Benefits of Switching Your Retail Business Energy

Many retail businesses make the mistake of treating energy bills as a fixed cost. With so many competing priorities to manage, companies up and down the UK neglect to compare energy provides to see if they can get a better deal.

If it’s been a few years since you reviewed your energy prices, you could be significantly overpaying for your business gas and electricity. As with insurance, there is very little reward for loyalty in the energy market. This means that renewal prices are often much higher than the best deals available.

In fact, small businesses switched to rollover contracts can pay rates 80% more expensive than those on negotiated deals.

Energy Saving Tips for Retail Businesses

Even retail businesses on the best energy deals can reduce their gas and electricity costs with some simple energy saving tips.

Getting hot under the collar?

Heating makes up over 60% of the average retail store’s energy bill. During hot or cold weather, that can be an even higher. Your shop needs to make sure that customers experience an ambient temperature so that they feel comfortable. It is crucial that you take steps to ensure your business is not overpaying for the power you use in your shop, it is also cost-effective to consider your overall energy consumption.

By ensuring that you use a timer – so that the heating system is not running when it doesn’t need to be - and keep the average room temperature at around 20 °C, you can make your store more energy-efficient and reduce your bills.

Brighten your space

After heating, lighting is the second biggest user of electricity for most retail stores. Retailers – particularly fashion and furnishings – will know the critical value of good lighting for displays to show off your products to their best.

Great lighting doesn’t have to mean high electricity bills. Switching to LED lighting is a great way to reduce your bills. LED bulbs are up to 70% more energy-efficient than traditional incandescent bulbs.

Simple steps, like making sure your lighting is turned off when not in use or set on timers or motion sensors can help make sure you don’t overspend on your next electric bill.
