The Energy Basket uses the bulk buying power of the Church to obtain competitive prices for your gas and electricity.
When you enter the Energy Basket you will enjoy its benefits:
Save money - a price based on wholesale energy purchasing
Save time - it’s a long term solution. There’s no need to renegotiate every time a contract comes up for renewal
Save the environment - 100% of the electricity in the Energy Basket is green, all from UK-based renewable sources. We’ve been working with the Basket provider to do this at no extra cost to our members
Feel supported - our wonderful customer service team can help you every step of the way
The price of the Basket is fixed annually and each year our members have the opportunity to leave the Basket, but not many parishes do due to the competitive rates enjoyed, over 98% of parishes remain in the basket year on year.
Last time we benchmarked savings using the Energy Basket, we estimated that gas sites were saving 10% on average compared to alternative quotes, whilst electricity supplies were saving around 8.3%.
When a parish’s energy contract is up for renewal, the quotes they receive from other companies will depend on the market at that exact time. If the energy market is at a low point, the prices will be really good, but if the energy market is spiking high the quotes will be expensive.
At Parish Buying we buy energy for the Basket throughout the year, so the cost of energy for our members won’t suddenly change. It averages out over the year providing churches and cathedrals with a competitive price. It may not always be the very cheapest, but we’re confident in our ability to save churches money over time.
