However, implementing an effective plan for energy efficiency takes more than simply instating new rules and regulations – it also means ensuring that employees are engaged and educated about the importance of energy-saving practices.
Deep down, everyone knows that saving energy is a positive thing to do, but it can be a difficult message to take on board when delivered in cold, bland terms. In this way, you may want to think about creating a workplace campaign around energy efficiency, adopting slogans and building up team spirit to ensure that everyone wants to get involved. Why not come up with a few games, make a few humorous posters or offer small rewards for getting involved with the campaign? Personal touches really are key when it comes to getting people to take action.
You may think you know everything about saving energy, but you may be surprised about the seemingly innocuous employee habits that are costing you money. In this way, it may be a good idea to do a little internal research about how your business uses energy, the results of which can be disseminated across the company. Knowing where most of your energy costs are going should be the first step in tackling them. Why not conduct a brainstorming session and ask colleagues about their suggestions about reducing the organisation’s carbon footprint and energy bill?
One of the biggest obstacles to energy efficiency is simple human forgetfulness. To tackle this, it may be helpful to post friendly reminders near appliances and light switches to nudge scatter-brained employees in the right direction. They will soon get the hang of things!
Fortunately, we’ve set out some simple tips and tricks to ensure that your energy saving plans are a team effort, rather than a fruitless solo mission. Just remember that some employees may find change difficult, so make sure to present energy-efficiency as a positive opportunity, reminding them that the success and reputation of the business will reflect well on them as professionals.
Paul Kay was fantastic in securing us a great deal and explaining everything in full. Thanks and would wholeheartedly recommended.
Excellent service from Kenny in the Manchester office, he worked hard to find the best price for me and explained everything along the way.
Will definitely use him again in the future and would recommend.
I spoke to Paul Kay this morning who in the space of 30 mins looks to have halved my salon electric bill, he was personable, knowledgeable and honest. The proof will be seeing if the bills actually reduce and if so I will leave another review but so far an excellent service
I dealt with Utility Bidder over the past couple of days, amazing service and prompt. Paul Kay gave excellent customer service! would highly reccomend.
Without a doubt utility bidder has saved my sanity. They have sorted months of going around in circles with a supplier in under a week.
I would highly recommend to everyone I know.
Had a lovely phone call from Connor this morning, he was very helpful, explained everything very clearing and all I had to do was agree to everything that was suggested and he done the rest! Very happy with the service
I have just worked with Alex from Utility Bidder to sort our electricity contract today. He has got us an excellent price for our charity and it has all been sorted in half an hour (possibly less!). He was extremely helpful. THANK YOU
Had a call from Alex York who within minutes had arranged a new electricity contract with a new supplier. He was extremely courteous, professional and friendly. Highly recommend.
Robert Johnson has just completed my renewal contract with my energy supplier. He was very helpful and very efficient. It’s the first time I have used Utility Bidder and I will definitely use them again and highly recommend them. Thank you for making it so easy.

Rob says that thanks to the competitive rates secured by Utility Bidder in his studio, it would actually be cheaper to live there than at home! “We pay about £30 a month for gas during the winter and around £25 a month for electricity – and that’s despite having a lot of energy guzzling equipment such as studio lights and fan heaters. Our energy bills at home are far more expensive!”
