    Your at-a-glance guide to Drax

    Drax power overview

    Fixed plans allow you to secure your green business energy up front.  You know what you are paying and you don’t have to think about energy costs. It also helps manage your budgets which is so important when it comes to your businesses bottom line.  Or, the company offer a flex plan which allows you to control when and how you buy power. These plans are highly customizable and are recommended for businesses that prefer to track the market.

    The company is keen to make sure customers get the best plan and as such it wants to understand how your business works. Like Utility Bidder, it also avoids jargon and provides plans in a transparent and easy to understand way – always a bonus.

    Drax Power have a dedicated team to help you tailor the correct energy solution for you and it promises to deliver maximum value with minimum effort on your part. However, whatever the size of your business, it offers a bespoke service so that you get maximum value from your energy plan.

    You may be eligible to use a Demand Side Response (DSR) which essentially allows you to switch your business energy to times of high or low prices. This financially incentivized process encourages business to reduce electricity use at peak times – this can be quite complicated and so Haven Power will manage the system for you.

    The company also goes beyond the smart meter and has an Energy Optiminsation programme which is a tiered structure of a business energy efficiency audit through to recommendation and implementation. This offers savings of both energy consumption and bills and helps your business demonstrate its energy efficiency.

    It’s also good to know that Haven Power is part of the Drax Group and as such sources most of its electricity from Drax Power Station – the biggest renewable generator in the UK.  Drax has upgraded half of its generation units to use compressed wood pellets (biomass) instead of coal. It also owns Cruachan Power Station, one of only four pumped hydro storage stations in the UK. The Drax portfolio also includes the Lanark and Galloway run-of-river hydro schemes.

    Haven Power is based in Ipswich and is keen to support local initiatives such as local charity Eden-Rose Coppice Trust.  The company helped transform a neglected woodland in Ipswich into a safe retreat for people with disabilities and life-limiting diseases. It also works with other businesses in an initiative to make Ipswich a ‘Smart City.’
