Energy savings business expands in West Norfolk
A West Norfolk businesswoman is returning to her roots to continue with the expansion of a energy savings business she successfully established in London.
Kerris Hawes, 30, a former KES student, is managing director of Lykerlor Business Solutions, which specialises in saving companies money on their energy bills.
She and her team do all the research for their clients, negotiate the best deals and ensure a smooth transition between suppliers.
Kerris, who was brought up in North Wootton but moved away six years ago to gain business experience and skills, said: “I am delighted to be back home amongst family and friends and look forward to helping local companies save money.
“In the past month alone, we have saved more than £25,000 for businesses in Lynn, which is very exciting for us all.
“Working with our clients we have literally saved businesses of all sizes, thousands of pounds in the past year. Many of our customers have now fixed their energy charges at current rates for the next three to five years and so are protected against expected future price hikes in an extremely volatile market.”
Energy suppliers buys gas and electricity, so it can supply it to customers. The cost to produce electricity varies due to many things but it’s primarily linked to the price of oil, said Kerris.
She said: “The current oil futures markets are showing an expected 20 per cent rise from today’s price compared to January 2019. These expected rises coupled with the increased EMR charges and uncertainty surrounding Brexit are giving us enough cause to suggest to our clients the lock-in longer term contracts at today’s market rates.
“The price of oil has been steadily rising since it hit a ten-year low in January 2016. Therefore, if you are coming out of a 12 or 24 month term contract the comparative price of oil may well be higher today than it was when the last contract was signed. This is especially the case for customers who signed to enter a new contract in January 2016, coinciding with the decade low oil price.”
Kerris will be staging a networking event for businesses to attend in the summer.
