Our most recent NFU Electricity Buying Group came to a close recently. We are just finalising the numbers but so far it seems to be as popular as ever and it won’t be long until we launch our next quarter group. These buying groups are open to NFU Members and here is how you could benefit from joining a group...
How does it work?
The NFU Energy Service helped members save over £1million in cheaper energy contracts last year and we could help save even more by negotiating lower prices with group purchasing. We are gathering as many NFU members together as possible and tasking suppliers to give us a bulk price for groups. Negotiating prices this way, we can get savings of up to 10% on normal one-off contract prices. These buying groups are exclusively for NFU members.
How do you get started?
There are two easy ways to register your interest in the NFU Electricity Group Buying Scheme;
1. Complete the application form, which you can find here www.fec-energy.co.uk/nfu, with details of your electricity supply and return it to us.
2. Send us a copy of your Electricity bill. Send us your entire electricity bill with your application form and we will register your interest on your behalf. If you send us your electricity bill we will return it back to you.
What happens next?
You will receive a letter from us outlining the next steps, but in the meantime, you may be contacted by other suppliers and brokers trying to get you to sign up to their deals. Please do not to commit yourself until you are aware of the deal being offered by your NFU Electricity Buying Group.
What does this mean for you?
The contract will be no different to any other electricity contract you may have had in the past. Although we cannot guarantee it, we will always look to do our best to obtain the best deal for the group meaning your supplier may change each year.
Your contract will be direct with the chosen supplier and each year we will write to you and ask you if you wish to remain part of the buying group. However, there is no obligation to join the group or to stay in the group.
Want to join in too? Any NFU Farmer and Grower member can register, no matter when their current contract expires. Members can do this by either filling out the NFU Buying Group application form which can be found on the website www.fec-energy.co.uk/nfu or by giving us a call on 0370 845 8458.
