- The process an energy consultant will go through to get you the best deal right for your business.
An energy consultant will run through a very strict process to enable you to obtain the best deal for your business. This will involve obtaining a copy of a recent bill for each meter and requesting a signed Letter of Authority (LOA) from the customer. The bills are used to ensure the correct information is being used and also to ensure that the charges on your bills are correct. The LOA is a declaration by you to allow the Energy Consultant to speak to your supplier(s) – this is for Data Protection and a reputable energy consultant will always ask for your authority.
Once all of the information is received from the supplier such as usage and end of contract date, you will receive a price offer from all available and applicable suppliers. From here you can choose what is best for your business and the relevant contracts will be given to you for signature.
