It has been a tough eight months for the world of Commercial Energy. You only have to turn on the TV to hear it making the headlines. Unit rates of electricity have in some cases doubled on where they were this time last year.
We have had a perfect storm of events that have led us to where we are today. Gas pipeline into the UK was closed due to maintenance, explosion at a substation in Kent that provides us with electricity from France, low wind and poor summer sun conditions last year meant that our green and renewable resources were depleted and now the war in Ukraine has all effected the wholesale cost of gas and electricity.
But what does this mean for you the business owner? In a nutshell it will see a large increase in your utility costs and in some cases be the making and breaking of a business. But there are always options!!!
Just by taking a regular meter reading and submitting it could save you some money in the short-term. Suppliers often bill on estimated reading and then charge accordingly. So, make sure you only pay for what you actually use! Goes without saying but make sure you turn off any appliance that you really don’t need. Some appliances albeit they may not be operational may still be draining power from the grid.
But if you are seriously looking to get on top of your utility spend then speak to us. We have been helping clients across the UK manage their utilities. In some cases, we have managed to get money back from suppliers that have overcharged. As one of the longest standing energy consultancies in the industry we have track record of helping business reduce the hassle and stress that can be associated with their utilities and especially in this current uncertain climate we are faced with.
But don’t just take our word for it, here is a testimonial Neal Radia of Jade Pharmacy.
He said: "We were introduced to Full Power by an associate of mine who acts as a property consultant. We struggled to find time to negotiate with our electric and gas suppliers, as it’s a hugely time consuming job! Each of our branches had various different suppliers with different contract end dates and were on different tariffs and inevitably we ended up paying emergency rates at most branches."
He added: "Juliette at Full Power took on the challenge and was professional and efficient throughout our interactions. Juliette not only managed to secure us a more competitive quote than what we had found ourselves, she saved us a small fortune and a lot of time!”.
