Negotiate A Better Deal With The Retailer

On negotiating a better deal, there are some factors which need to assess by the consumers. These are:

  • Fees and charges relating to the bill

Check rates, which charged by the retailer, especially supply charge and the rate per kWh. These charges have a huge impact on energy bill costs. Ask the current retailer if it’s possible to lower the rates if it’s too expensive. If still unsatisfied, switch retailer with lower charges.

  • Benefit period

Contracts are typically last for 12 to 24 months. Many retailers do have exit fees to pay when a consumer terminates his contract earlier. To avoid this charge, choose standard retail than the market one.

  • Discount conditions

Most market retail contracts are with conditional discounts. For example, a consumer is eligible for discounts if he meets a certain condition.  Some conditions like pay-on-time and pay-in-full. Ensure to meet conditions set by the retailer to enjoy discounts. Do self-assessment, if it’s hard to meet the conditions, it’s better not to accept the offer and look for another one.

  • Green initiatives

Many consumers support renewable. If this is the case, choose retailer which promotes renewable than fossil fuels and coals.
