WANT to give your business renewed energy?
Then why not cut hundreds of pounds from your fuel bills by having a smart meter installed? A new report suggests businesses will see a reduction in costs on gas and electricity by around five per cent once the installation has taken place.
Firms that receive advice on how they become more energy efficient based on smart meter data could see annual savings of between seven and 15 per cent on energy bills.
Smart meters will also put an end to estimated bills, saving businesses an estimated £30m in lost time through having the meter read. It reduces the risk of under or overpayment too. By 2019 it is estimated that all homes and businesses will have the meters installed – with most suppliers already having rolled them out to customers.
They will put firms in control of costs which is a priority of businesses in the present economic climate.
