The benefit of an Energy Audit
We have found that most households and businesses can easily and cost-effectively reduce their energy usage by between 20% and 50%.
This is achieved by a range of measures which can be summarised by:
- Tweaking settings.
- Rectifying billing or metering errors.
- Changing energy usage behaviour.
- Upgrading key equipment and lighting.
- Installing smarter control systems.
- Making better use of the sun's free energy.
In fact, most sites can reduce their energy usage by at least 10% without any further upfront costs.
Sounds easy, right?
Well, it is. But only after you know exactly where your energy usage is going, and what to do about it.
Put simply, this is what our Expert Energy Audit reveals:
- Where your energy usage is going.
- What you can do about it.
Our Energy Audit Services
We have three levels of service based on your site type and report scope. See the drop down menu at the top of this page for pricing:
Home Energy Audit - this includes a ~1.5 hour consultation with you on-site and a brief followup emailed report highlighting the key issues, actions, opportunities, and next steps.
Basic Business Energy Audit - for all organisations after a quick overview assessment identifying the key issues and opportunities at a site. This is a 'Level 1' type audit (see below). Quoted price in drop-down applies to sites spending less than $100K/anum on energy.
Detailed Business Energy Audit - for properties seeking a comprehensive review of their usage and formal report outlining our findings. This is a 'Level 2' type audit (see below). For a quotation please send us your location and site details.

Australian Standards for Energy Audits
Our energy audits are carried out within the guidelines of Australian Standard AS3598. This standard outlines three types or 'levels' of energy audits:
- Type 1 or Level 1 Energy Audit – A basic energy audit with lower technical accuracy but often sufficient at smaller commercial sites and households.
- Type 2 or Level 2 Energy Audit – A more detailed energy audit with good overall accuracy. This includes a detailed on-site inspection of all energy using equipment as well as a more detailed follow-up report.
- Type 3 or Level 3 Energy Audit – A high accuracy energy audit which may involve detailed investigations and sub-system monitoring. Can be time consuming and more costly. Typically only needed where specific, more complex, issues exist.
What does a Energy Audit involve?
As an example, our Detailed Business Energy Audits or 'Level 2' Energy Audits include:
- On-site survey of all energy using equipment.
- Review and data-entry of past energy bills.
- Advice about how to improve energy usage habits.
- Identification of high-energy areas/activities/equipment.
- Recommendations on energy cost reductions.
- Written report with prioritised action and investment plan.
If necessary, or if specifically requested:
- Analysis of electricity meter interval data (where available).
- Review of previous energy audits (if applicable).
- Thermal imaging assessment.
- Energy monitoring, data logging, and/or sub-metering.

Thanks so much for the audit. It will be most helpful in the future and is easily understood. I did not know that our solar inverters were not working properly. Thanks for checking them out.
