Joining the BSA Buying Group's Gas category is all about minimising your gas prices and holding on to the best deal for the right length of time. Our Utilities partners (three in total) keep a constant watch on the whole market and are independent of the individual energy providers.

What are the benefits of joining the Gas category of the BSA Buying Group?

Our Utilities Partners are constantly reviewing the Gas market place to ensure that the very best deal can be secured for BSA Buying Group Members. Given the major supply risks and price volatility in the market the need for specialist support is all the more important. Contact the BSA now to make sure you are minimizing your costs. When Utility prices drop you will be in the privileged position of having specialists on your side who will react immediately to ensure that you enjoy price reductions as soon as possible.

What are the benefits of changing supply?

You will get a better deal if you allow our experts to look around on your behalf. Timing is critical and they have the market knowledge to help your company optimise its utility contract.

What peace of mind do I have that quality will not deteriorate?

Our Utilities partners know the marketplace and only work with the top service providers, known for their value, quality of service, financial security and strength in the market. You will of course be informed of the preferred supplier prior to your decision to join the BSA Buying Group and at all times you are free to decide which supplier is right for your business.

Crucially, the BSA is also overseeing the performance of the Utilities partner to ensure that standards are maintained and ideally improved over time.

Will I need to change my Meter(s)?

You do not need to change your meter. Your local area provider might in the future want to upgrade your meter from analogue to digital - but they will not charge you for this.

How much does it cost to change?

You should not pay to change. All suppliers want your business and know other suppliers would not charge you.

Can I still pay the same way?

Yes. All the suppliers have different payment terms, choose the one that suits you.

Who do I ring when there is an emergency?

Ring your local area provider using the same emergency number you ring at the moment.

Will I see any difference once I've switched supplier?

If you change to a supplier who gives you savings on your bills, you will see the difference financially. There will be no other changes.

Will I receive ongoing support once the change has taken place?

Your appointed consultants will continually support you, helping you with problems or questions that may arise. They will also be happy to provide free advice on your future requirements as the marketplace changes in the future. The BSA Buying Group is also monitoring supplier performance (including service and pricing levels) to ensure that Clients continue to be happy over the long term.

What are the steps to switching supply?

First post us copies of your last bills for electricity supply, and inform us of the expiry date of your existing Utilities contract, assuming you have one. We will then work with our Utilities specialists to analyse your current charges compared to what is available in the marketplace. We will then present our findings. You have no obligation to join the BSA Buying Group unless you wish to progress and enjoy the improved supply arrangement.

What happens if we like your recommendation?

Assuming that you have an existing contract, then on or before the exact deadline date for renewal you must write to the existing supplier on company letter head giving formal notice to terminate the contract. This is to ensure that you are not forced to continue for another year with the supplier's rates. The supplier will not warn you themselves as they seek your renewal, even if it is by default! Each contract that our Utilities partner offers is selected using their experience and knowledge of the market and is specific to your site(s) by meter, consumption, region, profile, payment type & unit rates. Note that our specialists can advise on legal, valid ways to terminate the contract early which may be something that is desirable particularly if your existing contract is uncompetitive.

If I sign a new agreement what happens?

We will let you know exactly when you will be seamlessly transferred to the new supplier. Our Utilities specialists hold the contract end date information on a database, so that they can review market rates on your behalf just prior to contract expiry, to ensure that you continue to obtain the very best rates over the long term.
