Group energy buying

Our group buying programme is designed to help businesses achieve the best prices for their energy, whilst giving peace of mind that prices are fully fixed and inclusive for two years.

Our groups are suitable for any business, regardless of size and industry sector, who want to leverage economies of scale to achieve better prices for their energy.

What do participants say?

"We joined the buying basket because there was nothing to lose! It enables us to maintain control of our energy contracts, while leveraging the benefits of bulk purchasing to gain competitive prices."

Kevin Adams - Head of Estates and Facilities, Gloucestershire Health and Care NHS Foundation Trust

Unlike many similar group buying mechanisms on the market, our process offers participants opportunities to opt out, even after prices have been shared, making it a truly low risk option to securing competitive prices for your energy.

Traditional energy buying baskets have asked participants to take a leap of faith on the promise that combining with others to leverage the buying power of a larger consumption will offer a better price than purchasing individually.

The traditional approach is to sign up to the basket and hand all the buying decisions to a central provider who acts in the best interests of the whole collective. Typically, participants will not be able to opt out of the scheme and will not know what they will pay for their energy until they are notified of the closing price.

What if there were a different way to leverage the power of bulk buying without the risk involved in flexible purchasing?
