You’re paying more on your electricity bills than you should be. Why? Because you don’t understand the industry, which is just how power providers like it.
Fight back with Wise Up.
Electricity prices send many small businesses to the wall. We all know someone who’s just closed up shop because they couldn’t keep up with their power bills. Bill stress doesn’t just lead to this end result though, other effects include the relentless drain on resources, the stress to owners (and their families) and the general feeling of helplessness in the face of power price hikes. It weighs entrepreneurs down.
As a business person, you often feel like you have to wear every hat, but that really isn’t necessary. If you have a growth mindset, you understand there are just some things you don’t have the time to focus on.
Trying to get a good result on these things by yourself doesn’t present the right ROI for your time, and so you choose to do something else. And the issue festers in the background.
Well, your power bills aren’t just festering! They’re zapping your cashflow away. So, if you understand the cost: benefit value of calling in the experts, then you won’t be surprised to find people out there who can help. You just need to need to identify the right expert, make the right ROI calculation and then let them guide you to the right results.
I am Sharon Musker, I run Wise Up Energy Solutions and we’ve got the right answers to your power bill stress. I am one of your “right people”.
A business person who’s been there – Wise Up Energy Solutions is a business with a great story to tell.
For most of my life I’ve been self-employed. Every dollar I spent came from my own pocket. I know first-hand that paying a bill I don’t understand and can’t validate doesn’t feel right.
Often in business, you have to listen to your instincts. If you have a sneaking suspicion that your power bills are higher than they could be, you’re probably right. Sniffing out those savings for you is what I do. Sometimes it’s tens of thousands of dollars at once.
I came to the electricity brokering industry following a change of life and career. “How hard could it be?” I thought. I’d successfully run my own Finance Brokering business previously – surely working in the electricity industry would be pretty similar. Wrong.
I soon found that buying electricity is not all it seems to be. In fact, it’s hard to even tell what it seems to be due to complicated contracts, hidden fees, obscure charges, retailer variances, metering variances, price variances, distributer variances … and the list goes on. Power providers like things this way. It’s a billing maze and they’ve built it specifically for your dollars to get lost in.
If the industry wasn’t such a complicated mess, we wouldn’t have needed the ACCC Retail Electricity Pricing Inquiry at all. But we did need it. Anecdotally, I have had customers telling me for years they’ve felt overcharged and powerless (excuse the puns), and the inquiry’s report backs them up:
“Small businesses face other challenges in engaging with the market beyond the confusing and complex nature of retail offers. Submissions and consultations have highlighted that businesses are typically time-poor. Most small businesses are sole traders so have no staff to dedicate to electricity procurement.”

If that sounds like you, then know this: I started Wise Up Energy Solutions solely to be your expert “staff” member advising you on electricity procurement. Except I’m not on your staff. Instead, I’m on call whenever you need me.
How Wise Up Energy puts money in your pocket.
Over the past two years, we’ve helped scores of businesses around Australia slash their power bills. They’re often not using any less energy, they’re just armed with knowledge and have a strategy to make progress through the power company billing maze.
Here’s how we do it;
✔ Reducing your electricity costs and showing you how to buy better
✔ Negotiating directly with retailers on your behalf
✔ Identifying complex billing and data issues
✔ Finding you more appropriate tariffs
✔ Teaching you about the energy market and how to reduce and avoid risk
✔ Being your personal business energy bill specialist when you need us.
This approach works too. In December 2017 we made a bold claim: in 2018, we’d save our clients $1 million combined. If we couldn’t save them money, we wouldn’t charge them.
We put that out there and … wow! We hit our $1 million savings mark in May 2018. As of week two of July, we have just passed $1.5 million in reduced bills for our clients.
Remarkable, yes – but there’s a but!
Understand why you need electricity bill advice
Of all those customers, 90% were referred to us. Before the referral, they had no idea they were paying too much! Some were even on the cusp of signing agreements to lock them into fees and commissions they didn’t even fully understand before they spoke to Wise Up. Suffice to say, they were very glad they called us before they made their mark on the dotted line.
They now well and truly know why our motto is ‘we understand your electricity bills for you’. We do it so you can keep more money in your business and use it to grow. Because that’s the way it should be.
Before I was a power bill expert I was a business owner just like my customers. I wish I’d worked with a company like Wise Up way back then. And this is WHY I started Wise Up now.
So, let’s talk about why your power bills are too high.
