Making sure your business is on the right energy tariff can make a big difference to the bottom line. An energy broker can help you compare business electricity and gas plans, and help you to switch suppliers.
Utilitywise are the UK’s largest Commercial Energy Broker – we help super-smart businesses be even smarter. Find out how your business could save time and money by choosing to work with a utility broker.
Energy brokers (also known as energy consultants or business utility brokers) work with energy suppliers and are associated mainly with the commercial energy market. They act as a middle man to help businesses secure an energy deal that suits them. That could be a renewable energy or low carbon deal, or a standard electricity or gas contract.
Some energy brokers offer their own additional services such as energy monitoring and control technologies, to help businesses control and reduce their energy consumption.
By working with an energy broker, you can benefit from their specialist knowledge and experience. Rather spending time calling up each supplier individually to find the right contract for your business, working with an business utilities broker like Utilitywise means you only need to go to one place to get tariffs from a range of different suppliers.
An energy broker’s specialist knowledge of the business energy market means they will be able to give you useful advice and guidance.
