BUSINESS ONLY CLIENTS

Business management requires a different range of services when compared to domestics. We think the best way to help our business customers is to focus on them. Which is why we provide a business only service.

DEDICATED CUSTOMER AGENTS

Each customer is allocated a dedicated customer agent for direct contact. This ensures continuity in your enquiries and ultimate professionalism.

TRIPLE LOCK METER READ CHECKING

Each meter read submission is checked using a traffic light system. This system helps reduce the chances of inaccurate billing and incorrect readings by introducing a tolerance. Our tolerance can change depending on the time of year.

CONSOLIDATED INVOICES

Each invoice includes every single site under one contract, rather than creating a seperate contract for each site. This simplifies the invoice and helps your track each business individually. In some cases, we can start different sites at different times to enable them to end at the same time.

SITE REFERENCE

One of the advantages of having multiple contracts is that it can be easier to track from an accounting perspective. We have introduced a site reference that is a field that can be named to the customers' preference. We suggest using your departmental code as a site reference to ease the accounts audit trail.

OUR GUIDE TO SWITCHING

Information

Information we require

The switching process only requires a small amount of information which includes the MPRN number for each site, annual consumption (AQ) or estimated monthly/annual spend per site, contract start date and your billing information.

Always ensure that you have ended your contract with your current supplier before switching. This can help avoid additional costs with your current supplier if you are currently under contract.

Understanding the contract

Understand your Quote

Your quote will consist of a range of information, however, the important bits are the standing charge (STD) and the unit rate (U) measured in (pence/day) and (pence/kWh) respectively. The standing charge represents the fixed costs, such as the meter rental, meter read and our overheads. The unit rate contains the wholesale costs and the transportation costs. Your annual estimated spend is shown on your bill, but if you'd like to compare it to other quotes, you can use this formula:

Annual cost (£) = ((AQ x U)+(STD x 365 days))/100

Quote Expires

Quote Expiry Date

It is important to note that your quote has an expiry date usually 20 days before the contract start date. This is important for us to honour our obligation to provide you with a 14 day "cooling-off" period and allow for the time to transfer the supply contract from your current supplier to us.

All you need to do to initiate your contract is read the terms and conditions, sign the contract and return it via email or post to your allocated agent (Please allow delivery time if you post the contract to us).

T - 20 Days
Direct Debit

Direct Debit Setup

Usually, within the first two working days after the signed contract has been received, we will send you a link via email to set up your direct debit mandate. We use a company called GoCardless to handle the billing on our behalf.

T - 19 Days
Transfer

The Transfer Begins

At this point, we have received your signed contract, direct debit and now the cooling off period has passed. This means that we have the permission to start the transfer process. We will notify you if there is a problem with the transfer process.

Feedback & Flexibility
