Is Australian Owned on your household budget agenda?

Is Australian Owned on your household budget agenda?

With preference for goods and services that benefit the Australian economy on the rise since covid, many households are looking for switches they can make, to businesses that put their money back into Australian jobs and the Australian economy.

Often hard to navigate is the utilities spend category. New research shows that half of Australians  are not sure if their energy company is Australian owned – or not. When business names and marketing campaigns sometimes implicate strong references to ‘Australia’, it can be hard to keep up with who the truly Australian owned and operated companies are.

The 100% Australian owned and operated energy company, Bright Spark Power, now proudly wears the Australian Owned logo across their customer communications. 

CEO of Bright Spark Power, Arran Coughlan said the addition of the “specialised Australian owned certification is a fast way for customers to know where they are spending their money”. He said, “being 100% Australian is a value we hold dear, we have a ‘priority Australian’ procurement policy and where ever we can, we support small, local, Australian businesses.

As reported in MSN, two energy providers connecting a significant number of homes have been owned by Chinese companies for some time – Energy Australia was sold by the NSW government in 2011, and Alinta Energy was sold in 2017.Bright Spark Power is a truly local choice for your electricity supply. They are a 100% Australian owned and operated electricity supplier connecting homes and business across all of NSW and the south east QLD (Energex) region.
