Case Study

Redwing Bar & Dining

Redwing Bar & Dining

  • Energy brokering
  • 3-year savings £6,000

The Client

Nestled in the beautiful village of Lympstone near Exmouth, on the Exe Estuary, Redwing Bar & Dining offers something unexpected in leafy Devon.

This is a modern bar, where you can lounge on their sofas with friends, share a Tempura Prawn and Calamari Platter and drink an inexpensive but good quality New Zealand Sauvignon. Or you can sit at the bar enjoying one of their 17 beers and ciders – crystal-clear Proper Job or Hanlon’s Firefly (the local brew) to name but two.

Redwing Bar & Dining is also a stylish restaurant with an extensive menu – sandwiches that will keep you going all day, comforting dishes such as Lamb’s Liver and Bacon or Beer Battered Fish and Chips, or classy main courses from their specials board like Roasted Duck Breast with Peach Sauce.

With over 20 main courses to choose from and 19 wines by the glass (all properly priced not overpriced), freshly prepared food, excellent service, a great atmosphere and fantastic staff who want to please you, the Redwing is earning a reputation for exceeding expectations.

The Challenge

A reduction in energy costs or usage can make a significant difference to any bottom line.
After a free, no-obligation review of Redwing Bar & Dining’s gas and electricity bills, we established that they were using a significant amount of energy at uncompetitive rates.

In a market that’s always rising, the challenge is increasingly to protect your business from increases.
In Redwing Bar & Dining’s case, our task was to save them money for three years on both their gas and
electricity: No small request given market volatility.

The Solution

IU Energy is an independent energy broker, with a string of awards gained over 18 years of trading. These awards are mostly for honest trading and understanding of customer ROI when we’re designing and installing energy saving solutions.

For Redwing Bar & Dining, our independence meant we were able to investigate the whole business electricity market rather than a small cross-section. We recommended the right electricity and gas deals for them, because a low kWh rate does not guarantee a low bill, if there are hidden third party charges (such as transport from the National Grid).

We worked hard to compare the market and found that significant savings were possible. We presented suitable quotes from a range of trusted suppliers.

In addition to saving Redwing Bar & Dining money, IU Energy managed the administration of the contracts and ensured the process was seamless, eliminating stress for the owner.

Throughout the process, Redwing Bar & Dining benefited from a dedicated account manager to answer all their questions. This included consulting with the suppliers, taking care of administration and ensuring they were happy with their new agreements.

The Results

  • Estimated three-year savings on gas and electricity – £6,000

“We’re very happy to say that the electricity and gas contracts IU Energy sourced for us will save us £6,000
over the three-year fixed term. Our Account Manager was extremely knowledgeable and helped us through
what was a complex process, providing us with clear and honest advice. We hope to use IU Energy again when our contracts come up for renewal, and they will be advising us of the best deals in good time, which is also good to know.”
