Reduce capacity charges

Introduction

On average, the Australian Energy Market Operator (AEMO) Capacity Charges make up 30% of a site’s total electricity costs. A building’s usage during the Hot Season between 1 December to 31 March each year will dictate Capacity Charges for the forthcoming Capacity Year.

HFM will develop a tailored Action Plan to help you reduce your site’s Capacity Charges for the upcoming Capacity Year.
