Power NI – the natural choice for farmers

Friday, April 27, 2012

Having powered farms for over 80 years Power NI, Northern Ireland’s leading electricity supplier, is well aware of the challenges in the farm industry here.

John McCay, Power NI’s Farm Manager, explains how the local electricity company can give the sector a helping hand to cut costs. “Power NI is the only supplier here to offer a dedicated farm energy service to its customers and has established itself as the natural choice for farmers when it comes to choosing a supplier.

Over 600 farms and businesses have switched back to Power NI in the last year, seeking real value for money and savings that last from a supplier they know and trust.

Dairy farmer John Drummond from Bangor said: “When I opened a new dairy unit, Power NI was on hand to help and got everything sorted in no time – including setting me up on the best value tariff.

John was my first port of call as he is so well known in the farm community. Being a farmer himself John knew exactly what we needed and it’s definitely reassuring to know that he’s always there to help.” John commented: “For us at Power NI, it’s the little things that make the difference, like offering a bit of friendly advice when you’re making changes on the farm. We know how hard farmers work and don’t want to make life any more difficult for them. “That’s why we’ve created products and tariffs to match customer’s needs.

Our Farm Nightsaver tariff is specifically designed for farmers, and can help them save up to 10% on their bills. And if you pay by Direct Debit you can save a further 4% and avail of our new Energy Online service.” John concludes: “I know how hard it has been in the farming business recently but Power NI’s discounts, tariffs and energy saving tips help make it easier for farmers to do what they do best – delivering world class produce.”
