How do the NFU electricity buying groups work?

The NFU Energy service helped members save over £1million through cheaper energy contracts last year. And now we can help save even more for our NFU members through group purchasing.

We are gathering together as many NFU members as possible and tasking suppliers to give us a bulk price for our groups. This way, we can get savings of up to 10% on normal one-off contract prices.

These buying groups are exclusively for NFU members.
