Manchester Grammar School

I was hesitant to ring back yet another energy broker cold call as I get so many and had been with my previous one for 5 years and was happy enough. I’m so glad I did! From the very first conversation I felt that their open and honest approach appealed to me, as I’ve found previously that most energy brokers like to try and make out that the energy market is something not for the faint hearted and too complex to understand. They were able to offer clear explanations of the market and I feel safe in their hands when looking to renew our energy contracts. The open and honest approach to ...

They were able to offer clear explanations of the market and I feel safe in their hands when looking to renew our energy contracts. The open and honest approach to commission rates is also a reassurance when deciding who to use as an energy broker. I hope our relationship will be a long one and find everyone in the company a pleasure to do business with. They truly are a Powerful Ally to have.

Godolphin School

Powerful Allies provide a highly professional service, clearly explaining the complex energy market and how it works to a layman, breaking down the tariffs and fees and ultimately they gave me the confidence to make an informed decision. Renewing energy contracts is a minefield and can be badly done through lack of understanding and lack of time to scrutinise the options. Powerful Allies have a straightforward and honest approach, work with you to find the right solution for you rather than pushing a service and I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending them.

Powerful Allies not only made and continue to make substantial savings for the Estate but, through reconciling all of the meters, have changed what was once an annual accounting nightmare into a mere breeze in the park. Their transparent and friendly energy procurement service has transformed a formerly expensive chore into a cost saving pleasure. I cannot recommend them more highly.

We at Truro School have worked with Powerful Allies for some time. They have been clear and helpful identifying faults in existing contracts and showing where savings can be made. They are a small personal team who are all friendly, professional and always willing to answer my most basic questions. The energy market can be confusing and it is very hard to compare prices from the many brokers who can cold call me on an almost daily basis. It seem that it is standard practice to hide charges and make rates appear cheaper than the later bills will be. Powerful Allies are very open about all the ...

They are a small personal team who are all friendly, professional and always willing to answer my most basic questions. The energy market can be confusing and it is very hard to compare prices from the many brokers who can cold call me on an almost daily basis. It seem that it is standard practice to hide charges and make rates appear cheaper than the later bills will be. Powerful Allies are very open about all the energy costs and find deals that are best fit for the school’s needs. I would be happy to recommend them to other schools who need a clear and straightforward partner in the energy market.

For several years now I have relied on Powerful Allies to source and implement our energy contracts, they have proved to be infallible! They provide me with clear explanations of the market place and always give me comparisons for various suppliers. Tariffs are explained fully and we always feel confident with their recommendations.

James has helped us through some difficult situations with energy supplier contracts, his advice and guidance is always professional and also friendly.

I was personally recommended to speak to Powerful Allies and over the two years I have been dealing with them, have found them straight forward, honest and very efficient. Deals were found, promises were kept and I am now on a better tariff than ever before, which in the current market, is better than you could hope for. Many thanks to the whole team and their personal service.

Peterson Spring

Peterson Spring

We receive calls virtually every day from energy brokers, and so I was initially quite sceptical when James first came to meet me. But their approach is different and transparent; very quickly Powerful Allies were able to set up new contracts which are saving us a very considerable sum, in addition to negotiating a full CCL rebate for us. The process was very simple from my perspective.

Malmesbury Surgery

Malmesbury Surgery

We have recently started to work alongside Powerful Allies who have looked into our current charges for our utilities. They have managed to obtain greatly reduced rates and have provided us with a professional and friendly service. I would say that the changeover process has been very smooth and the service has not only saved me time but also money. I would feel very happy to recommend them.

Dave Grogan (Practice Manager)

Bingham Hotel

Bingham Hotel

We’ve been using Powerful Allies at the Bingham for the past four years and over that time, they’ve saved us a huge amount of money. My main contact is James, who I find very pro-active and not pushy at all – I like that he always asks if I have a preference for a particular supplier before proceeding and is transparent in his fees. He has a very personable approach and is just a great person to deal with.

I am prepared to say and to have widely known that I have found Powerful Allies to be good to do business with. Your approach is straightforward and the explanation of the arcane science of brokered energy purchasing is very thorough.

Many congratulations, I think this is an outstanding result and we are delighted with the work that James and your team have put into this. I think it’s a real breakthrough and ……. we are in a very good place. Thank you very much.

