Client Testimonial

R.E Hotel, Brighton

"We met with Mr Jacobs of City Utilities through a third-party introduction and have to say that we have nothing but praise for them in the way they have conducted our energy savings which have been substantial.

We did shop around and even went direct to the energy suppliers who were unable to match or better the prices of City Utilities. More importantly is that during the COVID-19 Pandemic when all the hotels had problem’s they were there for us to sort out any issues for us.

We trust their advice completely which in this harsh world of today is a major influence in our decision to use them as our energy supplier."

Unbeatable prices for your Electricity, Gas & Water

on the Menu for Restaurants

We know running a restaurant is hard work. Our head of hospitality has been involved with dozens of restaurants. As recently as late 2019, he project managed the opening a new 130+ cover restaurant.

Even before the arrival of the Pandemic margins in restaurants were becoming increasingly tight, Food prices up, Beverage prices up, Business rates up, Payroll up. It seems whenever you open a letter; it's advising you that something else was going up, everywhere prices are going up faster than you could ever consider increasing your menu prices.

Frustratingly business energy costs are no exception with many electricity and gas users, seeing increases of about 40% since 2016. This is why it's so important to analyse and compare business energy prices. However, this can be a long, laborious task. This is why thousands of businesses use utility brokers to do this for them.

And while we cant mitigate these rises, we can make sure you are on the best possible price and the right tariff band for your usage. We work with over 30 suppliers in the UK to get you the best possible price and GUARANTEE to beat any like for like renewal quote.

How many energy companies are in the UK?

There are about 32 main gas and electricity suppliers on the market today. 

There are some other smaller suppliers, but we only work with well-established ones in this very competitive market. 

We review our suppliers regularly, to ensure we can give our customers the best prices in the market.

Can I use a price comparison site instead?

Yes, of course you can, however for non-domestic energy, once you have given your details what you will not get is a screen showing you all the options available. What you will get is a flood of phone calls and or emails from potential suppliers. 

Once we have your letter of authority and copies of your bill with city utilities, we tender for quotes to every major supplier and invite them to tender for your contract. 

Sometimes particularly if it’s a reasonably sized contract with a business trading for years, we might see all 32 suppliers respond. 

However, if it is a smaller business that has only recently started trading, then we may only get 5 or 6 respond.

I received my renewal quote, and it is much higher than I anticipated. Why is that?

Gas and Electricity prices have risen by about 40% since 2016, so if you are coming out of a two or 3-year deal, these increases will be shown in your renewal quote. 

However, contact us today as we guarantee we will be able to beat your renewal quote.
