Does your council buy electricity for street lighting and/or buildings? Do you pull your hair out when you phone round for quotes trying to explain what a parish/town council is and what unmetered supply is?
If you’ve answered “yes” to both questions then today is a good day. ALCA has created a partnership with Northamptonshire-based Clear Utility Solutions (CUS) to take the pain out of buying electricity for member councils.
ALCA has been working with Chris and Ben at CUS, to design a service specifically tailored to parish and town councils across the West of England area. CUS is a specialist in unmetered supply and they know and understand the Local Council market.
Simply visit the dedicated portal on the CUS web site to get started – https://www.clearutilitysolutions.com/alca-partnership
There are two options: if you have all your paperwork ready and just need a quote choose the Self Serve option. If you need help to go through the process choose the Easy Serve option and one of the CUS team will get in touch with you.
The plan is to create a buying group of councils meaning that as well as getting great service, member councils will benefit from exclusive pricing too. And the more councils that use it, the better the prices will be.
Clear Utility Solutions undertakes to always offer a green energy solution whenever they tender for an energy supply and can even calculate approximate carbon savings based on your annual usage data should you wish. Their focus on helping councils to find greener energy has already lead to 86,719kg CO2e being prevented from being emitted and this figure is set to grow further.
Clear Utility Solutions have strong partnerships with six 100% renewable energy suppliers meaning they are able not only to offer a broad range of competitive pricing but are able to place local councils with a variety of clean suppliers making sure they receive the best deal to suit them.
I hope that you find this brand new member benefit of use and that it helps remove one of your stresses. We will continue to work on finding solutions for all the others!
