£11,120 SAVING ON ELECTRICITY AT HIS RESTAURANT
Mark contacted us in September 2013 to see how we could help with his restaurant electricity bill. Unfortunately it was too late – they had already started a new contract with British Gas in June. This was to prove extremely costly to the business, as British Gas had tied them into a 2-year contract at over 14p per kWh. When the restaurant uses 225,000kWh of electricity, this was a heavy cost they had to bear.
Roll forward 18 months, we contacted the business owner as planned, and got new prices of under 10p per kWh, saving them over £11,000 for the next 12 months.
Interested to see if our exclusive gas and electricity prices will save your business money? Call us today and we will get to work. Thanks to our special relationships with the energy companies, we can lock in today’s lower prices up to a year in advance of the start date.
£1,130 SAVING ON RESTAURANT GAS COSTS
All because they took their eye off the notice date
With an annual consumption of nearly 200,000kWh of gas, Mark was keen to get this price down as much as possible. He wasn’t quite expecting the £1,330 saving on the previous 12 months £6,840.
Based on the annual consumption, the price per kWh being charged by E.On was nowhere near as low as it should have been. But his energy company weren’t going to tell him that, Mark had to find an energy broker to give him an honest opinion.
OUR PRICES SAVE RESTAURANT £615 ON GAS COSTS
And they don’t have to switch supplier
The gas contract at a London restaurant was up for renewal, and John agreed a new price with the current supplier, but wanted to check with us first.
A good thing he did, as our exclusive prices from the energy companies meant he could stay with the same supplier, but our prices would save his business £615 over the prices he had just got from the same supplier!
With such a large consumption, there are always fractions of a penny we can shave off the unit price with our exclusive prices.
£13,500 ELECTRICITY BILL REDUCED BY £3,000
Poor credit rating not a problem
Using 130,000kWh of electricity across 4 meters, this south London restaurant and spa was paying too much. The current supplier quoted the customers poor credit score as a reason for high prices. However, thanks to our special relationships with the energy companies, we were able to secure cheaper prices, saving the restaurant over £3,000 per year.
That was a 22% saving for our customer.
3-YEAR OR 5-YEAR CONTRACT?
It pays not to lock yourself in for too long
This Yorkshire restaurant was being pressured into a 5-year contract for their business electricity, by their current supplier. As a rule, we stick to 3-year contracts at the most, unless the customer really wants to lock themselves in for longer. Why? Well we can’t predict the future of the market. For example, we got a 3-year contract, saving them £3,710 a year off the £27,360 they had been quoted.
However, because this was 2012, and they are not tied into a 5-year contract until 2017, they are now able to take advantage of the recent drop in electricity prices, saving the business even more money.
No doubt the 5-year contract would have been great for the energy company, but they weren’t thinking of their customer.
