Small businesses across the UK are facing an uncertain future as government support for energy bills nears expiration. The Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) estimates that some 370,000 small businesses could be at risk of job cuts or closure if they do not take steps to reduce their energy costs and become more sustainable.
However, sustainability need not come at a high cost. Voltage optimisation is one way in which small businesses can reduce their energy consumption without significant investment. By installing voltage optimisation systems, small business owners can reduce their electricity bills by up to 19%, making sustainability and cost-efficiency go hand-in-hand.
Having an energy reduction system such as voltage optimisation installed is beneficial not only financially but also from an environmental perspective, as small businesses can make sustainability a part of their company ethos. This will not only help to reduce the business’s energy bills but will also help them meet sustainability targets and reduce their carbon footprint.
By taking such steps and becoming more sustainable, small businesses can ensure they remain productive and can rebound after the pandemic is over. It is therefore essential that small businesses take sustainability seriously, both now and in the future.
If you are a small business owner, now is the time to consider sustainability and look into energy reduction systems such as voltage optimisation. Doing so could be the difference between surviving and thriving in the post-pandemic world.
