out of strata buildings upwards from $1bn to $1.85bn (excluding solar) as a result.
Wattblock will be in Melbourne on Wednesday 4th November following up with contacts we met at Telstra's Vantage conference. We still have time to meet with people between 3 and 5pm.
