COVID-19 has been hugely challenging for businesses across Great Britain. As firms begin opening up amid continuing restrictions, many are assessing their financial situation and focusing on how to operate in this difficult new trading environment.
At a time like this, many businesses are looking for ways to save money and create a healthier bottom line. The good news is that there are lots of small changes you can make to your business that add up to a big difference.
Energy is a key expense that businesses need to factor into their outgoings. So, a great way to gain more control and to understand how much energy you’re using, identify ways to reduce your consumption and therefore save money, is by requesting a smart meter installation from your energy supplier.
Smart meters are available for many businesses and enables you to see accurate bills, so each month you only have to pay for the energy you actually use. They also help you to keep better track of your energy and give you the information you need to reduce your consumption. In fact, some business owners who have had one installed say it highlighted areas of spending they weren’t aware of*
Your energy supplier will be ready to fit your smart meter once your eligibility has been confirmed. They will arrange a date and time that is suitable for you and your business requirements. A trained installer from your energy supplier will call round to your premises and fit your smart meter, and after the installation process is complete, they can show you and your staff how your smart meter works and answer any questions.
