ASSOCIATION OF INDEPENDENT MUSEUMS
Why join the AIM Energy Action Group?
Rising energy costs are an ongoing issue for museums. To move forward as sustainable organisations, museums need to explore ways of reducing energy costs, and ultimately, energy consumption. In the first instance, the AIM Energy Action Group will enable your museum to tackle costs.
All AIM members are welcome to join the scheme and get free, no obligation energy quotes. The Energy Buying Group has a proven track record of providing unbeatable quotes for its members; quotes which were otherwise unavailable to individual organisations.
How do I sign up?
Joining the AIM Energy Action Group is free of charge, and the group will manage all the negotiations in getting the best energy prices for you, leaving you free to run your museum.
To join the AIM Energy Action group, all you need to do is complete a Letter of Authority and send it, along with a scanned copy of your latest energy bill to the AIM Energy Action Group. You can download the Letter of Authority from the Resources section of this page.
What is the Letter of Authority?
The Letter of Authority gives DTA Wales and Touchstone Services authority to review your current energy bill and negotiate an energy contract on your behalf. To complete the Letter of Authority you need to print a copy onto your organisation’s headed paper, sign it and send a scanned version back to the AIM Energy Action Group, along with a copy of your latest energy bill.
What happens next?
DTA Wales will review your bill, contact your current supplier and check your total usage. When they contact your current supplier they will request that you are not put on a higher tariff as you enter your contract renewal period; this is known as terminating your contract. You might find your current supplier sends a new quote at this point, but you do not need to sign up for a new contract unless you choose to. If you do decide to change energy suppliers, you will not be cut off!
