Opus Energy have recently broken into the “big six”, making them the 6th biggest independent supplier of UK business energy. Currently supplying over 260,000 businesses, they intend to double their current size within the next 4 years but insist they are making customer service a priority. Their claims are backed up when we look at their customer statistics, with over a 90% customer retention rate, and 90% of calls answered in 30 seconds or less, it seems like Opus energy are on the up. But can switching save your business money?
“We know that sorting out your business’ electricity isn’t at the top of your list, so we make it as simple as possible”
Opus’ only demographic is business, so they are equipped to deal with your specific business needs and like to keep everything as transparent as possible, even sending you a free smart meter to help keep on top of your usage and see exactly where your money is going.
As renewable energy seems to be the way forward, Opus are not going to be left behind. Between April 2013 and March 2014, 91% of energy supplied to Opus Energy customers came from cleaner, low-carbon sources.
Opus are committed to helping you grow your business, even maintaining an information hub online full of tips and tricks to grow your business and save money.

“An Opus Energy smart meter allows you to accurately monitor and control energy consumption, removing the inconvenience of taking readings and helping to reduce energy expenditure.”
With the smart meter it automatically takes a monthly meter reading so you don’t have to, it records real-time electricity usage, which leads to accurate monthly billing data and the benefit of online data analysis.
As they only supply businesses they like to have as much information as possible on your bills, but thankfully they explain it all very clearly, and it never hurts to know exactly where your money is going.
Online, Opus say you can pay in a “number of ways “ but the only way that seems to be available is by logging on to your online count and either paying your bills as they arrive, or setting up a direct debit, which is the direction most businesses seem to be heading with their bill payment systems. Online bills are simple and easy to navigate through, with an option for you to view any previous bills and queries.
For any issues you may have there is a dedicated contact number on your bill, and with 90% of calls answered in 30 seconds or less, it seems easy to reach out with any queries you may have.
