At full operation, a pub has the potential to consume a large amount of energy. Day to day operation requires a lot of lighting and equipment, even more so if you have a working kitchen or B&B rooms as well. Gas and electricity bills can easily cost a small fortune, but what some pub landlords don’t know is that they’re probably paying too much for their energy.
One of the easiest ways for you to reduce the cost of your pub’s energy bills is to run a comparison, and see if you can get a better deal on your energy contract. You can do this quickly and easily with UKPower.co.uk’s business energy comparison service. Then, you could switch onto a more competitive rate and ultimately start paying less for the energy you consume.
As well as switching supplier, there are a number of changes you can make in and around your pub to reduce the amount of energy you use, which will ultimately cut the price of your gas or electricity bill. By addressing the following key areas, you could improve your pub’s energy efficiency and cut energy bills by up to 20%.
Heating and hot water
Cooling and refrigeration

Then, why not try implementing some energy efficiency improvements?
Start with the smaller changes, like switching your light bulbs and establishing an energy-saving culture amongst your staff. Then, you can work your way up to the larger improvements, such as replacing your boiler or fitting double glazed windows if necessary. Ultimately, any changes you make, no matter how big or small, will impact your energy consumption and reduce the amount you pay for energy. And the best part is that any energy savings will go straight onto your bottom line!
