Case Study

The Crooked Spire

The Crooked Spire

  • Energy brokering
  • 3-year savings £3,456
  • 17.4% saving across gas & electricity

The Client

The Crooked Spire is an attractive, traditional and popular village pub with a large bar area, open fireplace, large screen TV and a pool table.

The pub offers local ales for both locals and visitors to enjoy. The landlord prides himself on a warm welcome and having never knowingly sold a bad pint!

Named after the crooked spire on the local church, the pub is located on the square in the village of
Ermington, near Ivybridge in Devon.

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 The Crooked Spire’s gas and electricity bills, we established that they were using a large amount of energy at uncompetitive rates.

In a market that is always heading upwards, the challenge is increasingly to protect your business from
rises. In The Crooked Spire’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 17 years of trading. These awards are mostly for honest trading and understanding of customer ROI when we’re designing and installing energy saving solutions.

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 The Crooked Spire, without hiding any pass-through charges. Brokers may hide these extra expenses to make their quote look cheaper than competitors. These only appear on your bill after you’ve signed up with a supplier and can be damagingly costly once you’re locked into a deal. With IU Energy, there are never any post-contract surpriseswith the deals we broker.

We worked hard to compare the market and found that significant savings were possible. We presented a quote with different options, from a range of trusted suppliers.

In addition to saving the pub money, IU Energy managed the administration of the contracts and ensured the process was seamless, taking the stress away from the pub owner.

Throughout the process, The Crooked Spire benefited from a dedicated account manager to answer all their questions, consult with the suppliers, take care of the administration and ensure they were happy with their new agreements.

The Results

  • Estimated three-year savings on gas and electricity – £3,456
  • Estimated three-year percentage savings – 17.4%

“We are really happy with the £3,456 we saved with the new contracts. It was great being able to meet up face to face and our account manager was brilliant – very knowledgeable and provided us with sound, useful advice. We trust IU Energy and hope to use them again when our contracts come up for renewal. They’ve helped us save both time and money.”
