With temperatures dropping and the dark nights drawing in, we’re encouraging businesses to prepare for the colder months ahead to avoid hefty commercial energy bills this autumn and winter.
Research by British Gas shows that industrial manufacturers see an increase of 70 per cent in gas and 38 per cent of electricity usage in autumn to winter. While office gas and electricity bills increase by 63 per cent and 50 per cent respectively, we’re keen to help businesses keep energy costs down.
Paul Cobb, Managing Director at here at The Green Energy Advice Bureau, said: “Every year, we take the time to prepare our homes for the colder months but neglect to do the same for our business premises – often leading to unnecessarily large winter energy bills for businesses including retailers, manufacturers, schools and professional services.
“Measures to reduce costs can include encouraging employees to turn off unnecessary lighting and machinery, keeping windows and doors closed to keep in the heat, reviewing historic energy bills to budget for the colder months and using energy-efficient lighting technologies. We want to increase knowledge about the often simple ways businesses can save energy while ensuring businesses are receiving cost-effective utility supplies.”
From conducting an inspection of business premises to ensure that your heating systems are working efficiently ahead of the colder weather, to finding the most cost-effective tariffs for your business, we can work with you to find the best cost saving methods for your organisation.
