Control Energy Costs Ltd
Neil Freeman and Phil Ager of Control Energy Costs (CEC)revisit Tyneside Safety Glass for a meeting with Finance Director Trevor Storey to confirm details of a £27,000 refund, and discuss an ongoing working relationship.
CEC were invited for an initial meeting with Managing Director Chris Hannant at Tyneside Safety Glass with Chris having been impressed by the number of Glass Manufacturers CEC were already working with. CEC’s Liam Conway presented services and a working arrangement was agreed on the basis that they didn’t think we would find much but as only paid by results, giving CEC the opportunity to review their arrangements was a ‘no-brainer’
CEC’s initial review highlighted an issue with the underlying Distribution Charges being incorrect at one of their sites, and having taken the matter up with Northern Power Grid on behalf of Tyneside Safety Glass, a refund of £27,000 has now been secured with a further £9000 to follow. Correcting the issue has also resulted in an ongoing saving of £6000/annum
Whilst Tyneside had retained the services of a third party advisor for many years, CEC were able to find savings and refunds over and above their work and are now looking to work with CEC in managing their flexible energy contract for the future.
Trevor Storey, Finance Director commented ‘I’ve been delighted with the extensive analytical work that CEC have carried out. From initially meeting Liam Conway to having the report delivered by Neil Freeman & Phil Ager, the attention to detail and the drive to secure the refunds and savings for us has been exceptional. Energy for us is a significant cost and knowing it’s been looked after so diligently is comforting to us as a business’
Chris Hannant, Managing Director praised the tenacity of CEC ‘ We were happy to engage with CEC and see what they could do for us, knowing they work with so many other glass manufacturers gave us confidence they knew what they were doing. They’ve definitely proved their value to us helping us secure a complex electricity refund going back 6 years’
