Here at the Reverse Auction Research Center, we've been chronicling how governments at all levels have been saving on their energy outlays by using reverse auctions for their electricity purchases. Communities all across the United States have been adopting this best practice, saving dollars that can be directed to preserving other necessary programs and services in these challenging times for municipal governments.
Now comes word from Australia of how the Camden (Camden, New South Wales) Council has saved big money - over 15% - on their municipal electrical contracts. You can read the details here:

As Camden Mayor Chris Patterson observed: “We have been trying to save costs so money can be spent on more community based things. Paying electricity bills is a necessary evil, but one that we want to minimise." Well said - kudos from us here at the Reverse Auction Research Center to these innovative Australian leaders! And if you would like to learn more about how your municipal government - wherever in the world you are located - can easily save similar amounts on all forms of energy purchases, please contact us today!
