How to close a super electric power contract?

Most of the times, when providing energy consulting, I find that the client closes a new energy contract in the free market:

(1) When there is little time left for the current one to end,
(2) The volume is the average consumption for operating the business plan,
(3) The contract duration is the "usual",
(4) The supplier is the one who offers the best quotation,

And... period!

My proposal, comparatively!

(1) Close a new contract when the price is very attractive,
(2) Scale volume to minimize "difference" transactions,
(3) Consider a term consistent with the prices offered,
(4) Be very careful with potential suppliers,
(5) Explore "cost arbitration between sources" alternatives

The results can be much better!

If you would like to be exposed to a list of simple, tested and valuable suggestions, get in touch and we will explore them!
