Collective energy purchasing is an affordable energy management solution for businesses
The price of energy can be a hefty cost for businesses of any kind, yet there are solutions which can make energy purchases far more affordable. One of these that can be ideal for business organisations and charities or non profits is to consider group buying. Collective energy purchase can really cut the cost of energy supplies and help ensure cash is diverted to areas where it can really make a difference.
What is group buying for energy?
Group energy purchase refers to collective energy deals set up as a result of negotiations between business energy customers and energy suppliers. It’s possible to arrange exclusive energy contracts via this process and the combined purchasing power of the collective ensures the most attractive prices.
