What were the immediate benefits?

Once Utility Aid received the bills they were able to request tenders from suppliers interested in providing prices for the contract.

What was their contract position?

The branch were approaching the date for renewing their contracts. One of their priorities was budget certainty so it was essential that they were offered competitive tariffs on longer term contracts.

What did ​Utility Aid​ recommend?

Utility Aid recommended 48 month contracts for both gas and electricity to provide the budget certainty the branch needed to plan into the future.
"The savings we hope to generate through moving our contracts will be ploughed into supporting people affected by MS. It's a real boost to be able to use the money for the benefit of our members rather than on an energy contract!"
