Energy supply deal with O’Dwyer's
Posted on Monday, 25 June 2012
O’Dwyer Property Management, Ireland’s leading property and facility management company, has negotiated a major new electricity deal for its clients with independent energy supplier, Energia.
The deal will see Energia supply electricity to over 40 apartment schemes managed by O’Dwyer, powering the internal and external lighting, the lifts, and other equipment within their common areas.
Commenting on the deal, Siobhan O’Dwyer, Chairman, O’Dwyer Property Management said:
“We are always looking for new ways to improve value for our customers. With our scale and purchasing power, we negotiate optimum terms for our clients with all suppliers. The Energia deal is below the bulk market rate and represents real savings to our clients. We’ve fixed the price for 12 months as a secondary benefit to protect clients against expected fluctuations in the energy market.
It’s great news for our Owners’ Management Companies (OMCs) and property owner clients / residents. On average, 8% - 10% of the annual service charge goes to electricity so this saving helps minimise the service charges required by our OMC’s. Getting this kind of reduction without compromising the level of service is a great benefit to our clients in the current tough economic climate.”
Alan Mulcahy, Business Markets Manager, Energia commented: “O’Dwyer Property Management is another Irish business that has seen the value that is easily available by switching to Energia. We are delighted to be able to offer them a very competitively priced electricity deal that benefits their clients.”
“In the 11 years that Energia has been operating in the Irish energy market we’ve consistently increased the competitiveness of the market by introducing innovative new products and packages. Whether it’s dual-fuel gas and electricity deals, “green energy” deals, or supplying unmetered electricity to public sector bodies in Ireland, it’s easy for Irish businesses to benefit from competitive energy deals with Energia.”
