Utilitywise will help you secure the right supply contract for your business and reduce and reclaim inaccurate charges on your bill.
Recent UK gas supply disruptions have coincided with the coldest temperatures of the winter and prompted a substantial spike in gas prices.
Since July 2017, gas prices have increased by 61% and electricity by 49%, so it’s important you take action now to avoid any future rises.
Our experienced assessors can undertake a thorough audit of your manufacturing business to pinpoint exactly where and how you could make cost and energy-saving efficiencies.
We offer dedicated energy tariffs for manufacturers, with your specific needs in mind.
With our Bill Validation Lite service, your utility bills will be checked to make sure that there are no errors or inaccuracies, particularly in your non-commodity charges.
Our Manufacturing Energy Experts understand your sector and your unique pressures and challenges, so they’ll give you advice you can trust.
With manufacturing in the UK under significant pressure from increasing costs and mounting competition, the drive to cut costs has never been more important.
At Utilitywise, we recognise that energy should be an area of opportunity for savings and efficiencies, so we’ll help you secure the best supply contract and reduce and reclaim inaccurate charges on your bill.
We have two dedicated tariffs for Manufacturing customers, FixedFlex and Pass Through:
Our Bill Validation Lite Service will identify a number of non-commodity charges on the your bill – we’ll review and validate these charges and we’ll work with suppliers to have these amended or reduced, lowering your bills where possible.
As part this new service, we will review your Data Collection & Meter Operator supplier, your Agreed Capacity level and Reactive Power charges and ensure you are on the correct VAT and CCL rates.
We can even sign you up for our Triad Alert service to get you through the winter months without any nasty surprises.
Join the thousands of businesses – big and small – across the UK and Europe who rely on Utilitywise to help them to monitor and manage their business electricity, gas and water.
We understand the manufacturing industry, so you can trust us to give you sensible, clear advice.
We’ll undertake a thorough review of your existing energy contracts, so you can have peace of mind that you’re not paying more for your energy than you need to.
We compare multiple tariffs from multiple suppliers – so you can see all your options in one place, rather than having to contact each supplier one by one.
Non-commodity charges are on the rise – these are the part of your utility bills that aren’t the cost of energy.
Non-commodity charges are made up of transmission and distribution costs; and charges associated with government schemes and levies.
Currently they account for more than 50% of your electricity bill, with this set to increase to over 60% by 2020.
We have the expertise to look at these charges and ensure that they are correct. And, if we identify any inaccuracies or over-payments, we can help you to recoup costs from your suppliers.
DCP161 is a new Ofgem measure which came into effect on 1 April 2018. It means that energy users with a half-hourly electricity supply who exceed their capacity could now be hit with an excess capacity charge, which could be up to two and a half times higher than the standard market capacity rate.
At Utilitywise, we’re working with customers that could incur these excess capacity charges to negotiate revised capacity levels with energy providers. We’re also working with our customers to implement other energy saving measures to reduce demand at peak times to avoid these charges.
