The energy industry is unregulated and as a result the broker market has become saturated with large call centres focused on selling energy contracts over the phone, offering little to no service afterwards
Many businesses are receiving scores of calls daily from these organisations!
To get the best possible service for your business this is not the way to go.
As energy brokers are unregulated no experience nor proof of competence are required to enter the market. There is no requirement to be transparent about how money is earned.
The majority of energy brokers earn money by adding uplifts to the unit rates of a contract. This amount varies depending on the level of work required to manage the account but most importantly a brokers service is not free.
The level of uplifts applied can vary dramatically. Some suppliers allow up to 5 pence to be added as commission to attract large volumes of business.
Finding a broker that puts your business first is challenging and I recommend spending some time getting to know the broker you intend to work first before accepting any offer. Not all brokers will make it clear how they earn their income and it will be quickly evident if they are looking to build a lasting relationship with you, or just after a quick sale.
Halstead Energy builds long lasting relationships with customers, making it clear how it generates revenue and ensuring that the level of commission is fair and relative to the work that is being done.
Halstead Energy provides an all inclusive service, not just procurement Providing services from bill query resolution to meter installations and assisting customers with energy efficiency projects like solar and EV charging.
