Businesses switch back to lower prices and better service

Thursday, February 23, 2012

With a local heritage stretching back over 80 years Power NI (formerly NIE Energy) knows the ins and outs of doing business here. After a decade of competition, they remain the largest electricity supplier to the local SME sector powering over 30,000 small businesses.

They are also seeing more and more customers return, with over 500 switching back in the last year alone. Power NI’s Business Sales and Marketing Manager Alan Egner explains how they are helping retailers through these tough times: “We know the local retail sector is under pressure with companies seeking to save money and make their businesses as efficient as possible. “Our recently launched cash-back contracts have proved a big hit with customers and have literally been flying off the shelves, to use a retail term.

These give savings on top of the usual tariff and direct debit discounts and coupled with our recently reduced tariff rates have helped us tempt quite a few customers back from other suppliers. “We also offer special deals and grants on selected energy saving equipment including LED lighting which is being hailed as the way forward for lighting in both commercial buildings and in the home. LED lights use around 80% less energy than traditional lights and last far longer, reducing lamp replacement costs. “These are some of the practical ways in which we can help small businesses save energy and money.”

In conclusion Alan states: “With our unrivalled history and heritage as an energy supplier in this part of the world, Power NI’s customers know they are in safe hands. We look forward to welcoming more customers back to the fold and continuing to provide businesses here with great value for money and the highest standards of customerservice.” For more details on saving energy and money in your business, contact Power NI at 08457 455 455 or visit
