Jim Anderson

Chairman at Machynys

Fidelity energy has supported Machynys Golf and Country Clubs business energy needs across the whole spectrum of our energy portfolio. This trusted partnership has ensured we have maximised and enjoyed the benefit of lower energy costs, whilst at the same time alleviating us from the time consuming business of dealing with multi-supplier contracts and challenges that we had previously had to face and deal with in the past.

Now that Fidelity energy manage all our energy requirements and portfolio, we have been able to focus on other similarly important areas of our business, whilst retaining control of the final decision making process on our energy suppliers made from Fidelity energy’s clear and precise spread sheet analysis and recommendations, detailing our companies best options to maximise energy savings together with the most viable contracts that enabling us to develop budget certainty .

The Challenge

The main aim for the club was to stay on top of its many electric and gas meters. They wanted to ensure they could take advantage of the best pricing in the market at a given period and to secure budget certainty for the longer term, whilst lowering the clubs cost to run as a business.

In supporting the above Machynys needed help to get back the valuable time that was being spent on managing their utilities.

The Solution

Let the energy experts manage the portfolio from searching the market to handling energy contracts and supplier negotiations.

Secure fixed rate, long term contracts at the best available rate to provide budget certainty.

Forward purchase future rates to ensure meters never fall out of contract, saving time and money for Machynys.

The Results

The main result we have seen is the time and stress we have saved. I would have previously spent days trying to handle issues with suppliers and it took the team at Fidelity, with their in-depth knowledge of the market place, no time at all to resolve it their side.

The trusted relationship we have with them is priceless and means I can focus on other areas of the business knowing our energy is being expertly managed.
