How Can Energy Tariffs Help Your Business Save Money?

by Simon Thompson
 

The Federation of Small Business recently claimed that as many as one-third of small businesses highlight energy costs as a barrier to the growth and success of their company. However, 70% of small businesses also say that they find it difficult to compare business energy tariffs and 43% have never switched business electricity supplier.

So, if you want to find out how to save money by grabbing cheaper business electricity rates then read on:

Pick your lightbulbs wisely

If you currently use fluorescent or halogen light bulbs, try swopping them for energy-efficient bulbs such as LED bulbs. And encourage your employees to turn off lights when they are not in use, as this could save you up to £100 per year.

Cooldown

Lights can be one of the main culprits for driving up your energy bills, and heating comes in a close second. This is why it is wise to make sure your heating system is set around four degrees different from your air conditioning system – so they are not fighting against each other.

Keep it clean

If you have a staff kitchen, it is really important to keep it clean – not just from a hygiene point of view, but to help you save money too. Clean appliances, such as fridges, are much more energy-efficient than dirty ones – and just cleaning the dust off can save you up to a fifth of the energy they normally use.

Make your technology work for you

46% of the electricity used in offices is used outside of standard operating hours – so make sure all computers, printers, and other electrical items are switched off at night. It is also a good idea to unplug any mobile phone chargers when they are not in use as well – it sounds like a silly thing to do, but it can really help to save you money.

Compare business electricity suppliers

Of course, the main way you can reduce your energy outgoings is to make sure you are on the best tariff for your business by comparing business electricity suppliers and swapping to a better tariff. While this sounds like it will be time-consuming, it won’t be if you put it all in the hands of the D-ENERGi team. We do all the hard work comparing the best deals on the market, and finding the best tariff for you.
