Energy Management’s invoice validation service has helped save North Somerset County Council (NSCC) schools and academies £75,000 over the last three years, with further savings made in other areas of this field.
Over the period in question, 57 NSCC run schools and academies benefitted from Energy Management’s expertise in spotting potentially costly errors contained within their energy bills.
Unless spotted by a trained eye, wrong price per kilowatt entries and more technical issues such as incorrect capacity allowance charges can all contribute to a customer paying over the odds.
Research from Energy Management has shown that as many as one fifth of utility bills are wrong and result in over charges which, according to industry statistics, can be on average between three to five percent of the overall bill value.
As many headteachers or financial directors do not necessarily have the time or knowledge of the energy industry to study the minutiae of bills, it often pays to get outside help. That is certainly the experience of Ian Blackburn, Principal Commercial & Compliance Officer of North Somerset Council.
Mr Blackburn said: “Energy Management provide unrivalled expert advice, which has resulted in significant cost savings for the Council and its schools. We are extremely happy with the service we receive from Energy Management LLP and would recommend them without hesitation.”
Energy Management provide a whole range of energy consultancy services to schools and academies, and to some of the leading commercial brands in the UK.
