Why Energy Procurement?
Energy Procurement services are becoming more popular and commonplace as organisations face an increasingly complex national energy market and soaring energy prices.
The National Energy market is very complex. It’s not uncommon for businesses to receive multiple utility bills from various retailers. This is particularly the case if an organisation has a number of different office locations or facilities across the country spanning various network supply zones.
Energy prices are also rising sharply across the country, so it’s important to take proactive measures that minimises the impact of increasing costs.
How? By ensuring you are with as few retailers as possible – preferably with a single provider – one that can meet all your energy requirements and charge you the most competitive rates.
The challenge of course is there are dozens of energy retailers in the market.
They all seem to claim to offer the best service and price – but how can you be really sure you’re not being duped by clever marketing and not getting good value for money?
The only way to know for certain that you’re getting a good energy deal or not, is to do the following:
- Sift through the many different charges that are on these utility bills
- Compare your current rates with every energy retailer
- Retrieve dozens of quotes
- Analyse each one of them
- Negotiate with retailers to gain further discounts
- Follow up
- Finalise paperwork and contract signing
- Verify execution
This entire process can be extremely resource intensive and time consuming and will distract you or your staff from core business activities.
Aside from implementing energy conservation measures through Guaranteed Energy Savings Projects, you can look to a service provider that can assist with energy procurement services.
Ecosave can remove all this hassle for you with its comprehensive Energy Procurement Service.

Why choose Ecosave for your Energy Procurement?
As an independent Energy Services Company (ESCO), Ecosave acts in the best interest of our clients.
We do not receive any commissions from any retailers, unlike other energy brokers that offer energy procurement for a minimal fee, but lock you into long contracts with artificially inflated energy rates with their favoured retailer (that just so happens to give them highest commissions), which means you ultimately pay more than you should.
At Ecosave, we’re different – we take deep pride in being independent, and providing an unbiased energy procurement service that will benefit you in the long run.
We charge a one off flat fee for our service that saves you time, money and resources.
