As a business owner, you’re constantly responsible for finding ways for your business to save money and improve profitability. You can never compromise your products or your customer service, so your cost-cutting options can be somewhat limited. Fortunately, there are a number of possibilities to reduce one of your biggest expenditures: electricity.
You may not realize it, but you have a choice in your electricity provider. Enter your zipcode in at Star Energy Partners and review what energy providers are available in your area, as well as what rates and service plans they offer. In most cases, all you’ll need to do is sign a contract and within seven days, you’ll be getting the same electricity from a new supplier with a new rate. Just be sure to carefully review the terms of service and the contract before you’re ready to commit, including:
- The length of the contract
- The type of rate available: fixed or variable (watch out for “mixed” fixed and variable rates as well)
- The type of early termination fees incurred, if any
In addition to finding the best possible electricity prices for business, you can make a number of operational changes to your workplace to maximize your efficiency. Spending a little time on an energy audit or changing your team’s workplace habits could result in less energy expenditure and therefore, lower electricity bills.
