ways to save on your energy bills...

Know your contractual position -

27% of UK businesses are sitting on either an inflated variable tariff or an emergency rate. Do you know when the contract ends for each of your energy supplies and sites.  When was the last time you checked what type of contract you have, what you need to do to terminate it and what happens when that contract expires?

Beat your relevant date -

Your relevant date is the last day on which you can enter a valid termination notice and either switch to a new tariff or change supplier at the end of your contract without incurring expensive variable or out of contract rates, you will always find this along with your actual contract end date on your bill.  Did you know a termination notice can be posted at any point during your contract lifetime in line with your supplier’s terms and conditions?  

Take advantage of the Smart meter roll out -

Your current supplier is obligated to provide you with a smart meter free of charge.  Smart meters put you in control of your energy helping you to see in near real time where you can save on your energy usage.  Take a look at our help guide on Smart Metering to see how this innovative technology can save your business money.

Manage your energy consumption -

It sounds obvious, but many businesses are simply too busy to consider what they can physically do to save energy and money, often small business owners are unaware of the cost implications of leaving appliances running unnecessarily.  Simple habits such as switching everything off at night or keeping an eye on that air conditioning unit in the summer and thermostat in the winter can make a big difference.  Make sure you have the latest energy efficient bulbs fitted especially in locations where lights are often left on for long periods, a modern LED bulb can emit the same light as a traditional 60 watt incandescent bulb for as little as 15 watts a cost saving of 75%!

Upgrade your appliances -

You might also like to think about replacing old appliances such as heaters or fridges as these become less efficient over time and modern equipment is inherently far more energy efficient.  You can find information about an appliance's energy consumption on the label and by following our helpful guide, you can work out the cost to your business.  Your old boiler may also be guzzling energy at a frightening rate.   Please do your sums however as it is important to consider how long it might take a new piece of equipment to “pay you back”, your short term cash flow position might mean you can get more bang for your buck elsewhere in your business.  Don’t forget to be kind to the environment and recycle your old equipment though!

Arrange your new contract in plenty of time -

Nobody likes rushing around to get things done and often this is where a quick decision can turn out to be costly to your business.  Make sure you have chosen your new supplier and tariff at least 30 days before your existing contract expires to make sure you have time to complete the switch by your contract end date.  Don’t worry if you can’t, our team are on hand to recommend a fast moving supplier and balance any cost implications against what you might pay on variable or out of contract rates to ensure you still get the best possible deal for your business.

Wading through all the information in an effort to understand your position and the wider energy market can be a tiresome and intimidating task.  Why not kick back by giving us a call and letting our expert team do all the hard work for you.

Green business energy

In the UK, the government has established an ambitious goal to slash greenhouse gas emissions by 80% (compared to 1990 levels) by 2050. While this objective presents a considerable challenge, both individuals and businesses can contribute significantly by implementing substantial changes.

Businesses consume considerably more energy than individual households. Just envisage the collective impact if your business were to join thousands or even millions of others nationally in transitioning to renewable energy sources. When coupled with enhancements in energy efficiency, such a shift could yield substantial positive effects.

What is renewable business energy?

Renewable energy refers to energy derived from naturally replenishing sources that are continuously available and can be sustainably harvested without depleting finite resources. These energy sources are considered renewable because they are naturally replenished on a human timescale and have minimal environmental impact compared to fossil fuels.

Common types of renewable energy include Solar, Wind, Hydropower, Biomass and Geothermal.

Your guide to renewable energy - green electricity

Electricity, which likely constitutes the largest portion of your utility expenses, primarily originates from the utilization of fossil fuels. However, these resources are non-renewable, meaning once depleted, they cannot be replenished, and the Earth possesses only a finite supply. Estimates vary, but many suggest that by around 2060, we may exhaust all reserves of fossil fuels.

This underscores the urgency to transition towards 100% renewable electricity within the limited timeframe available. Renewable energy sources such as solar, wind, biomass, or nuclear power offer low or zero-carbon alternatives for electricity generation.

Clear Utility is dedicated to assisting you in discovering the most suitable green electricity tariffs tailored to your requirements, offering exclusive rates not available elsewhere.

When searching for sustainable business energy, you'll doubtless see options for 'green gas' among energy providers. These tariffs feature power derived from green gas, also known as biomethane.

Green gas originates from various organic sources, primarily through the processing of organic waste like food and animal waste, as well as residues from food processing. Notably, biomethane production removes CO₂ from the atmosphere, thus mitigating greenhouse gas emissions.

Transitioning to 100% green business gas demonstrates your commitment to combating global warming. If you're dedicated to a sustainable energy strategy for the long haul, Clear Utility is on hand to offer the right advice and tariffs.

In addition to their finite nature, fossil fuels emit CO₂, contributing to the build-up of this gas in the atmosphere. Known as the greenhouse effect, increasing concentrations of this gas traps heat within the planet's atmosphere, leading to global warming. The consequences of global warming include the melting of polar ice caps, rising sea levels, and the occurrence of extreme weather events.

Recognising the urgent need for action, many countries worldwide advocate for decisive measures to address global warming. However, individuals can also play a significant role by finding ways to reduce personal and business CO₂ emissions. This entails transitioning away from fossil fuels and embracing renewable energy sources.

We got in touch with the team at Clear Utility Solutions after hearing about them from the Derbyshire Association of Local Councils. Our electricity contracts were due for renewal last year and the team secured us a great deal I can't recommend them highly enough. Brilliant service!
