Private wire: how you benefit
Energy prices have been increasing significantly, with the majority coming from uncontrollable non-commodity (third party) charges. Combine this with a volatile market and prices are set to increase by a further 40% in the next few years. Consultus EnergyResilience means you can avoid all that.
- Guaranteed cost reductions up to 25% in electricity spend from the moment you start generating with your own private, localised grid
Consultus can guarantee a fixed or indexed discount rate for anything from one year to the full 15-year lifespan of a generating plant – substantially below what organisations currently pay.
Your questions answered
Do I need to invest in equipment and cover other capital costs?
No. We explore your energy requirements, site set-up and other issues in detail then following agreement we plan, fund, acquire, install, commission, operate and maintain local generating plant on your behalf. You benefit from the lower cost energy being generated, with no upfront investment required.
What happens if the generating plant breaks down?
This is extremely unlikely: we use only tried-and-tested equipment backed by a programme of preventative maintenance. Plants are built with redundancy so any single generator failure will not affect you. But it makes sense to plan for all contingencies. In the unlikely event of a total loss of plant power, an auto changeover switch instantly moves you back onto grid. With this uninterrupted power supply, you would experience no downtime.
What happens if gas prices go up?
The Consultus approach provides a ‘layer of insulation’ between your operations and market volatility. Part of our job is to manage the gas price – and we have decades of experience in outperforming energy markets. Commercial models are available for fixed rates for longer periods, indexed trackers and periodic price reviews. All will be at RPI or below inflation.
What happens if we don’t need all the energy being produced?
This is not a problem or concern for you. The main objective is to ensure you have all of the clean electricity you need, when you need it, and at lower cost, helping you move closer to net zero. Any additional energy produced is trickled back onto the grid as oversupply, so will not affect you or be charged to you.
What happens if we move from a site where generating plant is located?
All units can be disconnected and moved to another site if needed.
