Our biggest group yet

Our latest NFU Electricity Buying Group has been our best yet! In fact, we have secured over 580 contracts. This is now our biggest buying group and we were able to secure the biggest cost saving for members to date. The more we grow these groups, the stronger the members buying power becomes and we are looking forward to gaining an even better renewal price for future NFU Electricity Buying Groups. In fact, some contracts are still filtering in so we are hoping to break the 600 mark!

We now have 105 new NFU members as customers benefitting from our knowledge and experience. The success of this group can only mean that we do have a winning formula to build a better contract renewal system for all members and continue to build good savings on renewal rates.

How do the NFU Electricity Buying Groups work?

The NFU Energy service helped members save over £1million through cheaper energy contracts last year. We can now help save even more for our NFU members through group purchasing. We gather together as many NFU members as possible and task suppliers to give us a bulk price for our groups. This way, we can get savings of up to 10% on normal one-off renewal contract prices.
