Obtaining prices for commercial half hourly (HH) electricity requires specialist knowledge of the energy market to manage the supplier procurement process.
The procedure is different from maximum demand meters, used by small and mid-sized businesses, because the data used is accurate rather than estimated.
This results in a tailored tariff agreement most suited to your requirements.
Using our efficient and unique methodology ensures you obtain the lowest possible electricity tariff for your properties. Multiple sites under one agreement and half hourly electricity meters are unable to be quoted directly and require traditional negotiation methods.
The tendering process works as follows:
Tender pricing is usually only valid for 24 hours, so the process is fluid but time critical.
If you own more than one building, we bundle these together during the tender process to leverage your buying power and maximise discounts.
Total consumption and efficiency audits can also be arranged to ensure the right classes of meters are installed to take advantage of differences in day, night and weekend tariffs.
Your consumption data is collected and stored by your current provider which you can access once you have provided a letter of authority by yourselves on company headed paper.
This data, together with your building address with postal code, is sufficient to obtain the latest electricity prices. Not all power companies will bid on your contract, but the majority will offer competitive quotes.
There are two main features and benefits from these meters. Firstly, your consumption data applied to bills and invoices will always be 100% accurate because of the automated readings collected.
The second more important advantage concerns management information and analysis. Software programs allow you to import the raw data collected to analyse trends and produce energy management reports. You'll be able to check and monitor consumption for any cost centre or premises you manage.
Today's advanced software packages can create alarms if usage is over a certain threshold. You can spot trends in the information, and most companies can save an additional 10% on an annual basis by using these advanced analytical tools.
Example reports by hour.
High consumption, max demand users with 07 or 08 classes, can be quoted directly in the same manner as non-domestic unrestricted supply numbers. These often incur expensive daily standing charges with a lower unit cost per kWh which can sometimes be mitigated.
