Three Myths About Switching Energy Provider

The other day we spoke to one of our Business Development Executives here at Fidelity Energy to find out the most common myths and misconceptions she hears when speaking to business owners on a daily basis. Read on to see the top three energy switching myths debunked! When was the last time you switched your energy supplier? What’s been stopping you?

1. I will have to pay hidden fees
Here at Fidelity Energy, we are happy to be transparent with our clients, the team has over twenty years’ experience so we know the angles. You won’t be charged additional fees for using our services. Furthermore, we will get in touch when your energy contract is coming to an end and help you switch again, this way you won’t go on the standard variable rate, which can be considerably expensive. With us, you switch once and we will help you switch forever.

2. Can price comparison websites be trusted?
A lot of people can sometimes be under the false impression that comparison websites are nothing more than marketing websites and a scam. The truth is that we want to find a better deal for you and collate all the energy suppliers’ prices, and then we put that against your energy usage to ensure that you’re on the best energy tariff. We do the hard work, so you don’t have to. We will check the Big Six energy suppliers, as well as independent suppliers so you get the most competitive prices possible. Do you still need convincing?

108 Medical Chambers

108 Medical Chambers is a highly respected, well-established, multi-discipline Harley Street medical clinic.

With numerous departments, machinery, computers and medical equipment in near-constant use their energy bills were understandably high. As with any busy medical practice, they were keen to avoid disrupting their day-to-day business when the subject of changing suppliers was raised.

We began by conducting a review of their existing bills, looking at where and when their expenditure was highest. This allows us to understand the way they used energy, when it was used most and what the makeup of those energy bills truly was.

The combined skills of our team soon gave us a complete picture of the client’s energy needs. Using this information, we were able to go into the market, tapping into our diverse range of suppliers, in search of a better option.

Our professional team were able to negotiate with our suppliers on behalf of our client. Using our large-scale buying power we were able to negotiate a significantly better deal for the Chambers.

After which, we then handled the switch over, talking directly to their existing suppliers and organising the entire process for them. This meant that they were able to get on with the business of running their business, whist we took care of their energy bills.

Having completed the switch, their new bills immediately displayed the significant cost reduction that had been achieved. The difference to their bottom line was noticeable enough for them to praise our work and thank us for the service we provided.
