Businesses ‘power’ ahead

Commercial feature

Alan Egner - Power NI

In today’s economic climate, we constantly hear the terms ‘rising costs’, ‘struggling to make ends meet’, and ‘need to reduce overheads.’

So when Northern Ireland’s leading energy company Power NI announced a price decrease in August this year, a sigh of relief could be heard from businesses up and down the country.

As a result of Power NI’s improved efficiencies and cheaper world fuel prices, the local energy supplier is able to pass these savings back to its customers, seeing a price cut of over 14% for small business customers.

Alan Egner, Business Sales and Marketing Manager at Power NI said: “We’ve listened to our customers and we know that great service and better value are more important than ever. So I am delighted that we can offer our customers cheaper prices, especially in these tough times.

“What’s more, not only will customers benefit from cheaper bills, they will be assured of great customer service as well. Figures released this year by the Consumer Council NI showed that Power NI has by far the lowest level of formal complaints than any other supplier here.”

If cheaper prices and excellent customer service don’t cut it, then maybe the great value ways to save energy and money that Power NI can offer will. Like Energy Online, a new online billing service for direct debit customers. Businesses can get 24/7 access to their account, view bills and payments, monitor usage and more. Non Power NI business customers can also use the Energy Online facility to switch back from other suppliers making switching back that bit easier.

Of the 30,000 businesses that Power NI supplies, over 1,000 of these customers are larger users. Changes in the market has seen Power NI regain it’s competitive status, offering larger users discounted, tailor-made packages which include renewable ‘green’energy options. Coupled with reduced tariff rates, Power NI has secured several major contract wins recently including the Department of Finance and Personnel, Belfast Metropolitan College, Premier Inn and Andor Technology.

Power NI also works with industry experts to bring customers a range of grants and offers for the latest energy saving and renewable technologies including solar PV, solar water heating and variable speed drives.

Alan concludes: “Our new lower rates, great value and friendly, local service all add up to happier customers. With 100s of customers switching back, stick with value and service from Northern Ireland’s number one energy company.” To find out more on how Power NI can better your business, visit www.powerni.co.uk/business.
