  • CCS’s capable, committed team give AUEA excellent support in dealing with energy suppliers, including highlighting and exploiting a range of cost reduction opportunities. The burden of managing energy costs ourselves has been lifted as we can trust CCS whole-heartedly to defend and promote our interests.

  • Through CCS we have gained an energy ‘watchdog’, providing critical information on fuel pricing and hidden charges.
    John Downes Bursar, Independent School
  • My school engaged Cost Centre Services in January 2014. They came highly recommended by a local school who had successfully used their services for a number of years. With the help and support of Cost Centre Services an ongoing difficulty with a major supplier has now been rectified, resulting in a refund. CCS obtained quotes from significantly more competitive energy providers and handled all the paperwork. CCS are passionate about providing a personal service and their support has made a huge difference.

Hospitality Hospitality

  • Investing in an energy management system has definitely been the right decision. EnergiPlan+ shows us where and when our energy is being used highlighting in particular, areas of waste we had never considered. We now understand exactly how to cut our energy costs and embarked on a detailed plan to make significant carbon and cost savings after just a few months. There have also been many unexpected benefits such as assessing equipment life and associated maintenance costs to help our future purchasing decisions. Another, is informing staff of precise energy costs which is hugely effective during energy awareness training. The Cost Centre Services team has been passionate, enthusiastic and dedicated throughout the process providing outstanding service and advice. They created a bespoke plan allowing us to work at a speed we find comfortable. The online system is really simple, effective and easy to use. I highly recommend this system to other businesses looking to properly manage their energy.
    Tarnia Robertson Managing Director Ufford Park Woodbridge Hotel, Golf & Spa
  • I wanted to say a really big thank you for your excellent efforts this week in successfully negotiating with Opus Energy to reduce our outgoing final invoice from £4,997.51 to a much more manageable £3,000.00. They were applying a punitive non-contract rate and standing charge and we are immensely grateful that you argued successfully against this.
    Mrs Emma C Densley Accounts Officer Drayton Old Lodge Limited Norwich
  • CCS have been particularly active and helpful in resolving our energy issues with suppliers, recovering over £14,000 for double charges we were never aware of.
    Richard Polo Director, Joe Allen and Orso Restaurants and Exeter Street Bakery.
  • When I called CCS in 2005 I just didn’t know where to turn, npower wouldn’t provide me with bills but were taking money from my bank account. I didn’t know if I was being overcharged but I knew things weren’t right and that caused me great concern. Within a couple of weeks CCS had straightened things out and succeeded where I had failed over the past two years, they even got a small refund! Another example of the CCS service was when our previous contract expired in October 2009 and CCS managed to secure a new contract with an alternative supplier saving us £3,719pa. That’s nearly 18% saving at a time when we were worried we would have to start paying more for our gas and electricity. We would have no hesitation in recommending CCS and indeed have already done so on a number of occasions.
    Paul Bayfield Director, Bushells Bakery Ltd

Professional Professional

  • Cost Centre Services has secured on our behalf savings of 20% on our Gas, and 13% on our Electricity supply. We’ve just signed three-year contracts to guarantee our tariffs and we can now budget accordingly. I believe any business could potentially benefit from an independent review of their energy spend.
    George Dub Dub & Co Chartered Certified Accountants, London
  • We have used Simon and his colleagues to review our energy costs since 2000. Comparative prices from a dozen or so potential suppliers are resented to us without the hassle of having to contact them all ourselves. We simply select the best deal, sign the paperwork which Cost Centre Services produce and get on with our business. Over the years we will have saved many thousands of pounds.

  • After engaging CCS, we were advised that there were some meter issues which they had unearthed. We were completely unaware of these issues and CCS were diligent and successful in resolving this. They also recovered just under £5,200 from one supplier and around £750 from another. They then went on to save us 50% on our electricity and 6% on our Gas contracts. I can highly recommend their services.

They were also able to renegotiate our current gas contract even though we had passed the cancellation date; saving 14% with a guaranteed 3-year contract.
