What makes rural energy use different?
No matter what type of business you run as a rural energy user you'll probably use oil or LPG for your heating & be paying more for you electricity than in urban areas simply due to distribution costs, another annoyance can be the older network infrastructure causing more frequent power cuts or reduced capacity, we are here to help and have many years of experience helping rural businesses.
We know that rural businesses are far more likely to operate longer hours, especially farmers. This should be good news for your energy suppliers as your demand is spread across the week rather than the surges in power demand within the 9-5 world but they don't recognise this in your bills. The introduction of cheap rate power between midnight & 7.00am is the only saving grace but in our opinion it is so completely out of date and wrong for many rural businesses. We are actively fighting with suppliers for fairer energy tariffs with longer periods of cheap rates that compliment your usage, slowly we're winning with a new product due to launch shortly that should reduce costs by up to 13% for dairy farmers = see Dairy Farm Energy (& other rural business users too!)
We approach things slightly differently to others, maybe because we're old school but we do it for a reason - because it works! We focus on understanding your business operational needs as well as energy demands (ideally visiting in person) we analyse your energy consumption, check your historical billing looking for mistakes or excessive charges that we can quickly change giving you immediate savings (at no cost)
Our free energy reviews will also highlight potential energy saving products & technologies including renewables, on-site generation, smart energy management & operational changes that may be worth further consideration. (Something as simple as a time switch can pay for itself it days!)
The most important thing is we'll present you with the facts so you can decide what actions to consider.
So let's have a chat & see how we can help you.
No rush, no pressure, just what we call proper energy saving advice without the bull.
Dairy Farmers we need your help
We've been working with a UK based energy supplier on a brand new electricity tariff that should provide dairy farms with cost savings of between 8 - 13% (based upon 18 farms surveyed) We need to look at more data to confirm our numbers.
If you can spare a few minutes to answer the short survey you'll be helping us & your fellow dairy farmers too.
We'll also be asking for your input on the finer details of this new tariff so you get a product that ticks all the boxes.
Many thanks to Kathryn at Kingshay, Neil at DCS, FCG members & AHDB for all your help to date.
