Make the most of the UK Water Market Deregulation

water-dropletBusinesses need to start planning now for the most radical changes in the water industry for a generation. From April 2017, over 1.2 million eligible businesses and other non-household customers in England will be able to choose their supplier of water and wastewater retail services.

The smallest high street shops to the largest public authorities will be able to shop around and choose their retailer or renegotiate the existing deal.

if you prepare well for the changes in advance, deregulation of the water industry presents a fresh opportunity for your company to make significant savings when it comes to managing your utility costs.

Companies operating in multiple locations can use just one supplier rather than several, which allow them to negotiate price on a much larger volume and to simplify billing process. Some retailers will work with such clients to reduce their water bill through the introduction of water efficient kit and metering, in order to form the basis of a Water Performance Contract in which water efficiency savings will be shared by the client and the retailer.

In Scotland, where competition was introduced in 2008, Business Stream achieved more than £35 million in Water Efficiency savings, experienced a 26% increase in customer satisfaction, made available more than £30m worth of discounts, saved public sector customers more than £20m and helped customers save 16 billion litres of water and more than 28,000 tons of CO2 in the first 3 years.

Early birds in the market will snap the best deals, so don't wait until April 2017 to do your benchmark!
