How can I save money on my gas and electric bill?

Many businesses throughout the UK have been hit by the rising costs of energy. What’s more, these high costs do not appear to be falling back to ‘normal’ levels anytime soon. Nordstream 1 is currently running at 20% capacity, MPs are stating that household bills for January 2023 will top £500, and an American recession looms on the horizon. With business energy not subject to a price cap, the outlook remains very bleak for many UK businesses.

How to save money

In preparation, most of the UK have performed energy audits to varying degrees. Either through accredited energy assessors such as Green Zone Surveys, or through internal management. Whilst these energy saving actions are very important, they will only go so far in saving money on gas and electric bills. Furthermore, Martin Lewis has been an advocate for energy saving, and has provided many suggestions on ways households and businesses alike can save money. For more information on ways to save money on energy bills, Business Energy Claims suggests visiting Money Saving Expert for more information. In addition Harvard University, and other similar thought leadership institutions, have provided guidance on ways businesses can save money on their gas and electric bills:

  1. Shutdown your computer
  2. Choose the right light
  3. Unplug idle electronics
  4. Use a power strip
  5. Turn the lights off

Whilst the above offers simple, basic solutions, the affects of multiple users can really compound over the life of energy contracts. With prices continuing to rise, basic solutions really can be the most cost effective.
