Opus Energy holds the key to Housing Association partnerships Wednesday 7 May 2008 PDF Print The Metropolitan Housing Group renews energy contract with Opus Energy Opus Energy a leading independent supplier of electricity to UK businesses secured a contract to supply part of the energy requirement for the Metropolitan Housing Group with electricity for a second year running, proving that excellent and bespoke customer service is the key to doing business with housing associations. Opus Energy is a popular choice with Housing Associations, which now total an estimated £7.5million in revenue per annum for the independent supplier. Experience in the sector is vital and enables Opus Energy to provide a tailored service to suit the needs of each housing association. An Opus Energy corporate account manager worked closely with The Monarch Partnership, who is the Metropolitan Housing Group’s specialist energy brokers and was able to provide the most economical pricing tariff for the contract that was up for agreement by the Group. In a time of volatile energy prices, Opus Energy found a solution by recommending the security of a fixed price tariff at a competitive price.

He said, "We understand the issues that affect Housing Associations and recognise budgeting needs, as well as being able to rely on clear, accurate bills. We have built up a wealth of experience from working directly in the sector and specialise in the supply and management of Housing Associations’ electricity portfolios.” Bernard Tominey, Procurement Director from the Metropolitan Housing Group said, " Opus Energy was able to assess the needs of our company in detail and suggest a tailored price plan with the The Monarch Partnership that now allows us to budget effectively for our energy requirement."
