Business energy 'offers great potential for firms to save'

Between 1 July 2019 and 31 December 2019, at least 10% of people who switched energy supplier for both gas & electricity with Uswitch saved £479 or more.

Firms across the UK may wish to take note of the advice of one expert, who says business energy is one of the areas that offers most potential for savings in the current climate.

One way to achieve a reduction in costs is perhaps to make a switch of energy provider, while adopting techniques to lower consumption is also a shrewd move.

A spokesperson for The Renewable Energy Centre website, explains there are plenty of options open to companies that would like to slash their expenditure.

"Energy consumption is probably one of the biggest areas in which businesses can save money by enforcing a change in typical behaviour regarding electricity, heating and ventilation," the representative notes.

And perhaps the best news of all is that many of the power-saving tactics are relatively low-cost.

The expert's comments come after the government announced four major departments would go green in a bid to show what can be achieved in carbon-friendly offices.
