How Does a Business Energy Broker Work?

A business energy broker builds relationships with energy suppliers to offer their customers better business energy prices than they could find on their own.

In return, energy brokers will receive a commission on the energy their customer uses. Your final pricing quote will always include any commissions with no additional costs or brokerage fees payable.

You won’t receive a separate invoice for any services provided by your energy broker unless you have agreed specialist tendering products unique to your company.
