Utility Options

Saving energy is our business

Bira has teamed up with Utility Options to provide our members with lowest cost quotations in the market and help you switch with no additional cost.


There is vital need for small businesses to have a specialist company with integrity and track record that would help reduce overheads. Utility Options is a family run firm and who pride themselves on service and commitment.

Bira members save an average of £1,030 when they switch their utilities*
How your business will benefit:
  • Free electricity, gas and telecoms ‘health check’ (login to your member area to download the form)
  • Savings of up to 62% on utilities
  • A detailed contract and service agreement, the negotiating of which all too often takes up so much of members’ time
  • Best prices from the marketplace and a full quotation with a recommendation
  • Checks on contract information and end dates, making sure that the very best quote is accepted at the best price to tie in with the start of a new contract

(*Figure based on service users that switched all three utilities; gas, electricity and telecoms. Figures taken on 09/10/19. Contact membership@bira.co.uk for T&C’s for all Utility Options facts and figures.)


Business Continuity is a pressing issue for many bira members, especially when it comes to communications.

Your telecoms provider should be able to apply a temporary divert on your phone line(s), but if you need anything more complicated, or are trying to replicate multiple lines/extensions, then Utility Options’ internet telephony products could help.

We can set up temporary telephone numbers and cloud-based extensions in minutes, which can be accessed from smartphones, tablets, PCs, Macs and laptops, as well as dedicated phone hardware, at any location that has an internet connection.

We can emulate all of the major business phone system functions, including Ring Groups, Direct Dial, Voicemail, Digital Receptionist etc, all in the cloud at the click of a mouse button.

To help businesses in these unprecedented times, we are pleased to announce that we are waiving termination fees for the foreseeable future, and are offering services with no minimum contract length.

If you need a telecoms solution for remote working, get in touch, as we have a range of options available for every different scenario.

I use Utility Options for both stores and they have certainly saved me money on my phone, broadband and  electricity bills.

But worth more than its weight in gold is that I get to speak to the lovely Chis and Jonathan. They deal directly with the Providers, so I never have to and to me that is the highlight of using Utility Options
