Disillusioned with the way the energy broker industry seemed to be heading, Andrew Richardson – former Deputy CEO of Utilitywise PLC – made an executive decision to set up an online portal that would allow customers to pay fair prices for their energy without being ripped off.
Troocost.com commenced trading in January 2018 and since then has gained approximately 1000 customers, all looking for cheaper energy deals. The portal allows businesses to input their meter details to compare energy renewal prices from a number of suppliers. Prices are presented to customers in a clear & concise format, allowing customers to make an informed decision about their next renewal.
Along with his own 20 years of experience, he is joined by his wife and Commercial Director Rachel Richardson who has also worked in the energy industry for ten years, managing relationships with Industrial and Commercial clients.
With Troocost.com, Andrew and Rachel want to disrupt the energy industry and put a stop to businesses that are continuing to pay a lot more than they need to for their energy. Those that sign up are given the Troo Promise, which is that if troocost.com doesn’t beat a broker’s energy renewal price, the company will pay £100 to the customer’s chosen charity.
As it stands, they’ve always managed to beat the broker’s price meaning that Troocost.com is managing to save businesses on average 30% on their renewals.
Businesses that use Troocost.com are under no obligation to place business through the portal but are encouraged to use it as a benchmarking tool to find the best price. Regardless, the portal shops around suppliers on the customer’s behalf, making prices incredibly competitive.
Presently, Troocost.com is a team of seven although they are actively recruiting staff to fill further sales and operational positions as the company continues to expand.
