In April 2017, UK water de-regulation has been scheduled in the UK. But what does this mean for you as a consumer? Ultimately, it means that non-domestic users will be able to choose their water suppliers for the first time. Because the whole of the water market will be opened up to businesses in England, companies will have complete choice over their water supplier.
England are therefore following in the footsteps of Scotland, who have had a de-regulated water market since 2008. You may be interested to know that, in fact, Scotland was the first country in the world to have a de-regulated water market at all.
What’s more, since then, Scotland has seen significant improvements in the water market, including efficiency and customer service. Therefore, having a de-regulated water market put in place in April 2017 looks set to be really exciting for England. In particular, for businesses in these countries.
Our leading energy management company can offer a quote for businesses who use 5000 or more litres of water annually, so perhaps, in 2017, we can provide an efficient, cost-effective water supply for your business.
Energy Procurement: Water
The Energy Desk can arrange a free water quotation for your business by tendering your requirements to a number of suppliers to find you the best deal. Whilst initial savings may not be massive, Scotland’s example dictates that savings can grow year upon year.
What’s more, we can quote for any size business, but have found the most immediate savings are usually for companies that spend over £10,000 on water a year.
Why choose The Energy Desk for your water supply?
Not only will our team provide you with a dedicated account manager to ensure a smooth and quick transition (whilst providing support throughout the contract), this service is completely free to all customers.
- If you’re a business in Scotland, TED can provide you with money saving water procurement
- For businesses in England and Wales, different rules apply despite there being savings to be made.
Also, in addition to your water supply, The Energy Desk will also offer you a free health check on gas and electricity to see if we can help you make any further savings.
