ScottishPower commits to helping small businesses
25th August 2020
ScottishPower says it has committed itself to new support measures for its small business customers across the UK to help enable a green economic recovery from the coronavirus pandemic. Throughout the outbreak, the company has implemented new ways to help small businesses work towards economic recovery.
The energy company is committed to helping business customers work towards a green recovery with a free online Energy Saving Toolkit, which was developed in association with the Carbon Trust. It is packed with advice on how businesses can start to plan their future and set up greener, more energy efficient processes to help reduce costs and emissions.
As part of its pledge to work with businesses to help them become more energy efficient,ScottishPower will be restarting the roll out of its smart meter programme later in 2020. Smart meters allow business customers to have visibility of how much energy their business is using and what that means in pounds and pence.
Andrew Ward (pictured above), CEO UK Retail at ScottishPower, said: “We know that for some businesses, the main concern just now is survival and we're here to help them through these incredibly challenging times. Equally, for those small business customers who are planning for the future, we're committed to supporting them with the right tools to reduce their energy costs.
"It’s an opportunity now for businesses to plan for their future and our Energy Saving Toolkit offers them a chance to map out more energy efficient measures they can take by comparing how similar businesses in the same sector have cut costs through things like lighting, heating and improved energy management."
