JANE SAVED £830 A YEAR ON THE ELECTRICITY CONTRACT AT HER SALON
Jane contacted us when her current supplier, Opus Energy, was asking her to sign a new contract with them for her salon electricity. The new prices were far too high, and would have cost the salon £2,490 for the next 11 months. Jane haggled with her supplier and got the price down by nearly £400. However, thanks to our buying power in the energy market, we got the salon a price £830 cheaper than the original price.
We were able to get this cheaper price as we have the buying power of all our customers up and down the country. Jane just had the buying power of the electricity used by her salon. Call us today to see how much you can save.
SALON SAVES £480 ON GAS AND ELECTRICITY CHARGES
£320 on gas supply, £160 on electricity
Kim contacted us with regard to her gas and electricity contracts. The gas was up for renewal at the time, with the electricity later in the year. Her current gas supplier was charging Kim £1,380 a year, which included a standing charge of £230. Our database of suppliers and prices includes a gas supplier who has tariffs with no standing charge. This does mean the unit price increases slightly (compared to our other prices available), but on a small consumption like this, the standing charge can make up a large proportion of the overall cost.
As such, we reduced the annual costs to £1,060 on a 2-year fixed contract.
A few months later, we got back in touch with Kim when her electricity contract entered the renewal window with EDF. This resulted in a £160 saving and Kim opted for a 3-year electricity contract from the options we presented.
SALON SAVES £660 ON THEIR BUSINESS ELECTRICITY
Exclusive prices make a big dent in annual costs of £2,690
Rod had purchased a hairdressing salon and called us up to arrange his electricity contract.
As the business had changed hands, and was now trading under a new name, we were able to cancel the current contract that was in place and start afresh with a new supplier who was returning the best prices at the time.
This reduced the expected electricity costs from £2,690 to £2,030.
We have since renewed the electricity contract for Rod when the one above ended, and for a 2-year contract the annual costs only increased by £45, still some £615 lower than the charges with his earlier supplier.
WEST LONDON HAIRDRESSER SAVES £620 ON ELECTRICITY
We renewed with the same supplier, at our better prices
Luke was referred to us by one of his customers, who also uses our services for his estate agency business. When Luke called us in 2013, he had just started a new 12 month contract with British Gas, so we arranged to contact Luke later in the year.
We duly did, and reduced the new prices British Gas wanted to charge Luke, from £2,760 to £2,140.
Which supplier did we switch Luke’s business to? We didn’t, that is the difference in prices we get from the same supplier with our buying power in the energy market.
GENTS SALON SAVES 25% ON ELECTRICITY BILL
Only a small use, but we can make a dent in any bill
A small London barbers salon had annual electricity costs of £860 with EDF. Even with a small amount of electricity use as this, we were still able to reduce the annual costs to £640 on a 2-year contract.
The approximate saving over two years (presuming increased costs in the second year if they had remained with EDF) was in the region of £500.
