2.1 Service Level
Changes in energy prices can be unpredictable and will fluctuate up and down on a daily basis. Recent history has shown prices can be significantly and quickly influenced by international supply and demand, events both in the UK and overseas, sustained periods of high or low temperature and levels of sun and wind for renewable energy sources. It is therefore impossible to advise clients whether prices will increase or decrease, exactly when to secure a contract or the duration of contract they should select. Therefore, nothing in Utilitrack’s Market Comparison Report, associated correspondence or conversations with employees, brokers or associates should be taken as advice but purely for information purposes only. The Market Comparison Report is provided to offer a choice of supplier and tariff and to make it easier to compare quotes on a simple ‘like for like’, projected whole cost basis. This enables clients to make their own informed decision.
There are no separate fees charged by Utilitrack Ltd for providing services to clients as Utilitrack’s fees are included within the cost of the chosen contract if the client proceeds. Utilitrack receives a commission uplift from the supplier for securing and administering the contract between the client and the supplier. This compensates Utilitrack for the work that goes into supporting clients through the contract process. This includes bill analysis, verification of meter(s) including updated annual consumption and any technical changes, termination of existing contract if required, inviting a panel of suppliers to tender and offer prices for a new contract, collating tender responses and analysing results, the compilation and presentation of a Market Comparison Report, preparation of new contract paperwork, procurement of a new contract through to being accepted and the meter(s) confirmed as live with a new supplier, on-going customer service and query management, monthly consumption reporting for Half-Hourly meters, management of renewal process. The amount of commission Utilitrack will receive is (xx) pence per kilowatt hour of energy used, which amounts to £(xxx) per annum for the duration of the contract. This uplift forms a small part of the overall unit cost for energy. Utilitrack does not receive any commission on the daily standing charge, climate change levy, vat or other related charges. The amount is also typically detailed in the supplier’s contract with the client. The level of uplift may depend on factors including the contract size, duration and credit rating. You can request further information on how much commission we expect to receive on a contract by contacting our customer services team.
4.1 Expiry of Quotes
To provide clients with access to competitive energy pricing, the quotes offered by suppliers reflect wholesale energy prices. Therefore, they are only valid on the day of the tender and expire at 4pm the same day. Wholesale prices can fluctuate at any time during the day and suppliers retain the right to withdraw quotes at any time with no notice. On very rare occasions this can even be after a contract has been signed by the client but before it has been locked in by the supplier. The Market Comparison Report is designed to assist clients make a swift decision. If a decision is not made and a contract entered on the day of the tender, there is no assurance that prices will not change overnight and therefore may no longer be available to sign. In this event, the tender process would have to be rescheduled for a later date.
