Energy efficiency tips for business

There are a number of ways you could save money on your gas and electricity bills. Many companies throughout the UK use Utility Saving Expert to compare business energy prices to find a more competitive deal.

Take regular meter readings

To ensure your business energy bills are accurate, you should take regular meter readings rather than rely on estimations. Estimations aren’t helpful to business owners for the following two reasons:

  • You may be overpaying for your gas and electricity supply
  • You may be underpaying and as a result will receive a large bill later on

Taking regular meter readings will ensure you’re only paying for the energy you are making use of day in day out. Most providers, through online account management tools, will allow you to submit your monthly meter readings. This data can be used to track your energy usage on a monthly basis, enabling you to better forecast future expenditure.

Many companies now also have smart meters for business installed within their premises. These provide a number of advantages in comparison to conventional meters. Larger firms will likely be making use of half hourly meters due to their high gas and/or electricity consumption.
