Three reasons why businesses should use an energy broker

Negotiating new contracts and discounted rates can be time consuming and expensive – and you can never be totally sure you are getting the best offer. With rising fuel prices, non-commodity costs, and emissions fees you need someone on your side to help you battle your bills.

This is where energy brokers come in.

Every business can reap the benefits of working alongside an energy broker. Not every business owner has the time to compare energy costs across potential suppliers. But energy brokers are on hand to help with just that.

So, what are the benefits of using an energy broker?

1. Save time and money

Reducing outgoing costs is always going to be a priority – especially in the current energy climate. From negotiating a lower rate, to refunds for overpayments, an energy broker can help you make the most of your budget.

Finding a better energy plan can save you money, but it can be time consuming. You may spend hours on the phone to energy suppliers – time that could be spent on growing your business.

An energy broker will handle all of a business’s negotiations, monitor ongoing bills and make sure every element of a bill is as low as it can be. That way, you can get back to doing what you do best -and let the broker handle the rest.

2. More choice

There are so many options on the market that knowing where to shop can be daunting. Our team always have their ear to the ground when it comes to finding the best energy deals around. Are you looking to move to renewable energy? Or thinking of generating your own power? We can advise you on all the options and help you build a plan that’s right for your business.

3. Keep your emissions low

As energy prices continue to soar, and net zero targets grow nearer, businesses need to have a plan in place to lower emissions. With various new non commodity costs, taxes and fees being rolled out constantly, keeping track of energy bills is becoming increasingly difficult. This makes it particularly hard for businesses owners, who are already tied down with other responsibilities, to find time to install energy efficient infrastructure.

Working alongside an energy broker can help a business to significantly reduce emissions, freeing up your time to focus elsewhere in the company. Becoming more environmentally conscious will bring a number of benefits – not only financially, but socially too.

Lowering harmful emissions will improve your Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) credentials. CSR is no longer merely a tick box exercise, and it is taken seriously by prospective customers and stakeholders. Improving your CSR could attract eco-conscious friendly clients and consumers to work with your business in the future.
