Why is energy monitoring so important?

Most businesses like to keep their costs low and want to reduce their energy bills – and in these uncertain times having control on your costs is vital. But it’s not just as straightforward as turning off the lights…

From our perspective, you can’t control what you can’t measure, so it’s important you understand the energy you use to be able to identify where you can use less.  

Getting a smart meter or automatic meter reader (AMR) meter installed is the first step, giving you the ability to analyse data around your usage.  Our Love and Loyalty team can work directly with your energy supplier to help you to get a smart meter fitted it you haven’t already got one.

“Controlling your costs is vital, but it’s not just as straightforward as turning off the lights…”

Once you have a meter installed it will give you the data you need to monitor your energy use. You can also make use of our Energy Insight platform – a free tool for all our customers that allows you to track your consumption easily and pinpoint any areas of high use or unusual activity. 

Our Monitor and Manage team can also make recommendations about a range of tools and products that could help you to reduce your energy use – this could be making sure you are paying the right charges on your consumption to LED lighting or self generation.
