Reduce the cost of your common property utility bills
CommunityUtilities is an initiative designed to help reduce common property electricity and gas utility costs in Australia. Through a range of expense reduction programs, our in-house specialist team liaise closely with an energy broker to help strata plans reduce the cost of their utility bills for common property areas.
Utilities is a complex area with hundreds of retailers in Australia. Searching for a cheaper rate can easily become overwhelming. With the assistance of an expert energy broker, our CommunityUtilities team are dedicated to helping you gain access to the most competitive rates in market.
We understand that searching for a cheaper rate can easily become time-consuming and overwhelming. Our CommunityUtilities team takes the hassle out of finding the best market rate for your common property utilities by taking care of the behind-the-scenes work and dealing with our energy panel on your behalf.
Through previous expense reduction programs, we saved more than $ 5.5 million in electricity and gas charges over three years for strata properties considered medium to low energy users. This was an average saving of $3,628 per scheme.
The savings you achieve are dependent on your usage and your current rates. If we cannot find savings on your utilities, you can enjoy peace of mind knowing you are at a competitive rate.
This value-added service offers energy comparisons at no direct cost and no obligation.

Before renewing your agreement, take a moment to compare your options. Our quick and easy form can be completed in less than 30 seconds.
We work with an expert panel of energy affiliates who can help you access competitive energy rates for your common property based on usage. Once you have switched to the new agreement, the energy brokers conduct regular health assessments to check your strata property is on a good rate.
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 uses. Even if the electricity consumption is $250 per year, CommunityUtilities can help to find savings.
There is no cost to use our energy panel or for our CommunityUtilities team to assist with the behind-the-scenes work. The only exception is if you have an embedded network or a complex utility setup, there may be additional costs. We will let you know about any extra costs before we move forward. If a committee meeting is required before proceeding, your strata manager may charge their usual additional services fee.
No cost, no obligations, ask your strata manager about how to get involved with our expense reduction programs before your next AGM. To find out more on CommunityUtilities and related information, contact us using the form on this page and we’ll be in touch soon.
