Business Water Procurement

GEAB water procurement offers your business greater control and advice on reducing operating costs and increasing profits with a water supplier and strategy tailored to your business, eligibility, and requirements

Finding the best water prices for your business

The deregulation of the water market in Scotland in 2008 and in England in 2017 unlocked opportunity for GEAB to shop for and negotiate the best deals for our clients. Whether water is crucial to your business or you’re looking to reduce general operating costs, along with supporting environmental concerns, deregulation provides eligible businesses, charities and public sector clients, with the opportunity to switch water retailer and consider better deals which may offer your business significant savings.

The open market also enables businesses operating premises in more than one region to consolidate their bills. So, if you currently operate across various regional water suppliers, with multiple contracts, consolidating your bills will make it much easier to manage water costs and evaluate overall business usage.

Why change?

Eligible businesses, charities and public sector clients are no longer restricted to buying water services from their regional water company.

Greater control in appointing a water retailer across a competitive market brings many opportunities for your business. We work with clients to help businesses become more water efficient and avoid wastage, take advantage of tailored services, including consolidated billing, experience improvements to customer service, and lower their bills and charges.

Do water prices vary depending on region?

Your water and wastewater services are still provided by your regional wholesaler, who are responsible for ensuring a continuous supply and maintaining the local network. However, since deregulation of the market you are now free to choose your retailer, who is responsible for billing, account management, water efficiency and the provision of other additional services. The wholesale rate of water is set by your wholesaler based on a range of different factors, so customers can expect to see regional variation.

What is energy efficient water tech?

These devices save water and energy by minimising the use of heated water. Water efficient taps are a great way to save on water. Automatic and sensory taps are also a good option, eliminating the risk of taps being left to run. If you can, install a rainwater harvesting system for any landscaping and cooling needs.

How can I encourage staff to practice water-saving?

Place signs around the business to promote water-efficient culture and remind employees to be conscientious of use. Encouraging staff to take simple steps such as only using water needed in the kettle, running a dishwasher only when full, and fully turning off taps. Encourage employees to get involved and contribute ideas towards water-saving goals.
