A Regional Collective Purchasing Scheme Endorsed by Business Owners in the Black Country
The scheme launched to positive support from local businesses. Read more of this enterprising collective purchasing scheme in the Wolverhampton Express & Star.
The scheme has received endorsement by local MPs and prominent business people from the Black Country. Sham Sharma, chairman of the Wolverhampton Business Forum, said of the scheme: "I welcome the fact that Compare Energy Bills, a Wolverhampton based company, is helping other local businesses to reduce their costs."
Many Black Country businesses have been quick to see the savings potential offered by collective energy switching. Henry Carver said: "Business energy costs have increased by almost 60% in the past year and if this trend were to continue the viability of many Black Country businesses, particularly in the manufacturing sector, would be at risk." Mr Carver continued; "We have worked with Compare Energy Bills for some time and fully endorse their collective purchasing scheme to drive down costs for the local business community."
Other Black Country based companies already working with Compare Energy Bills include; Burke Brothers, Capital Appliance Centre, Claremont Care, The Mount, Murrays Chemists and Free Radio.
These and other local business owners, who have opted-in to this free energy saving scheme, understand the buying power that comes from forming a like minded group. It has allowed our team to negotiate a much better deal with the energy providers on their behalf, whilst retaining each businesses own individual utility contract.
The bottom line is, these companies now see significant savings on their gas and electricity bills.
The Black Country Energy scheme represents many businesses located in and around towns and cities such as Wolverhampton, Sandwell and Walsall. The scheme however is open to any business located within the Black Country area.

Lisa Bedi explains the benefits for local Business Owners like You
I have found that whilst energy costs have a direct impact on the bottom line many small business owners are currently under such pressure that they haven’t found the time to switch supplier and are on out of contract rates without realising. CEB's Energy Schemes take away the hassle of what can be a complex process and in 80% of cases we are able to achieve a significant reduction in costs
