Utilitywise, one of the largest energy consultancies in the UK, helps businesses save money by lowering the amount of energy they use and thereby reducing the amount that is wasted. Many business owners do not realise how much energy is wasted, simply because their employees are not educated. Utilitywise helps these businesses to change their processes and procedures so that they can reduce their carbon footprint, while saving money on utility expenses.
One of the ways that Utilitywise helps customers is by taking a look at the contracts or tariffs that are currently in place. Energy experts at Utilitywise know exactly what to look for and will spot overcharges and other flaws, if there are any, in these current contracts. Accuracy is an absolute must when it comes to the amount of expense money being given over to utilities. The business owner is then informed of the changes that should be made in the current contracts in order for money to be saved. This process is called Account Care. It is the first process energy consultants at Utilitywise will do after someone becomes a customer. These experts have years of experience dealing with fluctuating costs in utilities, spotting inaccuracies in contracts and recommending ideas for change. Utilitywise technicians will install new equipment and help employees learn how to use them, in addition to educating them on why it is needed.
Regardless of the industry or size of the company, when a business saves on energy costs, it reduces operating costs. This allows for the “extra” money that would have been spent on utilities to go to other needed areas of business. Companies that strive toward better understanding of energy control within the confines of their business are not only helping themselves by lowering expense costs but also the environment, the planet and the people.
The Energy Health Check is the second process Utilitywise uses. Energy consultants take the result of the energy consumption report and compare it against other businesses that are in a similar industry, have a similar size and are located in the UK. By averaging the energy consumption by all similar businesses in the UK, Utilitywise is able to pinpoint a target amount of energy that is being wasted. Energy consultants will then meet with the business owner, help them to understand what must be done and make suggestions as to how to go about initiating the proper money-saving changes.
