Anglian Water Business has launched a partnership with water and energy efficiency specialist, SaveMoneyCutCarbon, designed to help its 125,000 business customers save millions of pounds in water and energy bills.
The partnership will highlight simple, cost-effective measures that can make a lasting impact on utility bills, offering business customers access to advice and discounts on energy and water saving products via an online portal provided by SaveMoneyCutCarbon.com.
According to a government study, SMEs can save on average 18% to 25% of their energy costs - £5,800 to £12,200 a year - by taking measures which pay for themselves within 1.5 years.
The Department for Energy and Climate Change study estimated that across the UK, energy efficiency could save SMEs between £1.26bn and £2.63bn a year, and cut annual carbon emissions by 8.7 million to 17.6 million tonnes.
Announcing the launch of the partnership, Bob Wilson, managing director of Anglian Water Business, said: “We want to make it easy for our business customers to make lasting savings on their energy and water bills by investing in efficiency. This new partnership gives them real business benefits – special rates on proven products and access to the hands-on expertise of a full service energy efficiency company.”
