The benefits of joining the Consortium are many, and include some financial incentives:
- By using the bulk purchasing power of the Consortium, members can obtain discounts on insurance.
- Other benefits from joint purchasing include the services of an energy broker.
- We also offer a Portable Appliance Testing service, run by trained volunteers: read more here.
So far the Consortium has been successful in negotiating significant discounts on insurance charges for Community Buildings. It is known that some members have benefited by several hundreds of pounds in discounts whilst the norm is around a reduction of ten percent. On energy we are beginning to see the reductions coming through and some are spectacular. For a ten pound annual membership fee of the Consortium this must be a good deal.
