From mechanics to milk bars, every business has energy bills in common. But working out if you’re paying the right amount for your energy isn’t as simple as asking the shop next door – businesses are different, and so
is their energy use.
This makes it impossible to say exactly what the average small business electricity bill in Australia looks like – but there are still a few ways to get a sense of how yours stacks up.
The Australian Government started an initiative where small businesses could share their energy spend while also providing extra details about their size and industry, to put their costs in context.
You can access the database by contributing information from your own business. Once you do, you’ll be able to see what other businesses like yours are spending.

Power prices are based on a lot of moving parts: wholesale prices, network charges, environmental fees and retailer costs all make up the whole. Power companies change their market offers every so often in response to these changing costs.
So even if you’re on the best deal now, something even better might pop up down the track.
