Thursday, May 26, 2016 ENERGY TIPS
What do you know about your current energy supplier, and the rates you’re being charged? When did you last renew your contract, and did you check that you’re getting a good deal? Let’s be honest, when you’re trying to run a successful business, performing a detailed analysis of the utilities market before renewing your contract is probably not top of your “to do” list. Energy is energy, right? As long as your supply is consistent and reliable, you’re probably not thinking too much about shopping around.
At the same time, though, there’s no denying that being efficient with resources is the mark of a flourishing business. Saving money where you can probably is pretty high on your priority list. So where do you start? The energy and utilities industry can be a mystifying and frustrating marketplace, full of technical jargon and sales speak. But you’re not alone out there!
Here are three great reasons to call in the experts…
By partnering with an energy consultant or broker, you’re putting the most experienced and qualified people on the job – as you would with any other specialist field within your business. An independent energy consultant is able to be completely impartial in searching out the best rates, offers and services for you and your business. The personal service is therefore purely focused on your needs and priorities, so you can be sure that you’re getting tailored, unbiased advice.
Your energy consultant will do all the time-consuming research and analysis for you, leaving you free to focus on the real vision and goals of your business.
Not only that, but an energy broker with many years of experience will be able to offer you a wide range of trusted suppliers, rather than just the big names, and is in a strong position to negotiate more competitive rates on your behalf.
Working in partnership with you, rather than a basic out-sourcing relationship, your energy consultant will come back to you with a choice of relevant suppliers, and their rates, along with their own professional recommendation. Whether you just want the essential findings or a detailed comparison report, you will be presented with the facts, in plain English. With no obligation to take up the broker’s own recommendation, you still have complete control and freedom of choice when it comes to this important decision.
By partnering with an energy broker you can trust, you have more control, more choice, more flexibility and more freedom. The bottom line is that you can rest assured that you’re not paying more than you should for the energy that fuels your business.
