At SavingSmart, we work with clients from a variety of industries. One of the key sectors where our clients come from is hospitality, where a great deal of energy is used and there are big savings to be made.
Energy use in the hospitality sector
One of the reasons so many bars, pubs, restaurants and hotels procure their energy through SavingSmart is that they use an awful lot of it! Unlike other businesses, the hospitality sector continues working outside standard business hours, meaning hotels and restaurants have their lights on into the night, and have longer periods to heat or air-condition their premises, using up more electricity than other businesses. Food preparation requires both gas and electricity, with cookers, microwaves, fridges and freezers all using power. And if you host an event…well, just consider what it could be costing to run extra lighting, PA systems and that massive amplifier your live band brought with them.
The enormous amount of energy used by bars, pubs, restaurants and hotels presents a great opportunity for saving money. We love businesses with high energy use and can most likely obtain more competitive rates with a higher energy usage.
How SavingSmart helps restaurants and hotels save money
If your energy contract is due for renewal in the next six months, this could be a good time to find a better deal. The reason your restaurant is so successful is that you’re giving yourself over to it, body and soul. This is great news, but it probably means that phoning up energy companies to ask about rates is not a good use of your time.
However, liaising with energy companies is an excellent use of SavingSmart’s time and this service costs you and your business absolutely nothing.
We always offer the most competitive supplier rates on a simple price comparison. Before we start, we review your current bills and check if meter readings are actual or estimated, and we always verify your supply data with your current providers. Depending on how much energy your business uses, we may even hold a reverse auction, where suppliers compete on-line to offer you the lowest rate in front of your eyes.
Once new rates have been agreed, you enter into a new contract and start saving money. If required, we will check your bills, so you can be confident you’re only paying for the energy you use. We remind you when the contract is coming up for renewal – forgetting to renew a contract can be an expensive business but we can save you from these pitfalls.
Yes, actually! We also offer discounts on commercial water, fixed and mobile phones and broadband, as well as card payment services – chip and pin machines, e-commerce solutions and virtual terminals. Procure all your services through us and have just one point of contact for everything – we’re here to save you time as well as money.
We love helping bars, pubs, restaurants, cafes and hotels save money on their energy bills and more. Best of all, SavingSmart’s services are completely free to our clients – we offer an ongoing service not just a price, giving you peace of mind too.
