Managing your commercial energy
Commercial energy procurement is frequently the starting point for may of our customers who are looking to broker a better deal for their business gas or electricity. However this is often just the beginning of a wide range of services that many of customers adopt
1 in 8 Bills is wrong!
Invoice Validation Service
Our Invoice Validation Service has saved many of our clients thousands of pounds (see our Home page for examples we've saved clients this month). We check our clients are paying the correct amount for every energy bill that is issued to them and regularly find mistakes (about 1 in 8 bills is wrong in some way although for accounts where we have previously not been involved this rises to about 1 in 5!).
This is just the start...
From these foundation services many of our clients, depending on their size and energy usage often they will then want to look at;
- Siteworks - (meter (including SMART meters) installation, upgrade, downgrade and decommissioning
- Estate energy management - harmonising multi-site end dates to facilitate bulk purchasing
- Consumption reduction initiatives - consultation for CRC (Carbon Reduction Commitment) and ESOS (Energy Saving Opportunity Scheme)
- Green/Renewable Energy Management - both procurement of green energy and also renewable energy installation
To get an idea of the scope of what we offer and how we assist our clients see our case study below (for more case studies view our Success Stories page).
Spartal is the leading, independent, UK producer of Drawn Aluminium Tube and are based in Gloucestershire. They have been a Power Direct client for many years and as a manufacturer with high energy consumption benefit from our guidance in several areas, such as procurement and meter management.
Historically Spartal had operated two furnaces in their production line which necessitated large commercial half-hourly meters to support their electricity usage. As production methods changed one furnace was removed. We assessed their usage and realised one of the half-hourly meters was no longer needed and was incurring additional metering costs compared to a more appropriately sized meter. we arranged for the downgrade of the meter which reduced their monthly payments. Spartal have 9 electricity meters and 1 gas meter. We manage their procurement and have arranged all of their meters to a common end date to ensure competitive pricing options with the minimum time and effort on their part.
