A Message From Our Operations Director Gerry O’Hara…

“The energy market continues to present challenges for pubs. Recent price increases have meant that some customers coming out of a 1-year contract are finding new rates are up to 25% higher.

While agreeing contracts up to 12 months in advance may be tempting to beat further rises, customers with suppliers such as Scottish Power can’t get a renewal quote until 6 months before the contract ends. Please ensure that you are not being encouraged to agree a renewal contract with a different supplier because someone wants to make a sale, rather than because it’s the best option for you.

There continues to be confusion by some customers regarding the Domestic Price Cap, which has been in the news very recently following the announcement of a 7% reduction in costs. The price cap doesn’t apply to commercial energy contracts and no similar protection has been in place since the end of the Energy Bill Relief Scheme in March 2023.

Aside from increasing energy costs, suppliers continue to provide very different service levels. While British Gas have suspended all meter replacement and upgrades, Eon Next are actively promoting the installation of smart meters. One common thing is that all suppliers are requesting more information and taking longer to process CoT’s. Therefore, any customers taking on a new business must have requested information readily available.”

“Great advice to suit our specific needs.

We have just switched our utility suppliers to show cost savings with a fixed rate term we are very happy with. The background work put in by Nationwide Energy, their knowledge of the market and their assistance made this change seamless. They have made me realise that changing utility suppliers is not the daunting task I was worrying about. Also having the confidence that we have their continued support through the length of our contract is an added bonus.”
