If you have a business, it is more than likely, you may not have to time to search the market for the best price. So why not let a professional navigate the difficulty of contract negotiation for you, saving you time and money. After all, the old saying is true, “time is money”. TPI’s have top notch knowledge of the energy market as they negotiate contracts daily which means they will be able to find a far better price.
TPI’s will be there to take away the stress and resolve the problem for you. Should a problem arise, working with a TPI means you will be able to speak to someone who will explain it in simple terms and resolve the problem based on your specific needs rather than a PCW that simply offers one service. If you don’t use a TPI, it may take your hours to speak to someone that may not give you all the information you need subsequently causing unwarranted stress.
You wouldn’t sign a contract in a foreign language without a trusted party and the same applies for energy contracts. Energy contracts are becoming more complicated, especially during the energy crisis. A TPI can translate your energy contracts into simple terms and help you understand the T&C’s before signing into a contract. Prices are fluctuating daily during the current market conditions which is where a TPI comes in useful. A TPI will cut through all the paperwork for you, explaining the key points such as volume tolerance, termination clauses, etc.
We recommend finding a reliable TPI to shorten the process and limit an increase in costs. By adding another link to the chain, this makes the process more expensive but where is this made up. Is it the uplift or is it added to your contract?
