How the Deal Works
Energy prices in Australia have increased significantly in 2017/18 due to continuing investor uncertainty which has meant that new energy contracts entered into in 2017 can be as high as 15-24c/kWh just for energy (excluding network and other charges). Because of this, large energy consumers have started buying energy directly from energy producers through a power purchase agreement (PPA). PPAs have until now only been used by large corporate energy users. By bundling the load of AHA members together, we have been able to secure a PPA and negotiate a low price for AHA members.
