09 Jul Supporting Mater Little Miracles

Finding a charity to donate to can be a tough exercise considering the fantastic work that hundreds of charities do on a daily basis. Having worked with many charities in the past as an organisation, Edge’s National Sales Manager, Mike Ricketts, has been donating to Mater Little Miracles for 3 years now. What do Mater Little Miracles do? Every baby born at Mater is a Mater little miracle. That’s one in seven Queenslanders and more than 10,000 new babies every year who can proudly say, “I’m a Mater baby.” But sadly, not all babies are born healthy. Some are born premature, are seriously ill, or are simply too small to go straight home...

09 Jul STAFF PROFILE – Mike Ricketts

What is the best piece of advice you have ever received? The best piece of advice I’ve ever received would have to be ‘Don’t worry about the things you can’t control but focus on the things you can.’ Name a place you have never been to and would like to visit. Why? I have always wanted to visit the Amazon Rainforest. The sheer scale of it is mind blowing. Who or what inspires you? Individuals that have been classed as ‘disadvantaged’ by society but live a life just as full as any other. Seeing ‘less fortunate’ people enjoy what they have is extremely inspiring. What is one of the biggest challenges facing energy customers today? I feel...

What is the best piece of advice you have ever received? Your title isn’t only what you put on your business card; it is what you do with your position that counts.

05 Jul Gas Market Update

Domestic gas prices on the east coast of Australia have been through a huge transitional period as a result of the introduction of the LNG export market from Curtis Island. Whilst there have been a broad range of changes, one of the key factors increasingly influencing price that domestic consumers pay is the price of oil. Domestic contracts are now being offered at oil linked pricing which effectively means that if the price of oil increases so will the price of your gas (and vice versa). For large gas producers this is nothing new as hedging commodity prices is part of their core business. For consumers however this may be...

05 Jul STATE OF THE ELECTRICITY MARKET – AUTUMN MARKET OVERVIEW

The electricity market was active throughout autumn and the transition into winter. Spot prices were largely stable as has been the case ever since the Queensland Government directed Stanwell Corporation to adopt strategies to lower wholesale prices and Snowy Hydro Corporation seem to be willing to draw down their dam levels to keep prices in New South Wales below $300.00/MWh for each trading period. Stable spot prices doesn’t mean that the market has been uneventful.

In November 2017 Kidston Solar Farm (50...
