How to improve the next power contract?

Deregulated industrial, commercial power users need - from time to time - to sign new power supply contracts. This is the rule of the game!

My experience, since the beginning of the free markets in Brazil, shows that the vast majority (1) negotiates prices but the contractual wording is the standard of the seller and (2) all this occurs on the eve of the end of the current contract.

There is nothing wrong with these 2 conditions as it is the client's choice when the contract is closed, it means that the parties are in agreement!

What I want to draw your attention to is conditions that could be included in the contract to make it way more interesting and convenient for the customer. This is possible and feasible, whenever the client deals with this matter well in advance.

Here is the deal: try this suggestion. You will certainly be surprised by the results. If you want to explore this line of thought further, don't hesitate to get in touch and we will explore your options!!
