The Consumer Council helps small businesses and not-for-profits find the best energy deal

The Consumer Council is helping small businesses and not-for-profit organisations save money with a new online electricity and natural gas price comparison tool.

The tool will make it easy for small businesses in Northern Ireland to find the best electricity and gas deals by comparing tariffs from all available suppliers in the one place.

Paulino Garcia, Head of Energy Policy at The Consumer Council, said: “The COVID-19 crisis has hit most of our small businesses, charities and the voluntary sector hard. As our retail sector begins to open, The Consumer Council’s new and easy to use online energy price comparison tool will help small businesses, charities and voluntary groups in Northern Ireland compare prices from all the Northern Ireland electricity and gas suppliers and switch to the best deal.

“By switching, small businesses could save up to £2,159 and £770 on the annual electricity and natural gas bills. These savings will be especially welcomed by small businesses facing substantial financial pressures due to the COVID-19 crisis.”

Commenting on the new tool, Brendan Kearney, Federation of Small Businesses Region Group Chair, said: “This tool is a great step forward in helping SMEs to take control of this area of their overheads and reduce costs by scanning the market and switching to better deals. We very much welcome this initiative by The Consumer Council.”
