What we do

Control Costs has key areas of expertise

Energy Savings

Control Costs are specialist business electricity and gas consultants, with a track record of arranging thousands of competitive quotes and negotiating the best deals to save money for our business clients.

We strive to save business clients money on their commercial electricity and gas bills.

Electricity & gas prices constantly change. Not so long ago historical pricing lows were being enjoyed by business consumers. The trend now is one of costly increases. Correct purchase decisions are vital to prevent unnecessary and  exorbitant price hikes.

By comparing business electricity & gas tariffs, we quickly find that significant financial savings can be achieved. More businesses are recognising the benefits of changing their electricity and gas suppliers, but there are still many stuck with overly-expensive deals simply because they haven’t weighed up their options.

Control Costs is aligned to access the UK’s major electricity and gas suppliers most market competitive deals.

We’ll work with you to explore the different lengths and types of contract and present our recommendations to you free of charge. We arrange the necessary contracts for you direct with the suppliers.


Water Savings

As of 1st April 2017, the water market deregulated opening up the potential for savings and benefits to businesses.

The supplier of water was dictated by geographical location. There was very little competition, giving no incentive for suppliers to lower prices or provide adequate customer service. For business consumers, this is now a thing of the past.

Water suppliers will now have to work harder to retain and attract business  customers by offering lower prices and better customer service.

Commercial water market deregulation has been enjoyed by businesses in Scotland since 2008. To date discounts across suppliers have reached 20-25%

We can arrange the comparison of 150 different tariffs from 18 suppliers to find the best deal.
