Water can seem like an endless resource that your business can use ‘on-tap’, as the saying goes. But the truth is that you’re paying for your access to this vital resource, and you’re going to need a great deal of water in many key industries across the UK.
For instance, if you’re involved in manufacturing, you’re going to be using water not only for cleaning and to help your staff wash, visit the bathroom, and eat and drink – but also in your industrial processes. Meanwhile, many businesses require industrial amounts of water – like hotels, restaurants, and spas.
So, here’s how your business can reduce its water charge this year – either by reducing the water that you use or by other means.
Changes in Your Contract
Yet another way in which you can lower your business water charges is to alter the terms of your contract. For instance, you could negotiate down your monthly fee, but suggest that you run with a higher overuse charge on your account, in case your business uses too much water in a month. Such an agreement would incentivise you to use less water, and may well appeal to a utility company, too.
It’s always worth remembering that you’re a business – and businesses can negotiate with all of their utility companies – on the phone, over email, or in person. But you can also outsource that negotiation and use experts like Utility Bidder UK to help you find the best water deals.
Water Use Reduction
If you’re paying per unit of water that you use – however much that may be – then the simple way to reduce how much you’re paying for your water is to reduce your consumption of this resource. Across your business, of course, this is easier said than done.
But, if you’re motivated to save cash – while saving the environment, too – you should start with staff behaviours. Ask your workers to learn how to reduce their use of water, so that whenever they’re in contact with an appliance or tap in your business, they know the best practice tips.
Meanwhile, there are many ways in which you can reduce the industrial, business-required use of water in your firm.
Reducing Industrial Water Use
You’ll have to talk to your engineers about this one – especially if you’re running a production line or another large warehouse facility that uses a lot of water. You don’t want to initiate a water-saving drive only to find that it means you’re producing worse products as a result.
Nonetheless, you should keep an eye on the water use that you see as vital for the running of your business – thinking creatively about ways in which you can reduce your usage.
Negotiating with Companies
While reducing your use of water is a good idea across the board, you should also look to conversations with your water utility provider to work out whether you can lower the charge on your business’ water consumption. It might well be that you’ve been struggling along with the same old contract for years – and that they are willing to be talked down in terms of your business water rates.
What’s more likely is that you’ll be able to search for other water providers for business that offer cheaper rates – and then you’ll be able to move your contract to work with that utility provider. This is ultimately the best way to save cash on your water bills.
