All half hourly metered customers adopting our EMS tool suite have this fully automated process included. This operation is also available for the manual reconciliation of prior year's data.

How Does a Commercial Energy Broker Work?

All brokers receive sales commissions payments directly from the energy companies. They earn a small percentage of your invoiced usage based on your tariffs. The margins are low which presents the ability for accurate and transparent pricing comparisons. Any rate quotes you receive already include commission payments.

Our broker team has direct relationships with all the gas and electricity suppliers in the marketplace and know all the terms and conditions of sale that makes one contract different over another. We monitor price changes in the market on a daily basis and know which supplier and contract are best for each business based on their consumption data and needs as an organisation.

By having direct relationships means we do not rely on the out-dated aggregator model. Aggregation involves using an additional intermediary which in turns adds costs to your utility bill as all parties need to make a profit. By cutting out this unnecessary layer in the process means we always offer competitive and affordable pricing.

The quoting system we use directly integrates with the majority of suppliers which means a fast and accurate switch with no power interruption. We'll continue to be your partner to monitor your bills, contract and keep you informed of any changes during your contract duration.

Please note: Our complimentary services are available to businesses using over 235,000 kWh per year using our procurement services.
