£30 000 Saved by Renegotiating a Corporate Energy Contract

by | Apr 26, 2018

When Woodgrange Laundry approached Smarter Business, their corporate energy contract was not suitable for their energy-intensive business. They had also been overcharged by their gas supplier, which has billed one of their meters incorrectly. It was up to us to find a solution, and devise and implement a strategy for savings.

A high-end commercial laundry, Woodgrange Laundry has several branches across London, catering to a range of clients. With multiple sites with high energy use, securing the right corporate energy contract is critical to their overall success.

Managing Director Daniel Browne says: “Smarter Business enabled us to sort out the issues with our existing energy provider and re-tender with another that better suited our needs. A new electricity contract was arranged, as well as a new gas deal.”

As a result of Smarter Business renegotiating the corporate energy contract, Woodgrange Laundry was able to secure savings of £30 000. “Their expertise in managing contracts enabled us to get a new arrangement that gave us access to the wholesale market, which resulted in significant savings,” said Browne.

The right corporate energy contract for Woodgrange – how we did it

  • Woodgrange’s new corporate energy contract trades gas through the month in line with fluctuations in the market price.
  • The new contract replaces the unit rate and standard daily charge with gas purchased upfront.
  • Implementing a climate change agreement has also significantly reduced Woodgrange’s costs, providing 65% relief on one of their charges. The result is a savings of around £3300 per year on electricity and £5500 on gas.
