BES Utilities Price Freeze

As price freezing becomes the strategy-du-jour for energy companies, we can announce that we have been way ahead of the game for months - and will continue to be so - with electricity prices for our customers remaining locked since April 2013. Our prices will remain set for our customers until at least October this year: which means a steady 18 months of worry free bills for customers.

BES is attacking gas prices too by freezing those prices until at least the upcoming winter months. The BES Gas budget plan already shakes up the market by running a fixed monthly billing system to help customers plan energy consumption as a flat rate across the year so all this will come as welcome news to small businesses worrying about rising overheads and an uncertain economic climate.

We can announce our long-term commitment to business users this week as controversy over responsible energy pricing hits new heights. Our newly appointed CEO, Ben Jones, explains why our commitment to our customers is a genuinely user-focused strategy:

"BES Utilities are 100% committed to enabling small businesses in the UK to plan and grow without the unpredictability of energy costs.

Our decision to price freeze is transparent and customer focused. It is worth noting that bigger providers who operate in the Domestic market have historically been subject to the cost of wider government charges, such as the ECO levy, for some time.

Recent announcements have failed to highlight that such levies have been dramatically reduced by the coalition government meaning that the Big Six are in prime position to pass savings back on to the consumer. As a smaller independent supplier, we were never subject to these charges and so our freeze on pricing is a customer driven initiative only to encourage British business growth."

BES Utilities is a leading commercial energy and telecommunications supplier to British-based businesses, aiming to provide customers with products that are simple, flexible and backed by an excellent standard of customer service. We have no anonymous oversees call centres, just UK-based, proactive account teams, on the ground protecting business' energy needs.

UK Floods

Many BES Utilities customers have been affected by the terrible floods across the country; luckily the UK government has a dedicated 10million support scheme to businesses that have been flooded, and to businesses that have suffered significant loss of trade due to the natural disaster.

Since 1998 there has been at least one serious flood every year, SMEs such as our customers are more likely to be flooded that ruined by fire. As out climate changes, we can expect to see more dangerous weather resulting in more floods!

On the 20th February the allocations of the 10million support scheme to local authorities will be confirmed!

We hope all of our customers can benefit from this, and for more information on how to protect your business from future floods we have collated a list of useful websites:

BES Commercial Electricity price freeze puts pressure on the Big Six

With Britain's largest energy suppliers expected to announce price increases ahead of winter, BES Commercial Electricity has announced a price freeze on their electricity tariffs until spring 2014. This month SSE, Centrica and npower have already announced an increase in their tariffs and other suppliers are expected to follow suit in the coming days. However, the BES Commercial Electricity price guarantee gives customers peace of mind, ensuring they can continue to focus on their businesses without having to worry about increasing electricity costs.

Founded by Directors Andy Pilley and Michelle Davidson, BES Commercial Electricity is part of the BES Utilities Group which supplies gas, electricity and most recently, telecom- munications to businesses nationwide. Since its formation, the Group of companies has seen strong growth, currently employing over 250 local people.

"The likelihood of further electricity price increases from the Big Six suppliers will undoubtedly increase the pressure on small businesses who are already struggling with rising costs. Because of this, we feel that it can only be beneficial for us to promise our customers that they will not experience any electricity price rises this winter." says Andy Pilley.

"It also means that our customers can continue doing what they do best and focus on running their businesses without having to worry about their electricity bills."

Michelle Davidson comments, "With businesses looking to protect themselves from winter price hikes, the battle is on for smaller suppliers to safeguard consumers during this period of economic hardship."

"As a growing independent energy supplier, we understand that the rise in cost of energy affects us all and many customers are worried in how it will affect their bills."

"BES Commercial Electricity understands exactly what our customers want, and with our flexible, responsive approach, we deliver outstanding customer service and first-rate customer care."
