Our current expense reduction program

Let our team find you a competitive rate for your common property energy

Working with our expert panel of energy affiliates, we will help you get access to competitive energy rates in the market, based on your property’s usage. Once our team have converted you to the new agreement, the energy brokers will conduct regular health checks to help you remain on the best market rate for strata property.

Customers with commercial and industrial (C&I) grade electricity accounts are familiar with using energy affiliates to assist with electricity contracts.

CommunityUtilities provides the expertise of energy affiliates regardless of how much electricity or gas your common property consumes. Even if the electricity consumption is $250 per year, CommunityUtilities can work to find you savings.

Save up to 30% off your energy bills.

For medium to low electricity and/or gas uses we are regularly finding savings of up to 30%. Lower utilities expenses can lead to low strata fees for owners.

Save enough to cover your strata management fees.

In some cases, the annual energy savings have been more than the annual strata management fee!

No costs, no obligations

There is no cost for using our energy panel nor any costs for our CommunityUtilities team to assist with the behind-the-scenes work. The only exception is if you have an embedded network or a complicated utilities setup, then there may be additional costs. These will be clearly communicated to you before proceeding. Where a committee meeting is required before proceeding, there may be the usual additional services fee by your strata manager.
