Dear Sir, I have held various positions in the energy sector since 2007, and specifically was with Perth Energy for more than six years from 2010. The provision of energy (electricity especially) is a very complicated issue, highly regulated with its several component aspects and was once explained to me by a professor as a "mix of engineering and economics". I believe the vast majority of the original team at PE worked hard, performed exceptionally well in a difficult market since its inception. We took on the big boys and built up an impressive portfolio of 2,000+ clients for many years who appreciated our approach compared with the level of account management they were used to with much larger corporations. In addition, I must point out that team was always focused on dual fuel where possible, and sales to small and medium enterprises and large commercial and industrials. This as per the current state government legislation. I continue to follow the exciting developments in this industry space and mindful of the relationships that should exist between 'retailer' and user, not to be viewed just as a 'buyer' (considering it is an essential commodity they have to procure for the development/running of their own business).
