Before we can provide you with the right quote for your business electricity, we need to determine what kind of organisation you are. Please can you answer these 3 simple questions:

1. Does your organisation consume less than 50,000kWh per year?

2. Do you have a meter type that is a Profile class 1,2,3 or 4?

3. Does your meter have 3 charge rates per meter or less?

(You should be able to find all this information out from your current electricity invoice but if you’re unsure, please just email us at solutions@brytenergy.co.uk)
