A straightforward business solution in a complicated world

24th November 2021

A period of massive political and economic change has meant trading has been extremely difficult, in particular for small- and medium-sized firms, who will have seen their cash flow significantly hit.

Many businesses are looking for ways to take control of their finances, and the good news is that getting a smart meter is a small change that could make a big difference in trying to budget and plan for the future. How?

A smart meter allows businesses to wave goodbye to estimated billing by securely and automatically sending meter readings to their energy supplier.  That means that they receive accurate bills, rather than estimated bills, which offers the certainly of paying for exactly what they are using.

As meter readings are submitted automatically, business owners can also wave goodbye to time spent manually submitting them, allowing them to focus on bigger things.

As Glasgow hosts COP26 this year it’s a good reminder of everyone’s responsibility to become more conscious of their environmental impact.  Regardless of whether a business has three employees, or three thousand, we all should be aware of how much energy we’re using, and a smart meter is a step in the right direction.  From the moment a smart meter is installed, businesses are helping create a smart energy system which could ultimately help reduce all our carbon emissions.

Firms with 10 employees or less could be eligible and as a first step businesses should contact their energy supplier. To find out more please click here.
