School energy contracts, are you on the ball?
School energy contracts are often not managed correctly.
A school energy contract arranged by your Local Authority might sound a good idea, but in reality, your school can end up paying too much. These schemes generally rely on one supplier and are easier for the body to manage from an administration point of view.
Perfect Clarity are experts in school energy contracts.
Call our small, friendly team on 020 3372 6517 for expert advice. You will be able to talk with the same energy consultant every time you call.
Who arranges your school energy contract?
Does your Local Authority recommended you use a group that bundles your school contracts together with others? Then you may wish to explore further options. Allowing one supplier to manage hundreds of school energy contracts does not result in the best deal for your school.
Some of these energy basket providers may promote savings “better than the national average” of gas or electricity. In reality, this isn’t very difficult at all.
What it most certainly does, is save time and administration for the provider managing the energy basket. But it can actually be quite costly for your school.
At Perfect Clarity, we do all the work for you. It doesn’t cost you any more time and will get you a better price for your school energy contracts.
We don’t stipulate one provider you have to use. And we don’t insist that you commit on a specific date. Some of these ‘groups’ don’t even tell you the price you will paying per kWh until you are already committed to the contract.
We will advise on all aspects of your contract, provide you the best options for different contract terms (with the exact prices and terms for each), and put forward our recommendations.
More options for your school energy contracts – better energy prices
Take time to have a conversation with our energy experts. We will provide some clarity on the energy market for you. Being reliant on one supplier – in a market of many – is rarely going to get you the best price. Far from it.
Importantly, we work with over 20 energy companies in the commercial sector. We also work proactively for our customers, and keep building our supplier relationships.
Most importantly, we make sure you know the exact price per kWh for the gas and electricity before you commit to a contract. Along with any other prices, such as the standing charge and any Capacity charges for Half Hourly metering. Read more about school gas prices and electricity prices.
Hidden energy fees paid by schools
There are many energy ‘brokers’ and basket providers who, we are sorry to say, work for themselves, not their customers. Is your broker pushy and makes you feel like the world will fall off a cliff unless you sign today? Do you receive urgent missives from the energy basket appointed by the Local Authority to sign up immediately?
If this is the case, the chances are you are not getting a very good price for your gas and electricity.
We have seen some true horror stories where schools have paid through the nose for their energy contracts, due to huge fees from energy baskets and ‘brokers’. In contrast, we are totally transparent. We will clearly outline the fee and how we receive it.
Do you know the fees earnt by your basket provider or broker for a typical gas or electricity contract?
Unfortunately, the annual cost of electricity and gas paid by many schools will include anything from £500 to several thousand pounds to their energy broker or basket provider. Which is clearly shocking.
We have a much more open and ethical approach.
We also hold the energy suppliers to account, as they like to increase their profit margin when they think they can get away with it. We look out for you at every step.
