Can I Switch Water Supplier As A Business?
Running a successful company is all about keeping an eye on your finances and making sure you’re not spending money unnecessarily across your operations – and, all too often, businesses aren’t aware of how much water they’re using it, where they’re using it and whether they’re paying too much for it.
Since 2017, eligible companies across England have been able to switch water supplier following deregulation of the market, which brought it in line with that of Scotland, which has been open since 2008.
This means that you are now able to find a supplier that better suits your needs, one that has experience of working with companies in your sector or industry and which knows how you are likely to use water resources now and in the future.
It might seem like a hassle moving from one supplier to another, but it’s important to remember that there will be no disruption to your water supply so business operations won’t be affected in this regard… and there are all sorts of benefits associated with switching, so you may want to start looking into it if you’re keen to save both water and money in 2021.
The main reasons you might decide to switch are seeing cost savings through better tariffs with another retailer, enjoying better service levels and quicker responses to enquiries, more accurate billing, value-added services in addition to your core water supply and wastewater services, and consolidation of your water supply across multiple sites and regions.
Bill reduction is also another major benefit of making the switch and you could potentially be able to reduce your water bills by between ten and 18 per cent, depending on the location of your premises – so it could certainly be worth investigating in the new year.
And, of course, let’s not forget about the planet. There can be no denying now how damaging human activity is on the environment and we all need to start doing our bit to live and work more sustainably.
Water stress and scarcity is a growing global problem and will certainly affect us here in the UK, so businesses can switch to help protect this precious resource and ensure its security for future generations.
Switching can mean you’re more likely to find and repair water leaks across your site, leaks you may not currently be aware that you have. An incredible three billion litres of water is lost through leakage every day in England, which is a huge amount, and you could be contributing to this without even knowing about – wasting water and money.
