CONTRACT END DATE
No one wants to find themselves on ‘out of contract‘ rates or auto-renewed. The prices are incredibly volatile and leave you with no security.
We understand that you’re busy and that electricity procurement may not be your highest priority. You probably compare electricity prices once every 2-3 years and find yourself putting off doing it because of how complex and time-consuming it can be.
Here at Black Sheep Utilities, we have a large team of energy experts that compare electricity prices from over 30 suppliers and make it their job to negotiate competitive prices for our customers every day. We’re ‘outstanding’ at it and that’s why over 10,000 businesses have used us to negotiate their contracts for them year after year.
WHAT CAN WE DO FOR YOU?
TO MAKE THE PROCESS EASIER FOR OUR CUSTOMERS, WE CAN FIND OUT AND CONFIRM THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION FOR YOU:
To compare electricity prices we need your exact annual usage to get the best rates for your business energy contracts.
The type of meter you have can affect the prices you receive from suppliers.
THE BUSINESS NAME ON YOUR ACCOUNT
Due to security checks, you’ll need to ensure that you have the most up-to-date and accurate information available on your current account.
WE’LL HELP YOU TO
Our strong relationships with the UK’s leading electricity suppliers mean it’s straightforward for us to compare electricity prices and find your business bespoke rates. We will navigate our way through the complex tariffs and provide you with the clarity you need to make an informed decision.
Happy with your current supplier? No problem, when we compare electricity prices available to your business, we always negotiate with your current supplier and negotiate a bespoke renewal price for you. Even if a renewal letter rate seems good, it’s always worth getting us to renegotiate with your supplier to see if there is any room for improvement on the prices they’ve provided to you.
Every supplier’s termination process is different, and it isn’t always straightforward as they are trying to avoid you going elsewhere. We can take care of your termination for you so that you don’t have to take time out of your day to deal with the hassle. Even if you are looking to renew, we can still help you avoid being caught out by ‘out of contract’ rates, which can be costly.
If you don’t have an electric meter or need a new one installed, we can arrange the installation or upgrade for you!
Relocating your business can be stressful and time-consuming, it’s understandable that your energy contracts might not be at the forefront of your mind. We can help you manage the whole process from cancelling your current contract, comparing electricity prices for your new property, and arranging a new contract even before you’ve moved, allowing you to concentrate on the more important things.