One of the first things I did when I joined my current employer 3 years ago was to look at our energy supply contracts; multiple gas, HH electricity and NHH electricity contracts, all supplied through one of the larger energy brokers.
My first opportunity to change any of the contracts was to look at our NHH electricity contracts, about 46 separate supply contracts in all.
Fortuitously James Robson made contact to introduce Powerful Allies, just at the right time, and I was able to invite him to test the market for me.

One of the first things I did when I joined my current employer 3 years ago was to look at our energy supply contracts; multiple gas, HH electricity and NHH electricity contracts, all supplied through one of the larger energy brokers.
My first opportunity to change any of the contracts was to look at our NHH electricity contracts, about 46 separate supply contracts in all.
Fortuitously James Robson made contact to introduce Powerful Allies, just at the right time, and I was able to invite him to test the market for me.
This gave amazing results. Our existing incumbent broker was recommending we stayed with our existing supplier with a cost increase of circa 18%. James Robson and his dedicated team at Powerful Allies were able to offer a new two year contract with an increase of just 1.67%. Needless to say after some verification and due diligence we opted for the new supplier deal.
That was back in 2016 and since then James has negotiated a 2 year extension to our existing gas contracts (48) with a negligible increase taking us out to 2021 with price certainty.
Now in 2018 James and his team at Powerful Allies are looking at renegotiating our NHH contract for another two years.
Earlier this year they negotiated a new HH contract for two years with an increase of less than 2% whilst the incumbent supplier was offering an eligibly comparable contract proposal for a contract increase of over 12% .
I can therefore fully recommend James Robson and his small dedicated team at Powerful Allies, who offer a dedicated personal service and will negotiate very competitive offers for gas and electricity (HH and NHH) contracts with transparency. Once they secure the offer they let you know what their charges are, so that you know and have visibility of those charges.
Give them a go you won’t be disappointed.

Powerful Allies Ltd have acted as our energy brokers for the last three years ensuring transparent procurement of electricity and gas. In addition, they have provided proactive customer care, meeting our needs with a calm, reliable approach thankfully devoid of the jargon that bestrides the utilities market.

All Hallows Catholic School

Powerful Allies provide a comprehensive and transparent service, they take the time to understand our needs and have worked hard to build a positive relationship.  James and the team are a delight to deal with, and during times of increasing financial pressure on schools they have returned significant savings on our energy costs. I recommend them without hesitation, and encourage other schools and academies to allow Powerful Allies the opportunity to make savings for you too.

For several years now we have relied on Powerful Allies to assist with our energy purchasing, both electricity and gas. They always bring a range of options to the table for consideration and have streamlined our energy purchasing such that our various supply needs are now timed to coincide. James and his team save us many hours every year and ensure that we are obtaining best value for money with regard to energy supplies.

POWERFUL ALLIES How we work

The process of quoting for electricity or gas depends entirely on the type of energy user and the amount of energy used.

For smaller and some medium sized users it is possible to provide prices almost immediately using what is called the “Matrix”, but some intermediaries, (as they are called), will apply inflated margins to the price quoted by a supplier, and some intermediaries will only work with a handful of suppliers. At Powerful Allies we have access to all main energy suppliers and we have a fair price promise which means we work within the basic commission structure. As such, our procurement services are free to our clients, our commission being paid from the energy supplier wholesale margin. We are always willing to disclose our commission on any transaction.

When you have submitted the simple application form, we will contact you to discuss your existing supply. If you have a renewal notice or bill this will help, but it is not essential. We will need certain specific details from you which will enable us

to quote accurately, and existing industry databases enable us to fill any gaps.

At some stage you will be asked to provide a Letter of Authority, LOA on your own business letterhead. This is an essential document which is required by all energy suppliers. We prefer you to see it in advance so you are not misled later in the process. All intermediaries will require an LOA and we are confident the Powerful Allies LOA is the most clear, fair and transparent of the lot.

Armed with the LOA we can then not only provide excellent prices but we can also manage the entire process to include new contracts with your existing supplier, or with new suppliers if switching is preferred.

At no stage are we authorised to enter into new energy contracts on your behalf, all energy contracts will be signed by a representative of your business.
