Powerful Allies helps businesses avoid pitfalls of unregulated business energy market

In 2021, it became quite clear that there is an urgent need for us all to strive towards a greener future, and businesses have a huge part to play in this. For any businesses considering how they can do their bit, leading green energy partners Powerful Allies offer a range of services that can help.

What services do Powerful Allies offer for businesses?

Powerful Allies offer a wealth of services that can help businesses to cut their waste energy, reduce costs, ready themselves for a sustainable future and improve their customer perception. Specifically, their services for businesses include:

What are the benefits?

Choosing to work with Powerful Allies offers a range of benefits for businesses, including:

  • Improved customer perception – after last year’s damning IPCC report and the climate pledges made during COP26, businesses which fail to make changes to operate more sustainably run the risk of being perceived negatively by consumers and other companies. The knock-on effect of this could be a loss of business.
  • Ensure legal compliance – failing to comply with legislation that is applicable to you can result in sizable fines. For example, large businesses which fail to comply with the Energy Savings Opportunities Scheme can be fined up to £50,000 plus £500 per day.
  • Reduce carbon footprint – by reducing energy usage and/or switching to more sustainable forms of energy, businesses can lower their carbon footprint and benefit the environment.
  • Lower energy costs – there are lots of different business energy providers and even more contracts to consider, which means that businesses who are not on a contract which best suits their needs might be paying far more for their energy than they should be.
  • Full transparency Powerful Allies insists on a completely transparent approach, so you’ll only pay for the services you require and will not incur any hidden fees.
  • Avoid the pitfalls of an effectively unregulated market – the UK commercial energy market is effectively unregulated by Ofgem, meaning energy suppliers and brokers can basically charge businesses what they can get away with. However, Powerful Allies can help to expose and recover any hidden costs and secure an energy contract where you will only pay what you owe.
