Haringey Cost Savings Programme Case Studies

Latin Stop (Westbury Ave)

Latin Stop"The Place Support Partnership (PSP) team met us and provided very useful information about our electricity costs with their review. Within one hour, PSP was able to pinpoint savings of £2000 compared to the renewal offer from our current supplier.

"The PSP team's simplified approach freed up valuable time for me to focus on other aspects of my business which was greatly appreciated. I am also eager to learn about similar programmes in the future as well."

Victoria Stakes Pub"Our business has a pub, yard and first floor dining room for private parties with its own bar, and the facilities to have live music. I was contacted by Place Support Partnership to arrange a face to face meeting with their consultant Rishi. I did think this might just be a broker service but it was much more than that. Rishi was very knowledgeable about the current utility market, and the service was completely impartial. I found the information provided very clear and straightforward.

"I believe this service would be invaluable to businesses with less financial experience than us. At no time was any pressure applied and the advice was to stay with our current provider as they where offering the best deal. I would definitely be happy to use the service again."
