Energy Profile Analysis
When providers are trying to get your business they focus on the unit cost, this is of course important but the difference in unit costs between all the suppliers are minimal. It is crucial to look at your complete bill.
In many cases the Maximum Import Capacity (MIC) is not suitable for the premises. It is your responsibility to ensure you have the correct MIC. It is not in the best interest of the providers for you to have this correct. They are in a no lose situation, if the MIC is to high you are paying to much for the capacity.
For example, if your capacity is 300kVA and the maximum ever used was 200 kVA, you could be wasting around €3000 each year. If the MIC is too low and you exceed the kVA then heavier penalties are applied in the form of ‘Excess Capacity Surcharge’.
You may not see all the charges on a DG5 bill but the costs are there hidden in the unit cost. We can tell if you are on the correct tariff.
It is virtually impossible to avoid all of these charges as most businesses demand different amounts of power over a 12 month period.
We go through your bills over the past 12 months and analyse the usage. We then break this down for you and make recommendations to change your MIC if required. We will handle all the paperwork and through the Digren Energy Bureau we can monitor your new charges for the year ahead and benchmark them against the previous 12 month period.
Our profiling service is very closely linked to our procurement and risk management service. Both services combined are designed to maximise your savings and fix your costs for the coming year.
Digren Affinity Deals
Most Providers offer affinity deals that provide members of the association or group with preferential rates. However, in many cases these don't work as effectively as they could. It is very difficult to provide a specific 'one rate fits all' solution. Invariably, some members of the association win and others don't.
Those that don't will not avail of the 'offer' in following years. With members dropping from the affinity deal the rate increases and the effectiveness dwindles
The Digren Energy Affinity Deal is unique, in so far as we carry out a full analysis for all members, initially to ascertain the viability of the Affinity Deal. Once completed, we present a proposal to the association which generally includes offers for different meter types through multiple providers.
Provides quarterly tracking reports.
Provides rates accross different Tariff bands.
Offered through a number of Providers.
Provides individual Energy Profile Analysis per MPRN per client
Why pay more than you have to?
This is a common question asked in relation to energy costs and is mostly commonly answered incorrectly. When asked 'Why Pay More' most companies are advised to look at the rate and to shop around for the best rate or use a broker. The rates portion of your bill accounts for only 40-50% of your total bill depending which tariff you are on.
Electricity in Ireland is dictated by gas prices which, as with all commodities, fluctuate. Providers using analysts trade futures on Gas to secure their best prices. The energy market is very competitive and it is in the interest of the provider to be in a position to provide cost effective energy to its customers.
