Getting free, independent advice on the complex area of electricity purchase and contracts is a key benefit to ATS Shareholders and their associated accounts through the co-operative’s energy division, Ruralco Energy.

Ruralco Energy is focused upon both the broader issues facing our shareholders purchasing electricity and gas for their farm businesses and helping with individual client issues.

Thanks to a deep level of experience in the sector and strong local knowledge, Ruralco Energy can negotiate closely with electricity retailers to obtain favourable electricity rates and contract terms for shareholders.
Ruralco Energy can negotiate deals that recognise the seasonal variability farming clients face, in terms of power use and income generation. 

Comparative energy cost analysis plays a big part in Ruralco Energy’s role, continually and independently ensuring shareholders are getting the best option in a supply market becoming increasingly competitive.
Ruralco Energy is also committed to increasing members’ understanding of what can be a complex market through its regular newsletters. The team work hard to simplify accounts and contracts that have often proven confusing and complex.

Ruralco Energy can work through accounts with shareholders, identifying cost components and their validity, and providing a valued source of advice when major disputes arise.

With electricity costs forming a major part of any irrigated farm’s costs, Ruralco Energy is a valuable resource available to shareholders seeking the best value for their electricity dollar with hassle free, simple contract arrangements.
