When it's time to renew, businesses often contact their existing supplier to discuss a new deal. In our experience, this might not be the best option. An energy consultant can provide quotes from suppliers across the market and advise you on what's best for your business, even if it means switching from your current supplier.

Not sure if your business needs expert energy advice? In this article, we look at five signs that show it's time to call in the energy experts.

1. Surprisingly High Energy Bills

There are several reasons why your bill might be higher than expected. It might be because:

• Your provider made an error and overcharged you.

• You’ve received an estimated bill.

• You’re being billed for the wrong meter.

• Your meter is not working properly.

If your electricity bill statements keep surprising you, it’s time for a professional assessment.

2. Lacking Onsite Energy Management

Without visibility of your day-to-day consumption, you may be paying more than you need for your energy. Our support begins from day one, no matter your contract's start date. We'll help handle your communication with suppliers, provide meter readings, and offer insights you may not have onsite.

3. Energy Data Blind Spots

Without access to your energy consumption data, it is difficult to identify patterns and replace outdated equipment. Our Energy Monitoring System (EMS) tracks individual machines and meters to show how much energy your business uses at its lowest and highest demand. That way, you can replace equipment that doesn’t meet performance standards and avoid any surprise costs.

4. Choice Overload in the Energy Market

Changes in the wholesale energy market can impact your bills depending on your tariff type. Comparing supplier offers and tariffs can be time-consuming and confusing, but essential if you're looking to reduce costs. We work with all major UK suppliers to provide the best advice on procurement, renewals, and deregulation. We offer expert advice, not a sales pitch, to help you make the best decision for your business.
